Wayne Gretzky began the 1988-89 NHL season as a member of the Los Angeles Kings after leaving the only professional hockey team he had known. While one fan base was disappointed with his departure, the 'Great One' was capturing a new avid fan base in southern California. Gretzky continued his assault on goaltenders by peppering them with shots on net and assisting his teammates as they did the same. His leadership and mastery of the game in turn improved the overall team performance. This 16'' x 24'' composite display is highlighted by an action photo of the Kings center unleashing one of his patented slap shots, complemented by a close-up and an impressively designed Kings graphic. Gretzky has inked his signature in black paint pen. Let's not forget about the Kings logo hockey puck that is coming through the Plexiglas. Gretzky's signature is guaranteed authentic through Upper Deck Authenticated's Five-Step process.
