'27 sold out

I just read this at another site.

The 1927 season card set has sold out.

I'm honestly surprised it stayed available for 27 years

Wasn't '27 their first SADV past season re-creation? If so, maybe they had a bigger production run than following re-created seasons.

 Yes and the only retro with the old card patterns and SADV. It shares its card look with 1988 & 89. Starting with the 1990 season the card patterns were changed.

With the "retirement" of the 1927 card set, I was curious to figure out how many other "re-created" (i.e. seasons that aren't produced the year immediately following) have been sold out. From what I can tell all of the ADV re-created seasons are gone (the last ADV was 1962 produced in 1989). SADV 1971 sold out early this year. Here is what I have compiled as a list of unavailable re-created sets.

1927 SADV
1930  ADV
1950  ADV
1956  ADV
1961* ADV
1962  ADV
1968  ADV
1969* ADV
1970  ADV
1971 SADV
1975 SADV
1978 SADV

     * 1961 and 1969 originally had ADV re-created sets and have been replaced by SADV versions(still available).


EDIT NOTE: I replaced 1977 SADV with 1978 SADV. 1977 is still available from SOM. I missed 1978 (see below).

 I was just looking at the Strat Baseball Features List that you had posted a while back and noticed that 1978 was listed as SADV. But I have also been cross referencing sets with the SOM BP & weather effects site. The 1978 season is not listed as having a BP/Weather chart. Looks like SOM missed posting that chart. 

 But it is interesting to see that the 70's really sold well. SADV: 71, 75 & 78 - all sold out. 1927 is the only other SADV set to sell out and as you noted that took 27 years. Probably why SOM is having quite a few sales lately. Wouldn't be surprised if SOM had the buy 2 get 1 free sale again.  Or better yet, buy 2 get 2 free - wishful thinking.
