1979 Topps Hockey Set Break Including Wayne Gretzky Rookie is Available

Your Chance to Own a Gretzky Rookie Card for Only $11.50
  • November 16, 2022

A Wayne Gretzky rookie card for just $11.50? That is going to happen! Our sister company, Vintage Breaks, is offering a complete set break of 1979 Topps hockey cards including an SGC-graded Wayne Gretzky rookie card, and the break is only $11.50 per spot.

We love teaming with our sister company, Vintage Breaks. Many collections we have purchased here at Just Collect have been offered for sale in the form of a set break with Vintage Breaks. 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.


New call-to-action


  • 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, Vintage Breaks is 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!

We offer many ways to evaluate your cards other than using our website, too.

  • Travel to us

If you can make the trip here like the son from my hometown did for this collection- we can make a deal at the office. We once met a father-son duo that drove eight hours from Virginia to meet us to sell a Michael Jordan rookie card stored in Tupperware since 1986 - great read here

  • Come to a convention

We keep a LIST of the card shows we'll be attending.  Come stop by the Just Collect table and chat.

  • Meet in-person

If you have a valuable collection and want us to come to you, we'll hop on the next plane out. We recently took a trip to California to purchase a collection that included three Jackie Robinson 1948 Leaf rookie cards that you can read about here.

  • Meet in New York City

We have another location in New York you can meet us at; read all the information here.

  • SHIP your collection 

If you choose to mail your cards for an appraisal, we will evaluate your cards for FREE still. If you choose not to sell the cards, we'll ship them back with shipping fees paid by us!  We can offer our FedEx account with 2-day shipping, fully insured, all covered by us. Simply contact the office to set up this option.


We've run into a wide range of people and collections over the last 25 years. Although Just Collect is known for buying vintage sports cards and especially vintage baseball cards, we are also extremely interested in buying non-sports cards, too!  

Every collection and every collector is different and we treat EVERY collection with the respect and attention that we show for our own collections. We understand that many have put their heart and souls into building their collections. So when you're ready to sell, we understand the feelings that you're going through and will work with you to help you reach a decision that is a WIN/WIN, because if you're not happy, we're not happy.

Whether you have vintage cards or modern wax you want to sell, you can reach out to us any time!
