Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Exceptionally crisp super high-grade rookie card of Wayne Gretzky, universally recognized as the greatest hockey player ever. This card is the "1952 Topps Mickey Mantle" of hockey cards. The Gretzky rookie will always be one of the few most important of all hockey cards, especially prized in extremely high grade. Only 44 of the 2,195 Gretzkys submitted to PSA from the 1979 OPC hockey set have ever been assigned this ultra high grade of MINT. This is an extraordinary 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, perfectly centered, bright colors, a flawless image, and without the slightest hint of chipping to the blue borders. A spectacular world-class example of this most sought-after modern hockey-card classic in Mint condition. The SMR value in PSA MINT 9 is $4,500. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000.
