The cardigan Kurt Cobain wore during Nirvana’s iconic MTV Unplugged concert in 1993 is part of a large selection of music memorabilia going up for auction 11/7 through Julien’s Live, Rolling Stone reports. Julien’s expects to fetch between $40,000 and $60,000 for the garment, “a blend of acrylic, mohair and Lycra with five-button closure (one button absent), with two exterior pockets, a burn hole and discoloration near left pocket and discoloration on right pocket.” A lock of Cobain’s hair is also being offered for $4,000. The hair belongs to doll maker Dame Darcy, who received it from Cobain’s widow Courtney Love when Love commissioned a doll for their daughter Frances Bean. Other notable items in the auction: Ringo Starr’s kickdrum head from the Beatles’ Ed Sullivan Show performance, Elvis Presley’s 24-karat gold leaf grand piano, and Steven Tyler’s insurance card. Find out more about these exciting offers at Julien’s Live.

UPDATE: According to KIRO 7 in Seattle, Cobain’s sweater has sold for $140,800.
