Kurt Cobain Sweater Expected to Fetch up to $60,000 in Auction.

Kurt Cobain 
Kurt during Nirvana's MTV Unplugged taping 22 years ago, his sweater is going to be auctioned. The sweater will be sold via a Julien's live auction block and is expected to fetch up to $60,000. "The Manhattan brand sweater is a blend of acrylic, mohair and Lycra with five-button closure (one button absent), with two exterior pockets, a burn hole and discoloration near left pocket and discoloration on right pocket, size medium," the cardigan's official description reads.
 It will also be accompanied by a letter of authenticity signed by a "Cobain family friend," who donated the late singer’s cardigan to the auction. Nirvana's MTV Unplugged appearance was filmed in November 1993 and first aired the next month. A recording of the performance was released in November 1994, seven months after Cobain's suicide.  In addition to the cardigan, the auction will offer an actual lock of Cobain's hair, which was originally given to doll maker and comic artist Dame Darcy by Courtney Love, Cobain's wife. The lock is 10 inches long and is expected to sell for up to $10,000. Bidding for both the cardigan and the lock of hair will open Nov. 7.
