All have a percentage of their wealth in rare collectibles!
I have an extraordinary item in front of me. It belongs to the most valuable musician in the world. More valuable than Elvis, Bob Dylan or John Lennon. A man whose memorabilia sells for millions. His autograph and personal items are incredibly rare… Because his life ended tragically at the age of just 27. And it’s a loss still felt deeply by generations of fans around the world. I’m talking, of course, about Kurt Cobain.
The unlikely voice of a generation
You could call Nirvana the last great rock band. They revolutionised music and popular culture in the 1990s just as The Beatles did in the 1960s. Their 1991 album Nevermind shot them to a level of international fame few bands have ever achieved. As Rolling Stone magazine wrote: “No album in recent history had such an overpowering impact on a generation”. Today, just like the Beatles, every new generation discovers Nirvana for themselves. Their long-term musical legacy is well-established. And the fans who originally grew up with them in the 1990s are now passionate collectors, driving the market with record-breaking sums.
- $6 million – Cobain’s guitar used during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged show
- $4.5 million – the guitar he used in the video for ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’
- $334,000 – the cardigan he wore on MTV Unplugged
- $281,250 – a self portrait signed ‘Kurdt Cobain Rock Star’
No artist from the past 40 years even comes close to those figures. And that’s why the item I’m offering you today is so sensational.
A personal piece of rock history
This is a genuine lock of Kurt Cobain’s hair. Guaranteed 100% authentic. Trimmed from his head in the early 1990s at the peak of Nirvana’s fame. Kept by his hairdresser and later gifted to her niece on her 18th birthday. A lock of hair is the most personal piece of memorabilia you can own. And it’s incredibly rare. And I know of just one other example of Cobain’s hair that has ever appeared on the market. Those few strands sold for more than $14,000 in May 2021. This lock is far larger. And it’s offered with another rare item that increases its value even further. This one signed by Kurt Cobain himself.
A highly rare signature
The lock of hair is stored in this small heart-shaped box. And on the lid is Kurt Cobain’s much sought-after signature. It was acquired by a fan during Nirvana’s 1993 – 94 In Utero tour. (The tour cut short due to Cobain’s untimely death.) I’ve closely examined this autograph and compared it with many other known examples. Although it’s grown fainter over the years, it’s still clearly visible. And I can personally attest to its authenticity. Cobain has signed it as “Kurdt” – a variation of his name he frequently used to sign letters, drawings and autographs. (After it was originally misspelled as “Kurdt” in a 1988 magazine interview.) He’s also referred to as “Kurdt Kobain” in the liner notes for the Nirvana albums Bleach and Nevermind.
The most valuable man in rock
Kurt Cobain is the biggest name in music memorabilia collecting today. Nirvana are one of the most important and influential bands of all-time. And this is a unique piece of rock and roll history. Personal relics such as this are incredibly rare. And on the very few occasions they appear for sale, they achieve strong prices at auction:
- A few strands of David Bowie’s hair sold in 2016 for $18,750
- A lock of John Lennon’s hair sold in 2016 for $35,500
- A jar of Elvis Presley’s hair trimmings sold in 2021 for $72,500
The market for Cobain’s autographs and personal items is soaring, as his original fans approach their peak years for collecting. But Nirvana’s legacy means this is a long-term market, and it’s just getting started. We’ll be talking about them for decades to come. Devoted fans will always want items that bring them closer to their hero. And you can’t get any closer than this lock of Kurt Cobain’s hair. Presented in a heart-shaped box, signed just months before his death.
