1979 O-Pee-Chee #18 Wayne Gretzky Rookie

Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $1,057.50

Graded NM/MT 88 by SGC. Exceptionally crisp super high-grade rookie card of Wayne Gretzky, arguably the greatest hockey player ever. This is an exceptionally high-grade example of the premier modern-day hockey card. The 1979 O-Pee-Chee hockey issue is extremely condition-sensitive due to its blue flush-to-the-border design. The offered example is pack-fresh with four sharp corners, bright colors, a flawless image, and virtually no chipping to the extreme edges of the condition-sensitive blue borders. The centering slightly to the top left and the tiny print dot above the letter "z" in Gretzky's name keeps this gem from receiving an even higher grade. A spectacular example of this most sought after modern hockey-card classic in Nr/Mt-Mt condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,057.50
