SKU# 82093 The NHL’s 49th All Star game was held January 24, 1999 at the Ice Palace in Tampa, Florida. This would be the final All Star game for hall of famer Wayne Gretzky. The Rangers center captained the North America team to an 8-6 victory over the World. Gretzky netted the 6th goal for the North American team and assisted on the 4th and 7th goal. His three points were a game high and earned Gretzky his third All Star game MVP award. The MVP award was a fitting conclusion to his 18th and final All Star appearance. While the North American team wore red jerseys, we were only able to secure the white 1999 “World” jersey for Wayne to sign. Gretzky has inscribed the front of this limited edition (99) “1999 ALL Star Game MVP” authentic All Star CCM jersey. Gretzky’s black signature and inscription were witnessed under UDA’s Five-Step Authentication Process.

Since 1988, Upper Deck has been a pioneer in the autograph authentication process. The company revolutionized the trading card industry by introducing a new technology that improved the overall quality of the card and added a hologram that prevented their cards from being counterfeited. Upper Deck memorabilia goes through a five-step authentication process. First, an Upper Deck Authenticated representative attends every athlete signing and witnesses every autograph that is signed. Next, the UDA representative and the athlete sign off on a record of the autograph session, which is kept by UDA in a permanent file. Third, each piece of autographed memorabilia is affixed with a serial numbered hologram. Next, a certificate of authenticity is issued to every piece of memorabilia. The Upper Deck Certificate of Authenticity is approximately the size of a large greeting card and is printed on glossy card stock. Included on this certificate is a hologram that matches the one affixed to the item. Finally, each piece of UDA autographed memorabilia is packaged with a registration card. When you by an item authenticated by Upper Deck, you have the opportunity to register your purchase with Upper Deck Authenticated. Should you decide to sell that item later, you can provide the new owner with a detailed record of that item’s history.
