Tupac and Biggie's Arrest Fingerprint Cards Up on the Auction Block
According to TMZ's report, published on Saturday (Nov. 25), two fingerprint arrest cards by the late rappers Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. are up for sale. Momentsintime.com, one of the nation’s top memorabilia dealers, listed the unique pieces for a whopping $225,000 each. You can view the artifacts below.
Tupac's signed fingerprint record features his black-and-white mugshot and has him listed under his real name, Lesane Parish Crooks. 'Pac's card stems from his 1995 arrest for sexually assaulting a female fan named Ayanna Jackson. After being found guilty of sexual assault, Tupac was sentenced to 1.5 years in prison. However, he only served nine months of his sentence before being released. Additionally, Tupac's never before seen prison mug shot and prison ID are also up for sale.
Meanwhile, Biggie's signed fingerprint card features a black-and-white mugshot of the late Brooklyn rhymer and has him listed under his real name Christopher Wallace. Biggie's card stems from his June 1995 arrest in Philadelphia on a fugitive warrant from Camden, N.J., for allegedly breaking a man's jaw and stealing his cell phone, jewelry and beeper. B.I.G. was booked then for a robbery and aggravated assault charge. The robbery charge was later dropped.

Sotheby's describes Tupac's crown-shaped 14-karat yellow gold ring as being set with five carats of diamonds and cabochon rubies. The words "Pac & Dada, 1996" are inscribed on the bottom.
