In the territory of cinematic legends, the unbeatable Indiana Jones stands as a timeless icon. Recently, a piece of that enduring legacy surfaced on the auction stage –a shirt donned on-screen in the inaugural masterpiece, Raiders of the Lost Ark.
What’s truly astonishing, this piece of cinematic history has garnered a staggering price of over $150,000.
The original shirt, famously worn by Harrison Ford, had been lost for years after the movie’s release. It changed hands through various owners and even popped up in charity shops and online marketplaces like eBay.
However, forensic analysis confirmed its authenticity as a genuine article, prompting its auction price to new heights.
With a starting bid of $180,000, experts predict it will ultimately fetch an astounding $350,000. This shirt isn’t just a relic from the past; it played a crucial role in creating Indiana Jones’ classic look in this year’s Dial of Destiny.
Costume artists used the original shirt as a reference to recreate the iconic outfit for the latest film.
While Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny faced challenges at the box office, failing to fully capitalize on the character’s popularity, it still garnered support from devoted fans.
Disney announced its streaming release in December 2023, with physical media versions following later that month.
Don’t miss the legendary adventure when Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny arrives on Disney+ on 1st December 2023, continuing the legacy of this iconic archaeologist.
