Default Do you recall your first card you got in a pack?

This could be interesting. My first year I got packs was in 1969, Was only six at the seasons start, but my dad got me a couple packs, and I recall the famous Aurelio Rodriguez batboy card

They say memories should sometimes stay there, but I love em. Anyone else recall their first packs they opened and any of the players they got?

At a dentist. The guy gave me a choice of suckers ( a dentist, I kid you not ) or a pack of baseball cards. Easy.

Keith, the sucker wasn't the dentist. He was just trying to build a practice. The cards were a small price to pay for those who failed to take the bait.

Thank you all.

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

My first pack was also 1969. I only got one pack that year. The card I remember was Reggie Jackson. Dad and I sat in the car while I looked at the cards and he said "Hey this guy is pretty good". That card survived a few years in the toybox, and finally got taken out when I started collecting a bit more in late 73. I still have it, and probably a card or two from the pack but I don't remember who.

I also have the second one I recall, a 1971 coin of Danny Cater, also from the one pack I got that year.

I don't remember the first card I ever got but I do remember the first baseball card I ever saw. I was six years old when my friend showed me the 1962 Topps Mickey Mantle card he got from his brother. I recently bought one just because it was my first baseball card experience.
