As one hockey expert observed, "Bobby Orr was a star when they played the national anthem before his first game." And almost from the beginning, Sports Illustrated was there to document the fleet skating and stealthy scoring of this NHL star. And they didn't stop with his retirement three decades ago. This 200+-page signature Sports Illustrated Collection covers his entire playing career, including his comebacks; his post-retirement legal battles; and his extraordinary good works in the years since. A perfect tribute to the Hall of Famer of whom one opponent admitted, "We hated to check him. We respect him so much that we don't want to do anything to damage those knees."
