1977 Topps Chuck Scrivener
August 3, 2014
The first of many...
There was nothing, and I mean nothing better in life for me at age 8 than opening my first pack of baseball cards for the year. And it wasn't like it is today, new sets coming out every month year round.
Nope, it was only Topps and the first packs appeared in March. Well, Mr. Scrivener, a guy I don't know a thing about, was the first card for me in 1977. It stuck with me all these years and is the only first card that I remember.
I think the pack came from a Wawa, but don't hold me to that. Although the career of Chuck Scrivener was next to nothing, I will always chuckle when I see this card. I often wonder if I still have the exact card laying around the house somewhere.
