In the late 1970s, Sportscaster entered the trading card market with a set offering bright photography across a variety of subjects. This impressive 4.75x6.65" card is actually from the much rarer 1980 set printed in Finland, and features the man considered to be the greatest ice hockey player of all time. A young Wayne Gretzky is shown in his Edmonton Oiler days with the entire card being printed in Finnish (including the header, Jaakiekkoiliju, which translates to "Hockey Player"). Graded and encapsulated by PSA as NM 7, one of only eight (8) graded examples.
