Most Expensive Hockey Cards

Wayne Gretsky, also known as ‘The Great One’, is likely the most well known hockey player in the world. He also previously owned the most expensive baseball card, Honus Wagner tobacco card which later sold for $2.35 million.

One card of Gretsky himself recently sold for an astonishing $94,163. The 1979-80 Wayne Gretzky O-Pee-Chee rookie card was sold by California-based SCP Auctions in May, 2011.

You may still be asking, what is the world’s most expensive hockey card? While the Gretsky card sold for a staggering amount, two other hockey cards bested the recent sale.

A mint graded 1911-12 Imperial Tobacco Georges Vezina hockey rookie card sold for $100,000 in April, 2007. Vezina was a legendaly goalie playing for the Montreal Canadiens.

This expensive hockey card sale was tied by a September 207 sale of a rare 1910-11 C56 Edword “Newsy” Lalonde hockey card. Lalonde previously held the record fothe most goals scored by a player.
