Investing in Bruce Lee Rookie Cards

Bruce Lee is arguably the ancestral GOAT for MMA. He is also an icon in the world of martial arts film. In terms of Asian-American history, Bruce Lee was a true pioneer in television and movies. This is Bruce Lee’s 1966 rookie card. They are rare and highly undervalued (in my opinion). In the 1966 Green Hornet set there is also a rookie card variation with a yellow background.

Stand by Me

We wanted to follow
railroad tracks and sleep
under stars, maybe cook
up hot dogs without
a strict parent seeing
us wipe the grease
on our jeans. This
was 1986 when Polo
shirts were everything, not
following dreams or watching
morning deer, or thinking
about writing, or what
friendship could mean. But
Stand by Me let
in a little light
so we could remember
who we really are.
