Default 1965 Bobby Orr

One for the Orr collectors. One of the rarest of all Orr items in high grade. A photo and not card from his Oshawa Generals days. Only 2 total in population and I'm very happy to own both. Enjoy.

Default Awesome!

Not an ORR or Hockey collector, but can truly appreciate its rarity. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice, Tomi!!

I'm an Oshawa boy, born and raised, and I don't ever recall seeing that card before.

One of my biggest disappointments and one of my Father's biggest regrets was not getting Bobby Orr to sign something when he use to see/watch him play road hockey out in front of our house back in the mid 60's.

I collect a bit of Bobby Orr stuff but like most adults nowadays, I wish I had have kept my childhood card collection.

Default 1965 Orr

There are now 3 Crown Life Oshawa Generals Bobby Orr cards slabbed by PSA. I sold the PSA 5, and recently got this one slabbed. It has a vintage Orr signature from the 1965-66 season. I plan on keeping this one.

FYI, I know of at least 5 or 6 more of these Crown Life Orr cards that are not currently in PSA holders. Another one (trimmed) just sold in Classic Auctions last week. Still very rare.

Even more rare is this Bobby Orr from the same season. This was inserted into Memorial Cup programs. There are at least 6 known Oshawa Generals players and at least 2 known Edmonton Oil Kings players that were inserted. There are 3 of the Orr's known to exist. One of them is on ebay, and I own the other 2.

Thanks Anish but I'm good with the two I have. Since it's an Orr thread lets get the rare stuff out there for all to see. This is one of my favorites from my Orr collection and you can see (without images) the full #1 set on the PSA set registry in the 1971 Bazooka Panel set. There are only 3 Orr's graded by PSA and only a total of 30 panels from the entire 12 panel set. Enjoy.
