Default 09-10 Wayne Gretzky Exquisite AU/Patch /25 INFO?

Whats up guys, I collect mostly basketball cards but during the lockout this summer in fear of loosing the season, I expanded my collecting and picked up my first hockey card.


I paid 1250 for it because I think of Gretzky as the Michael Jordan of Hockey and really like this set. Plus I hadn't seen one of these for a while and thought I should get it while the gettin was good.

So, question is, whats it really worth? It looks to be in really good condition and has a nice 2 color patch from his Oilers Jersey. Can you guys tell me anymore about this card? Is the jersey piece from his rookie year? Sorry for the ignorance, but I just thought this was an awesome card.

Thanks guys.

It's worth about $400 less than what you paid.

one sold on August 2 for $860

one sold on June 16th for $850

Flash back to almost a full year ago and your $1250 would've been a good price

12/22/10 one sold for 1300

1/9/11 one sold for 1467

current market value has the card not valued as much, but you never know. People could get into a bidding war and it shoot up over 1300 to break you even, but realistically you'd be set to lose about 4-500 after fees.

*edit*

Forgot to mention that is a very sweet card and if I'd over pay for anything, it'd be that. Rest assured you still have a monster card.

Not a horrible overpayment. Really one of only 3 guys in hockey (Orr, Howe the others) it isn't terrible to overpay for.

I pulled the 05-06 Sidney Crosby 1/1 Ultimate Collection and sold it for what i thought the value was 9500, Some people cant believe that i sold it for that and some people were happy about it(my wife). Now that i look back i know i didnt make a mistake, He is never going to be Gretzky, he keeps coming down with concussions and cannot stay onthe ice for 4 games in a row, It was the value that i thought it was worth. I know at the time i could of gotten more for it, but 9500 paid my bills and helped me out a ton!! now whoever has it cant sell it for anywhere near that, even though many people think they can.

Its your value of a card, If you want it to be 1500, 2500, etc thats your opionion and what its worth to you.

Just my 2 cents
