More of Bobby Orr and The Stanley Cup

As I said last week, there’s nothing quite like the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Bruins and Blackhawks are currently tied 1 – 1 in the finals and both games have been overtime classics. With that in mind I thought it would a good idea to continue with the Stanley Cup theme this week seeing as how I’ve acquired a few items in the past few months that deal directly with the Bruins winning the cup.

First up is something you don’t see too often anymore.

Here are three 8 mm home movie highlight films of the 1970, 1971 and 1972 Stanley Cup Playoffs. All are still sealed in their original packaging and are official films of the NHL. Orr is prominently featured on all three covers. It’s interesting to note that each one depicts the Bruins playing against the New York Rangers. Not sure if this was done on purpose or just a coincidence.

Speaking of the Rangers, this is the program for game 5 of the finals which was on May 9, 1972. The Bruins could have clinched the Cup if they won this game, but they lost to the Rangers 3-2. I’ve always loved this cover because it feature the two greatest Bruins of that era, Bobby and Phil Esposito, with a great photo of the Stanley Cup between them.

Not to worry however because there’s this.

Here is the program and ticket stub from game 6 in Madison Square Garden. The Bruins won the Cup with a 3 – 0 victory.

Here is the line-up page.

Finally I have this really tough to find item.

This is a ticket stub from “The Goal” game, May 10, 1970. You see the red 7 on the ticket. That indicates that it’s for the seventh Bruins home game of the playoffs. That year they played three games at home in the first round, two in the second and two in the finals. You don’t see this ticket stub for sale too often and is definitely a nice piece of both Bruins and Bobby Orr history.

That’s all for this week. Hope you are enjoying watching the Bruins – Blackhawks series. Go Bruins!!

    Wow, that’s really neat. I didn’t know you had ticket stubs from those big games. I’m surprised you don’t have them out on display, or do you and I just never noticed them?

    I don’t have them out Goog, but now that I’m re-designing the sports room I will find a place for them.
