The Great One Sells At A Great Price (Well...Expensive)
In a day where one subject is the topic of almost every news outlet a single rookie card went up for auction through SCP Auctions and ended up making waves in the hobby. A 1979-80 O-Pee-Chee Wayne Gretzky PSA Mint 10 that less than 3 years ago sold on eBay for $50,000 ended up closing at $94,162.80.
One thing that has been pointed out is the rough edges of the card and the question of this being a true Gem-Mint card. If you look closely you will notice that three of the edges (right, left and bottom) are in rough condition. Is this card really a PSA 10 or did PSA error (on the side of the Great One)? I included the scans of the front and back of the card so you can get a better look.
