Description

The undisputed king of all modern American hockey cards is found in the offered 1979-1980 Topps #18 Wayne Gretzky rookie card. Known simply as “The Great One”, the dynamic Gretzky transformed professional hockey and put the NHL on the map. Simply put, this 1979-1980 Topps #18 Wayne Gretzky SGC 92 NM/MT+ is a collection cornerstone. Due to the series condition-sensitive edges and corners, highly graded examples from the 1979-1980 edition are almost unheard of. Remarkably, this Gretzky escaped that fate, exuding a “pack fresh” appeal, vibrant blue edges and corners, and pinpoint centering. According to SGC’s population report, this particular Gretzky ranks in the upper 10% of all similar cards that have been submitted to the company. An investment-grade card with tremendous upside, this card is a spectacular addition.
