The two most commonly collected “Saint Patrick” rookie cards were issued by O-Pee-Chee and Topps in 1986. The O-Pee-Chee card carries the most value and is the most in-demand card today.

In mint condition, the value of a Patrick Roy rookie card is no less than $200. In local markets where Roy is most celebrated (Montreal and Colorado to name a few) the prices are inflated due to high demand.

As a 20-year old, Roy became the youngest Conn Smythe winner ever as MVP of the 1986 Stanley Cup Finals. In turn, he was also chosen for the NHL All-Rookie Team and nicknamed St. Patrick by fans. Roy continued goaltending for the Montreal Canadiens, who dominated at the Adams Division in 1987–88 and in 1988–89.

Roy’s jersey number 33 is retired by the Montreal Canadiens and Colorado Avalanche. As coach and general manager of the Quebec Remparts, Patrick was the seventh rookie to win the Cup.

gretzky2Wayne Gretzky’s rookie card was released by Topps and O-Pee-Chee in 1979. In both sets, the card is #18.

The only differences between the Topps and O-Pee-Chee cards are the logos and bilingual languages on the reverse of the O-Pee-Chee card for the Canadian market (English/French).

The card shows his stats from the 1978-79 season in the WHA.

The O-Pee-Chee Wayne Gretzky rookie card can often fetch $1,000, depending on the condition, while the Topps card can be had for about half the cost.

The only PSA Gem Mint card ever given a grade of 10 sold for $80,000 at an auction in 2006.

Wayne Gretzky started playing for the WHA at age 17. When he went professional for the 1979-1980 season, Wayne was considered the best prospect to turn professional since Guy Lafleur. As Captain of the Edmonton Oilers during the 1979-1980 season Gretzky scored 51 goals and gained 86 assists for a total 137 points in 79 games played (average of 1.734 points per game).
