Bruce Lee Personal Check August 6, 1970

Personal check, 6 x 2.75, filled out and signed by Lee, “Bruce Lee,” payable to Lerman & Son for $32.71, August 6, 1970. In fine condition, with expected bank stamps and cancellation holes (trivially affecting the first letter of the signature). Lerman & Son was an orthotics and prosthetics company in Los Angeles that produced medical braces for various ailments including injuries to the back, neck, arms, and legs. During the summer of 1970, Lee sustained damage to the fourth sacral nerve in his back while attempting to perform an exercise using a 135-pound barbell—roughly his own body weight at the time. Doctors speculated that he would never be able to practice martial arts again. While confined to a bed he began compiling notebooks full of his ideas on jeet kune do—ranging from technique to philosophy—which was published posthumously as Tao of Jeet Kune Do, now the best-selling martial arts book of all-time. Lee began training again after about six months of rest. Contrary to doctors’ opinions—and likely with the aid of a Lerman & Son brace—he returned to martial arts at full capacity within a year. Not only an extremely rare autographic piece, this check represents Lee’s incredible recovery fueled by his strong will to overcome. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.

Jim McDivitt’s Apollo 9 Flown ‘Our Lady of Loreto’ Medallion

Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Jim McDivitt, in full: “I certify that this Our Lady of Loretto [sic] medallion was flown on-board Apollo 9 on her flight in March, 1969.

Gordon Cooper’s Gemini 5 Jacket

Gordon Cooper’s personally-owned and -worn blue jacket bearing an official NASA ‘meatball’ logo patch on the left breast and a Gemini 5 ‘Eight Days or Bust’ patch on the right breast. The original Land Mfg. Co. Flite Wear tag is sewn into the collar area. Expected wear and light soiling from use, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Cooper’s wife, in part: “This authentic vintage Gemini V NASA ‘Flite Wear’ jacket…belonged to my husband L. Gordon Cooper. It was manufactured by Land Manufacturing Co. of Kansas and worn with pride by Gordo for many years.”

The affixed ‘8 Days or Bust’ mission patch is considered one of the rarest and most highly sought after patches associated with the manned space program—with only a handful ever having been produced; an authentic flown example recently sold at auction for $7,500. Material from this early period of the space program is scarce, and as one of Cooper’s personal items representing his historic mission this jacket is a unique and wonderful piece.
