Orr compiled the best offensive numbers of his career that season, scoring a career-high 139 points, including 102 assists to become the first player ever to top 100 assists. Orr also had a staggering plus/minus of +124, the highest in history.

The jersey was photomatched and authenticated by Resolution Photomatching to two images believed to be taken in 1971.
