I bought my first cd in 1992 with money I got from selling baseball cards.
The cd I walked out of K’s Merchandise was Kris Kross “Jump”.
It was packaged in a huge box for just one cd, I guess so you couldn’t walk out with it.
I also bought Weird Al’s “Off the Deep End” that day.

A couple little know facts.
Kris Kross had a sega cd game called “Kris Kross: Make My Video”.
Electronic Gaming named one of the “20 Worst Games of All Time”.
I’ve never owned a disc man. 

This was before digital.
And After cassette tapes.
What was the first CD you had?
