This 30-card set of Edmonton Oilers was sponsored by Red Rooster Food Stores in conjunction with Sun-Rype, Jell-O, Maxwell House, and Post. The player cards could be collected from any police officer or Red Rooster store. The cards measured approximately 2 3/4" by 3 9/16". The front had a color photo (with rounded corners) of the player, with the Oilers' logo and player's signature across the bottom of the picture. The player's name, uniform number, and a hockey tip were given below the photo. The back had the Red Rooster logo at the upper left-hand corner as well as biographical and statistical information on the player. The bottom included logos of the sponsors and an anti-crime message. The original printing included four "long-hair" Gretzky cards as well as coaches' cards of Billy Harris and Ted Green. Reportedly those involved didn't approve of the photos and thus most of the offending pictures were destroyed. Consequently, the new poses were much more common and the old ones more scarce. The mass-produced second printing produced six variations so that the total possible cards is 36. These (original) other six cards were very hard to find as they were apparently not released to the general collecting public. The set is checklisted below using sweater numbers for reference.
