Orr in Acrylic Part II

Even though Bobby Orr has been retired for over 30 years now, there are still new Orr items that are being produced every year. Most of these are hockey cards, but occasionally something else, usually a limited edition item, will be made.

Back in September, I had a post about one such item. Take a look for yourselves www.bobbyorrcollector.com/?p=759.

That stick was sold by Signature Sports Collectibles and commemorates the 40th anniversary of “The Goal”. Before that however, they made a similar acrylic stick which celebrated Orr’s career by listing the various awards he won. I’ve been trying to get that stick for awhile, but it’s been sold out due to the limited number of them that were made (and I’m not sure of that number. My guess is anywhere from 100 to 250).

As luck would have it, Sportsworld in Saugus (www.sportsworld-usa.com) recently got a few in and I immediately bought one. If you like what you see in the following pictures I would call them asap.

I took snapshots of sections of the stick so that you can see it better.

So there you have the stick broken down in sections. As you can see, every major award Orr won in his career isĀ  listed and it’s autographed by the man himself. I really like how the stick looks and the fact that it sums up his amazing career.

Here’s a last shot of the full stick.

Hope you liked this look at a more recent Orr collectible. Thanks again for reading and see you back here again next week for some more great Bobby Orr items.

    Nice, I like the old style fonts. They give the stick a classic feel as opposed to something more modern and just slapped together to make a quick buck (I’m assuming it’s a fairly recent creation, since you said it commemorates a 40th anniversary).

  2. Gary says:

    Great call on the fonts Goog. The stick came out within the past 2 or 3 years I believe.

    How much would something like this retail for? Also, overtime have you seen the value of these types of collectibles climb?

  4. Gary says:

    This was a limited edition item that I believe originally sold for around $500. I’m not sure how many exist, but I was told only 50. I tend to think more were made, but not more than say 200. As with anything it’s all about supply and demand. However, I don’t see a significant price increase for something like this. It’s too new an item.

    Gary, I just picked up this stick from an ebay seller. I notice you have a hologram on the shaft. Did you send this to Great North for signature? In the same location on my stick there is a silver sticker that wraps around the stick, but no serial numbered hologram. I do have the smaller hologram that begins with Y towards the blade.

    I’m concerned I do not have two serial numbered holograms as you do.

    Hey John,
    I bought the stick signed and the hologram came with it. He signed a limited number of these sticks, so that might be the reason for the hologram on the signed ones and not on the regular ones.

  7. John says:

    That’s my concern!

    I have the same stick you do and it IS signed on the blade. Now I’m even more worried.
