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.

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.

I remember my dad bringing me home some 1983 Topps baseball and football packs, but I don't remember any actual cards.

However, I vividly remember the first pack and specific cards that I actually bought for myself. It was also in 1983, but I bought a 1978 Topps Cello Pack from my local card shop. It had two of my favorite players, Rollie Fingers on top and Dave Parker on the bottom. There was also the Lou Brock record breaker card in there, and for some reason, I also remember Bake McBride and Sparky Lyle being in that pack. I still have them.

1967. I was five and took a walk to the corner store with my dad and 4 year old sister. He bought us each a pack of cards. Not sure what my sister got (Monkees?) but I got a pack of 1967 Red Sox stickers, three to a pack. Some how only one survived. They had been stuck on my Mickey Mouse Toybox.

Don't recall the first card, but I'm pretty sure the first pack was 1977 Topps.

Default GBK and Topps

My first pack of cards was garbage pail kids, probably around 1987. I still have every single one to this day (in the hundreds at this point). My first pack of baseball cards was 1991 topps. I vividly remember coming home and seeing the packs of cards on the kitchen table for both my brother and me. We wanted a Rickey Henderson so bad, but never got one. We got Alvaro Espinoza instead
