Valuable Wayne Gretzky #18 rookie card is part of this 1979 O-Pee-Chee blank back uncut sheet. Gretzky holds the NHL records for goals (894), assists (1,963), and points (2,857). He is the only man to have scored over 200 points in a season, and he did it four times. He has 10 Art Ross Trophies as the NHL's leading scorer and was a unanimous selection to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1999. There are only two types of Gretzky rookie card. The 1978-79 Topps card is like this O-Pee-Chee version, but the main difference is that the Topps version is only written in English and the O-Pee-Chee version is written in both French and English. The O-Pee-Chee version of Gretzky's rookie card is the more valuable of the two. Framed, the cards measure 32x47". The frame has a few tiny holes, apparently for screws. The Gretzky card is untouched. Without taking the cards out of the frame, the cards appear to be overall EX -MT. There is one minor crease in the bottom right corner.
