1960-61 Photograph of the Boston Bruins in uniform and posing on the ice. The most important player of the era, Willie O'Ree, is pictured at the back row third from the right as he was the first black player in the history of the NHL. Images of O'Ree are extremely rare with this being the only example we have ever handled! The image is clear and bold. O'Ree is an extremely undervalued pioneer in the sports world with images of him being virtually impossible to find.
