Also still on the shelf (well, actually a tub underneath the toddler clothes) was this. Excellent condition, opened it and it looks to have never been played, all 20 dice are there. $1.50.

Kids' version. $1.50, same church thrift. Looks like it may have been played a few times, but good condition. Allows us to get the younger ones involved in some of the family games. And there's enough elem aged kids in the house to have this thing get a workout.

Avalon Hill edition from the mid-70's. Picked it up at a small thrift for two dollars, only because I can now finally get that light blue pikeman that's been missing from my 3M edition.

So now that I've ghouled one pikeman from this copy I have lots of spare parts left!

305. Board Game: Strat-O-Matic Baseball [Average Rating:7.53 Overall Rank:855]

Strat-o-matic Baseball, box style shown, $4.99 at GW. This appears to be the 1970 Season (roster list says '1971 Strat-o-matic 24 Team Baseball Rosters...', but a strat fan website says this is the 1970 'strat' season.

Looks to be complete, but I've only inventoried about half of the teams. I have cards for nine teams and one set of blank 'nameless' cards (for adding rookies and trades, eh?).

I know nothing about Strat-o-matic. But this looks to be in very very nice condition. A few of the cards have rubber band gunk, but most look unplayed. It looks like the only teams that got a bit of use were SF and Oakland. Kind of wild to read names like Willie Mays, Bobby Bonds, Willie McCovey, Willie Stargell (what's with all the Willies?), Pete Rose, Rollie Fingers, Reggie Jackson, and on and on and on.

And I love the cover on this. Wonderful.

Teams I have:
Minnesota Twins
St Louis Cardinals
Pittsburgh Pirates
Baltimore Orioles
Oakland A's
SF Giants
LA Dodgers
Cincinnati Reds
Chicago Cubs

I think this may be a grand slam.

I purchased this during the blackout and my first posting did not stick. $1.99 at the 72nd St GW.

B&W box, photocopied rules, single-color cards. Fantasy Flight it ain't, but it reminded me of my austere college days so I rescued it.

St. Vincent FINALLY opened in its new location today, so stopped in after work. It's bigger, it's brighter, it has the same selection of crap games and puzzles it had in the old one. Saw the Monopoly: Deluxe Edition and thought to snag it for the gold bits and wood houses, except they were already swiped out of the box. angry

Wandered about over to the books and saw this in the kids book section:


Wasn't quite sure what it was, but now that I've looked it up I might go back for it.

Next to it was this Battletech book. I couldn't leave it, it was only $.75. There must be someone who would like it, I just need to find them, right?? whistle

Walked back over to the toys and saw this. Yes, I have lots of poker chips and racks and cards. But this still had the contents in shrink. It was $3.99 and I'll probably put it up in the next no ship math trade or the auction at the convention. It's a nice set, decent chips, a rack, two decks of cards and a 48x30 felt mat.

The shelves at the new St. Vincent

Found an 800 count box overstuffed with Yu-Gi-Oh cards today for $4.

After an hour of sorting, looks like I mostly struck out. About a dozen total URs and SRs, about 30-40 Rares. About 40% of the rest are 1st Edition commons.

Oddly though, there were a few noteworthy counterfeits in it:

Graceful Dice and Skull Dice - the counterfeiting is laughable, and the cardbacks they adhered them to are cleanly peeling away.

These will be trashed

Also, the box contained two Fake cards that simply don't exist as real cards:

Yami Yugi Character Card
and Joey Wheeler Character Card

I've seen sales of these on ebay for $25 or so. But... who would ever buy them? I mean, as shiny and foily as they are (and they do look nice) -- they simply are not legal cards!


Which brings me to my question: If I were to list this lot for sale, and include the fake cards, and calling them out AS fake cards... would that disqualify my listing? (or, dare I say, would it enhance it?)
