In my opinion should of been a 9.0 but only my opinion but please look at the pictures to judge for yourself. Even with a very thin line on the left side of auto which you cannot see unless you rotate it in the light the surface grade was still a 8.5. This is why i feel the corners of the card would of been an 8.5 the card would of gone 9.0 or lowest 8.5. You may also look in google and type in 2005 cup ovechkin archives and it will show all 99 copies of ovechkin.
This is a very good guide for clara fying that the patch has not been altered.. Scroll down to card number 28 of 99 and you will also see that the patch is correct with no alterations at all. I believe there are only 9 six color break copies out of the 99 cards. Here is your chance to own one of the best investment pieces in modern day hockey cards. If you have any doubts now or questions that I have not answered please feel free to call me.The card will be placed in a magnetic top loader, taped to insure it does not come apart and wrapped with bubblejet wrapping and placed in a cardboard box or holder for added protection.
