Nirvana Autographed CD Fetches Five Figures on eBay
Crazy but true: a Nirvana CD signed by all three members of the band recently sold on eBay for a whopping $10,024.99 including shipping.
The valuable item was a CD sleeve of ‘Nevermind’ signed by Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic with a letter of authenticity verifying the legitimacy of the signatures. Also included were ticket stubs from various Nirvana concerts, including several shows in April 1994 and one from a 1992 concert in Valencia, Spain.
Unlike much of the other rock memorabilia on eBay, the Nirvana package was not listed as an auction. Instead, it was assigned a “Buy it Now” price, which meant that buyers had to meet the asking price in order to make the purchase. The item history shows that the Nirvana package was previously listed twice and failed to sell. Nearly 4,000 people viewed the listing before some rock fan with deep pockets finally decided to meet the $9,999 asking price.
‘Nevermind’ is widely regarded as one of the greatest rock albums ever made, but we’re blown away that someone would shell out what to many people would be half a year’s salary for this autographed CD. How much would you be willing to pay for a Nirvana autographed CD?
