It was called a Test set because it was a Hockey card set issued in the USA, were the other regular set was issued by O-Pee-Chee in Canada in a lot larger production.
Topps wanted to see if selling hockey cards would do well in the USA.
There is a separate Wrapper and Display box these came in that differed from the Canadian production.
So they definitely came in a pack with one gum.

See more info on page 154 in the Vintage Hockey Collector Price Guide.
If you don't have this guide you should at least buy one.

I also forgot to mention that since the "vintage Hockey Collector Price Guide" came out back in 2006.
There has been three display boxes discovered.
So we know the "Test" cards came in packs and display boxes.

I remember hearing that there were 100 total sets produced, but if there have been boxes discovered then that would not be.
