Blowing Air with Bobby Orr

Sunday, January 26th, 2014

It’s been awhile, but I’m back this week with a new post. Why now? Well, I got something recently that I thought was pretty cool and I wanted to show it to you all.

Everyone knows or has seen the various versions of Bobby Orr table hockey games that are out there. Refresh your memory by checking out this past post.

The item I have for you this week is much rarer. I’ve only ever seen it one other time and that is because a fellow Orr collector has it and sent me pictures a long time ago.

Without further adieu here it is.

Bobby Orr Glide Hockey. The box is in tough shape, but I don’t care because the main part featuring Bobby still looks pretty good.

Here’s what the game actually looks like.

Nothing fancy here. As the box says, it features a super fast Munite playing surface. I have no idea about that, as I have no intention of playing it, just displaying it.

As I said above. this is only the second one that I have ever seen. I can’t imagine that this was very popular as I’m sure most kids preferred the more traditional table hockey game.

There you have it. I’ve picked up some other unique Orr pieces during my sabbatical and will be featuring them as time goes on. Thanks to everyone who still continues to check my site. There will be more posts coming.
