Vintage Fridays: Elrod Hendricks, 1969 Milton Bradley #NNO
here. As the linked page explains, this was a more basic game than APBA or Strat-o-Matic. There were only 11 possible outcomes on each card, to be determined by a roll of the dice. There were 15 O's in the team set, and interestingly enough Mark Belanger (145 games played in 1968) and Jim Palmer (missed the entire season due to injury) were not among them. I'll also note that each of the five cards currently in my possession (in addition to Elrod Hendricks' smiling face, the others are Clay Dalrymple, Andy Etchebarren, Jim Hardin, and Dave Leonhard) features one home run result. Did anyone ever play this game (or the 1970 version) as a kid?
