Bobby Orr in Pictures and Posters

I got a message on Friday from a frequent Orr memorabilia supplier of mine, Sportsworld in Saugus, Mass. saying that a unique Orr item recently came into the store. Of course when I read that I knew that I had to go check it out.

When I saw it I realized that it looked very familiar.


Here we have an original 5×7 photo of Orr coming out behind the net against the New York Rangers. The reason why it looks so familiar is this:


This is a poster of the same photo. It was put out by T.J.B. Enterprises of Wakefield, Ma. in 1971. So was this the actual photo that the poster was taken from? Quite possibly. Pretty cool nevertheless.

There were three other non Orr Bruin photos included.


I know for sure that the photo on the right was also made into a poster. I can’t remember if the other ones were or not. All in all I’m pretty happy to have these four original photos, especially the Orr one.

See you again next weekend with more of Orr.

    Gary Looks to be the same photographer as the Bruins Calendar that was published at the same time as those photos.

    Hi Gary, I have a collection of Old hockey magazines including many with Bobby Orr on the cover and a poster #14 “Farewell To Bobby Orr”. I am willing to sell them all if you would be interested in any. Just shoot me an email and I can send you pictures. Thanks Ryan

    Two questions pls…………. Orr is featured on many Hockey Times magazines. Do you know how many of these were issued. I think I am missing two. The other question is re the Bobby Orr Fan Club newsletters begun in 1973. Do you know how many of those were issued? Thanks for you time

  9. Gary says:

    Hi Paul. Although I own many of both the magazine and newsletter, I’m not sure how many issues came out. I’m curious myself. A few of my fellow Orr collectors might have an idea, so I’ll ask them and get back to you if they know.

    Hello, I recently acquired an original Mark Gray painting of Bobby Orr. I’m a hockey fan, but thought people on this page would enjoy it.
