Is a gretzky rookie card with a fake autograph still worth money?
No. An autograph devalues a card. It makes the card worth as much as the autograph, and a fake autograph is worth nothing.
What is the value of an autographed Wayne Gretzky rookie card and the value of his counterfeit card of the same make signed by the great one?
Rookie card: 1979 Topps Wayne Gretzky Rookie (#18) PSA Graded MINT 9 is valued at a minimum of $425 unsigned. Signed, it speculatively would add no more than an additional $250 at current market prices.

If the number of collectors increase the value will rise, but this could also work…

The current world record for a #18 1979-80 Wayne Gretzky O-Pee-Chee Rookie Card is $94,162.80. The specimen, graded by industry-recognized card grading company PSA, was determined worthy of a GEM MINT 10 grade thus making it a perfect card - all things considered. Some outrage and denouncement exist over the grade assessed due to what appears to be rough edges. O-Pee-Chee, at the time, used wire cutters to cut individual cards from card stock sheets…
In certain savings account plans they have rates of interest and the more you keep your money in there, the more money you get. This is so because they borrow your money temporarily to lend others but you still have credit for that money.
