Own Some History: Tupac's 1995 Prison ID Card Is Headed To Auction
For a starting figure of $2,000, you can be the proud new owner of Tupac Shakur’s prison I.D. from his infamous stint at the Clinton Correctional Facility in 1995.
Per TMZ, Heritage Auctions received the late rapper’s I.D. for when he was sentenced at the N.Y. facility in connection to the sexual abuse of a then-19-year-old woman. The starting bid begins at $2,000.
“[Tupac] was required to carry this laminated I.D. card at all times,” writes the site. “Pac started his sentence on Valentine's Day, and 2 weeks later he was issued this prison I.D. -- which includes his signature.”
This wouldn’t be the first piece of Tupac memorabilia to go to auction. Earlier this year, a wealthy 60-year-old man became the new owner of a piece of erotic artwork drawn by Tupac while incarcerated. The image was of him having sex with his then-girlfriend, and it sold for $21,155.75.
“In April 2018, it was reported that the breakup letter form Tupac to former flame Madonna would be up for auction via the GottaHaveRockAndRoll auction house, in addition to other items from Tupac's personal life such as satin underwear and intimate photographs,” VIBE reported in February.
