    Very Common magazine,
    He wore number 19 and 27 in training camp and NHL exhibition games before he donned the number 4 in his first official NHL game. Also what's funny is he had number 37 gloves for both 19 & 27 Jerseys. Most likely left overs from a player that left the team

      This just goes to show you how different things were back then. We're talking about Bobby Orr, Bruins' rookie sensation and the greatest player to enter the league in the 1960s, being given left-over equipment. How ridiculous is that?

        Looks like he also wore number 30

          Yeah, got one of these!
          The "story" I heard was the photog showed up at a Bruins workout to shoot some pics. A lot of guys -- Orr included apparently? -- were wearing single colour (yellow, black, white?) practice jersies. But the goalies weren't.
          So when they wanted a pic of Bobby in a "Bruins" jersey he switched with Bernie Parent (#30).. hence the hint of 3-0 on the sleeve. :-)
