Kurt Cobain's Hagstrom Blue Sparkle Deluxe Guitar

Kurt Cobain would have been 50 years old this month, and to honor the rock legend one of his guitars is going up for a special auction. Kurt Cobain's Hagstrom Blue Sparkle Deluxe Guitar was owned by the Nirvana frontman in 1992, and then gifted to a close friend by Courtney Love in 1994 following his death. It's been unplayed for decades and remains in nearly the same condition as it was while in Cobain's possession. 10 percent of proceeds from the auction will be donated to a Portland-based nonprofit that helps people transition from homelessness to housing in the Pacific Northwest.

  • 1972 Nike Moon Shoe

    Named after its signature (and now deteriorating) tread that resembled the footprints left behind by astronauts, this 1972 Nike Moon Shoe is a rare relic. Handmade by Geoff Hollister under the direction of Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman, they were worn in that year's Olympic Trials by marathoner Bruce Mortenson, and were one of just a dozen pairs made. The nylon uppers were imported from Japan, the now-iconic Swooshes attached with fishing line, and the outsole cut, glued, and stitched by hand, making these a truly unique piece of sneaker history.

  • Nikon 1 Vintage Camera

    Offered from the collection of Japanese collector Tad Soto, this Nikon 1 Vintage Camera isn't just "vintage": it's the earliest known surviving production Nikon in the world. Just the third ever made — it dates to April, 1948 — it's in remarkably good condition, arriving with its original Nikkor-H 2/5cm lens and matching cap. It also still has its original shutter, original "Made in Occupied Japan" baseplate, and original double-strap carrying case. An extremely rare piece of still-functional photographic history.
