The 1983 Topps baseball card set is one of my favorites of the 1980s for three reasons:
- the design is fantastic (with a nod to the 1963 set design)
- its loaded with stars and Hall of Famers
- it contains three key Hall of Fame rookie cards in Tony Gwynn, Wade Boggs and Ryne Sandberg
As Fleer and Donruss had entered the market a couple years earlier, you could clearly see that Topps was trying to step up its game to hold off its competitors.
There’s just so much to love about this set as it was one of the last sets produced before the “Junk Era” was underway later that decade.
And in this guide, I’ll run through the ten most valuable to look for.
