1966-67 Topps USA Test #35 Bobby Orr Rookie SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5 ROOKIE ORR!!!… Bobby Orr revolutionized Hockey via the way he played the defensemen position, and is arguably the greatest hockey player who ever lived at peak value. His accomplishments are countless, including 3 consecutive league MVP Hart Trophies, 2 playoff MVP Conn Smythe Trophies, a record 8 straight best defensemen Norris Trophies and two league scoring leader Art Ross Trophies. Orr played as a defenseman and due to serious knee injuries played only nine full seasons. Those who played against him all attest to his blistering slap shot and skating speed with most in agreement that no hockey player ever skated as fast as this iconic Boston Bruin legend. Orr's cards are highly sought after by serious hockey enthusiasts, with none more valuable than his 1966-67 Topps rookie card, presented here in a stunning SGC 96 MINT holder. The offered example exhibits absolutely no chipping or wear on its colored, full-bleed edges, with strong corners. Bright, clear printing distinguishes both front and back surfaces. The card is well deserving of its 96 MINT grade. One of three with a single card grading higher.
