Nice score, given the condition, I say it gets graded. Your pretty much wanting the big hit, and think the surest way to get it is to open it.

I dont collect hockey, so I have NO clue what year these are, but still, where is the fun in not opening them? Go for it man!

I'm not 100% sure on the year either, but thinking 77/78 or 78/79, both good years..if its 79/80 oh my...but at that point I'd never risk it...would love to own a Gretz RC..but no way would I jeporadize those packs if they are in the condition you say they are...just to valuable....but also understand the desire to rip. But also feel buyers remorse quite often

Hmm, I dont know then, in one sense Id say grade and sell ... then again, I personally would be way too tempted to rip and try and score a nice gradeable Gretzky rookie

Dont forget you'll loose one card per pack due to the gum....while nice, you want dissapointment..open a pack and find the Great One adhered to a piece of gum.

That appears to be 1979-80 and a tray pack too. Get it graded, as long as its sealed its worth $600+ on its own.

For the love of all that is good don't rip that pack. A Topps Gretzky rookie sells fro $250-300 raw. This sealed tray pack is worth a lot more than that.
