Han Solo’s Leather Jacket From ‘The Force Awakens’ Can Be Yours
Just be prepared to write a fat check for it.
If you happen to be one of those poor souls clinging to the unlikely notion that Han Solo didn’t really die at the end of The Force Awakens, despite Harrison Ford’s admission to Jimmy Kimmel that he’s been trying to get the production company to kill off the beloved character for 30 years, Ford’s auctioning off his Han Solo jacket might be your cue to let go.
Oh, come on people. It’s just a movie, and considering the legendary 73-year-old actor is officially the highest grossing star of all time, I think he’s earned the right to do whatever the hell he wants. Plus, it’s for a good cause: all proceeds from the auction will go to NYU Langone Medical Center’s FACES (Finding a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures) program.
If you’re looking to own this invaluable piece of memorabilia, you can lock in a bid of $34,000 right now, and pray that no one ups the ante in the remaining 12 days of the auction. But considering the Chewbacca mask worn by Peter Mayhew sold for $172,000 in 2012, the considerably more iconic leather bomber will most likely end up fetching six figures.
Maybe Ford should consider selling his earring for a pretty penny, too. Because honestly, it’s kind of ridiculous.
