The 62 Topps set would have been the first cards that I ever opened. My family had just recently immigrated from British Columbia to our home in Fort Myers Florida. One of the first things that you do in southern Florida is you learn to swim. For me this was done at the city pool in Fort Myers. After swim practice, while we were waiting to get picked up by our parents we would go across a shell covered parking lot to this little store which was right next to a city park. This 'store' was not much more then a large wagon like one sees at county fairs. One of the things that they always had during the summer besides cold drinks was Baseball cards. So everyday I would be able to buy a few packs. Being from Northern Canada I really did not know Baseball but that slowly changed with my introduction to Little League that summer. Wonderful times.

The '60's decade will always be remembered for its often turbulent times but this set remains as a memory of one of the better times.

This is the first Topps cards that I ever began saving. I never realized that some 56 years later they would remain as my co-favorite set all these years. Many stops at the corner grocery store and lots of loose change spent. If only we had more change back in the day! For some they are nothing special and yet for others they will always be #1.
