Here's where to buy Kurt Cobain's credit card, or U2's handwritten set list from 1983
Fancy owning Kurt Cobain's drivers licence, or a set list handwritten by U2 back in 1983, or even Frank Sinatra's driving licence dated 1944? Well now you can.
Memorabilia from music stars is going up for auction with Paddle8 as part of their Legendary: Memorabilia From Rock Gods and Pop Stars collection.
Cobain's Visa card is one of the items expected to earn the highest bid - somewhere between $7000 and $9000 given it is signed by Cobain and expired in February 1995, shortly after his death.
Another highly prized item is a U2 setlist from 1983 which is handwritten in red marker pen and which features the original black tape used to stick it to the stage. It also comes with a February 27, 1983 Capitol, Aberdeen, Scotland concert ticket stub from the same tour. Together they're expected to fetch $3,300.
Frank Sinatra's New Jersey driving license from 1944 is signed by him and includes information including his height (5'9"), eye color (blue), and address at 220 Lawrence Avenue, Hasbrouck Hts, NJ. It would set you back a cool $8,000-$10,000.
There's a signed cheque from Jim Morrisson for $2,300 - it's dated 7/26/68 and is for $2,00, made out to Jim Morrison, and endorsed with his rare signature.
There are more affordable items up for grabs too, including photos of Blondie, Jim Morrisson, The Beatles and concert posters for Sam & David, and BB King/Muddy Waters - starting at just $100 for unsigned versions.
The auction ends February 26. For more details check out Paddle8.com
