83-84 O-Pee-Chee Mark Messier

This is one of my oldest cards.  It is actually my oldest card of of one of the all-time greats of the game.  I do have a few older ones, but they aren’t top shelf names, and they aren’t in as good condition either.

I bought this card at a small card show that was in a mall, about 10 years ago.  This mall is located about 35 minutes from wher I live, but I had bought it ther before I actually moved up here.  I know it’s not a highly valuable, but this was the case it was sold to me in.  The seller offered it to me for $5, and I accepted.  I wasn’t sure of the value, but I thought an early 80s Mark Messier was worth at least 5 dollars.  And that’s about what it’s worth.  I still like it though.  And it’s one of y favorites of the cards in my collection.
