Richard Jones USA - "SUPER BRUCE LEE COLLECTOR"
My name is Richard Jones, I am 40 years old and I have been a fan and
collector of Bruce Lee since 1974. I live in the great city of Indianapolis,
Indiana here in the U.S.A.
Bruce Lee collector Jeff Chinn who is a friend of mine, included a picture of
my collection and a short story about me in the March 1998 issue of Inside
Kung Fu magazine entitled the 18 Greatest Bruce Lee Fanatics.
My collection ranges from authentic autographed photos of Bruce, to a
personal handwritten letter from Bruce to a Green Hornet fan. Along with
magazines, posters, toys etc.,
My most prized posession is a never before published original snapshot photo
of Bruce taken at the 1964 Long Beach Karate Championships held by the late
Ed Parker. This photograph was taken by Grand Master Ralph Castro who was a
good friend of Bruce's in his early days in San Francisco. Grandmaster Castro
was my instructor in Shaolin Kenpo when I lived in SF.
He also taught my son
Brandon who he was very fond of and was one of Grandmasters best kids. He
thought so much of my son that when I moved away he gave me this snapshot
that he took of Bruce as a gift of our friendship.
I welcome all fans of Bruce Lee who would like to correspond with me
regarding Bruce Lee and memorabilia. I can be reached at this email address:
