This is the key rookie card of hockey's greatest player. When people talk about the greatest athletes in sports, you often hear names like Babe Ruth, Muhammad Ali and Michael Jordan, but one could make a great argument that none of them dominated their sport the way Wayne Gretzky dominated hockey. At the time of this writing, Gretzky held more than 60, that's 60, NHL records from regular season, playoff and All-Star play. Some of the remarkable accomplishments from Gretzky's career include: finishing with 894 goals and 1,963 assist (2,857 points), 15 NHL All-Star selections (8 First Team and 7 Second Team squads), nine Hart Trophies as the league's best player, 10 Art Ross Trophies, two Conn Smythe Trophies and five Byng Trophies. Gretzky was also part of four Stanley Cup Championship teams with the Edmonton Oilers. His regular season records of 92 goals, 163 assists and 215 total points seem unreachable. In fact, he is the only player in history to reach 200 points in a season and he did it four times. He was, naturally, inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1999.

This particular card up for auction, which is much tougher than its Topps counterpart, has been graded a PSA 6 EX-MT. This is a high end example with visual qualities far exceeding the assigned grade. This card would be a great candidate for resubmission. Please see below for high quality images of the front & back of the card.

Wayne Gretzky 1979-80 O-Pee-Chee OPC #18 - RC - Edmonton Oilers - PSA 6 - EX-MT
