During his playing days (and even in retirement) Bobby Orr helped promote many products and companies. Not surprising since he’s the greatest hockey player in the world.
What I have to show you this week is two items of Orr promoting Lowney’s Chocolates.
This first item is a poster of Bobby for Lowney’s Save and Score promotion. This was a program that benefited the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association. Not sure if this poster was a giveaway or if you could get it by saving wrappers. Perhaps one of my readers in Canada who is familiar with the program can shed some more light on it.
As you can see here, the drawing of Orr is the same as the poster, but this is an advertising piece used in stores. It urges consumers to buy more Lowney’s chocolates and save the wrappers.
The advertising piece is a lot more interesting than the regular poster. It’s also mounted on foam board which makes it easier to display.
See you again next weekend with more Bobby Orr.
