Default Is it the Gretzky rookie ?

If you think of all the important rookie cards, not only in hockey, but in all sports, is the Gretzky rookie card the one that can be found to have the worst eye appeal on some examples ?

Think about all the flaws that are associated with that card. Sometimes horribly o/c. Sometimes horrible registry. Most often tilted.

I would think there are others, like anything from the 1951 Parkhurst set, where there are lots of registry and cut issues as well.

Does the Gretzky rookie take the cake, or is there another high profile rookie that is found more often than not with major issues ?

Bobby Hull's is notorious for being off center. Jacque Plante from 55 is also tough.

Looking for a perfect Plante rookie is next to impossible! This card is often found with centering issues, tilts, registration issues, print lines, print spots, etc.

Anything from 1982 O-Pee-Chee Hockey is extremely tough to find centered!
