Can I make money on a dead celebrity's autograph?
It depends on the amount of autographs he gave in his life, and how he died. So, if it was a more violent death, the price of the autograph will go up. And if he was the type of celebrity that seldom gave autographs, again, supply and demand applies to even dead celebrities. And more importantly, if the death was more gruesome, then the autograph will go up in value.
Where does Kurt Cobain rank as a deceased moneymaker?
Celebrities make a lot of money in life, but sometimes they make more money after they have died. There's been a list to see what type of earnings, and we're not talking some pocket change. Last year, Elvis was bumped from the number one slot and replaced by Kurt Cobain, who had died supposedly from a drug over dose in 1994 when he was 27 years old. Cobain had managed, after taking a huge amount of drugs, to somehow shoot himself with a shotgun. Never the less, he still made 50 million dollars last year which put him at the top of the deceased celebrity earner list.
