1972 O-Pee-Chee Bobby Orr #58 — PSA 10 — Pop 1 of 2
Robert Gordon “Bobby” Orr (March 20, 1948-) is widely considered among the top three greatest hockey players in the history of the NHL, and most certainly the greatest defenseman the league has ever seen. Though his father urged Bobby to focus on offense primarily as a forward, his hockey coach as a boy saw his abilities and turned him into a defenseman who utilized his offensive skills as well. The small defenseman soon grew into an imposing rearguard, playing with Boston’s affiliate the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey Association-Juniors. Orr had been in the Bruins’ sights since he was 14. Bobby Orr’s two-way style of play made him a threat at both ends of the ice, scoring clutch goals and sniping from the point as well as delivering thunderous checks, blocking shots, moving opposing players out of scoring range and scrapping in fights when necessary. His tough, hard-nosed ability combined with his scoring touch earned him the 1967 Calder Trophy honoring the NHL’s top rookie. An obvious quick learner, and would-be revolutionary, Orr won his first of a record eight consecutive (1968-1975) Norris Trophies in his second year. His third season in the NHL, Bobby led the league in plus/minus with a +65. Orr’s plus/minus goal differentials over his career are some of the most spectacular numbers in the history of the game as he was a record-setting +124 in 1970-71, meaning that when an even-strength goal is scored, players on the ice earn a plus one, and conversely when there is a goal against.
Bobby revolutionized the game as a two-way player, leading the way for players like Hall of Famers Ray Bourque, Paul Coffey, Al MacInnis and Brian Leetch as well as Chris Chelios and Nicklas Lidstrom to emerge as team and league leaders. From 1969-1975, Bobby led the league in assists five times, twice in points and six times in plus/minus. Amazingly, his career spanned but twelve seasons with the Bruins (1966-1976) and the Chicago Blackhawks (1976-1977). He seemed to collect trophies each year of his career also winning the 1977 and 1975 Art Ross Trophies (top point scorer), the 1970-1972 Hart Trophies (NHL’s Most Valuable Player) and the Ted Lindsay Award (outstanding player as selected by the NHLPA) to go along with his Norris Trophy collection. He led the Bruins to the Holy Grail twice as they captured the 1970 and 1972 Stanley Cups and he was named the Conn Smythe Trophy (playoffs MVP) winner for each year’s playoffs. Orr earned eight consecutive NHL All-Star First Team selections (1967-1975) and was named to seven NHL All-Star Games. Bobby Orr finished his career with 270 career goals and 645 assists for 915 points in 657 games over 12 seasons. In 2007, The Hockey News named Bobby the greatest defenseman of all-time. And in 2010, he again topped their list as the second greatest player in NHL history behind only Wayne Gretzky. Sold for $1,573.
