The Notorious B.I.G.’s Mugshot Selling for $36K
Sometime between 1994 and 1995, the rapper was arrested at a nightclub in New Jersey and booked at the nearby county jail. A man who was working there at the time asked Biggie for an autograph and ended up going home with his mugshot and a personalized note instead.
Now, its selling for $36K on Moments In Time.
