Your first pack of cards?

12 posts in this topic

What was the first pack of cards you bought?  For me, it was 1988 Topps Football.  I was a ten year 49ers fan, and in the pack was a Jerry Rice.  I was hooked, soon I saved up my money and bought a whole box of 1988 topps football.  I had just moved into a new town and the common interest in cards helped me make friends, as it was the thing most boys did back then.   Today I have a large Jerry Rice collection.

I remember it very clearly. It was 1983 and my Dad took me to the card shop. He bought me a 1965 Topps leaders card with Koufax and Drysdale. It wasn't in great condition, but I was fascinated immediately by the older cards. He also said I could get a pack - I chose 1981 Donruss because it was older than the 1983 cards. I still have those cards!
