Tupac Shakur’s Bullet-Dented Pendant Up for Sale
Tupac memorabilia continues to surface through dealers and auction houses, with the rapper's gold and diamond crown pendant recently listed by Moments In Time for a whopping $125,000, TMZ reports. The medallion is of particular note because it was dented by a bullet during a 1994 shooting in New York City as Pac was wearing it.
While Moments in Time owner Gary Zimet says that Pac's family gave them the piece to sell, a majority of the profits going back to them, Tupac's estate tells the celebrity news site that they are in strong opposition to the sale. As they put it, nobody, not even family members, has authority to sell any Tupac item, with a potential lawsuit awaiting whoever does.
Just last week, Goldin Auctions announced that a number of collectibles from the rapper’s lifetime were available for purchase including a previously unreleased essay written from his prison cell in 1995, a platinum plaque for Me Against the World, signed contracts from 1991 for Juice and Poetic Justice, Pac’s first contract with Digital Underground in 1991 and two framed displays of hand-written song lyrics to “Catchin Feelings” and “Wonda Why They Call You Bitch.” The auction is open from Oct. 10 to 29. Earlier this month as well Pac's prison bible was listed by Moments in Time for $54,000.
Pac fans with deep pockets could make the pendant, pictured above, or any number of one of a kind Pac items theirs for the right price. Based on the recent uptick in items cropping up, it seems safe to guess that more are coming.
