1988-89 Wayne Gretzky Game Used Stick.
A classic example of the Gretzky game-used stick, this Titan TPM 2020 model includes many of the hallmark characteristics employed by the Great One.
“W. Gretzky” has been stamped on the front of the shaft, while the back of the shaft has been stamped to read “WG-11-002″ down near the blade. Knob end has a black foam “Gripper” that Wayne preferred to use instead of tape, with a black sharpie “99″ written on the shaft just beneath that. Blade has been wrapped with black bulldog tape.
Stick dates from Gretzky’s first year with the LA Kings in the 1988-89 season.
Signs of use are evident by the various marks that pepper the shaft. Stick remains in excellent condition and is uncracked.
Top-flight wooden stick from the Great One dates to the late 1980s, before he switched to Easton aluminum shafts.
Guide Value or Estimate: $1,000 – $1,500.
