April 23 (Bloomberg) -- A jacket, watch and platform shoes worn by martial arts star Bruce Lee are being offered in an online auction by Nate D. Sanders.

The top lot of memorabilia belonging to Lee, who died at age 32 in 1973, is a gray zipper cotton jacket signed by his widow and daughter, according to an e-mailed statement by the Los Angeles-based auctioneer. The jacket was put under the hammer as part of his estate in 1993, and has a minimum starting bid of $40,000, it said.

The sale contains 12 items including a shin protector with a minimum bid of $6,000, two pairs of well-worn platform leather shoes starting at $25,000 a pair, and a Timex watch for $20,000. The online sale ends on April 29, 5:00 p.m., Pacific time.

In December, a yellow jumpsuit worn by Lee in his last film “Game of Death” sold for HK$780,000 ($100,616) in Hong Kong at an auction by Spinks China.
