Kurt Cobain Original Little League Baseball Photo
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,624.00
Before Nirvana, before the "Seattle sound," before "grunge," and even before Courtney Love, Kurt Cobain was, like many youngsters...a Little Leaguer! Here we offer Kurt Cobain's official Little League team photograph. Kurt is twelve years old in this photo. He is pictured in the back row, far right. "1979 Montesano Little League" appears in gold on the traditional Little League-style cardboard matting. This photograph apparently originates from the team's coach or a league official, as it is accompanied by a complete record of the team's statistics (9 x 11 inches), obviously kept as the official record of the season. Kurt went to bat forty times, hitting a very respectable .333, with thirteen hits (twelve singles and a double), collecting seven RBIs, four stolen bases, none runs scored, and registering eight walks. (You absolutely won't find this kind of information anywhere else.) This is a fascinating personal item connecting one of the music world's greatest legends to the National Pastime. Dimensions: 8.5 x 6.5 inches. Mint condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,624.00
