The 1983 Topps Traded Baseball Card Set features 132 standard size cards numbered 1T-132T. The set is an extension of the 1983 Topps Baseball Card standard issue featuring players who were traded during the season and rookies who were not included in the base set. Topps began issuing the modern version of it's Traded / Update sets yearly beginning in 1981 and the sets have been very popular with collectors ever since.
