The 1983 Topps baseball card set has three major rookie cards. This set has rookies of Tony Gwynn, Wade Boggs, and Ryne Sandberg. Also, there is a Willie McGee rookie card and a Frank Viola rookie. There is also a key second year card of Cal Ripken Jr. in the set, as his rookie was in 1982.
This set has great investment potential for the long term as it is not often that you will find 3 great rookie cards in one set, 3 rookies that will be in the hall of fame if they are not already. (I have not been keeping up with the hall of fame voting in baseball but I am sure that Boggs and Gwynn are in already)
Unopened packs and boxes are not that expensive in comparison to newer cards and there was a rarer Michigan Test version as well. Also, O-Pee-Chee, the Canadian equivalent of Topps also has cards from 1983, though the player selection does not include all of the rookies. Of the big three, only Tony Gwynn I am certain has a card in the set because I bought a box of them before and only got a Tony Gwynn rookie card and a Cal Ripken Jr. second year card.
All in all, this is a great selection of cards to add to your collection.
