It’s been a couple of weeks (very busy couple of weeks), but I’m back with something that I’ve had for awhile and am not sure why I waited so long to talk about it.
This item that I’m about to show you isn’t a Bobby Orr item per se. As the title of this post says, it’s more generic Bobby Orr. What I mean by that is there were items produced during Orr’s playing days that showed a generic Bruins player on it, but everyone knows it was meant to be Orr.
Here is what I’m talking about.
This is a Bruins weave rug from the late 60’s early 70’s. You have both sides of a generic Bruins player. No way. You can’t tell me that’s not supposed to be Bobby Orr.
Want a little proof? Check out this poster from the same time period.
Remarkable similarities. It’s basically the same image minus the number 4 on his gloves and sleeves.
When I bought the rug years ago, I did it more because I liked the design of it, not because I thought it was Bobby Orr on it. And truthfully, it wouldn’t be listed as an Orr item, but I think it is.
Thanks for staying with me these past few weeks. As I’ve said previously I’m cutting back on my posts. Keep checking in though as I plan to continue posting at least a few time a month and maybe more depending on what items I have.
