Cobain wore the sweater, a green acrylic and mohair cardigan with a geometric pattern design, when photographer Jesse Frohman took his photo in the summer of 1993 for the upcoming Nirvana album, In Utero. The grunge icon died several months later in April 1994.

The sweater sold over the weekend at a sale held by Julien's Auctions. It had been expected to fetch between $20,000 and $30,000.

The auction also included a paper pizza plate Cobain used to hand-write a set list for a Washington, D.C. Nirvana show in 1990. That sold for $22,400, well above the expected price range of $1,000 to $2,000.
