My Favorite Kellogg's Sets - Why I Love the 1983 Set

The 1983 Kellogg's baseball card set drops down to 60 cards after being a few cards larger in 1981 and 1982.  Kellogg's also got away from the blue color scheme of most years and they went with a white/grey color.


Once again there are 20 Hall of Famers along with Pete Rose.  But, there were about 10 guys included in the set that weren't big enough stars to warrant being in the set.


Kellogg's missed another chance to create a card of Andre Dawson.   He was a Rookie of the Year, runner-up for MVP, won three Gold Gloves, was stealing about 30 bases per year and he was hitting over 20 homers a year.


Dawson can't complain much since 1982 AL Rookie of the Year Cal Ripken didn't get into this set.   Wade Boggs was third to Ripken in the ROY vote and he didn't get a card.  Runner-up Kent Hrbek got a card somehow.   NL runner-up Johnny Ray also got a card even though ROY Steve Sax didn't.
