Wayne GretzkyBook - 1996
Wayne Gretzky is by far the most famous and talented hockey player to hit the rink. Known as "The Great One" by his legions of fans, he took part in four Stanley Cup championships and currently slams pucks and scores goals for the St. Louis Blues. Beckett Great Sports Heroes: Wayne Gretzky pays tribute to the man who makes the ice sizzle. Lavishly illustrated in full color, each Beckett Great Sports Heroes volume features distinguished sports authorities assessing the career of one of the greatest athletes of our time. Each book is a piece of history, a celebration of a sports legend. . . . Wayne Gretzky shined for the Edmonton Oilers for nearly a decade. In Los Angeles, he energized the flagging Kings and sold the winter sport to sun-worshipping Southern Californians. In 1996, he joined forces with the St. Louis Blues.
