A few thoughts on great players, for what it's worth. I think offering sets like that are a great way for a gamer to take an initial plunge into a new game. One idea would be to release the top 100-120 players from each decade - based either on their stats during that decade or their career stats - in the form of two AL and two NL teams. Speaking as someone whose gaming funds are a bit tight, I'd love to have the opportunity to spend $20-$25 on 8 teams and see how I like both the game and the components and then invest in seasons if I want to go further.
Personally I'd rather see a selection of great players than a selection of great teams. When you have great teams there is always the chance that one player is found on more than one team, and besides, most other companies have done that. The only companies that I recall offering great player sets are Strat-O-Matic and Payoff Pitch with Hall of Fame players and Strat's two sets of significant players that aren't in the Hall.
There are a couple of great World Series sets already available. You know, Fall Classic's Fall Classics. <g>
Okay, it's corny, but it's late and I'm punchy.
Haha. I realize Greg has produced a ton of seasons already and the World Series teams. I was responding to the question about a set of great players. World Series teams do that to some degree.
For what it's worth, I'd buy any more World Series sets that are made. Would love to do a 64 or even a 128 team tournament with WS teams...
That day is approaching. I now have 32 seasons done and could do a 64 team set. Black Friday Sale PDF! $32. Paypal: firstname.lastname@example.org ... Today only!
The Fall Classic Website says 29 seasons done, but the PDF's for 1934, 1973, and 1978 are now ready and will go up on ASG in a few days, which brings us to 32 seasons and 64 teams.
Could you clarify what's on sale for $32??
Today only. $32. 64 World Series teams for all the seasons that have been completed. You get 64 World Series teams. $1 per World Series, but you have to buy the whole 32.
PDF only. This will not be offered in print, neither today, and maybe never.
I've decided to extend the sale through the weekend.
My interest in a great player set would be a Franchise-All Star set. That way, it's team based and I can set up a tournament. Got a couple of them going in other formats right now. Plus, 32 franchises makes for a clean tournament. (I'm a big solo tournament guy... Haha) Best year card or average of 7 years would be my preference over career stats. As far as which players, that's always a tough choice in a franchise set. I could give you my input, but so could many others, and we'd probably all disagree on some players who should or shouldn't have made the cut... Haha.
