I was expecting more because hockey may not be even the #3 sport in the US, but hockey collectors pay a high premium for everything. And it's Gretzky. But still, that's a huge score.
I think a lot has to do with the fact that there are a lot of Gretzky jersey's out there. There are less Orr, Howe jersey's then Gretzky's. Hell, this auction site buys from actual players and there families and they have some really nice older, and really rare jersey's on their site almost every 3 months.
