Here’s your chance to own a big piece of Notorious B.I.G. history … a hubcap from the SUV the rapper was shot in is hitting the open market.
The folks over at Moments In Time are brokering the sale of one of the 4 hubcaps from the infamous GMC Suburban Biggie was riding in when he was gunned down March 9, 1997, as he left L.A.’s Petersen Automotive Museum.
We’re told the seller originally got the hubcap from a family friend who owned the rental company which owned the SUV … so it’s been around the block. We’re told the seller had the hubcap for years and just decided to unload it, with an asking price of a cool $150,000.
As you can see … the hubcap still has part of the sticker that was slapped on it some 24 years ago, and you can still make out the advertisement for his 1997 album, “Life After Death.”
The sticker says, “THINK B.I.G. MARCH 25 1997,” which was the album’s release date.
You can see the hubcap with the sticker in the crime scene photos from back in the day … after B.I.G. was shot 4 times in a drive-by while the SUV was stopped at a red light on Fairfax and Wilshire Blvd.
Biggie’s murder remains unsolved and the case is still open.
