1980's Bobby Orr Bruins Charity Worn Jersey - Autographed - Photo Match
Lot #58

This black knit jersey by CCM was worn by Bobby Orr circa the late 1980’s while participating in a charity event at the Montreal Forum to benefit disabled children. Orr’s brilliant NHL career began at the age of 18 when in 1966-67 he made his debut with the Boston Bruins and went on to capture the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year. Despite a series of severe knee injuries and subsequent operations, Orr would dominate the sport over the next decade, re-writing the record books in the process. He spent his first 10 seasons with the Boston Bruins, led them to 3 Stanley Cups Finals and walked away with 2 Stanley Cup rings before spending an injury plagued 2 seasons in Chicago. Not only is Bobby considered the best defenseman in the history of the NHL, he is also part of the small group of 2 or 3 players to be discussed as the greatest to ever play the game and as such was ranked 2nd overall in the famous Hockey News publication from the mid 1990’s. Orr’s accomplishments are too lengthy to list in full but include an impressive array of hardware such as 8 Norris Trophies as the NHL’s best defenseman, 2 Art Ross Trophies as the NHL’s leading scorer, 2 Conn Smythe Trophies as the playoff MVP and 3 Hart Trophies as the NHL’s most valuable player. Not only was Bobby perhaps the best hockey player to ever live, he is part of the small list of the 20th Centuries greatest athletes.

This Boston Bruins knit jersey features the Bruins standard issue Bear Heads on each shoulder, a sewn on B spoked crest on front and Bobby's player number 4 and name, which are screened to the reverse. A beautiful blue sharpie signature in Bobby’s own hand sits regally on Bobby’s #4. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Bobby wearing this exact sweater at the Montreal Forum in the aforementioned charity event highlighted above. A fine looking collectible, worn and autographed by one of hockey’s all-time legends.
