Photo measures 16" x 20" in size and features one of the most iconic moments in all of sports. The photo is hand-signed in blue felt tip pen by Bobby Orr (HOF).

Orr went on to lead the Bruins in a march through the 1970 playoffs that culminated on May 10, 1970, when he scored one of the most famous goals in hockey history and one that gave Boston its first Stanley Cup since 1941. The goal came off a give-and-go pass with teammate Derek Sanderson at the 40-second mark of the first overtime period in the fourth game, helping to complete a sweep of the St. Louis Blues. According to Orr:

"If it had gone by me, it's a two-on-one. So I got a little lucky there, but Derek gave me a great pass and when I got the pass I was moving across. As I skated across, Glenn had to move across the crease and had to open his pads a little. I was really trying to get the puck on net, and I did. As I went across, Glenn's legs opened. I looked back, and I saw it go in, so I jumped."

The offered photograph by Ray Lussier of a horizontal Orr flying through the air, his arms raised in victory has become one of the most famous and recognized hockey images of all time.
