Kurt Cobain’s cardigan auctioned off for $140,800

On Saturday (7th November), over 300 items of music memorabilia went up for auction, including Kurt Cobain’s famous MTV Unplugged jumper (pictured), and a lock of his hair, leftover from a doll Courtney Love had made for their daughter, Frances.

There were also various lots from The Beatles, the jacket Michael Jackson wore to Elizabeth Taylor’s wedding, Elvis Presley’s pyjamas, Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance face mask, Madonna’s Evita and Vogue skirt suit, and a basket once owned by Jimi Hendrix.

Well, now the auctions have finished – and you can have a nosy at how much each sold for. Some of the highlights include:

Kurt’s cardigan – $140,800
John Lennon’s guitar – $2,410,000
Beatles drum head – $2,050,000
Elvis’ gold piano – $610,000
