A set break gives you the opportunity to own a card from a coveted set where you may take home a key card from that set for a fraction of the price to purchase an iconic card. Today you can purchase a spot into a complete set break of 1979 Topps hockey that includes a rookie card of The Great One, Wayne Gretzky, for just $11.50.



  • All 264 cards from the 1979 Topps hockey set are included in this break
  • Wayne Gretzky graded SGC 4
  • Gordie Howe 
  • Bobby Hull 
  • Guy Lafleur 
  • Mikey Bossy 

The condition of the set ranges from EX to EX-MT. Making final appearances on trading cards from their playing days are greats like Gordie Howe, Bobby Hull, and Stan Mikita. As some of the legendary hockey players were retiring, the greatest to ever skate was entering the league; what a perfect time for hockey card collectors! 

The Great One rookie you see above is the exact card from this set break. Gretzky in the Oilers uni, looking up in the air. Ever wonder what he's looking at in this rookie card? Perhaps looking at the scoreboard after he netted one of his 894 goals!

Take a trip back in time when there was no ESPN (launched September 7th, 1979), gas was 88 cents a gallon, and you cruised all day listening to The Wall by Pink Floyd (released November 30th, 1979).

With 264 cards in the set, we are only offering 264 spots in the set break - this ensures that you will take home a card from the set. The list of names is always randomized LIVE on the show as the break occurs; you have the same chance as everyone else in the break to land the cards you desire. For example, if after the random your name lands on spot #18, you take home that very same Wayne Gretzky rookie card you see above! Every spot you purchase will bring a card from this iconic hockey set to your personal collection. 

Each spot is only $11.50!
