1983 Star All-Star Game Set - Summary 

The first official release for Star and one that showcased thirty players from the 1983 NBA All-Star game in Los Angeles - a thrilling game in which the East All-Stars pulled off a 132-123 victory.  

The set is recognized for featuring the first official basketball card for Isiah Thomas--although his card from the 1983-84 Star base set is more highly desired for collectors. 

The cards feature the trademark Star design and all cards in the set feature dark blue borders and a dark blue background on the back of the card.

Isiah Thomas #11

Note that Dr. J has three cards in the set #1 (checklist ), #4 (regular card) and #26 - this one, all tend to have the same rough value, although #1 was on the front of the cellophane pack and is hard to find in great shape. 


Larry Bird/Robert Parish #29
