Default First time Canadian looking for grading help (Gretzky)

Hello, I was going through some old boxes of cards yesterday and found a Gretzky Rookie Card (OPC) that I am quite sure is authentic. I really don't know much about the card business and I am looking to sell this card but I am just wondering if it is worth it to get it graded first.

If so what company should I go with (I am in Canada just south of Toronto). KSA is local, but then I also see PSA, Beckett, SGC and more. Then there is the question of declaration value. When trying to submit a card to some of these companies it asks for a declaration value and I am unsure as to what I should put here since the card is not authenticated or graded so it may in fact be worthless.

Any help would be appreciated and if you are interested here are pictures of the back and front of the card (sorry about quality taken from my phone)

From what I can tell the corners would kill the grade so not sure if it would be worth it.

That being said since this card has so many fakes out there might be worth it for you to get it authenticated by KSA at least so no question exists there.

Get it authenticated as real through KSA the cheapest way possible. That condition you're not really looking at a premium value but there is always demand for real ones of those, especially OPC. You can sell it online at least as real once it comes back authentic.

The corners are bad,not worth grading.Do what post #3 says to see if it's real.
