Score a classic hockey collectible with this 6/1/87 Sports Illustrated Vol. 66, #22 issue. In the midst of one the greatest runs in hockey history, the supremely talented Edmonton Oilers were led by the NHL's supreme talent, Wayne Gretzky. In a gritty seven-game series during the 1987 Stanley Cup finals, Gretzky and his mates outlasted a very determined Philadelphia Flyers team and their sensational rookie goaltender Ron Hextall. The fierceness of this competition is captured with the SI issue's cover photo of Gretzky battling for the puck with sprawled out defenseman Mark Howe. In the deciding seventh game, the "Great One" set up Jari Kurri for the game-winning goal and though the Oilers launched a barrage at Hextall throughout the series, the Flyers netminder stood on his head to earn the Conn Smythe Trophy. Celebrate Edmonton and Gretzky's third Stanley Cup championship with this nicely preserved SI magazine graded (9.2) by CGC. This desirable grade is good for a Census rank of "1/1", with none higher.
