It seems I read the same story every day, as someone is selling a piece of Kurt Cobain every single day. After his personal music tapes, his personal journal, his visa card, his green cardigan, a lock of his hair, and his funeral program, you would think there’s anything left to sell? But every day is a new day for a new eBay auction.
According to Alternative Press, Kurt Cobain’s personal checkbook was on sale on eBay for $1,650.00 with the following description stated:
‘Up for auction is one of Kurt Cobain’s personal checkbooks from when he was living in Olympia, WA at his 114 N. Pear St apartment. The checkbook contains blank 3 slips (1 checking deposit, 1 saving deposit, and 1 savings withdrawal). Also included in the auction is what I believe to be a storage fee receipt for either Kurt’s storage space or practice space.’
But if you wander a bit on eBay, there are a lot of chances you will find even more expensive memorabilia, like this signed medical form sold for $7,200 and described as ‘the bottom portion of an April 15,1991 Kurt Cobain Medical form’ from St Peters hospital. Apparently, Kurt went into the hospital for stomach pains and a gastroscopy.
First, I wonder how people get their hands on such personal documents, checkbook, hospital records, who is giving away such documents? Are they stolen? You have to wonder… Then there is another obvious question, how can any fan afford to buy stuff at such high prices?
Among other ridiculously priced items, you will find a few early concert tickets at $100,000, some signed promo poster at $30,000, many pictures, polaroids… And by the way, the Funeral program got sold for $985.
