1973 Topps baseball. I was 8, and distinctively remember pulling a Johnny Bench card. Sadly, those cards were lost many, many years ago.

1973 Topps. The following year I recalling buying one of those cardboard "lockers" from Topps and actually sorting the cards out team-by-team in each of the slots.

I have one of those lockers, but it is made of vinyl (probably over cardboard) and it was full of cards from the late 70's early 80's when I got it. I am about 30 cards short fo a complete set of 83 Topps Baseball from it. I have absolutely no idea where it and the cards in it came from. I can't remember who gave that to me...Hidden Content <- my wants
most anything I have more than 1 of in my SCF inventory is FT...PM me for info
Always looking to add to these team collections: Toronto Maple Leafs; Pittsburgh Steelers; Cincinnati Reds; Notre Dame; Team Sweden Hockey

My first pack (and I don't even know why I bought it because I didn't by another pack for 4 years) was apparently a 1983 Topps cello pack. I'd been thinking it was a rack pack for years, but now that I count the actual players I remember, it doesn't come close to the 51 cards in a 1983 rack pack.
I still have almost all of the cards. I got a Jim Rice, Charlie Lea, Harvey Kuenn, Lenn Sakata, Richard Dotson, Dave Goltz, Mark Wagner, Benny Ayala, Joe Rudi, Rick Manning, a checklist, Jay Johnstone, Kiko Garcia, Jerry White, Joe Niekro, Chris Bando, Dave Stapleton, Ned Yost, Rene Lachemann, Atlee Hammaker, Gary Carter, Clyde King, Porfirio Altamirano, Gene Tenace, Dickie Thon, Andre Thornton, Ron Hassey, and at least one card I can't remember.

1988 Topps. My dad would buy me 3-5 packs a day and I thought that was the best gift EVER. HA!! I had 2 10,000 count boxes full of junk that i threw away. Only good card I kept was a Topps Chipper Jones Rc. Now I'm back in the hobby and am back to loving the collecting aspect and trading with fellow traders. It makes me feel young again. THANKS GUYS!!!!

1988 Topps here myself. Everytime my Grandpa went to the convienient store he would pick up about 5! Seemed like they kept them in stock just for him being that the packs never changed....
