Kurt Cobain's credit card is up for auction.

The late Nirvana frontman's Visa card - which expired in 1995, less than a year after his suicide - from now-defunct Seattle bank Seafirst and leather 'King of Clubs Slot Club' card holder is expected to fetch around $9,000 in the online sale, which ends next Thursday (26.02.15).

Simeon Lipman, who has helped organise the sale for online auction house Paddle8, said:

"Cobain is one of the most collectable among the contemporary rock legends out there.

"This was a piece that was particularly interesting due to the personal nature. It's a different side of the person, and it's a relic. It's something that he touched and used and he kept in his wallet at one point in his life, and that makes this item quite special."

Other items included in the 'Legendary: Memorabilia From Rock Gods to Pop Stars' auction includes a handwritten U2 set list from 1983, a cheque signed by Jim Morrison, and Frank Sinatra's 1944 New Jersey driving license.

Rare posters for the likes of The Who, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, photographs of Blondie, the Rolling Stones and the Beatles, signed images of Sir Elton John and Madonna, and albums autographed by Pink Floyd, The Police, Rod Stewart and Elvis Costello are also included in the sale.
