What is the first pack or box of basketball cards that you can remember opening? For some this might be harder than others to answer so that's why I ask what one you have the first memory of opening.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

I rember being about 7 years old or so during the early 19980s and someone gave me a bunch of hockey and star trek cards for halloween. I was a kid and wasn't interested in hockey or cards back then so all of those cards were played with and eventually pictched out in the trash. X-( A couple of years later when I was into sports my daddy bought me a pack of football cards for christmas. I took a little bit better care of them but most of them became damaged/destroyed over the years. I eventually learned my lesson.
Edit: As far as basketball was concerned my first packs that I can recall was the 1990-91 nba hoops.

1991-92 Hoops McDonalds, with a Happy Meal, when I was 8. I got Larry Johnson and Dikembe Mutombo in that first pack, and still have those today, set aside in special frames, for sentimental value.

I remember my first packs like they were yesterday. A local video store at the time sold packs of basketball cards behind his counter. Kids from school were going so I eventually bugged my parents to the point my Dad took me one weekend. I got to open 3 packs that day:
96 scoreboard - which got me a unlicensed scottie pippen card and and two Allen Iversons (one was a checklist i think)
96-97 collectors choice - pulled a KG/Kobe/Jermaine O'neal mini
96-97 nba hoops - pulled an MJ the big finish subset car (thought it was the coolest looking card then lol)
The cool thing is that I'm pretty sure I still have all those cards
And one year Santa brought me a box of 94-95 skybox, my first box ever. My parents told me that I should open one pack a day lol. I'm surprised I actually made it last 3 whole days. I was bummed that there wasn't even an MJ base though.
Miss the good ol' days
