Belanger was part of the era where not much offense was expected out of short stop

The early 1980's changed that with Yount, Ripken, Trammell, etc. Dickie Thon was on his way to join that group when he got beaned,

Today --- most of the playoff teams (if not all) have big production out of SS:

Correa, Lindor, Didi G., Seager. etc.

It's a different world out there indeed. Ed Brinkman, Belanger etc would maybe be a 24th-25th man in today's baseball

I always wondered how they decided who got the Super Veteran cards in that issue. Most were slam dunks, but others like Sutter, Tekulve and LaRoche were head scratchers. Blyleven probably should have had one, and my man Fisk was frozen out as well.

Such a beautiful set, I've always loved 83 Topps. That was the last season of Johnny Bench, Carl Yastrzemski and Gaylord Perry, so I'm partial to their cards. The Reggie Jackson wearinng the shades is a dang cool card.

Between the 3 big rookies Sandburg, Boggs and Gwynn, I'll take the Sandburg as it's the only one without a gratuitous @$$ shot. Hahahaha
Seriously though, the Strawberry from the Traded set was my favorite rookie card that year.
