(AllHipHop News) It looks like owning a piece of Tupac’s history is turning out to be big business.
Just a week after it was announced that a steamy XXX letter Tupac wrote to a fan from jail was going up for sale, more of the deceased rap stars’ memorabilia is hitting the net.
This time, it’s the actual ticket Tupac held from the Mike Tyson-Bruce Seldon fight, on September 7, 1996.
The ticket is valuable, because that was the night Tupac was shot on the strip along with Death Row Records CEO Marion “Suge” Knight.
The ticket for the fight is owned by a man who claims Tupac gave them to him after Tyson Koed Seldon in the first round.
The owner of the ticket, which is expected to fetch at least $25,000, had it verified, and now he’s looking to sell.
“This incredible piece of music history has been graded Authentic and encapsulated by PSA/DNA (04778918),” according to Goldin Auctions’ website. “A third edition copy of Cathy Scott’s ‘The Killing of Tupac Shakur’ with bookmarked passages regarding the Tyson-Seldon fight is also included in this lot.”
Tupac would die six days later, in a Las Vegas hospital on September 13, 1996 from his gunshot wounds. His murder remains unsolved.
