1983 Topps was a very strong set. Not only was the design attractive, there were some marquee rookies included (Boggs, Sandberg and Gwynn). I don't yet have the Sandberg or Boggs cards, but otherwise feel pretty good about the representative cards I have on this page.
Darryl Strawberry is part of the Traded set, but there are no hard and fast rules about how I conduct my sampler album business, so I included it. It's one of my favorite cards ever, and the first "big" card I ever traded for. I acquired it in high school, begrudgingly giving up a 1986 Jose Canseco to get it.
