For sale: Bruce Lee’s iconic yellow jumpsuit

So you’ve heard of Han Solo’s blaster being auctioned off. If that’s space weapons aren’t your thing (BLASPHEMY!) you might want to take a gander at a piece of martial arts history. Bruce Lee’s trademark yellow jumpsuit, which he wore in Game of Death, is up for auction. The costume is synonymous with Bruce Lee as it was one of his final costumes on screen before his untimely death midway through filming the said movie. It’s expected to sell somewhere between $32,000 and $39,000.

Other items like a pair of yellow lacquered nunchaku is expected to sell for $26,000-$38,700, while a bamboo whip might fetch $9,000-$10,000.

Not coincidentally, this year marks the 40th death anniversary of Lee. Buyers are sure to fight for this one as many want to magically absorb Lee’s powers by wearing the suit, as I would if I had $39,000.

UPDATE: The jumpsuit sold for $100,000.
