Bobby Orr collectibles are never ending. At least that’s what it seems like. Just when I thought I had seen it all something comes along that I had no idea was out there.
This happened to me a couple of weeks ago regarding Bobby Orr newspaper/magazine photos.
Last year I did a post about these. At the time I thought that I had every cover that he appeared on. Apparently I was wrong.
Here is a weekend sports insert from the Montreal-Matin newspaper. I have the other three covers he was on but had never seen this one before. This is from March 31, 1973. Behind Orr are Peter Mahovlich and Ed Johnston.
Being the completist that I am, I also picked this up.
This one is from April 1, 1972. Even though Orr isn’t the main focus, there’s still enough of him in there to make me want this.
Here is another piece that I wasn’t aware of.
This is La Presse Montreal Forum Magazine from November 1, 1968. Once again Orr is not the featured player, but there he is on the right hand side.
Once again the entire paper is in French, which makes me wish that I took that instead of Spanish in high school.
While these are not the most expensive or unique Orr items in my collection, I’m still happy to have them and put them on display.
Thanks for checking in this week. I’ll be back next Sunday with more Bobby Orr items.
