Han Solo’s jacket — the one worn by Harrison Ford in the Star Wars Film “The Empire Strikes Back” — could fetch over a million dollars when it goes for the auction block in September.
The jacket will be part of an upcoming sale of rare film and TV memorabilia that will include, among other items, the robe that Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) wore in “Fight Club” and Rose’s (Kate Winslet) farewell letter from “Titanic.” The sale will be held by Prop Store at London’s BFI IMAX on Sept. 20, 2018.
“Our auction will once again raise the bar, presenting some of the most iconic cinematic artefacts of our time,” said Prop Store CEO Stephen Lane in a statement.
After Han Solo’s jacket — the priciest piece being auctioned — the second most expensive item is another bit of cinematic history worn by Harrison Ford, Indiana Jones’ signature fedora from “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” estimated to go for up to $397,000.
Overall, the sale is expected to generate over $4.6 million and will be live-streamed.
