1983 Topps Traded is a 132-card update set measuring 2.5 × 3.5 inches. Known as the "circular portrait" set, this set mimics exactly the traditional Topps base set from that year. Similarly to the previous year's 1982 Topps Traded, Topps sequentially-numbered the Traded series from 1T to 132T. Also repeating a theme from the previous year, the backs of the cards are noticeably offset from the base set, with the traded set being a bright, salmon pink in color with black print, in contrast to 1983 Topps which had brownish backs.

The set features player photos as seen in the uniform of their new team, and new prints of rookies called up during the season. The design is a mix of action shots and portraits coupled with another small circular portrait of the subject of the card located in either the lower left or right corner of the card. To the left (or right, depending on card design) of the portrait is the player's name, position, and team affiliation.

The reverse of the card contains the players standard biography (Name, height, weight, throws, bats, how/when drafted, how acquired, birthdate, birthplace, and home city). It also contained the players career statistics up until 1982. If room allowed, the bottom of the card contained either a small comment regarding the players career, previous seasons major accomplishments. Two silhouettes of players in action were also included, one in the upper left corner which was part of the Topps logo, and a second that may have appeared, if room allowed, in the lower right corner, typically of a pitcher about to throw a pitch. And of course, the card's number in the collated set appears in the uppermost left corner.

Key Rookie Cards in this set include Darryl Strawberry and Julio Franco.
