Kurt Cobain's credit card will be amongst the leading lots in the upcoming Paddle 8 sale 'Legendary: Memorabilia from Rock Gods and Pop Stars'.

The auction, which runs online until February 26, offers a large selection of personal items, signed photographs, albums and vintage posters from some of the biggest names in music history such as The Beatles, Jim Morrison, Bruce Springsteen and U2.

But the sale's two main lots come from two equally iconic, yet very different stars: Kurt Cobain and Frank Sinatra.

Cobain's Seafirst Bank credit card bears his signature on the reverse, and is accompanied by a King of Clubs Slot Club credit card holder.

Having been used by the Nirvana lead singer prior to his death in 1994, the card is expected to sell for $7,000-$9,000. For fans of Sinatra there's the legendary star's original New Jersey driver's license.

Signed in blue ink, the license lists his personal information including, height (5'9"), eye color (blue), and address at 220 Lawrence Avenue, Hasbrouck Hts, NJ. Dating from 1944, the license has an estimated price of $8,000-$10,000.

Further rare signed items will include a 1968 bank cheque signed by Jim Morrison, estimated at $3,000-$4,000, a set of cut Beatles signatures priced at $3,000-$5,000, and a handwritten U2 set list dating from 1983, priced at $4,000-$6,000.

Also up for grabs are rare vintage posters for performances by Sam and Dave, James Brown, Muddy Waters, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Nicks, The Rolling Stones and Johnny Cash.
