For the special price of $225,000, you can get your hands on the arrest fingerprint files of the late rappers Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G.

The California-based autograph broker Moments of Time announced the sale of the officially signed fingerprint cards taken for the arrests of Tupac and Biggie. Photographs show the arrest records taken from Tupac’s arrest in February 1995 and Biggie’s arrest in June 1995.

Die-hard fans or autograph enthusiasts can obtain the records for $225,000 apiece. Moments of Time confirms the authenticity of both items or a full refund of the purchase price.

Tupac’s fingerprints were taken after he was sentenced on Feb. 7, 1995, to 1.5 to 4.5 years in prison for allegedly sexually abusing a fan but acquitted of weapons and sodomy charges, XXL reports. He was housed at the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York.

The arrest came one month before the release of his third album, Me Against the World. During his sentence, Tupac married his girlfriend, Keisha Morris, but the union was annulled 10 months later.

After serving nine months, Tupac was released on Oct. 12, 1995, after Death Row Records CEO Marion “Suge” Knight put up $1.4 million for the rapper’s bail. In exchange, Tupac released three albums under Death Row.

While in jail, his nemesis, Biggie Smalls, real name Christopher Wallace, was arrested in June 1995 on a fugitive warrant following a concert in suburban Philadelphia. The warrant stemmed from a May 6 incident in Camden, New Jersey, where the rapper allegedly broke a man’s jaw and stole his portable phone, jewelry, and beeper. Shortly after his arrest, he performed at the Pulsations nightclub.

Shakur was fatally shot on September 13, 1996, and Biggie was killed March 9, 1997. Their premature deaths have long been the subjects of speculation and fascination.
