Personal check, 6 x 2.75, filled out and signed by Lee, "Bruce Lee," payable to Greenway Traveling for $129.68, August 16, 1966. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, with the crisp signature graded "MINT 9." In fine condition. Lee was living in a tiny apartment on Wilshire Boulevard in Westwood, California, preparing for his television debut on The Green Hornet, when he wrote this check. Producer William Dozier was so impressed by Lee's audition for the scrapped show Number One Son, that he cast Lee as Van Williams' crime-fighting sidekick Kato. Although The Green Hornet was canceled after a single season, Lee's iconic portrayal of Kato enabled the actor to make three crossover appearances on the wildly popular live action Batman series between 1966 and 1967.
