Among The Finest Investment Pieces In The Market

Presented here is the crown jewel of the '05-06 Upper Deck The Cup Hockey set and one of the most important modern hockey rookie cards in existence. Since being selected #1 overall, 'Ovi' has become one of the most dominate goal scorers since the great Wayne Gretzky with 698 career goals scored; 196 away from breaking the all-time record. Certainly a reachable achievement as Ovechkin is seemingly ageless and continues to dominate year after year. What we have here is an irreplaceable #95/99 The Cup Ovi RPA which lies firmly within a highly prized Beckett 9.5 holder. Boasting box fresh eye appeal throughout with incredible GEM MINT centering, edges and surfaces. The fragile card stock is void of any indentations or imperfections with thick gloss and a gorgeous illustration of this highly talented future HOFer. All four borders are clean with glowing color and precise registration. Furthermore, the autograph is struck directly on the card and is assessed as pristine by Beckett. Perhaps what's most impressive though about this card is the rare 3-color jersey patch. The '05 UD The Cup Crosby has pushed the limits of what premium modern cards can be with its appealing design and natural beauty. This card goes beyond what you see here as it's a true investment piece of one of the most recognized modern hockey brands and players. An incredible opportunity awaits as this card is sure to bring a high ROI as Ovi continues to build his legacy. Comes with PWCC's highest recommendation.
