If anyone has this game or any of the season rosters for sale/trade please let me know.
I know the Ebay guy who was selling them hasn't been active in a long while on there and
I'm interested to finally try this intriguing-looking game. I hate when I finally get around
to trying a game after finishing another project and find that it's not available. lol.
thanks!

Hi Chris -- nice to see another frequent contributor at our old Yahoo Forum finally joining us
here at our new location! Thanks for your question -- a quick answer, since it's time-sensitive:
there is one example of Sherco's Grand Slam Baseball Game currently available on eBay --
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Shercos-Grand-S ... 1523273823
The box lid is rather crushed, but the contents appear complete and pristine, and the price
is maybe only a shade high, not unreasonable. Auction ends today a little past 6pm EDT.

Just wanted to let you know about that one in case you're desperate to have one right away.
A little patience, though, and more examples should be up on eBay over the next few weeks.

The vendor to whom you refer is surely Dave Parsons and his Taylor Marketing operation,
and you're quite right, it's been over a year or more since he's sold anything on eBay.
He seems to have vanished without a trace, absent from both the tabletop-sports and
Delphi sports forums as well. We're goin' with "abducted by aliens."

Hey Butch, it's nice to be remembered! Yes, I saw that a couple were on Ebay, but they don't seem to have any player rosters.
I was hoping someone on here might, or the game with the player rosters included. Those two are the first Sherco games
I have seen in a while on there too. Thanks for the heads-up though. I'll keep looking and watching on here too.

Well, I went ahead and bought that game on Ebay, so I'm still looking for player rosters if anyone has a lead.
thanks!

Chris, do you require certain particular teams / seasons, or will anything do for starters?
We might have something here in the front office...

Yes, actually. I could use the 1968, 1972, 1973, 2003, 2006, or 2007 seasons, with the 72 and 73
being the ones I'd like to find the most. Barring those, I'd take anything in the 80s probably.
I'm trying to finish replaying each baseball year I have been alive (since '68), and those are
the seasons I have left, but when I am done I'll probably go back to the 80s and start a project.
Let me know and thanks!

Hmm... we have a small variety of team rosters here, but mostly individual "Teams of Yesteryear" rosters,
and not much at all in terms of full season rosters. So we're not confident this will be of any help to you --
one of the boxed sets we have bears a 1971 copyright on the lid, and the material inside is variously
copyrighted 1973, 1974, and 1975, with some mentioning no date at all. We think these are possibly
1974 sheets with ratings based on the 1973 season, but you'd have to check the names on the roster sheets
against the actual real-life AL and NL rosters to be sure... fingers crossed... probably '74-75...

Ok, I just double-checked Baseball Reference, and, sure enough, it is the 1973 season.
Man, you nailed it! Thank you so much for the help!

Hey, Chris, very glad we could be of assistance!
That's definitely all we have from your "want list," though, so, hopefully, other guys on board here
will be along to offer up rosters for some of those other seasons...

You might want to provide that "want list" in a new post in our "Transactions" sub-forum here...
just a suggestion... Also, someone over at Jeff Downey's Tabletop-Sports forum might have them
