Description

Sought-after 1979 Topps Wayne Gretzky rookie card, graded PSA NM-MT 8

Graded by PSA NM-MT 8. A superb example of Wayne Gretzky's rookie card, with great gloss, bright colors, and pack-fresh edges and corners. This well-centered example shows the budding superstar—billed as "the best prospect to turn professional since Guy Lafleur"—in his first year with the Edmonton Oilers, ready to turn hockey on its head. In his debut season at just 19 years old, Gretzky tied for the league-lead in points and was awarded the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL's MVP. He would go on to achieve greatness as the most dominant player of all-time, setting scoring records that will never be broken. Gretzky was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame immediately upon retirement, and his number '99' was retired league-wide.
