    Description

    1966 Topps USA Test Bobby Orr Rookie #35 PSA NM 7. While any trading card that declares the arrival of this pantheon figure upon the professional ice carries enormous collecting intrigue, the offered rarity sets itself apart from and above its contemporaries, much like its subject. This is the profoundly scarce "Test Issue" of the card, a designation verifiable by the absence of any French language text. The final product that was distributed in wax packs was issued in bilingual format in order to satisfy the hockey market's large Quebecois clientele.

    To provide some context of just how rare this English-only variant is, we report that just short of 1,000 examples of the standard format appear in the PSA population, while the Test version recently crested 100. The NM 7 status of this particular example places it high in the pecking order of that thin population, surpassed only fourteen times.

    I thought that Peter Calderon was very pleasant and had a very professional attitude.
