NOTES:

  From the day that Babe Ruth first slipped on his Yankee pinstripes, baseball fans around the world have either loved the Yankees or hated them with a passion. This 1960's board game capitalized on those emotions as you tried to "Challenge the Yankees". This game has become one of the most popular post-war baseball games in the hobby- and for good reason- it has everything. The cover of the box has a magnificent drawing of the "old" Yankee Stadium. It also has cameo drawings of three of their stars - Mickey Mantle, Tom tresh and Elston Howard. 

The contents are loaded too. It comes with the game board, score board, strategy & result cards and of course, 50 picture playing cards. The first set, printed in 1964, uses 1963 stats; the second, printed in 1965, uses stats for 1964. There are 25 Yankee cards including Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Yogi Berra and Whitey Ford. The challenger cards include some of the all-time greats like Hank Aaron, Al Kailne, Eddie Mathews and Juam Marichal. One player takes the Yankees, and the other takes a collection of Major League All Star players. Die rolls indexed on each batter determine the result of a pitch; special card draws add further random behavior to fly balls, ground balls, and base hits of varying types.
