Paper Plate Kurt Cobain Ate Pizza Off One Time Sells For $33K At Auction

An extremely bizarre piece of Kurt Cobain memorabilia has just sold for a small fortune at auction.

Someone paid AUD $33,000 (USD $22,400) for a paper plate that the late Nirvana frontman once used to eat a slice of pizza off, and then scribble a setlist on.

The plate was utilised by Cobain shortly before taking the stage at Washington DC’s historic 9:30 Club on April 23rd, 1990.

Not only does it feature a setlist penned on it in black texta by Cobain’s own hand, it also comes with a “distinct pizza stain on the back,” according to a letter of authenticity provided by Johnny Riggs of the band THUD, who opened for Nirvana that night.

“That makes it more cool than just a piece of paper. It’s a lightly-stained pizza plate from Kurt’s own meal!” Riggs writes.

The paper plate went under the hammer at California’s Julien’s Auctions, where recently another piece of Nirvana history — an old sweater reportedly worn by Cobain during his last official photoshoot — sold for almost AUD $110,000 (USD $75,000) this past weekend.
