    Description

    1966 Topps Bobby Orr #35 PSA NM 7. The 1966 Topps Bobby Orr rookie card is quite possibly the most coveted hockey card in the entire universe of hockey cards. The Boston Bruins organization caught wind of his prodigious skill at the tender age of fourteen. An exceptional talent, Orr was ready for the big stage of the NHL by the time he was eighteen years old graced with superb speed, phenomenal stickhandling and out-of-this-world defensive prowess. Few who had seen him play would say that the Bruins were out of line when they made the teen the highest-paid player in NHL history for his rookie campaign. To say that he was good in his debut professional campaign would be a glaring understatement. The Calder Trophy (top rookie), a spot on the Second All-Star Team and second in scoring by defenseman are all rookie-year honors. Orr revitalized Beantown's zest for hockey much in the same way that Eddie Shore had sparked it generations before. When Orr dominated a game there was very little anyone could do about it.

    Graded PSA NM 7. Starting with the surfaces which are free of blemishes or mishaps. The layer of gloss is shiny and consistent. Handling has been kept to a bare minimum. Corners show hints of wear at the outer tips. Centering rests a bit high and to the left. Edges show not a single chip or scuff. Rare for a set where the wood design makes tiny imperfections look like huge imperfections. A very strong example that would fit nicely into any high-end collection.
