Kurt Cobain's Blockbuster Video card is one of the wackier lots at Julien's Auctions' music memorabilia sale next month.
Bidding on the card has already surpassed $1,000 and made a mockery of its $600 valuation, with 19 days left of the November 4-ending auction.
Nirvana memorabilia is soaring in popularity due to nostalgic 30-somethings
It was issued to the Nirvana star at Blockbuster's 1508 North Orange Grove store in LA.
The auction will feature 22 lots of Nirvana-related memorabilia.
The most valuable is likely to be the 1992 MTV Music Video Award the band received for its video to Smells Like Teen Spirit. It has a $70,000 high estimate.
Cobain is thought to have employed the trophy as a doorstop in the downstairs bathroom at his house in Seattle.
Bidding stands at $32,500.
Also up for grabs are several letters and sketches by Cobain. while one of the most poignant pieces is an unused April 8, 1994 ticket for a Nirvana concert in Dublin, Ireland – the same day Cobain was found dead. It has a $400 estimate, with bids already at $200.
Nirvana collectibles are a boom area. The teenagers who grew up listening to Nirvana in the early 90s are now nostalgic, wage-earning adults. That translates to strong demand, and strong prices for the band's history – particularly those items connected with front man Cobain.
'Pharma Bro' Martin Shkreli paid more than $26,000 for Cobain's credit card in 2015. Cobain's Mosrite Gospel Mark IV guitar auctioned for $131,000 in 2006.
