1979-1980 O-Pee-Chee Hockey #18 Wayne Gretzky Rookie SGC NM/MT 88

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,440

Graded NM/MT 88 by SGC. Spectacular ultra 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. This is an exceptionally crisp, extraordinary high-grade example of the premier modern-day hockey card. The 1979-1980 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 showing tiny touches of wear at the extreme tips, bright colors, a flawless image, and a natural rough-cut, which is characteristic of 1970s O-Pee-Chee cards. Outstanding centering, with an ever-so-slight tilt to the image. An extremely impressive high-grade example of this most sought-after modern hockey-card classic. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $1,440
