HONG KONG (AP) The yellow jumpsuit worn onscreen by martial arts legend Bruce Lee in the movie "Game of Death" has sold at a Hong Kong auction for $100,000.

The yellow suit with black stripes down the sides went to an unidentified telephone bidder at Spink auction house's Thursday night sale.

It was part of a collection of 14 items of Bruce Lee memorabilia that raised more than 2 million Hong Kong dollars ($258,000).

The suit was one of two Lee commissioned from his Hong Kong tailor for "Game of Death." The selling price of 780,000 Hong Kong dollars ($100,000) was about triple the auction house's initial estimate.

Lee died in 1973 at the age of 32 before he could complete the film, which was released posthumously in 1978.
