Bruce Lee Auction Main


When Bruce Lee left this earth far before mankind needed him to, he also left a lot of stuff behind so someone could hold the world's coolest garage sale.

The world's largest collection of Bruce Lee memorabilia went on sale today in Hong Kong and the lineup features more than just your average half-eaten sandwich or used celebrity Kleenex.

For instance, the fur-lined jacket that he wore during his final incomplete film "Game of Death" netted $77,000 from an auction buyer in attendance. Other items up for sale include a personal handwritten letter that Lee wrote to his kung fu instructor and close friend Taky, his childhood student IDs, and a martial arts book inscribed by the actor. So if you've got $880,000 around to buy the whole lot, stop wasting that money on movie memorabilia, and call me up so we can go on a three-week bender that may or may not end in international waters.
