This is the first set I remember collecting, I was 11. I stopped collecting in 1988 and I just started again, from 0, in Dec. 2018.

The first set I bought for my new collection is the 83 O-Pee-Chee because... well it's awesome. I need to go figure out this database wantlist thingie now.

My favorite set. It has great rookie cards. I remember trying to get all the 1982 World Series Champion Cardinals.
