While Wayne Gretzky is the greatest hockey player of all time, few players have as much reverence among fans, especially in the New England area, as Bobby Orr. Number 4 played 12 seasons in the NHL and was part of some of the sport’s greatest moments. Below, we’ll look at the most valuable Topps hockey cards that featured the ultimate defenseman, Bobby Orr.

1967 Topps Hockey #92 Bobby Orr

Another gem of an Orr hockey card comes from Number 4’s sophomore season, the Topps Hockey #92. This card is from Orr’s younger days. It features a unique and attractive design of Orr in his Bruins uniform, posed in front of a red background with a drawing of a hockey arena audience behind him. A mint copy of this card fetched nearly $20,000, but less-than-mint ones are available for around $1,000.

1966 Topps #35 Bobby Orr Rookie Card

We all know that rookie cards are the gold standard, so it’s no surprise that our list of the most valuable Topps Bobby Orr hockey cards is headlined by his debut season cards.

1966 Topps USA Test #35 Bobby Orr Rookie Card

Some fans may not realize there are two types of Topps Bobby Orr rookie cards: the one mentioned above and this narrowly distributed set. Topps released this set as a test, so it’s practically identical to the eventually released Orr rookie card, besides slight variations. Unlike the other rookie card, this one is written only in English and features a lighter wood border. Due to its rarity and uniqueness, the Topps USA Test Orr rookie card has excellent investment potential.
