I don't recall what my first card was, but I do recall some other details from my start in card collecting like my first memorabilia card, a Mike Piazza game-used bat. ( I still have the card somewhere in my collection) This lead to Piazza being one of my favorite players as a kid.

Default pack

a 66T wax pack. Although a cousin gave me some 65T cards earlier then that. Recall hating the look of the pennant flag on every card

I still remember it well. 1972 Topps Gil Hodges manager card. I was too young to recall his playing days but the card gave me the creeps. As my dad told me he had just died.

Default 1966 Batman?

I'm not sure what year my twin brother and I started collecting cards, but I remember having a bunch of Batman cards. He also had some Green Hornet cards, and I had some Tarzan as well.

If I had to guess, I remember we had some 1967 and 1968 baseball as well. I do know that all the cards originated from a small corner store that was run by a wonderful Portuguese family, who were close friends of my grandparents.

Default '74 Topps Palmer

1974 Palmer. I had just started to get into cards and my dad was a huge Jim Palmer fan. He said, "son, go find me a Palmer!". I wanted to make him so proud - I pulled like a dozen Palmers out of packs. This was one of them...

Definitely a pack of 1986 Topps football. I remember a George Rogers 1,000 Yard Club card and a Bobby Herbert.

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

Thanks you reminded me! My first pack of baseball was not 1987 Topps it was 1987 Donruss. I remember cards from that pack being Johnny Ray, Andy Van Slyke and Jack Clark.
