Lot 572. The Other Mario Lemieux 1985 Topps Rookie Card. This Lemieux rookie is on the bottom of a 1985 Topps Hockey wax box than might have contained the more common Lemieux rookie card in one of the packs inside. The card on the box bottom presents a different photo than the standard card. Like regular cards, it is printed on both sides and, in place of a number on the back, it has the letter “I.” The box is complete and grades vg-ex. The Lemieux card is one of four on the bottom of the box. The three other players are John Ogrodnick, Gil Perreault and Glenn Resch. Like Lemieux, Perrault is in the Hockey Hall of Fame. One of these alternative Lemieux rookies professionally graded vg-ex 4 recently sold for almost $700. Properly cut from the box, this Lemieux example seems as if it would grade vg-ex. MB $50. Winning Bid $204.
