Spectacular and unusual tribute to the elite status of Wayne Gretzky as one of the worlds top athletes. This Tegata display is a Limited Edition of /99 with each personally inked by The Great One; one of just five athletes so recognized by Upper Deck in this format. Originated as an innermost-circle keepsake which were only permitted to be created by elite Japanese Sumo wrestlers, this Tegata is done in the same style with Gretzky's handprint in black ink on firm 9.5x10.5" Hamada paperboard with his beautiful 10/10 signature crossing in silver Sharpie, numbered 3/99 and even his own Japanese inkan seal stamp. His inked handprint is surrounded by a double-matted collage style background of Edmonton Oiler images. Entire piece measures approximately 36x36" including the decorative frame, in NM-MT condition. A version of Michael Jordan's Tegata sold for over $15,000 in our recent auction, attesting to the elite nature of this genre. Includes UDA holo but cert is not present.
