Oh to be young and to have long hair again! One of our all-time favorite Wayne Gretzky issues, offered is a recently graded PSA 8 NM-MT example of The Great One's 1981 Oilers Red Rooster "Long Hair" variation. Relative to the "Short Hair" variation, all versions of the "Long Hair" are considered quite scarce, but it wasn't until recently that PSA began to distinguish the different versions. Apparently, there exist at least four different variations of the variation, if you will, each with a different line of text beneath the front portrait image. The offered example is the highest of only three examples on record of the "Long Hair" version that reads "In order to play hockey well, a player must develop his abilities to skate." Another of the four different versions of the "Long Hair" shows a total of three copies on record, while the third and fourth versions report total populations of just two and one. There is another line in PSA's population report for uncategorized "Long Hair" versions, which reports a total of 33 on record, while the more common "Short Hair" variation reports a total of 154 copies on record.
