A Bobby Orr TwoFor.

Now that the hoopla over the Bruins winning the Stanley Cup has died down a bit, it’s time to get back to some vintage Bobby Orr items.

The two items I’m going to show you this week I won off Ebay recently. I would say that they both a hard to fine if not rare.

First up is something from his days with the Oshawa Generals.

This is a pocket schedule of the Generals home games for the 1965-66 season, which was Orr’s last in Junior Hockey. I don’t recall ever seeing another schedule from this particular year, but I’m sure they’re out there.

This schedule was made by the Dodsworth Printing and Lithography company as advertised on the back of it.

Next up is a hard to come by Orr collectible.

Orr Stamp2

This is the 1969-70 Bobby Orr stamp still attached to its original sheet along with the Minnesota North Stars center Ray Cullen.

These stamps were included in both Topps and O-Pee-Chee packs that year. You would tear them off and stick them on the back of that players card as seen here.

There were only a total of 22 pairs of stamps featuring 26 players in all. The single Orr stamp can be found on Ebay every now and then. The double stamp is much rarer, pricier and coveted by Orr collectors.

That’s all for this week. Check back in next Sunday when I’ll be featuring an Orr item that I have never seen before and I just bought today. Thanks again for reading and have a great week.

    The cartoon next to Orr on the stamp is goofy looking, I like it :D

    Huh, I have never seen the stamp/card combo before. Were the stamps randomly packed, so you have to try to match the stamp to the card?

  3. Gary says:

    Yes they were randomly packed Goog. So sometimes you would get the stamp but might not have the card, or vice-versa. And remember, only 26 players had stamps. Seeing as how there were only 132 cards in the set however, chances are you would get both at some point.

    wonder how many stamps were stuck to school books or bedroom walls?
    I didnt start collecting cards till 1970,so I never had a chance to see how they were packaged, had to be on the top and the slab of non-edible plastic gum on the bottom.

  5. Gary says:

    I bet a ton of them wound up someplace other than the card itself. I hope the gum and the stamps were seperated. I would think they would be. If anyone remembers please leave a comment.
