Collectors in western Canada are making plans for this weekend’s Summit Show in Edmonton. The event debuted last year and is returning, albeit in a new location– Millennium Place. It’s by far the largest show held in that neck of the woods and several autograph guests will attend, but the star attraction this year might be a jersey.
This one was worn during the rookie season of Hall of Famer Bobby Orr. Newer Orr jerseys have sold for six figures, but the sky could be the limit for the value of this one. It’s amazing, actually, that it still exists.
And it’s not just being trotted out with a flimsy excuse for provenance.
This one has apparently been under the microscope of some dedicated hockey historians for three years.
The Edmonton Sun has more on the show–and the jersey.
