And in the “Hockey Heroes” set collectors can capture cards of legends like Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Eric Lindros, Bobby Orr and Joe Sakic.
Packs will yield five randomly assorted cards featuring the aforementioned players, while a special limited 16th card featuring Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux from the 1987 Canada Cup can be had as a gift with purchase from while supplies last. Some lucky collectors may also find some other special surprises in National Hockey Card Day packs like rare autograph cards.
