Willie O’Ree Boston Bruins Autographed Matted and Framed Display – Includes a VB Card Show LOA and photos of O’Ree Signing the Display
Lot #605

This beautiful matted & framed display, measuring 17 x 25, commemorates Hall of Famer Willie O’Ree. O’Ree, known as the “Jackie Robinson” of ice hockey, was the first African American to play in the NHL. O’Ree made his NHL debut on January 18, 1958, playing two games that season. O’Ree would also play with the Bruins in 1960-61, while also compiling a long successful minor league career.

On January 19, 2008, the Bruins and the NHL honored O’Ree at the TD Garden in Boston, marking the 50th anniversary of his NHL debut.

This beautiful display has two 4 x 6 photos of O’Ree at the top. On the bottom left is a Bruins line-up card from January 19, 2008 signed by coach Claude Julien and on the bottom right is a Rangers line-up card signed by coach Tom Renney. The Bruins and Rangers played a home and home weekend series.

The display is in beautiful condition and will be accompanied by a VB Card Show LOA and two photos of O’Ree signing the display.
