On the way home I opened the pack and this was the first card I saw.
A familiar face as I had recently watched the 1979 World Series the previous fall and had remembered the "We Are Family" team. I can remember getting a Detroit Tiger card which was a big deal as I grew up in Michigan. I don't remember all the cards that day, but I do remember one more.
Steve Rogers? Why would I remember this young right-hander? Growing up, my family had a very close friend and mentor by the same name and I thought that was the coolest thing I had ever seen. His name on a baseball card.
I can remember that day like it was yesterday and that was the day I fell in love with baseball, baseball cards and I still cherish those days.
