Bobby Orr is a sports icon that has touched the hearts of so many people. Not just for his incredible talent on the ice, but for his charitable work as well. I have always been a big fan of #4 – Bobby Orr. (And that’s “number 4” not “hashtag 4!”)
I was a big Boston Bruins fan as a kid. I loved watching Bobby Orr. The way that he skated from the rink’s end to end and was able to seemingly score whenever he wanted to always amazed me. He continues to be – even all these years after he retired – one of my (and many people’s) all-time favorites of the small class of NHL greats, no matter who your team was.
When I first saw the images of Bobby Orr that we have in our sports images collection at Vintage Sports Images, I was blown away – and taken back to those nights of watching this memorable athlete in the NHL. While I know that I can’t take every one of our spectacular images home with me, I knew I had to have an image of Orr.
I have found the perfect spot in my home office for the Orr shot. We printed this shot onto a 24” x 18” and 2” thick canvas and it looks incredible. It has a painterly/art look that reminds me of one of my favorite sports painters, Ken Danby, who was from near my hometown of Sault Ste. Marie, ON.
This print of Bobby Orr can be custom ordered on canvas or on archival paper with white matte and a classic simple black frame. This is a great shot and a perfect gift for a loved one – or for yourself (like I did!).
And yes, even though I own the business, I am an extremely happy customer of Vintage Sports Images!
