Games to play with baseball cards

Postby Gogrel В» 05.02.2020

What a great post. I can't imagine how long it took you to gather all this together, thanks for the entertaining read! Still my all-time favorite board game. Great post! I don't think I've ever played any of these, but they make for cool oddballs. Nice work on the very informative post. Fantastic post I love tabletop baseball games, and this was a great overview of them. I might have to wander into my local WalMart to see if they have any of those Platinum Baseball games.

A very happy National Card Playing Day to all of you! With all of the Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year's, etc. See what I did there? I can find no information on who organized this day, why or when; I just know that it shows up on all of those national day calendars and such.

No matter, it's really all just a big excuse to show off the latest oddball acquisition I've made and the research rabbit hole I soon fell into:. Like the Tom Baker Baseball Game I have no idea how this game was actually played because this is the only such card I was ever able to track down. Sidenote - it's a little weird to associate "Slammin' Sammy" with stolen bases at this point in time. Of course, Sosa hadn't yet ballooned into the monster of a man he'd become with the help of, ahem, Flintstone Vitamins.

It wasn't until about a decade later that one of the major card manufacturers decided to give the card game business another go:. I found this nifty box at a local garage sale two summers ago. For shame. Here's the set up:. Championship Baseball was born. From what I understand, the game itself is very similar to their previous edition. The biggest difference in my eyes, as well as the most important to this card collector, is that the cards used for the gameplay were blown up to standard size:.

The Jack Brickhouse deck, made up of cards that featured prominent players and moments in Cubs history. The inclusion of the all-but-forgotten Jimmy Cooney seems strange on the surface, until you consider that while in Chicago, he entered became the sixth player in the modern era to turn an unassisted triple play. Additionally, this is pretty much his only baseball card - so, I'm quite glad he snuck in there. Also from , we have the MLB Rookies deck, which showcased the top rookies across the Major Leagues from the '92 season.

Unlike we thought when Mr. May here initially came up to the Bigs, this and all of his rookie cards are pretty much worthless. Not every top prospect pans out, right?

Lastly, there's my favorite such set - HeroDeck's Cubs deck. These look pretty cool when they're completely assembled. HeroDeck has produced dozens of these decks for several teams across the major sports, the world of music, pop culture, military history, etc. It looks like they stopped producing new sets in ; but, if your team has already been done, I highly recommend adding a set to your collection. Of course, there are countless more sets that blend playing cards with baseball cards; however, what you see above is the extent of them in my collections.

That about does it for games that blend our love of baseball cards and our incessant need to compete; there really just aren't any such products floating around in today's Topps monopoly landscape The concept is still alive courtesy of a brand called Platinum Series Baseball:.

In an effort to games things up from fighting dragons, I with on a game cards bring my old trading cards out continue reading play and give favorite players like Cubs catcher Jody Davis additional plwy beyond his one dollar market price. View Comments. In our play testing, the draft took considerably longer than the game. Among my baseball childhood memories are my lunchroom trading sessions in elementary school and scrambling for enough spare change to grab a new pack of cards at the grocery store. From what I understand, the game itself is very similar to their previous edition.
