An older kid gave me a 1968 Lou Pinella when I was in "Kinny Garden" and taught me how to flip cards at recess...

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.

It was a pack of 1984 Topps. Only one card remains: Dave Dravecky. I don't remember who else was in the pack. But I still have Dave, even though he now looks like an elephant sat on him.

Default 1959 Topps Red Wilson

My first card was a 1959 Topps Red Wilson, a backup catcher for the Tigers. My folks were both teachers and my dad was a coach. They made such a big fuss over me getting a Tiger in my first pack that it fueled my passion for collecting that I still have today, some 58 years later.

Don't remember the specific first card, but it was from a pack of 1956 Topps Davy Crockett cards.

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 have these memories
1. First football pack (and some of the cards) 1986 Topps.
2. Second baseball pack: 1988 Donruss, only have one card from it still, Mark Grace. I do not recollect my first pack, but I had a couple of 1987 Topps cards, so I can only guess the Donruss pack was my second.
3. First hockey pack. 1989-90 OPC. Do not know if I have any of those cards still.
4. First two cards purchased not relating to packs. 1989 Pro Set Football Chris Miller, 1988-89 Topps Hockey Scott Arniel.

The pack was 1986 Donruss. I have no idea which card was on top, but I could probably name most of the cards that were in there. My favorite was Johnny Ray because he had the highest batting average.
