I guess Strat has cleared all of it's pre-orders. I ordered my 2016 and 1949 sets yesterday(2/21) just before noon. I didn't pay for any expedited shipping, and when I got home at 7pm after dinner with the wife and kids, there was the box from Glen Head on the porch.

Christmas in February! smile

Got my '49 cards late today.

My 1950 rolling has stopped. As soon as I get my prep work done, I'll roll '49, then go back up where I left off with '50.

I'm curious to know if anyone here has found any errors in the '49 set...

 How far did you get into 1950?

Twenty-four games, each team.  One more four-game series to the mid-point.

I slowed up a bit in the last few weeks, knowing I didn't want to be halfway through a series when the new cards arrived.  That also served as a nice little break.

I've also been working on the transaction data, and going through players' game log data, to determine if there are any large gaps (8-10, or more, games missed, which would possibly indicate an injury).

I will take that data and sideline the player during the corresponding part of my replay.  It helps me with making sure players are held closer to their real-life appearances, without being able to cherry-pick when I want to use them.  And these events frequently initiate chain reaction moves (trades, call-ups), as teams adjust to losing a player.

The '49 season has the obvious example of Joe DiMaggio, who will sit out the first 24 games of my campaign (65 games, IRL).  That brings him back at just the right moment (allowing, of course, for the fact that my replay is only 56 games).

It's interesting to note that New York actually had a better record before DiMaggio was activated, than the remainder of the campaign.  New York led the A.L. race with a 41-24 (.631) record, which placed them 4.5 games in front of Philadelphia.  Boston was five games off the pace.

The Yankees celebrated Joe's return by winning three straight at Fenway, knocking Boston to eight games back.

From July 1st forward, Boston had the best record in baseball, 61-27, a sizzling .693 winning percentage.  New York was 53-33 (.616).

But the Yankees managed to regroup at the end and pound out a pair of wins in a season-ending two-game series against the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium.

It is an inexact science, of course, and I'll have to fudge a bit at the end, where DiMaggio was out for another two weeks as the season was winding down.  He came back to play the last two games against Boston.

I'll sit him down again at the appropriate moment, then bring him back for the final game.  It's not perfect, of course.

 I wouldn't know. Other than the HOFers I don't know much if anything about the players. I haven't heard of there being any as of yet.
