A gray cardigan worn by Kurt Cobain during his last Nirvana photoshoot has sold for $75,000 at auction, Rolling Stone reports.

Cobain, who was known for sporting oversized grandad cardigans on the regular, donned the gray jacquard knit for a pre-In Utero photo session during the summer of 1993. Julien's Auctions, where the garment was sold, nearly quadrupled its highest predicted takings, with presale estimations sitting between $10,000 and $20,000.

Alongside the lot, Julien's Auctions shared a backgrounder on the item: “The shoot was meant to take place in Central Park in New York City, but due to Cobain being sick just hours before, the shoot was relocated to the basement of the hotel where the band was staying. Cobain showed up three hours late to the shoot and immediately asked for a bucket due to his nausea.”

The final $75,000 price isn't even the highest that one of Cobain's cardigans has fetched at auction, however. Back in 2015, one of the artist's knits sold for an eye-watering $137,500.
