Bruce Lee items to be sold at Hong Kong auction
HONG KONG: Thirteen items belonging to the late kung fu legend
Bruce Lee, including a 1966 letter he wrote and a fur-lined coat will go
under the hammer in a Hong Kong auction next week, a report said
The sale, which could raise up to HK$880,000 ($112,900), is believed
to be the largest-scale auction of his memorabilia in the southern
Chinese city, where Lee was raised before moving to the United States in
his late teens. Items to be sold from his estate include a letter he
wrote 45 years ago to a friend in which the martial arts specialist
talked about the television series The Green Hornet, in which he played
Kato, a confidant of the superhero.
“The item is meaningful in the sense that it can allow us to
understand more about Bruce Lee’s views and what he thought about his
work at that time,” Wong Yiu-keung, the Bruce Lee Fan Club chairman told
the South China Morning Post.
Other items to be sold at the August 6 auction include a dark-blue
fur-lined coat which was made around 1973 for Lee’s film Game of Death,
a membership card for his kung fu institute, and a name card of Lee.
