Default Which Gretzky Auto to keep??

My last 2 Upper Deck purchases have been very kind. Having never pulled a Great One auto in 8 years, I now pull 2 in consecutive boxes.

What say the masses of BO... if you had to choose... I am trying to decide which one to keep.

Choice A:
Pros: low # /13
Cons: Kings Uni


Choice B:
Cons: no #, but still a SP
Pros: Oilers Uni

That's a toughie. The only thing that keeps me from saying the Kings Gretzky hands down is the logo they used on the puck because he never wore the purple and gold.

Not even a question in my mind, keep the Legends. Oilers, nice bold sig that won't smear/smudge/fade like the Trilogy puck autos.

Wow, congrats on the amazing pulls. I'm with everyone else, keep the UD Legends AUTO. That set design becomes more and more legendary every year thanks to the 1997 UD Legends Football set (what does the Walter Payton sell for these days?). As far as modern set designs are concerned across all sports, the 1997 UD legends AUTO design is becoming the 1952 Topps baseball design of modern cards (with respect to 2003-04 Exquisite Basketball Rookie patches design).

Nice dilemma to have there.

Easy choice IMO!

Not really a part of the set but if a purist wanted it to complete the set then that is what they go for.

Keep the Legends Gretzky - not even close

Not a fan of the puck autos. The pen used made the auto too thick in my opinion. If go with the other.

Gretzky will NEVER be thought of or remembered as an LA King, keep the Edmonton Auto and sell the other!

Okay, I made my vote. So after 50 votes, and at a clear 4 to 1 ratio, it looks like the 1997 Legends is the clear winner and the one I was leaning towards, and besides the wife actually likes it better....

...maybe I will hold out for one with him in a St. Louis Blues Uni

Not sure, it was kind of a joke because the other post said that no one will remember him as a King.

Yeah, my wife doesn't really like my collecting, she just thinks it takes up space, when I pulled the Legends Auto, I told her what it can roughly sell for, and that I would like to have a Gretzky auto in my collection she actually said "keep it". I was shocked.

I would keep the Oilers auto. Old school and very clean auto.

The gold auto is bunched up and kinda unattractive. Don't get me wrong, I'd love it, but if I had to choose, I like the Legends.
