Default Cheapest Gretzky Auto?!

Hello everybody! So, I havent bought hockey product in a long time...however, I grew up in LA idolizing Gretzky and have been collecting his base/inserts since the 90's. I have probably 250 or so low end so far, with some pretty nice inserts, but I would LOVE to pick up an autograph as the keystone for my collection.

Funny story, my dad found a stack of hockey cards he thinks one of his buddies gave him or maybe he bought for fun when he was a kid. It was one pack of 1979 topps. Guess what was in there, pack fresh, in a box of commons? Yup!

So, I am curious, what is the low end for a Gretzky auto? Is it possible to pick one up for under $200? I dont need a high end patch auto, just an authentic non-in person auto from a product. Any suggestions?

Or, what new products typically have higher chances of pulling a Gretzky auto? These might be dumb questions, but I know some years of particular products can be particular player heavy...so if I were to buy a box, of a certain year, is there a particular product that would yield me the best odds?

Thanks for the help!

You could probably get one for $100...just look on ebay and find some that seem to be cheaper.

I think he has signed so much for UD over the years you should be able to find a nice auto for $150-$200.
