    1979/80 Topps Wayne Gretzky #18 Printers Production Art From Topps Vault. For the Gretzky collector who thought they had it all! Offered is a rare and possibly unique printing production piece pulled from the depths of the Topps Vault, all confirmed by the Topps Vault COA. The presented item was used for the printing of the 1979 Topps Wayne Gretzky rookie card. It is a production mechanical for the warm red printing plate. What you see in white on this piece would eventually be printed in red on the final card, an example is being offered elsewhere in this auction. The Topps Vault COA is numbered 8554515 and displays a Authentic hologram sticker which is adhered to the back of the card. The plastic case is still sealed via the Topps Vault sticker on the top edge. A rare and fun addition to any Gretzky collection.
