Opinion for Gretzky Memorabilia Frame
I’m currently completing a few jersey frames which include signed pictures and a signed puck in the middle. See attached Hasek frame for an example. I have the Gretzky jersey and pictures but no puck. I haven’t bought it yet because I’m considering replacing it with Gretzky’s rookie card. Not sure if it would be Topps or O-Pee-Chee but it would be graded in the 3-5 range.
My question is, which one do you think would look better? Here are some points I’m considering:
Uniformity. 3 frames will have the puck while one could have a card instead. Not sure if this would make it look weird?
Price. Card would cost much more than the puck, but I could invest in it since I’ve always wanted his rookie.
Display of the card. Does anybody think putting the card in the frame change it’s value? I don’t want to sell it but if I pass on and somebody won’t have use for it I’d imagine it will be sold. I’m not sure if the value will be affected because the card is inside the frame (along with the jersey and two pictures) so they may not buy?
Feeling. From my perspective I think I would love looking at the rookie card more than the puck. That’s my feeling. Curious what others here have to say.
Teams. Jersey is Edmonton, one pic is Edmonton and the other is a rangers. Having a kings puck would encompass his career (no I don’t care about that stint in St. Louis), whereas the card would prevent me from getting a kings piece in there.
At the end of the day, either would look great. I don’t have anybody in my circle that would have enough passion to provide an honest opinion, so I’d like to hear from anybody that would like to share an opinion! Thanks for listening!
