Set: 1983 Topps

Card: #242 Dan Ross

“ Very solid design. Looks more 70s than 80s to me...I wonder how long it is between design creation and publication? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ At first glance I thought this was a 60's or 70's card so I was going to say decent looking vintage card, but 1983 is far too new to be this boring. The front is just so bland, the back is good, almost like 91 Topps baseball. I would give the front a 2 and the back a 9. ” -davidhandberry

“ A simple, classic design. Topps football cards from the '80s are truly one of my all-time favorite things in the hobby. By the way, I wish the Bengal would revert to this style of uniform. ” -mkaz80

“ I like this set a lot. One of my favorite in all of Topps football. ” -switzr1

“ Nice I remember these. In recent months I had gotten a cool deal on a Jim McMahon RC card from this set. It took a long time to get to me because the seller was in Canada. Glad this RCotD is actually from '83 and not one of the Archives or Heritage retros of a new player. I still like those but always prefer the original. ” -captkirk42

“ That there is a nice card. I like the back especially. The way the different sections are boxed and titled, makes viewing it very easy on the eyes. ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ Love it. I really miss the days where there was only 3-5 companies each with only 1 set in the major releases. ” -muskie027
