Wayne Gretzky Rookie Card

gretzky2Wayne Gretzky’s rookie card was released by Topps and O-Pee-Chee in 1979. In both sets, the card is #18.

The only differences between the Topps and O-Pee-Chee cards are the logos and bilingual languages on the reverse of the O-Pee-Chee card for the Canadian market (English/French).

The card shows his stats from the 1978-79 season in the WHA.

The O-Pee-Chee Wayne Gretzky rookie card can often fetch $1,000, depending on the condition, while the Topps card can be had for about half the cost.

The only PSA Gem Mint card ever given a grade of 10 sold for $80,000 at an auction in 2006.

Wayne Gretzky started playing for the WHA at age 17. When he went professional for the 1979-1980 season, Wayne was considered the best prospect to turn professional since Guy Lafleur. As Captain of the Edmonton Oilers during the 1979-1980 season Gretzky scored 51 goals and gained 86 assists for a total 137 points in 79 games played (average of 1.734 points per game).
