    1979-80 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Wax Box With 48 Unopened Packs - Gretzky Rookie Year! The holy grail of modern Basketball cards would be an unopened box from the 1986 Fleer series that contains the rookie card of Michael Jordan. The only worthy equivalent in the modern era of hockey cards is this wax box - the 1979/80 O-Pee-Chee edition thanks to card #18, the rookie card of the 'Great One' Wayne Gretzky! Ask any 1,000 hockey card enthusiasts what box from the last 50 years they would want to own and the answer from 999 will be the 1979 O-Pee-Chee series, the 1000th person will eventually admit to lying about his answer. Offered is "that" box as mentioned above with 48 unopened packs. One can only imagine how many possibly Mint or Gem MT condition cards these treasured packs could yield. With the popularity of Gretzky it is safe to say unopened material from this exclusively Canadian series is very scarce and immensely desirable. Reviewed and factory sealed by Steve Hart-Baseball Card Exchange.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
