30 Wayne Gretzky Rookie Cards

I’m Buying Wayne Gretzky Rookie Cards

As you might have guessed from the subject of this post, I’ve been buying Wayne Gretzky rookie cards over the years. In fact, over the last little while, I’ve managed to accumulate 30 Wayne Gretzky Rookie Cards from the 1979-80 O-Pee-Chee hockey set! Please take a look at my video to see the various Gretzky RCs and what condition each one is in. The Great One’s RC, is one of the most sought after rookie cards of all time, and if you read the news, you might have heard that one sold for over $465K US in August of 2016. Now none of the cards that I acquired were in that kind of mint condition, but I’m interested in buying Wayne Gretzky rookie cards in any condition!
