The best baseball ever...color coded versions of 70 and 71 seasons... Many variations so watch what you get. Not an avalon hill product...can be played in 30 minutes...only made for two years but the best baseball game ever produced

Superstar dwarfs all others as my most played game. The rules and mechanics are very simple, which is part of its beauty. Also, it is very flexible. Easy to create your own cards, charts, leagues, variable rules, etc. Great fun!

I've always considered this to be the very best of all the baseball simulations. It's much more streamlined than APBA, Strat-o-Matic, or Replay and miles simpler than Dynasty. Plays quickly with accurate stats and is a blast for the older crowd (ie, those who actually remember when Pete Rose or Jim Hegan played).

Pure nostalgia. My first baseball game.

And ... my younger brother Jamie pitched our only no-hitter, a perfect game by Luke Walker (70 Pirates.) He was 10 years old. The only no-hitter I saw in decades of playing baseball board games.

Superstar Baseball (pictured of this page of BGG) is NOT the same game as Sports Illustrated Baseball, which contained the 1970 season charts. SI later published the '71 charts, which added 5 extra players to each team. Then they made the Alltime Allstar team charts, filled with charts for 800 (mostly) hall of fame caliber players. Superstar Baseball (Avalon Hill) changed the charts to cards and whittled the 800 players down to about 100, I think.
So, my ratings are: 1970 SI Baseball 9.5
1971 SI Baseball 10.0
AH Superstar Baseball 8.1

My all-time favorite sports game! I played countless games of this back in high school and early college years. My original game no longer has a box, as it was destroyed years ago, but I do have the Stars of the 1970s card set AH put out for it, as well as the 1927 Yankees from All Star Replay.

This is a great game and often overlooked in discussions about baseball board games. It doesn't have the season replay value of APBA or Strat-O-Matic, but it has a really enjoyable and unique system for playing baseball. I especially like the lefty-righty pitcher-batter system, as it allows for lots of strategy and contemplation.

Yes, I'll play this game any time despite it's roster deficiency and lack of strategy (such as infield back or in). But it's so easy to play, has beautiful charts (1970 version), and reminds me of my childhood when I had a lot of time to play games.

Not the most accurate baseball game but I loved the simplicity and the fact that players were ranked for their career stats instead of single season stats.

Sports Illustrated All-Time All-Star Baseball is the best of all the Sports Illustrated games and the best baseball sim ever. A classic. Superstar Baseball, which features card versions of 96 of the ATAS players, is fun but seems flimsy. (Charts are better than cards any day!) There were 3 sets of charts for individual seasons (1970, 1971, 1972), each with a different format. If you like this game, you owe it to yourself to check out the many sets of homemade charts that have been put together by various individuals over the past few years.

I have the "Superstar" version with the individual player cards. Heck of an enjoyable game. Quick playing with fairly accurate results. Too bad this series was not continued.

9 for nostalgia. My brother and I played this game more than all others combined--times fifty. We drafted, kept teams together (and traded) for a full 162 season, broken up into 18-game miniseasons. All stats kept on yellow legal pads by my brother, who is now an actuary. I think I can still tell you the HR rolls of every card... I would love to play this again.

I have the Superstar Baseball, used to make my own cards. Much much lighter than most baseball sims, which is very much in its favor.

good historical game where you can have Ruth and Mantle on the same team, pitch lefty Grove vs Ted Williams, etc.

This is a very nice and simple baseball game. The first baseball game that I played and I still play it occasionally. While it is very simple, it is fun to play and ideal for new baseball gamers.

We used to have our own league with a draft, stats, and playoffs.

I will never forget Babe Ruth's 34 HR.

First played at WBC 2008 as Toronto. Just straight dice rolling, but if you enjoy baseball and know how to keep score - this is a good social game.

I have the brown box version with the Babe Ruth cover. The intrigue of the various matchups makes this game very interesting to me. I also bought the 1978 expansion set and copies of All-Star Replay that had additional cards in them including Joe DiMaggio, Hack Wilson, and Herb Pennock. Excellent game for solitaire play, too.
