    Perfect! I have not been this excited about a past season release in several years! I can’t wait to play so I will start by researching the season now.

  2. David says:

    Awesome news!

  3. jessica says:

    How about 1974 or 1976 next time?

  4. BYRONFULK says:

    I have wanted this set in super advanced for a long time. Thank you!

  5. jimbo7777777 says:

    Excellent choice! Can’t wait to get it! πŸ™‚

  6. Richard says:

    Great news, Excellent Yankee, Giants, and Dodgers Teams,Hopefully the 1975 and 76 seasons will follow soon,

  7. Andrew Padaetz says:

    Not to mention the horrid 40-120 expansion Mets that prompted Casey Stengel to wonder β€œcan’t anybody here play this game?”


    The original 1962 set was the first year that I played SOM in 1963. The re-creation will be a must buy for me…… will Christmas in February, I cannot wait.

  9. efsease2 says:

    62 was a great season; Yanks, Giants, Dodgers,, Mets and many future HOF players. Probably the last strong Mantle-led Yankee team. Good choice SOM! I will buy this set when available.

  10. Brad says:

    It is great news, but someone at SOM please realize one set/ year isn’t enough, many C&D players will die before they get to play seasons they want to play

  11. Earl Christensen says:

    I thought we were getting 1970? Disappointed to me?

  12. joemaestro612 says:

    Great Choice, Looking forward to it.

  13. sportcity says:

    When can we expect to see some never created seasons?
    It would be great to see the first season from 1901.

  14. John J says:

    Now only 1956 needs to be updated.
    Great News!

  15. Michael says:

    I hope when the season of 1962 gets printed they will also be on the original card stock love the old card stock even if we have to pay a little more for it

  16. Michael says:

    And one more thing- when printing 1962 also reprint 1938 and 1927


    Great choice!!!Hopefully,next will be 1952 and 1956-the only missing Mickey Mantle years in super advanced!!!

  18. butch.haber says:

    I Would Like To See More Old Timer Seasons Like 1915, Or 1918 From The Deadball Era, And The 1932 Season, Where Babe Called His Shot In The World Series!!

  19. Tribeman says:

    Love the ’62 season. Now let’s get ’72! Please?

  20. jmiller72 says:

    I can not wait for this season to come out. For future years, I would love to see 1903 get made. That was the first year of the modern World Series.

  21. Tom Vartanian says:

    I’ve got every 1960s season except 62. Thank you for letting me complete the decade. It’s a season I’ve been waiting for for a long time!

  22. naplesphil says:

    Tremendous news! Been playing Strat since since 1964. Mays, Mantle, Aaron, F. Robinson, Kaline, where at the top of there game. All had great years. Thank you.

  23. Norm Crosby says:

    Great season. Would love to see some 1970s seasons issued next: β€˜72, β€˜76, β€˜79, and please re-print/re-issue β€˜75 and β€˜78. The β€˜70s are when a lot of older Strat fans first got into the game, and I’m certain these would be big sellers. We aren’t getting any younger out here : ). Looking forward to the new seasons.
