1976 Topps baseball wax pack - I was 8 years old. I bought a pack at the drug store my older sister worked at. Got a card of my favorite player, on my favorite team - Brooks Robinson, Baltimore Orioles. I took it home and showed my dad. He thought it was cool too. I was totally hooked. I was so excited by it, that I gathered up all the money/change I had around the house and got my sister to take me back to the store the next day and bought as many packs as I had money for - probably about 10-15 packs. If I remember correctly the packs cost 10-15 cents each that year. I still have that 1976 Brooks and after everything else is sold off years from now - I will still have that particular card.

1965 Topps Giants Rookies. I am not sure if it was the first card, but I know my brother needed it for his set. I remember having a t-shirt covered with the iron-ons that were inserts in those packs.

The cards I remember from my first pack in 1978: Don Aase, Pete Mackanin and the Stolen Base Leaders card. Don't know why I remember those three.

The first non-pack card I ever bought was in the summer of 1983, I discovered in "downtown" Barberton something new. A card shop. A store that only sold cards. My dad thought it was the most absurd thing he had ever seen. I begged my mom practically all summer to take me. Around my birthday she took me and I bought my first non-pack card - 1976 Gary Carter for $1. Still have it.

1967 Topps Frank Howard, but I really wanted an Al Kaline. I didn't know about series then (just 6 years old). Opened a lot of packs, got a ton of Frank Howards, but no Kalines. The piles are still vivid.

My 1st pack of cards was probably Return of the Jedi. 1st Football was 1987 Topps and I'm sure there was one of the many Al Toon 1000 Yard Club cards that I still have in there. 1st Baseball was 1988 Topps, too many packs to count and found out last summer I still have most of them.

My dad bought me my first pack in 1965, when I was eight. I remember that I got a Gary Bell card among others. The reason that I remember Bell is that I started buying one pack a week, and every damn pack had another Gary Bell. I think I got five of them before I opened a pack without him.

My mom bought me my first pack in 1972, age 6. I think I remember a Chris Chambliss card in there. The all star rookie trophy must have got my attention. I have the '72 set with the Chambliss in it.
