John Wayne only won one Golden Globe in his career ... and it just sold at auction for a whopping $143,400.
The award -- for the classic 1969 film "True Grit" -- was one of 700 different items (awards, costumes, documents) put up for auction by Wayne's family.
A portion of the auction proceeds will be used by the John Wayne Cancer Foundation to help fund treatment, research and education.
