Bruce Lee "Enter the Dragon" Costume Card in 2009 Upper Deck Piece of History Baseball

I was just looking at the checklist for the Hollywood memorabilia cards for the upcoming 2009 Upper Deck Piece of History Baseball and this caught my attention:

Bruce Lee, Enter the Dragon (Robe)!!!!!!!!

Yes! There's also a trench coat from Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, Will Ferrell's shirt and pants from Old School and Will Smith's robe from Ali. The checklist rules. However, so did last year's but without the rights to use their names, let alone images, confusion set in and the cards were among the most disappointing for me for the year. 

Here's the complete checklist (note a couple are merely worn by the star, not necessarily in a particular film):
Name Movie Memorabilia
Drew Barrymore Charlie's Angels Motorcycle Pants
Heath Ledger Lords of Dogtown Shorts
Sean Penn 21 Grams Shirt
Denzel Washington John Q Baseball Jersey
Denzel Washington Hurricane Sweater
Will Ferrell Old School Shirts/Pants
Will Smith ALI Terry Cloth Robe
Mike Myers Austin Powers III Costume 
Rachel Mc Adams Notebook Slip
Tom Hanks Da Vinci Code Blue Shirt
Arnold Schwarzenegger End of Days Sweater
Bruce Lee Enter the Dragon (before his death) Robe
Humphrey Bogart Casablanca Trenchcoat
Sidney Greenstreet Casablanca Robe
Adam Sandler Shirt Spanglish
Ben Stiller Shirt Zoolander
John Wayne Shirt Worn
Greta Garbo Dress Worn
Ben Affleck Robe Gigli
John Hurt Costume Top Highlander
John Hurt Costume Top Highlander
Pamela Anderson Skirt Worn

If they look anything like last year's version with no photo...I'll stick with the Allen & Ginter relic card of Lee.

"Enter the Dragon (before his death)"

Was "before his death" actually listed on the checklist? I can't imagine getting an article of clothing he wore after his death.

The Humphrey Bogart card will probably be out of my league, but Sydney Greenstreet? That's obtainable! Plus he was in Maltese Falcon which I like way better than Casablaca.

And um... Drew Barrymore. motorcycle pants. Whoa.

I might have to look for the Rachel McAdams slip!
