1984 Topps was the first, that I remember, pack of cards I bought. I was probably 5 years old. My grandmother would walk to 7-11 with my sister and me. Dragging behind us a wagon filled with empty glass pop bottles. The recycling money would be split between the two of us to buy whatever we wanted in the store. I would always get some kind of candy and a pack or two of baseball cards. Out of the 6 or 7 packs I bought I managed to pull a Strawberry RC. Not knowing the possible value of mint kept cards, mine got a little creased and all corners are rounded by now. It's still in my PC.

The color team logos on the back, with actual team colors, was a relatively new innovation; if they were in other sets from 1984 or prior I would like to know.
