Two historically significant items from Tupac Shakur’s past are now up for sale, giving fans and collectors an opportunity to own a piece of the late rapper’s legacy. These exclusive items, a previously unseen booking photo and Tupac’s prison identification card, are available for purchase on Momentsintime.com.
The first item up for grabs is an unseen booking photo of Tupac from his time at the Clinton Correctional Facility in New York during 1995. This rare photograph is listed for $35,000 on the website. However, the real gem of the collection is Tupac’s prison identification card, which holds an impressive price tag of $75,000.
What makes this identification card particularly rare and sought after by fans and collectors is that it was issued as a replacement for Tupac after he lost his original card. It comes complete with his signature and a simple handwritten note that reads, “I lost my ID and need a new one. Thank you.” These iconic items were initially given to a family member upon Tupac’s release from prison. They have since changed hands over the years, eventually landing in the possession of a private collector.
Tupac Shakur served a nine-month prison sentence in 1995 for his conviction on sexual abuse charges. Notably, this isn’t the first time pieces of his history have been sold at auction. In 2019, Tupac’s original prison identification card was auctioned off and fetched an impressive $30,000 after an initial bid of just $2,000.
The recent reopening of Tupac’s murder case, with the arrest of his alleged killer, Keefe D, has sparked renewed interest in the rapper’s life and legacy. As a result, these items are expected to attract even more attention from devoted fans and collectors alike. If you’re interested in owning a piece of Tupac’s history, it’s advisable to act swiftly, as they are likely to be in high demand.
