Typed Letter signed: "Bobby Orr", 1p, 7¼x10½.On personal letterhead with Boston Bruins. No place, no date. To "Dear C. S." In full: "Received your letter and just wanted to thank you for taking time to write to me. It was great to year from you. I am looking forward to another great season with the Boston Bruins. It's loyal fans like you that keep the team's spirits high. Your support is really appreciated. Best wishes to you and keep cheering for me and the Boston Bruins." Boston Bruins' Hall of Famer Bobby Orr won the Norris Trophy for Outstanding Defenseman eight times (1968-1975) and led the NHL in scoring twice and in assists five times. Orr, arguably the greatest defenseman to ever play the sport, changed the way hockey is played with his revolutionary approach to the position as an offensive threat. Orr led the "Big Bad Bruins" to two Stanley Cup championships (1970, 1972). The 6'1", 200-pound Bruin struck fear into the hearts of opposing players and coaches with his superior vision and uncanny knack for finding the puck in wide open ice. In the 1966-67 season, Bobby Orr scored 13 goals and 41 total points, which earned him the Calder Trophy as the NHL's outstanding rookie. Beginning with the 1969-70 season, Orr posted point totals of 120, 139, 117, 101, 122, and 135 for the next six seasons. After Orr's tenure with the Bruins ended, he was signed by the Chicago Blackhawks. Unfortunately, after playing only 26 games in his final three seasons due to severe knee injuries, Orr retired from the sport, leaving a void that has not been filled since. Creased. Mounting remnant at upper left edge. Horizontal folds touch top of "D", "C" and "S" of inscription and "y" in signature. Vertical folds touch "S" in inscription, "y O" in signature.
