Starting as the Topps gum company in 1938, the Brooklyn, NY based, Topps Gum was eventually replaced by Bazooka Bubble Gum in 1947 and is now one of America's most recognized products. Topps added trading cards in 1950 to try and enhance gum sales. That year, Hopalong Cassidy and Frank Buck "Bring 'em Back Alive" cards were issued. The following year the first Baseball cards were published (Red Backs, and Blue Backs game cards.) In 1952 the First set was issued with the famed Mickey Mantle Rookie Card, and a Stick of Gum!

If you are holding one it is real. Star was a short lived baseball card company that produced cards around 1989, and 1990. Not able to compete with baseball card giants like Topps, Donruss, and Upper Deck they went out of business. They are real, and will sell at a real price.

How can you tell the difference between a real Gretzky rookie card and a fake?

I actually own a graded one so I know it is not a fake. Some people say that the O Pee Chee card has extra yellow on the left shoulder of Gretzky. It is more or less a blotch. The Topps card only has a faint line of yellow on the left shoulder. Other than that Buy pre graded cards. If the condition of the card is to good to be true. It is a FAKE!!!
