I very, very much like it. It has a feel for the sport and with the unpredictable 
nature of baseball. There is a flow to it that few baseball games can claim.

Baseballgames update, June 2010 

Hiya fellers! We hope you're all enjoying an early start to summer -- and that that's 
what accounts for the sudden quietude in the Forum/e-list after a pretty busy May 
-- a pretty busy past four months in here, in fact.  In any event, it's time once again 
for another installment of the monthly state-of-the-website address, so we'll 
just see if that doesn't bring the slow traffic of the past week to a complete 
grinding halt, as usual! 

It's mostly the boilerplate reminders this time around, since there's no new 
material at the main website (although we recommend it to any of you who haven't 
yet visited), and the Forum's cover-boy -- *Gem Play Ball! Baseball Game,* the scarce 
1947 promo piece from Gem Leather Goods -- remains ensconced on the front page 
for one final month. 

Before we repeat old business, though, let's offer the customary warm welcome to 
the new entities who signed into the group in May -- say hello to concrete20001, 
sportkrank2121, mainembc, yearlingstud17, goalrusher65, bobscanman, 
hugesmile2000, rexcharger, siusal09, wgmthree12, regiehaug, and tbquebec.  
We're glad to have all of you on board here! If you haven't yet done so, 
please make sure you're familiar with our Forum Policy 
[ http://baseballgames.dreamhosters.com/Forumpolicy.htm ]
before you post to the Forum/e-list -- then take some time to browse our searchable 
Message archives, Files, Links, and Photo galleries, as well as the many features 
at our main website 
[ http://baseballgames.dreamhosters.com/ ].
Stick around, introduce yourselves, let us know how you found us (seriously -- that's 
useful info for us), and don't hesitate to chime in with any questions, comments, 
or news that you might have. 

If you've got something interesting to ask about, tell us about, or show us, 
don't be shy!  Newcomers to the group especially, take a look also in the Photos 
section's "Mystery Games" folder -- maybe a fresh set of eyes will at long last 
help us polish off the remaining enigmas there.  Games 3, 4, 6, 8, and 9 have been 
solved, but we're still looking for additional info on #s 1 and 2, and #s 5 and 7 
continue to elude identification. No prize money for a correct answer, but 
the gratitude of the front office will be yours. 

We hope no one was too put off by the latest round of technical glitches from 
our Yahoo hosts, which confounded conversation in the Forum/e-list last week 
by causing some messages to be delayed by several days while having others 
appear in duplicate or triplicate.  The situation seems to have been cleared up -- 
at least until the next Yahoo snafu -- but for those of you who registered to receive 
individual e-mails from the group and found your in-boxes filling too quickly, 
remember that you can always adjust your membership to receive all of a day's 
posts in one solitary e-mail (the "daily digest") or to receive no mail at all (but 
hopefully you'll check in right at the Forum itself).  Just click that "Edit Membership" 
link up at the top center of the masthead and follow the instructions.  Takes but 
half a minute and you can always switch your e-mail status back to a different 
setting anytime you like. 

We'll add again, as always, our frequent but ever relevant advisory, to both 
newcomers and veteran members of the group -- please do make sure your 
Yahoo membership has you registered/subscribed with a currently active e-mail 
address. We do occasionally check for and eliminate memberships with an inert or 
disconnected e-mail address -- and for some reason, that's the status of a number 
of folks who've joined in just the last few months. If you're signed in that way, we have 
to assume you're no longer really on board, and, regrettably, your membership will 
soon be deleted.  So please do keep your status active, fellers -- just click on that 
"Edit Membership" link above the Forum title if you're no longer using the e-mail 
address you registered when you joined, or if you need to update anything else 
about your membership.

Another reminder here that we've paid fresh attention to the Calendar feature 
of the Forum, which can be accessed from the main menu on the left-hand side of 
the Forum's front page.  Upcoming shows that may feature vintage tabletop baseball 
games and other memorabilia for sale, in addition to their main focus on sports 
cards, are listed there.  If any of you fellers attend any of those shows, be sure to 
file an informal report here to let everyone else know what was or wasn't available!  
And certainly, if you do indeed obtain some vintage game there -- or anywhere, for 
that matter -- let us know about what you've added to your collection.  We, and 
we expect most everyone on board, would be very pleased to see more posts 
and pics along those lines -- so c'mon, fellers, if you've got something old or rare 
to show off, tell us, and send your photos to us *off-list* at Butch7999(at)aol.com 
so we can post 'em in the "Wha'd Ya Get?" album of our Photos section.  We'd 
also like to be able to post some more pics of "Your Tabletop Leagues" in action, 
too, so c'mon guys, don't be camera-shy! The unpleasant alternative is posts 
from your front-office numbskulls here, yammering on about some vintage game 
we've added to our own collections! 

Let's see a little hustle out there now! 
Keep up the chatter, boys!

Replaly update 

I just finished my 18th 40-game league, the 1970 season using ACTION PC baseball.
The Twins took the championship, although the Orioles led the league in batting and
pitching. Clemente not only won the batting title, but also broke my 40-game season
record for triples with 8. Other worthy performances include McCovey hitting
17 homers, Cepeda driving in 43 runs, and Jim Perry getting 8 wins.

Disappointments included both Aaron and Mays, as both were just average. Ah well,
maybe my 2nd foray into past years when I did not follow baseball yet (born in '68)
will result in better years for two of my favorite old-timers. 

Current project is the 1977 season, which is about when I starting becoming familiar
with MLB. PIrates, Reds, Phils, Dodgers, Yanks, and Red Sox are fighting it out.
What a great bunch of stars on these teams!

APBA Cards and game boards 

I have two large boxes full of APBA cards dated from the 1920s to 1980s. I also have
a bunch of gameboards in their original boxes. Most of the boxes are pretty beat up,
but the boards and everything inside seems fine. Where is the best place to go to
find out what these cards are worth? Most of the cards are baseball, but I have some
football and horseracing ones as well.

Re: APBA Cards and game boards 

Butch probably will fill you in on more details, but one way I've gotten
at least a ballpark idea of what any sort of sports memorabilia is worth
is to do keyword searches on eBay. It's at least a good starting point.

If you don't mind me asking, what years are the APBA football cards you have?

Re: APBA Cards and game boards 

Hiya s-f, welcome to the group and thanks for your question!  No, seriously -- thanks
-- you and Chris just broke up the longest message drought in this Forum in at least 
six months and maybe six years. 

As Willie just replied, sure enough, your best gauge of market value (for almost
anything, fortunately or unfortunately) is eBay, the planet's dysfunctional flea
market.  *APBA* card sets, like those for *Strat-O-Matic,* often fetch better prices
than complete games (box, board, charts, &c'), so we wouldn't worry about the condition
of the boxes and accessory paperwork. Be sure to check completed auctions,
not just asking prices for auctions or BIN's that are still active. 

Incidentally, as you're new here, we'll remind you to consult our Forum policy
on advertising --
http://baseballgames.dreamhosters.com/Forumpolicy.htm
-- you'll have to be a contributing member here for ninety days before you can offer
anything for sale.  If any of the members wish to contact you with offers for your
sets, they're free to e-mail you off-list.

One other thing not to get too excited about (and you may know this already)
is that the cards dated 1920s were produced in the 80s or after.

Re: APBA Cards and game boards 

Thanks for the info. I have been searching eBay to see what the cards are going for.
It seems to vary from $10 to $150 for a complete set. I have sorted through all
the baseball cards and the majority are from the 70s and 80s with random teams
from the 20s through 50s. Most of the cards do not have a copyright date on
them, so I am assuming these are originals.

I also have golf and football cards and maybe horse racing. I haven't sorted
through the football cards yet, but I think I have a small box and a large box 
of those.

I guess I will put some complete sets out on eBay and see what happens. Most
people seem to start their auction at $10. 
... If I got $150, I'd be really happy.

Re: APBA Cards and game boards 

Hi again, s-f!  The prices you quote are roughly typical, although we've seen
quite a few older, scarcer sets far exceed those numbers.  Auction prices depend
heavily on exactly which season set (some are in much more demand than others),
overall condition, and of course which potential bidders (and how many) actually
see the auction.

The best way to determine whether a set is an original or a reprint (in the
absence of a copyright date) is to check the placement of the red "12" result on
the cards.  It's the same for each card in any given year's set, but moves to a
different spot in any reprint edition. For example, the red 12 is next to the
black 24 on every card in the original edition of the 1972 season set, but it's
next to the black 64 in the later reprint edition.

Musty smell to old games 

Is there anything that can be done about the musty smell that some old
boardgames have? If the smell is strong enough it sets off my allergies.
Also,what causes that mustiness? Is it just age? Or is it the result of a
previous owner storing them in a damp environment? I'm seriously considered
selling some of my older games due to this problem.

Re: Musty smell to old games 

Hi there, Nat, welcome to the Forum and thanks for your excellent question!
The musty smell you get from some old games is sometimes just the smell of
aged cardboard that's full of a lot of awful chemicals and acids involved in
the manufacture of cheap paper products, and has also been "perfumed" by a lot of
different ambient smells (smoke, food, you name it) over the years.  Often,
though, what you're smelling is mildew, that ubiquitous mold common to every
warm damp surface. 

There's plenty of remedy for it, though, some more effective than others depending
on how badly the cardboard and paper have been infiltrated.  For starters, check out
the "Game Doctor" folder in the Forum's Files section -- there's a file there
("Mildew") that specifically addresses ridding games of those pesky little spores.

Most of those treatments are for more severely affected games, though, so if
you're not really seeing anything but merely smelling something, it might not
even be mildew at all but merely those "age effects" we mentioned.  In either
case, a good airing in bright sunlight can sometimes be all the game needs --
ideal if it's not humid outside and there's a light breeze.  Other "home
remedies" that have been reported as successful include baking soda and
kitty litter.  Find a big clean box or tub, cover the bottom with one of those
substances, put the game in on top of that, and sprinkle some more on top of
the game.  Seal the box or tub, let it sit for a day or a week, and when you
reopen it the musky smell should be substantially reduced if not gone
entirely.  Some of the other fellers on board may have some other useful 
suggestions in this vein.  Anybody?

Re: Musty smell to old games 

They make these little gel packets you often find when you buy shoes or
electronics. I generally save them. Place these on or inside the game.
The more the better. Open the games and place them in the sunlight inside
your house. Turn them over occasionally. Keep them away from humidity like 
basements or attics or garages. You can quicken the process by blow drying them 
but that takes time and effort. I have reconstructed a lot of smelly games this way. 
Do not use airfresheners or frebreeze etc. Too mush moisture and you'll end up 
with a game that smells like flowers.

Hey there Rob, thanks for that touching follow-up on the *Lucky 7th* saga!  We're
glad we were able to be of some little help in making that happen.  We honestly did
wonder, Sunday, how that would turn out for you, since our own dads -- who introduced us
to another version of dice baseball a lifetime ago -- have been gone for quite some time now. 

Our apologies, too, for not having yet gotten back to you on your history of *Lucky 7th
and the transcription of the rules -- plenty thorough and accurate enough for your Fathers' 
Day presentation, just a few very trivial tweaks necessary before we put it up for the 
"official record" in the Files section here. We'll get to it as soon as we can!  Thanks again!

putting on display.  Please contact me at emeek91(at)sbcglobal dot net
and let me know what is needed.

Hi Alfonzo, thanks for that news!  Very cool. Don't be shy about offering some 
guiding input about the display and whatever explanatory text is to be used in it. 
The front office here is at almost the opposite end of the country, so we can't 
provide any tangible assistance, but we're here to help if you or the library need 
any information about any of the games or the history of tabletop baseball 
in general...
