“Lost Cards”: The Year After, 1983

21 02 2014


1983 Topps Tiant

Best Player to retire in 1982.   Willie Stargell (Hall of Famer)

Did he have a 1983 card?   Yes – 1983 Fleer & Donruss

1983 Donruss Stargell

Stargell got a card from the two “upstart” card companies, but not from Topps.

Was a “retro” card ever produced?   Topps hasn’t created any new cards showing Stargell on a 1983 design – but Uncle Doc has done so again!

Apologies to:   Luis Tiant, did have a 1983 Topps card, as well as one in the Donruss set (no Fleer).  See that card above.
