    Description

    1979 O-Pee-Chee Wayne Gretzky #18 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. Wayne Gretzky was still a young man in perfect health when he was bestowed with an honor not offered since Roberto Clemente and Lou Gehrig before him. "The Great One" was sent straight to the Hall of Fame upon retirement without the requisite five year waiting period. Ordinarily, you'd have to be dead, or at least dying, to get that kind of treatment. While number four and number twenty-one were retired from the Yankees and Pirates wardrobes respectively to honor the fallen ballplayers, Wayne Gretzky's famous double-nines were declared off-limits for the entirety of the National Hockey League in perpetuity! This was a distinction previously afforded only to the great Jackie Robinson in the entirety of the four major professional sports. Skating his way into all of the scoring record books, Wayne Gretzky is was so aptly nicknamed "The Great One" if anyone ever should be. One of the most desirable hockey cards ever issued and is now among the most iconic cards in the hobby.

    Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. As one would expect from a NM-MT+ card we are immediately drawn to the amazing colors, clean borders with crisp corners, and close to precise centering.

    I thought that Peter Calderon was very pleasant and had a very professional attitude.
