Orr’s Rookie Jersey Fetches $191,200 At Heriatge Auction

Bobby Orr’s rookie jersey is going, going, gone – sold for US$191,200 to an unnamed buyer at an auction in Dallas on Friday. The sweater is one of only two known to exist from Orr’s 1966-67 season with the Boston Bruins. “If ever there was such a thing, then this jersey is indeed the Holy Grail of hockey collectibles,” said Chris Ivy of Heritage Sports Auctions. “It’s as much about the $191,200 final price as it is about Orr’s place as one of the most beloved NHL players in the history of the sport.” Read full story here at the Toronto Sun web site.
