As of the publishing of this article, you have a little over six days to purchase Kurt Cobain's personal credit card, if that's something you're into.

The serious Nirvana fan will pay at least $8,100 for the piece of plastic, as that's the current bid with bidding closing at 5pm EST on February 26. There have been a total of seven bids so far.

Auction house Paddle 8 describes the item as an "autographed Visa credit card". More specifically, it's a gold Seafirst BankCard with Kurt Cobain's signature in blue ballpoint pen. There also appears to be a phone number written in black ink beside the signature.

Included with the card is a "King of Clubs Slot Club credit card holder".

Cobain's credit card, which expired in February, 1995, is one of a handful of interesting items in Paddle 8's "LegendaryL Memorabilia From Rock Gods and Pop Stars" collection. Other items include Frank Sinatra's driver's license and a U2 setlist from the band's War tour.
