LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. (AP) — The Great One is still setting records.

Wayne Gretzky’s NHL rookie card earned $94,163 at an online sports memorabilia auction Sunday. SCP Auctions says that’s the highest price ever paid for a hockey card.

While a Gretzky rookie card is easy enough to find on eBay, it is rare to find one free of small flaws or imperfections.

The card sold Sunday was graded 10, or mint condition, by Professional Sports Authenticator.

SCP calls it “arguably the most valuable modern trading card in existence.”

    What would a bronze card from Topps be worth limited print one of only 5000 made with the COA?
