Stanley Cup Time with Bobby Orr

There’s nothing in all of sports that compares to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The intensity of each game is off the charts. This year should be a great final as the Bruins take on the Black Hawks. I’m lucky enough to have tickets to game 3 in Boston.

Bobby Orr played in three Stanley Cup Finals, winning two of them and getting to hoist the cup, which is the ultimate trophy to win.

The Stanley Cup is this weeks Orr item that I’m going to show you. Two weeks ago I posted that I had Orr sign a few items for me. Here is the one that I wanted signed the most.


Here is a two foot replica of the cup. While not a Bobby Orr item per se, I got his signature on the top band. You can see it a little better in this next pic.


My goal is to have as many members of the 1970 and 1972 cup winning teams sign it. So far I have fourteen signatures. I have most of the main guys except for Phil Esposito and Ed Westfall. If I can get those two guys then I’d be happy.

Of course I considered Orr’s signature to be the most important. He’s the only one that is going to sign that top rung.

The only other thing I would want is a picture of me and Bobby with the cup. Unfortunately, since it was a private signing I couldn’t do that. In most other cases when I bring the cup to a show to get signed I usually take a photo with the player. Here are two that I took with John Bucyk and Milt Schmidt.



Here’s a pic of Orr with the real Stanley Cup.

That’s all for this week. Looking forward to this year’s version of the Bruins hoisting the cup sometime next week. Until next Sunday, Go Bruins!

    I have a bobby orr watch from the 70’s and I was wondering if you knew the value of it. Thanks

  5. Gary says:

    Hi Chris. Depending on condition, they usually sell for between $100 – $200. If it was still in it’s original box the double that.

    Have a piece of the net that the OT goal was scored into. Grandfather was head of the bull gang and cut a piece of the netting off for me. Impossible to verify but I have all of the proof I need. Bobby was and is the best !!

  7. Gary says:

    Great story John! You have an awesome piece of history there.

  8. Grant says:

    I own a large piece puzzle of Bobby Orr that has been packed away for 37 years. I am looking to sell it and this seems to be the forum for possibly doing this?

  9. Gary says:

    Hi Grant. My sight is more for just posting and talking about the Orr collectables that I own. Your best bet is Ebay. Also, if the puzzle you’re talking about is the 4 ft by 2 ft version, then that’s a rare and desirable piece to own.

  10. Grant says:

    Ok, thanks Gary. And yes, it is the 4ft by 2 ft version.

  11. Gary says:

    Just to let you know, one sold recently on Ebay that was complete in the box for $695. It’s a very tough puzzle to find.

    If I remember correctly, Lowney had a deal on, if you saved any ten “Lowney” wrappers, you could mail in the ten wrappers to receive a free the Bobby Orr poster. I still have mine (folded as it came in the envelope) in my Orr box, I collected as a kid.
