I have admired this set for several years. I don't know if PSA has a right proper holder for a 6 X 8 photo (THEIR T-3 HOLDER IS JUST A BIT TOO SMALL; PITY), but the Bobby Orr has enough eye appeal to classify as one of his very best items, taken at the height of his career. As the set celebrates the 1969-70 Stanley Cup Champions, and would have been distributed during the 1970-71 season, its significance is high.

Perhaps many unsold stock packets of them survived, but the sheer attractiveness of the photos is off the charts, and would stand out in any Bobby Orr display, I feel. Many of the shots of his teammates are equally good.

Thanks for sharing. ---Brian Powell

That pic really brings home that at the height of his prowess, Orr was really still practically a kid.

Thanks for the comments guys! Another cool thing about the photo is the texture. It feels a little bit like very fine sand paper or pebbly if you know what I mean.

You're right, JB. The photos have a textured feel to them. Also, the stock is thin, but not opaque under the right conditions. The right condition would be a hefty PSA holder. That's why I dearly wish it would shoehorn into their T-3 holder. Perhaps their holder used for the 1967 Coca-Cola premiums would work, but memory escapes me what its dimensions are. The Bruins team issue photos might require the Mylar bag.

My strong feeling for the hefty PSA holder is that it creates massive protection, and the illusion it's a thicker card. The same holds true for the 1914-15 Cracker Jack baseball, which are extremely thin. Ditto the 1954 Wilson Franks.

Again, thanks for sharing, JB!

As an aside, I really admire the photo of Derek Sanderson, "the center of attention", whose contribution to the Big Bad Bruins was immense. The show was on when he and Ed Westfall took the ice to kill one of the many penalties their teammates incurred.

I'm a big fan of pre-rookie issues of hall of famers. Here's one I just picked up that I've never seen before, a 1965-66 Toronto Marlborough Athletic Club Team Issued Photo of Brad Park.
