Orr Jersey Could Be Windfall For Canadian Truck Driver

John Rows had the good fortune of being the nephew of a Boston Bruins’ scout in the late 1960s.  Garry Young was a former NHL coach who traveled to Boston after Bobby Orr’s rookie year and brought home a couple of gifts for kids in the family, jerseys worn by two of the team’s stars, including the teenager Orr, already a sensation.  Game-worn jerseys were just thought of as hand-me-downs back then. Decades later, the jersey is one of the finest and most important post-War hockey artifacts in existence.  Not long after he brought it home, someone offered $1,000 for it–big money back in the day.  Luckily, he kept it.  It goes on the block this month at Heritage Auctions and could sell for six figures or more.
