Harrison Ford's Jacket From Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens Sells For $191,000

If you could own a piece of Star Wars history, how much would you pay for it?

That was a question posed to an unnamed bidder through online auction site IfOnly, and the answer was $191,000.

The prize? Harrison Ford's jacket from Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. The jacket itself would be enough for many, but Ford threw in a bonus by signing the inside of the jacket along with the date.

As for the money, Ford is putting that money to good use and donating it to the NYU Langone Medical Center and the FACES foundation.

The money goes directly to funding research for epilepsy, and that cause holds a closer meaning for Ford, as his daughter Georgia is being treated for epilepsy at the same hospital.

Speaking about his daughter's condition at an event earlier this year, Ford told New York Daily News: "When you have a loved one who suffers from this disease, it can be devastating.

"You know how it affects their lives, their future, their opportunities and you want desperately to find mitigation. You want to find a way that they can live a comfortable and effective life."

In December last year a rare set of Star Wars merchandise was sold at auction for a whopping $500,000.

More than 600 items were sold in the auction organised by Sotheby's and eBay which was held just before the new film was released.

Some of the items that sold for the highest prices included a Luke Skywalker action figure that went for $25,000, a Star Wars coin set which was bought for $27,500 and an Empire Strikes Back seven figure multi-pack which sold for $32,500.
