I have been in Search of a Site to log and track my Trading cards. This one just might fit my needs. It has been a search to find a quality site to work with and This one is on the mark thus far. I am waiting on my new scanner so I can also save my collection on a second site that will allow me to document location of cards easier. I am working on a very large project somewhere between 500,000 to a Million Cards to get organized. You asked about my first pack to open. Well 1973 I was introduced to the Noise makers for my bike, and those noise makers were Football Trading Cards. I went to the 5 and Dime and bought me several of those packs and they even had gum in them so bonus I was then cool riding my bike and chewing gum. At that point in my life I was not a collector. I had no clue about that side of the Cards. I hate to even think about what special cards I might of destroyed in my bike wheels but man it was fun. Thanks for this site and hope to grow with you all.

What's up guys! I just joined this site today. I was 10 years old in 1973 and I still remember walking to school and taking the long way so I could go past the drug store and buy a pack or 2 of these cards and a Chunky bar! I would spend my lunch money my parents gave me. I knew the old ladies in the cafeteria would always give me a P&J sandwich and a chocolate milk at lunch. I guess they thought I was poor, LOL!
I still have all my cards that I collected in the 70's & 80's (no, mom did not throw mine away). I am just getting back into card collecting as an investment thing that is much more fun than stocks. I still enjoy opening packs, but I know the smartest way to invest is to just buy the cards you are after. So, I do both. Right now, I am trying to make a database of all my cards old & new. I got my work cut out for me so wish me luck.
I hope to learn some things from the folks on this site & maybe bring something to the table myself. Let the fun begin!

Greetings! I just registered and this site seems amazing.
This is the first pack of cards I ever opened and I still have them. Most of my collection is baseball, but this will always be my first love.
