Card #1: 1977 Topps Star Wars #260
1977 Topps Star Wars were the first packs of trading cards I remember opening. It's been over forty years, but I can still remember going to the Dobashi Market in San Jose's Japantown and bugging my parents to buy me packs whenever we shopped there.
Card #2: 1981 Fleer #574
A few years later, my parents took me to Seattle to visit my cousin who was attending UW. It was on that trip that my parents purchased my very first complete set of baseball cards. I'd sit down, sort, and resort that 1981 Fleer baseball set over and over.
Card #3: 1987 Topps #320
Last, but certainly not least is the 1987 Topps set. If I had to guess, I opened at least 10, maybe 15 boxes of this product back in the day. My mom would take me to Costco/Price Club a few times each month and each time we'd buy a few boxes of this stuff.
I feel truly blessed that my mom supported me and my passion for collecting cards, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. My mom was always there for me, my siblings, and my father. I will forever be grateful for all of the sacrifices she made for us. Thank you Mom! I love you and miss you so much.
Happy Mother's Day and sayonara!
