In Person – Bobby Orr

Over the years I’ve been lucky to meet almost every member of the Bruins 1970 and 1972 Stanley Cup winning teams at various card shows in the area, sometimes on multiple occasions. Pretty much everything I’ve ever wanted signed I have. I still come up with things on occasion however, even if it’s just an 8×10 pic. Bobby Orr and Teddy Green are the only players I’ve never seen at a show.

In Orr’s case, him showing up at a regular show would probably cause mayhem. The line for an autograph would for on forever. He does sign however, but they are private signings where people can send their memorabilia in, but don’t get a chance to meet him in person.

There are cases however, where Orr had made appearances on behalf of specific companies. I have never gone to one of these signings, but I do have some items from them. Just by happenstance, they all happen to be pucks.

Not sure when this signing took place, but as you can see it was around the holidays.

Rectrix Aviation is a company that offers private jet charter flights.

Finally, Boston Cedar is a company out of Mansfield, Ma. that had Orr in to promote Latitudes decking and railing. Besides this puck, I also have been able to acquire a few other pieces from this signing that I wrote about previously here.

Since today is Father’s Day, I have one more thing to show you.

Orr Family

Here is an old magazine ad with the whole Orr family promoting Nabisco Brands. That’s his wife Peggy and sons Darren and Brent.

That’s all for this week. Hope all you Dad’s out there get a nice piece of Orr memorabilia to add to your collection. See you next week.

    The pucks are kind of neat, but a bit ho-hum (or maybe ho-ho-ho-hum in the case of the christmas puck), but I really like the ad. It’s corny but a nice slice of the time.

    Agree with this 100%.

  4. Gary says:

    The pucks are unspectacular, but the ad is pure late 70’s early 80’s.

  5. scifinds says:

    The ad is awesome, I hope the rest of the family got paid as well

    it’s doubtful anyone got paid but Dirt Bag Eagleson. Too bad Eagleson wasnt O.J.’s agent.
