The 1975-76 season marked the final time that the Boston Garden would
have the great Bobby Orr rushing from end-to-end. Although his knees
were scarred and beaten, he managed to play in 10 games that final
season in Beantown, recording five goals and 13 assists for 18
points. This home, white durene jersey is from that final and
memorable season of Bobby Orr’s career with the Bruins. This very
well could be the last jersey that Orr donned in the fabled Boston
Garden. Orr was likely issued two home, white jerseys and this is
definitely one of them. Accompanied by a photo showing Orr wearing
this style, the jersey sports the highly sought after Massachusetts
Bicentennial patches on both shoulders. This Wilson durene jersey
sports a slightly frayed Wilson size 46 tag in the collar. The spoked
Bruins crest shows mild puckering with a few light marks. Orr’s
famous #4 graces the back and both sleeves in smooth tackle twill
with the traditional black on gold lettering with the zigzag
stitching to create the middle color in the classic Bruins lettering.
Inside you will find light balling and pilling along with a two-
pieced clip style fight strap with a touch of rust near the strap. On
the left shoulder is a small stain and a few stick marks. One team
repair reinforces the V-neck just below the black neck stripe in the
white. Orr was notorious for pulling on the neck of his jerseys to
create more room, usually ripping them. Above Orr’s #4 on the back
are two spots of glue where a temporary nameplate had been affixed
for TV games. These nameplates were used only for televised games and
were then removed for the non-televised games. Comes with photo of
Orr wearing a jersey just like this style! One of the best hockey
jerseys you'll ever come across.
