1989-90 Action Packed Prototype Card
"VERY RARE & LIMITED"
This card was produced by Hi-Pro Marketing as a Test Issue / Sample / Promotionally Issued card of The Great One, HOF'er, Wayne Gretzky.
Card is NM-MT or better. Card is thick.
Card is unnumbered and designated with a black star on the back rather than card number, and has a large black bordered "SAMPLE NOT FOR SALE" imprinted on the reverse of the card. A thick prototype/promo card of this Hockey great.
Action Packed never got the license to make basketball / hockey cards during that year, so all that exists are the promos. Collectors are starting to go back and find out that these 1990's promos are very tough to find, and that they were produced in far less quantities than originally thought.
