Bobby Orr's rookie jersey sold for nearly $200,000 at auction.

What does a $191,200 hockey jersey look like? Peek to your left. That’s what a rare Bobby Orr rookie sweater fetched at an auction.

Back then, jerseys weren’t produced and stockpiled the way they are today, so getting your mitts on such a keepsake will cost. But think of the history.

Aesthetically, the Bruins have almost always been on point and the spoked-B that dominates this jersey is as classic as they come. Simple stripes on the shoulders and arms fill it out.
