    Re: That baseball card you just can't forget

    The first baseball cards I ever got were from the back of a box of Twinkies. I believe it was in 1977. This is what they looked like:



    Unfortunately, I didn't get anyone as interesting as Stargell. The first cards I ever got were of legendary pitchers Rick Reuschel and Jim Slaton.

    Rusty Kuntz - how could I forget that one?

    This one always stuck in my head, just for the goofy factor - and because he was seemingly in every other pack of '81 Topps.



    And I always thought this guy had the least likely name and look of any baseball player I'd ever seen.

    You're right, Kelly Paris looks like one of those terribly unathletic pickup basketball dudes at the gym.

    You must have had all of the packs I needed - Gordy was one of the last cards I got. The great Jim Clancy, on the other hand...

    The 1981 set was the first (and last) set I completed only through the bubble-gum packs. In previous years, I came up short. After that, I began collecting complete sets.

    First baseball card was a Jimmy Wynn out of a Wheatie's box. (They put a 3D reflective coating on those cards, they tended to curl inwards) 2nd card was Willie Mays from the next box of Wheaties, early '70s. That was a BIG DEAL

    Mine was like that with "brownwalls," a banana-seat with a "flame job" and a chain guard that said "Red Hot" on it.

    It was "dope"...in 1978.

    I had a Bob Griese 1971 Dolphins card from Wheaties. I still remember pulling it from the box in my grandma's kitchen. It was the only football card I ever had.
