I got to give a shout out and say “Thanks!” to David M. of Industry, Pennsylvania. David so kindly sent me three cards that I needed from the 1979-80 Topps set, including the sweet, unmarked checklist that you see here. And he didn’t even want anything for them either…just the satisfaction of helping out a fellow hockey collector.
I am now only 6 cards away from completing my 1979-80 Topps set. And yes, I do have the Gretzky–though I wouldn’t mind another one 🙂

This is definitely the last "great" hockey set.
not only Gretzky, but bobby Hull and Gordie Howe – and many other modern Hall of Famers.
You should list the last cards you need – who knows, I might have it.
The last six I need for the 79-80 set are:
8 – Shutout Leaders
33 – Gary Unger
123 – Mario Tremblay
150 – Ken Dryden
165 – Bryan Trottier (Record Breakr)
209 – Gilles Gilbert
