Mail Day! Dual 1981-82 O-Pee-Chee Wayne Gretzky

I was one a small Gretzky kick a few weeks ago and ended up bidding on (and winning) a few auctions for a few early 80s Gretzky cards.  Figured that I didn't own much of him while with the Oilers and wanted to fill that void at a reasonable price.

#242 - Wayne Gretzky / 1981-82 O-Pee-Chee Game Winning Goal Leader.  Nice card of a young Wayne wearing an obviously airbrushed helmet.  He would score a total of 12 game winners for the Oilers that season - 2 ahead of Bryan Trottier and Mike Bossy of the Islanders.

#237 - Wayne Gretzky & Michel Goulet / 1981-82 O-Pee-Chee Shorthanded Goal Leaders.  Gretzky and Goulet (Quebec Nordiques) would tie as the leaders for goals while down-a-man in the 81-82 season, lighting the lamp 6 times shorthanded.

There was another but it was sent to an invalid address and had to be remailed.

  1. I have a bunch of the other Gretzky leaders and the record breaker from 82-83 all mint from the pack if you are interested in trading for them.
