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.

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.

Agreed, one of the greatest sets ever. The Darryl Strawberry traded set rookie card is one of my favorites.

The Tommy John as a member of the Yankees proof card is a good one too!

That Strawberry was was the first 'get rich' card when it came out to hold to pay for college for me. Later came Will Clark and Gregg Jeffries..

My personal favorite cards were the Super Veteran cards. I rememeber busting pack after pack until I found the Reggie & Nettles cards.
