   In the past I have seen some very detailed pages of strat-o-matic Leagues as well as individual Strat-O-Matic individual baseball teams.

   WhatIfSports has made some nice improvements over the years enabling leagues to have much easier means for keeping all time league records.

  A Progressive League that has made good use of these features is  a league playing from 1941 - 1969, The Just4Me Progressive League.

  I believe Seaphil got it up and running. crustydoc is running it now. The below information is from their impressive League Records thread in the League's Private Forum.

  Seaphil started WhatIfSports First Progressive with the Centennial League , run for many years by ceez, as well as my first Progressive, The Big League, run by sjstapleton for a long time now.

    One of the things I had wanted to do was have a baseball card team set of my WhatIfSports Progressive Teams, people can use photo editing to make some very realistic Card Company styled baseball cards.
 
   Some autograph collectors send vintage baseball cards to former players hoping they will autograph the cards and return them to the collector.

   I recently came across a blog where a collector has made non distributed versions of baseball cards, similar in style, but not Card Company issued Trading Cards

   Some of the former players have especially enjoyed receiving copies of their versions of these " custom " cards.

   Players have occasionally asked for more cards to share with family, and even wanted to know if additional cards could be produced.

  Below is a link and some examples with Jay Johnstone.

  Found this blog while doing research for a 1978 Progressive League.

  Jay Johnstone is a much traveled player from this era, and a current member of my Oakland Team's roster.


      Bobw's Custom Baseball Cards

         " I've been collecting baseball images for many years and decided to create some baseball cards and send them through the mail to the players pictured for their autographs. I also make cards for collectors.
"









Jay Johnstone

I had gotten Jay Johnstone back two months ago and in a note he asked if I could make a Cubs and Dodgers card for him. I made those two up and added a Phillies and another Angels card using a nice B&W photo of him making contact in the batting cage.


Below are some Topps regular issue cards from Johnstone's playing career.  1967 Topps,  1969 Topps,
                                                                                                                         1971 Topps,  1968 Topps

xfl outlaw is the one responsible for the pictures. I believe he used a photo editor such as Photo Shop.

http://www.xfloutlaw.blogspot.com/
This was part of my introduction to WhatifSports. xfl_outlaw had the Senators and provided a lot of color to our Big League Progressive.
He had a blog since it isn't always easy to post photos in the threads.
This was from the opening season of the Big League, started by seaphil, and run by rls1 for many seasons now. I had the Chicago Cubs and we had some very interesting ideas applied for us combining the goals of having teams similar to the Real Life 1969 Expansion season, as well as how to go forward as a Progressive League.

Below xfl_outlaw edited a Washington Cap on Oscar Gamble in the picture on the . On the right is a Topps 1976 baseball Card with an airbrushed Yankees Cap.
What's really scary is the fact that it took 5 minutes to edit Oscar's card to reflect his new home with the Senators - and it looks 1000x better than his actual '76 Topps card!

"Stallone is a great fit for our team concept," stated Kienholz, "Look at the potential his brother has... I mean some of what Sly has will rub off on him, won't it?"

Frank Stallone was very excited about his teams chances for the upcoming season. "Ken Brett, Tommy Aaron, and Billy Conigliaro are the building blocks of a dynasty. If they're half as good as their brothers' then we're sure to be half as good as everyone else in the league."

Stallone also expressed confidence in the Brewers farm system, which includes highly touted prospects Ozzie Canseco, Mike Maddux, and Rudolph "The Red Nosed Unit" Johnson.

 Reliving the Expansion Draft, this time prior to the 1970 season going from a 16 Team League to a 20 Team League.

Commissioner crustydoc's  Progressive considered  expanding prior to the 1969 Progressive Season.

  Agreeing on the method wasn't so easy and some owners talked about leaving. 

   But eventually they came to a consensus and they allowed for more time for preparation by pushing back the Expansion for one Sim Season.
 
  So they are now adding 4 1970 Expansion Teams as the 1969 Regular season is winding down.

   I have the Minnesota expansion team that is set to be part of the 5 team American League West.
 


  crustydoc's post outlining the League's plans  - 

We will have a separate expansion draft, to be held as soon as possible after game #120 of the 1969 season. My hope is that we can complete it, once it gets started, within a week’s time and then move on to the 1970 rookie draft.
 
Each existing owner will freeze 4 players.  The expansion owners will draft for 4 rounds, in snake order (1-2-3-4-4-3-2-1), from the remaining pool.  The expansion draft order will be selected randomly. No existing owner will be permitted to lose more than one player.
 
This process is repeated five times. At the end of it, each expansion owner would ostensibly have four of the 5th most valuable players from existing teams in the league, four of the 10th most valuable, and so on. Every owner in the league would own the rights to 20 players, except those returning owners who have retiring players.
 
At the conclusion of the expansion draft, each of the 20 teams would post a keeper list. Expansion teams may choose not to retain all their selections from the expansion draft.  I would expect significant trading activity at this point.
 
Draft order for the 1970 rookie draft will be unique. The expansion teams will own picks 1-4 in the first round, 9-12 in the second round, 17-20 in the third round, 1-4 in the fourth round, and so on.  Their draft order will be reversed from the expansion draft. Returning teams would draft in their regular order, but in different slots (5-20 in the first round, 1-8, 13-20 in the second, 1-16 in the third, 5-20 in the fourth, and so on).
 
I will offer existing owners the opportunity to give up their teams and become an expansion owner.
 
We will follow Alternate WIS Format F --- essentially what we have now, but adding one team to each division.

We will keep a salary cap.  We are currently at $90 million, and only one or two of us in any given season get anywhere near it.  When we go to 20 teams, our cap will drop to $85 million. 

When we go to 20 teams, we will return to below-average sim-generated AAA players.

Assuming we can find four more good owners --- and I am sure that we can, given enough time --- my only concern is making the playing field as level as I can. I don’t want to decimate existing teams, and I want to give new teams a chance to compete quickly.  Balance is the key.

I hope everyone will stay with us.  If you decide not to, I would appreciate your letting me know immediately after the 1969 draft.
