Bobby Orr Artwork

After a one week hiatus I’m back. Not sure what my schedule for posts will be from here on out. I’ll guarantee however that at the minimum I will have a post at least every two weeks.

This weeks item is something I picked up recently and is among my favorite type of Bobby Orr collectibles: Original artwork prints.

Orr poster

This is a print by well known sports cartoonist Bob Coyne. I wrote about him in one of my previous posts.

I would venture that this was done for one of the local papers during the 1970-71 season because it lists his statistics and awards won from the previous year.

Coyne really did a great job of capturing Orr in motion. The added facts about his career is just icing on cake.

I really do love artwork like this and plan on framing it and hanging it in my Bobby Orr room.

I really don’t know how many of these drawings exist. This is the first I’ve ever seen of this particular one.If you ever happen to see another one, I’d say grab it because I don’t think there are too many out there.

Thanks for checking in this week. Next week is comic-con (my other collecting passion) so I’ll see you again in two weeks.

    I always enjoy seeing Coyne’s work on the blog, it’s always fun to see the work of a skilled cartoonist/artist.

    I have many of his original layouts for the Boston Newspapers. Are they worth anything?

    Hi Jack. They are definitely worth something depending on what you have. If you have any pics I’d love to see them.
