Critically Important Investment Piece

An incomparable offering of one the market's most desired modern day productions. For those who study the modern card era, there are few productions across all sports that set the tone in which all others are measured. We must recognize that the entire market benefited from what has become one of the single greatest modern productions ever made. Even the more novice of investors can appreciate what the Upper Deck The Cup brand has brought to the market. Ushering in iconic figures like Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin in 2005, to now depicting one of the best young hockey brands in Connor McDavid a decade later. Since its release, The Cup brand has pushed the limits of what premium modern cards can be with its appealing design and natural beauty. What we have here is a virtually unparalleled #2/99 masterpiece which resides within an elite Beckett 9 holder. In hand, the aesthetics of this card really pop. Showcasing perfect alignment with a glowing silver foil inlay which surrounds a highly prized 3-color jersey swatch. Sporting traditional Oilers colors: orange, white and blue. The fragile periphery is largely free of wear with clean borders and strong card stock. Boasts immaculate surfaces which possess pretty color and perfect print. Shows high-gloss with excellent registration. Finally to cap off this amazing card, the autograph is penned in blue ink and has been awarded the illustrious '10' assessment. Despite some moderate corner wear, this card fully lives up to the hype of an elite RPA. This card/player pairing is worthy of the finest modern-card portfolio, and as the McDavid continues to dominate the league, his premier rookie cards such as this one will continue to soar in value. Easily among the most exciting modern hockey cards we've had the pleasure of brokering. Comes with PWCC's highest recommendation. Please see the video highlight for more details.
