Would you wear a sweater that has not been washed in 26 years? Most likely you would say no. Would you wear it if that sweater was worn by Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain during his classic performance that was recorded for ‘MTV Unplugged’.
“It’s very important that we don’t wash it,” Darren Julien of Julien’s Auctions told Rolling Stone. “The stains are still there. There’s even cigarettes burns that you can see on the sweater.” The same auction house sold the sweater in 2015 for a winning bid of
$137,500, far exceeding the sweater’s pre-auction estimate of $60,000. How much do you think it will go for now? Should items like this even be up for auction?
