Graded EX-MT+ 6.5 by PSA (submitted by REA). Exceptionally crisp high-grade rookie card of Hall of Famer Bobby Orr from the classic 1966-1967 Topps set. From the first time that Bobby Orr played professional hockey it was quite obvious that his influence would change the game forever. One of the all-time great defensemen, Orr showed that players at his position could become an offensive force as well. He played just nine full seasons but his legend was so great that he was elected into Hockey's Hall of Fame in the same year he retired, 1979. This card is especially difficult to find in high grade because of the brown flush-to-the-border design of the 1966-1967 Topps Hockey set. This example has four strong corners showing light traces of wear at the tips under close inspection, bright colors, a flawless image, and virtually no wear to the condition-sensitive brown borders. Near-perfect centering, with a perfectly clean reverse. This is a very sharp, crisp, high-grade example of this important rookie card, which is one of the key cards in the extremely condition-sensitive 1966-1967 Topps set. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+.
