Han’s Solo’s Jacket Sold for HOW MUCH???

Harrison Ford will no doubt go down as one of the all time greats.  Not only was he the whip-wielding archaeologist, but he was also our favorite smuggler in the  Star Wars  universe.  IfOnly recently hosted an auction on Tuesday that featured an iconic piece from  Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  No it wasn’t Chewie’s bow-caster or even Luke’s lightsaber, but rather Han’s own brown-leather jacket worn in the film.  

As reported by  The Wrap, this iconic piece of memorabilia went up for auction at a whooping $191,000!  Now that’s a lot of dough if you ask me.  Solo won’t be giving this money away to Kanjiklub or the Guavian Death Gang.  That much is certain.  Instead, all of the proceeds will be going towards charity specifically the NYU Langone Medical Center and FACES (Finding a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures).

The bid started at $15,000 between fifty bidders and would continue to soar until the amount sold at $191,000.  The piece is not only special due to Ford’s final appearance in a  Star Wars  movie, but the jacket was also signed and included a certificate of authenticity from Lucasfilm.

The jacket will go down as yet another unique piece of memorabilia from a  Star Wars  film.  It’s wonderful when you hear news like this knowing that the winnings directly go to a good cause.

Are you shocked at how much money the jacket went for as I was?  What piece of memorabilia would you like to own from a  Star Wars  movie?  I’d like to hear everyone’s thoughts in the comment section below!
