Pretty easy to guess what I’m going to show you this week. These two items come from the same person that I bought last weeks mug from. They’re also two items that I’ve wanted and been looking for for a long time.
Orr’s been a spokesman for many products over the years. He’s hawked hockey equipment, cookies and shaving products just to name a few. By far, two of the best pieces of advertising memorabilia that feature him are the following two items.
Here we have the first of two mirrors featuring Orr in street clothes hawking Canadian LTD whiskey. That’s a photo of Orr that is taped to the back of the mirror.
This second mirror is my favorite of the two.
“Two distinguished Canadians”. So true. Look at the jacket and turtleneck. The man oozes class. It’s a little tough to see, but he’s also wearing his 1970 Stanley Cup Champion ring.
Any hockey fan who has a bar in their “man cave” really needs to have these hanging up behind it. Just perfect.
I know other Orr collectors who have these, but I’ve hardly ever seen then offered on Ebay or at shows. I think I remember the first one selling on Ebay a few years back for over $200. Needless to say, I jumped at the chance to grab these.
I do have one question to put to my readers: Have you tried the whiskey and is it any good?
Hope you enjoyed this weeks Orr items. As always, more will be coming your way next weekend. See you then.
