A paper plate once used by Kurt Cobain to eat pizza just sold for…WHAT?

On April 23, 1990, Nirvana rolled into the 9:30 Club in Washington DC. As part of the rider, Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, and drummer Chad Channing chowed down on some pizza before the show. Once Kurt was done–and being a thrifty environmentalist he was—he used the paper plate he used for his ‘za to write out the set list for the night.

Someone had the foresight to saved that used paper plate. It has just sold at auction for US$22,400.

To repeat: This is a used paper plate.

And that’s not all that went up for sale. The cardigan Kurt wore for Nirvana’s last-ever photo shot sold for US$100,000.
