Default Best card in the 1983 Topps set?

Arguably my favorite 1980's Topps set.

Which is your favorite card?

I like the Ryne Sandberg rookie.

For me it is the Wade Boggs rookie. He is the reason I started collecting and watching baseball.

T210 Series 3 Ft Worth, looking for low end examples and especially ones with a Y shaped hole punch. I also have some extra T210's for trade.

As one of the sets I remember best for it's packaging (I grew up in Michigan, so I busted piles of those blue mylar sealed packs.), I think the card most stuck in my head was Ozzie Smith.

The rookies were fine, but I don't remember being excited for them when the set was new. However, this Ozzie shot was just as cool then as it is now.

Agree on the Ozzie Smith.

The Carew also has a nice look to it, with the cool headband shot in the portrait window.
