Han Solo's Jacket Sells for $191K


(ABC)-- Han Solo's jacket, worn in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” sold for $191,000.

The bidding for the iconic jacket, signed by Harrison Ford, started at $15,000, according to IfOnly.com.

The company said more than 50 bidders vied for the famous threads before reaching the "a nail-biting finish" Tuesday afternoon.

Proceeds from the auction will support the NYU Langone Medical Center and “Finding a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures” (FACES), a condition that affects the 73-year-old actor’s daughter.

"I’ve been very impressed with the work NYU Langone and the FACES team have done in the field of epilepsy research," Ford said. "I hope this jacket will provide some means to further that exploration. This is a cause that’s near and dear to me, and unlike the cynical Han Solo, I’ve got a good feeling about this."
