Gentlemen, remember all those times you fantasized about being Han Solo? Remember thinking, “If only I could dress like Han.” Well, now you can and it’s for a good cause. No, not the cause you had that involved picking up women from all over the galaxy. The cause is epilepsy and seizures.
NYU Langone Medical Center and FACES (Finding a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures) has partnered with benefit auction site IfOnly and is auctioning Han’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens jacket, signed with a certificate of authenticty. While this isn’t original trilogy cool, this is still amazingly cool. How cool? As of now the minimum bid is $34,000. That kind of cool.
To be honest, with that price tag this isn’t really happening for most of us geeks. For someone though, that dream of being Han Solo will come a little bit closer on April 11th when the auction ends.
