Your first card-collecting memory

For me, it was opening packs of 1973 Topps, purchased from the concession stand at Pee Wee Park, the little league field in Bowling Green, Ohio. I remember how the wax paper felt, how the gum smelled, and how much of a bummer it was to realize, the following spring, how "old-fashioned" my stack of about 200 cards had suddenly become.
