The Sports Illustrated
Baseball Game went
through a number of changes over the years. The game was
in 2 different formats under the original SPORTS ILLUSTRATED
BASEBALL GAME title - a bookcase version and a longbox version.
this incarnation the game used color-coded charts (1 for each major
league team) representing the perfomances of major league players over
the course of the previous season. SPORTS ILLUSTRATED
ALL-STARS BASEBALL GAME (ATAS) used the same general format but instead
of current players the game contained 16 charts of the
All-Stars" from each franchise.
Starting with the re-named SPORTS ILLUSTRATED PENNANT RACE GAME in 1973 the players were no longer listed on charts. Instead players from the previous season had individual cards. The game components also got a make-over but the basic game play remained the same.
The name of the game was again changed in 1974 to the SPORTS ILLUSTRATED SUPERSTAR BASEBALL GAME. The game now included cards for only 96 Hall-Of-Fame players. In 1978 the longbox format was done away with and replaced with a bookshelf freindly box. It continued to be manufactured in this format, with pretty much the exact same card set throughout the production run, until the demise of Avalon Hill in the mid 1990's.
