Early 1970's Bobby Orr Game Worn Skates. The most unmistakable footwear in the history of the NHL. One of the most beloved sports figures in a town that also gave birth to the legends of Ted Williams and Larry Bird, Orr is remembered perfectly in the leather and steel of these "CCM Tackaberry Prolite" skates, each bearing his magical number "4" in its proper style and degree of wear. Each skate shows the stresses and strains of many icy miles, clearly having served their master for the entirety of a season, and perhaps even more. Thrillingly, these date from the era of Orr's greatest moment, the Superman dive captured for eternity in the photo snapped an instant he netted the sudden death 1970 Stanley Cup-winning goal. Each is imprinted with the proper size "7 1/2" on the underside, and show the remnants of the sealing treatment used to keep Orr's feet dry. The left skate is missing the white plastic protective knob, placed in that position to avoid cutting oneself in high-kicking sprints. Originally sourced from the collection of a noted Orr expert, with LOA to verify. LOA from MEARS.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000.
