Completely Red: 1983 Donruss

Man, is this set seriously 32 years old? Gracious. A little cartoony, just like '82 Donruss. In fact, this is pretty much the same set as the year before. They pointed the bats the other way, replace the baseball with a glove, and put the "83" next to the "D" instead of below it. I'm pretty sure if Topps did this with their flagship today (barely changing things) we'd all flip our shit. But hey, this was the 80's, man. They were simpler times. So simple, in fact, they didn't even check the spelling of Charlie Leibrandt's name. Nice Bench DK, though.
