I hope it wasn't bought just to be cut up by a card company!

That looks nothing like an authentic Gretzky gamer. It's not even mesh, the nameplate letter font is way off and should be plain white, not orange, and the numbers are not even close. That's a fake, and an extremely poor one at that.

I did some looking, and I agree. The 9's on the side shouldn't overlap the striping from what I can find, and I can't find a single photo that shows Orange lettering for his name

this photo shows both the side numbering and his nameplate, plus the patch on the shoulder to compare as well, which appears to be different, so maybe my photo is the wrong year, google is hard for this old stuff





this photo is attributed to 1979-80, and does show overlapping jersey numbers on the side..... interesting research here



one more, this is attributed to October of 1979, but is black and white

Also - see here: Edmonton Oilers Jerseys - A Look at Edmonton Oilers NHL Jerseys throughout History.

The auction states it's from the 1980-81 season which matches.
