Even more Foreign Orr

While it would only makes sense that a majority of Bobby Orr memorabilia available would come from either the United States or Canada, there is actually a smattering of items that were produced overseas.

This week I have a pretty cool item to show you that I picked up in an auction last month. It doesn’t focus strictly on Orr, but that really doesn’t matter to me in regards to this piece.

Here we have a program from a two game series in 1972 between Team Canada and a  Swedish all star team. These games took place during a break in the famous Canada-Russia Summit series that year.

Now Orr didn’t play that series because he was still recovering from a knee operation, but he is still listed on the roster and included in the biographies of the players.

The entire program is in Swedish so I have no idea what anything says.

Some collectors would consider this more of a Team Canada item than an Orr piece. I like the crossover aspect of it because the 1972 Summit Series is one of the greatest ever played and there are other items out there that show Orr as a member of the team. Check out the last item from this post.

I can’t tell you how many of these programs are out there, but this is the first one that I’ve ever seen and I was determined to win this on auction night.

That’s all for this week. Be sure to check out next weeks post. Guest poster Danny is back and he is going to feature some Orr items that I have said I would never ever right about. This will be a one time only thing so don’t miss it.

    You should grow your hair to look like Orr

    I’d settle for just growing my hair.

    I don’t have too much to say other than I enjoyed your rhyming post title :)
