1982 Wayne Gretzky Neilson Hockey Cards
Selling select 1982 Wayne Gretzky Neilson Hockey Cards. I have 26 Cards of the 50 Set.
The 1982 50 Card set is as rare as you will see in a collection of cards that highlights Gretzky’s Hockey Career.
The collection shows Gretzky pictured with the likes of Marcel Dionne, Gordie Howe, Mike Gartner, Lafleur, Bossy, Phil Esposito….
Prices of mint to near mint cards and the 50 card collection have appreciated very quickly over time, with asking on some (Mint-Graded) cards on eBay and Collectors.com to be very very high, making putting this set together a great investment.
These are not graded but I would definitely consider over 95% of ones offered here to be mint with the others being near mint.

According to Becket.com
The cards measured 2 1/2" by 3 1/2". The first nine cards featured vintage black and white photos from Gretzky's childhood up to age 17. The rest of the cards featured color action photos highlighting Gretzky's pro career. All the pictures on the cards are framed by white and orange borders in a dark blue frame. The card number appears in a star at the upper left hand corner of the card front. A facsimile autograph was inscribed across the bottom of each picture. The card backs had captions to the pictures and include a discussion of some aspect of the game. The card backs were bilingual, i.e., French and English. Many of these discussions were accompanied by illustrations. The cards were issued as inserts with Neilson's candy bars.
Please reference your bid for Card# as all cards are being sold individually. As sold, the card #’s will be removed.
Hopefully the pictures do each card’s condition justice.
