Kurt Cobain’s 26 Year Old Sweater Sold For $340,000 At Auction

Kurt Cobain’s 26 Year Old Sweater

The sweater that music icon Kurt Cobain wore during his famous Nirvana performance on MTV’s “Unplugged” in 1993 has reportedly sold for $334,000, making it the most expensive sweater ever sold at an auction.
The unwashed green cardigan, still marked with cigarette stains and with one potential flaw (missing a button) was estimated to rake in between $200,000 and $300,000. Four years ago, the current owner Garrett Kletjian, bought it for $137,500. He admitted he had worn the sweater just one time, but took it off after 40 seconds.

“It’s kind of a weird, powerful thing when you do something like that, when we put on somebody else’s [clothes],” Kletjian, a former race car driver, said. “It’s like when they say you should walk in somebody else’s shoes. When I put that on, I was like, ‘Ah, no. God, I don’t want to wear this.'”
There’s been a major increase in the value of Cobain’s items in the past two years. Earlier this year, the sweater Cobain wore during his last photo shoot with Nirvana sold for $75,000, more than double Julien’s estimate. His left-handed Fender Mustang guitar is expected to sell for about $400,000 at the auction at New York’s Hard Rock Cafe.
