This tread will highlight the great moments in my Coffee Table Baseball replays and projects.

Starting my Christmas vacation with a 1911 Independence Day game featuring 2 Hall of Famers facing each other "3-Finger" Brown vs. Pete Alexander. An early Christmas present for me.

My very understanding and wonderful wife got me the 1920 card set for Christmas. I had a great time looking through all the cards this morning - really looking forward to playing with that Ruth card. Having only had experience with the 1911 set, the home runs on Ruth's card certainly jump out.

Also was fortunate to receive a Christy Mathewson biography and Bill James' Historical Abstract.

 That's great glewis!  Yeah, That 1920 Bambino card is really something.  It seems like it's either a walk or homerun every at-bat.  I even think it's a better slugging card than his 1927 60 HR one.

Also, the 1920 chicago "scandal" team are pretty dynamic too.  Last team before 1971 to have four starters with 20 wins.

Merry Christmas!

A cool set.  The Pete Alexander card won my pitchers' Triple Crown.

I've really had the chance to use 1920. Its a pretty interesting season as baseball transitioned out of the deadball era.

Played a 14 inning game between the Phillies and the Reds today. That's first time I've had to go to a second sheet (I use the Strat Form B, which only goes to 12), so it becomes the longest game played in the short history of the CTB.

It got me to wondering, most of you have rolled many more games than I have. What is the longest game you've ever rolled?

Wow! 30 innings, I can't even imagine. I was starting to worry about my pitching on both teams. It didn't help that I had a bean ball brawl that resulted in 5 ejections (including 3 Philly pitchers).

 14 innings...1911...C'Mon Man!

You could easily use a guy for 5 innings in relief or grab an off day starter, tell him to put away his flask, and get out there and pitch!

N/O, you take all the fun out of life!  Nonetheless, some good advice on using the pitching staffs, although I feel glewis' pain.

Nac, that's an amazing three games in one and more scenario.  Felt bad for some of those batters who had an 0'fer.
