Default Chris Cornellís lengthy career includes very little cardboard




This is one of those black days for music fans.

Soundgarden and Audioslave singer Chris Cornell ó one of the iconic voices of grunge music in the 1990s and a successful performer in all the years since ó has died at 52.


Known for his intense guttural sound but also dramatic range, Cornell was part of six studio albums with Soundgarden and three with Audiosoave as part of a career that spanned more than 30 years and included two Grammy awards.


ďFor me to make a connection with music it has to either have a visceral nature, whether itís anger or aggression or that kind of passion which shows up in rock music, or there has to be some sort of melancholy and introspection, something about it that makes you feel your own pain,Ē he once told Rolling Stone.


But, when it comes to cardboard, thereís not a lot to go around to note his

lengthy career.





Badmotorfinger arrived from the band in 1991 along with albums from Nirvana and Pearl Jam, helping put Seattle on the musical map. The next year, the Cameron Crowe comedy Singles, which spotlighted real-world musicians alongside a fictional band of characters in the Seattle music scene helped propel the new genre into the mainstream (along with heavy rotation on MTV).






The only trading card showing the band around that time is from the 1991 Pro Set SuperStars MusiCards release, which has two versions of the card where its logo can be found in the upper left or on the lower right. Since there were so many of these made, you can find either for under $1.


His only other card appearances in all those years since appear to be limited to a couple of playing card decks that included musicians. So beyond that, collectorsí options are limited to CDs, magazines, posters and other merchandise along with autographed photos and guitars to document his career. (Nowís probably not the time to chase an autographed piece for your collection as the certified photo above previously sold for just $140 while asking prices on anything now are a bit more dramatic.)


For an extensive look at his career, check out this piece from The Washington Post.
