You Won’t Believe How Much This Fan Spent to Obtain Kurt Cobain’s Used Pizza Plate
Most fans try to emulate the lives of their favorite celebrities just to feel close to them. While we cannot exactly live their luxurious lives or buy the expensive mansions and cars they have, we can at least own some of the memorable artifacts they left behind after their untimely demise.
One classic example is the renowned singer and songwriter, Kurt Cobain who may have died many years ago, but is still alive in memory and the many possessions he left behind.
One of the artifacts was recently acquired by a fan, who paid an astounding $22,400 for a disposable object Cobain used only once, many years ago.
Let’s uncover what made this used object so special that his fans are willing to spend thousands of dollars on it.
On May 18, 2019, Julien’s Auctions sold Kurt Cobain’s used pizza paper plate to a die-hard fan for $22,400! Most people would’ve treated this disposable plate as trash, but as the saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
Aside from the fact that Cobain used the said plate to eat a slice of pizza, he also wrote the band’s setlist for their performance at 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C last April 23, 1990.
It isn’t the first time fans are willing to buy celebrities’ trash as part of their treasured collection. Let’s take a look at these celebrities’ discarded items that sold well in auctions.
In 2006, the renowned singer Britney Spears went to an unidentified hotel with her then-husband, Kevin Federline where the two enjoyed a mighty good time together eating corn dogs and egg salad sandwichs. However, the couple left their table without finishing their food.
When the waiter came in to take their plates away, Spears said her food shouldn’t go to waste. It prompted the server to put Spears and Federline’s unfinished food on eBay for auction.
The Golden Palace Casino won in the bidding to acquire Spear’s unfinished egg salad sandwich – we wonder how long it took for the expensive leftovers to go bad.
When Justin Timberlake was still a member of ‘N Sync, he attended a morning show with Z100 where they offered him French Toast for breakfast. Unfortunately, he didn’t finish his piece of toast and one station employee decided to auction it on eBay!
The partially eaten toast was sold for an astounding $1,025! That’s probably the most expensive piece of bread the buyer will ever eat.
The employee also revealed a 19-year-old fan named Kathy Summers emerged victorious in the bidding. The fan also speculated maybe Justin didn’t finish eating the toast because there’s a burnt side on it.
In 2008, Scarlett Johansson did an interview with Jay Leno while she was feeling under the weather. Leno offered Johansson some tissues, which she accepted gratefully to blow her nose. She then grabbed some pen to sign the tissue before chucking it in a bin.
Despite the dangers in the diseased tissue, it didn’t deter the fans from owning the signed object. They sold it for an astounding $5,300. Another fan also paid 20,000 British Pounds to have a 20-minute date with the Avengers star!
