Bobby Hull (All-Star) - 1967 Topps

Robert Marvin “Bobby” Hull (January 3, 1939-) left his mark on not only the NHL, but the game of hockey as one of the first players to curve his stick, improving the effectiveness of the wrist shot and making his already powerful slapshot a much more lethal weapon. Hull grew up on a farm in Ontario where he developed a powerful physique and incredible strength, both in his upper body and legs. “The Golden Jet”, named for his speed, skill and cloned hair, burst into the NHL scoring 47 points in his first season, finishing second in Calder Trophy voting behind fellow Hall of Famer Frank Mahovlich. His numbers continued to improve each season, as he became one of the league’s elite snipers leading the NHL seven times in goals from 1959-1969. Bobby Hull’s slapshot is said to have been timed at 120 mph., approximately 15 mph. over the current “Hardest Shot” as measured in the annual NHL Skills Competition. In 1960-61, Hull and Mikita led Chicago to the Stanley Cup Championship, their first in 23 years. He would appear in three more Stanley Cup Finals until he left the Hawks to join the Winnipeg Jets of the WHA. In 1966, Bobby became the first player in NHL history to score more than 50 goals in a season, and in 1969 posted a career-high 58 goals.

Early in his career, he played alongside fellow Hall of Famers Stan Mikita, Pierre Pilote, Al Arbour, Ted Lindsay and Phil Esposito. He played 15 seasons in the NHL with the Black Hawks (1957-1972), Hartford Whalers (1980) and the Winnipeg Jets (1972-1980) of the World Hockey Association and NHL. The Jets made Bobby the richest man in hockey as they signed him to the first ever $1,000,000 contract. He set a professional hockey record with 77 goals in 1974-75, surpassing Phil Esposito’s total from 1970-71. Hull led the Jets to WHA Championship series winning the Avco Cup in 1976, 1978 and 1979. In 23 years, he won the Art Ross Trophy three times (top points scorer) and the 1965 Lady Byng Memorial Trophy (sportsmanlike conduct). He won the 1965 and 1966 Hart Trophies as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player and was named the Gary L. Davidson Award/Gordie Howe Trophy winner in 1973 and 1975 honoring the WHA’s MVP. He played in 12 NHL All-Star Games and was named to 13 NHL All-Star First Teams. Bobby Hull finished his career with 610 NHL goals and 560 assists for 1,170 points in 1,063 games. He added 62 NHL playoff goals and 67 assists and one Stanley Cup in 119 games. He also scored 303 WHA goals and 335 assists in 411 career WHA games. He also added 43 goals and 37 assists and three WHA titles in 60 WHA playoff games. Bobby Hull was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1983. In 1998, The Hockey News named Bobby Hull the eighth best on their list of the 100 Greatest Hockey players list. On New Year’s Eve in 1999, Brett Hull made he and his father, Bobby, the only father and son to post 600 or more NHL goals.
