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.

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.
