The dedicated hip-hop sale comes a few months after Heritage concluded its Treasures From Planet Hollywood auction, which amassed a total of $15.68 million in sales. Harrison Ford’s bullwhip from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and the axe wielded by Jack Nicholson in The Shining were among some of the iconic pieces on sale, but the real star was a piece of wood that was served as the controversial "floating door" from one of the final scenes of Titanic.
