1983 Donruss Action All-Stars Baseball Checklist, Team Set Lists and Details

Share:

1983 Donruss Action All-Stars Baseball cards go big. The oddball set saw the card maker push its boundaries and try something new and slightly unconventional. Looking back, it’s not a particularly valuable set or one that left a lasting impression. But if you can get past its larger dimensions (or nab some supplies to properly store them), it’s one of the nicer 1983 releases. And it’s still cheap, too.

1983 Donruss Action All-Stars Baseball Box

The checklist is a modest 60 cards (with the checklist itself being #60). It’s certainly not comprehensive but it’s not tiny, either. Stars make up a big chunk of who’s in it, including Nolan Ryan, Pete Rose, Rickey Henderson and George Brett. There’s also a second-year Cal Ripken Jr.

Measuring 5″ by 3.5″, 1983 Donruss Action All-Stars is basically like two traditional cards set side-by-side. And Donruss takes advantage of the added area. For starters, there’s a large portrait that takes up one half of the card. They don’t go out of their way to evoke much personality like the Studio line would do in 1991, but it’s different. The other side of the card offers an action shot, framed as though it were stuck in an old-time photo album. Basically, it’s a lot like a horizontal version of 1983 Topps Baseball with the two main photo elements flipped.

1980s Donruss baseball card sets rarely skimped on back info. It’s no different here. It’s also the biggest benefit of the larger format. The stats and bios have more room to breath. As a result, they’re easier to read. And speaking of stats, there’s several additional categories versus the regular 1983 Donruss set.

Reggie Jackson Variation

1983 Donruss Action All-Stars Baseball does have one notable variation. It’s on the back of the Reggie Jackson card. An error version sees the red background typically reserved for the bio area run into Jackson’s 1981 and 1982 stats as well as his career numbers. This one carries more value than the version with correct coloring.

1983 Donruss Action All-Stars Mickey Mantle Puzzle

Like the main 1983 Donruss Baseball set, there’s a painted puzzle included with 1983 Donruss Action All-Stars. However, it’s not the same Ty Cobb one. Rather, it’s Mickey Mantle, making it one of the most popular in the run of Donruss puzzles.

And because it’s part of this side set rather than the more widely owned flagship, finding Mantle pieces — or the entire puzzle — isn’t quite as easy. That’s not to say that it’s rare. It’s just harder to put together in comparison.

Every pack has a card with three of the required 63 pieces.
