LOS ANGELES, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- Kurt Cobain's personal credit card and card holder will likely bring in more than the $9,000 expected at auction.

Paddle8 auction service is putting the Seafirst BankCard Visa up for auction along with a "King of Clubs, Slot Club" card holder through Feb. 26. The card expired February 1995, less than one year after the Nirvana singer's death.

The credit card is signed on the back and appears to have a handwritten phone number on it.

The auctioneer expects the items will sell for between $7,000 and $9,000. The bid for the online auction was at $9,100 as of Friday evening.

Cobain's items join several others in the "Legendary: Memorabilia from Rock Gods and Pop Stars" auction.

Also up for grabs are Frank Sinatra's driver's license from 1944, a handwritten U2 set list from 1983, and rare photographs of the Doors, Jim Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Jimi Hendrix, the Who, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and the Beatles.
