Current Strat-O-Matic Inventory

The following is a list of all Strat-O-Matic season card sets currently in stock (not including special releases like the Negro League set, Hall of Fame 2000, and Baseball Heroes). I’ve included tables sorted by season as well as sorted by release date.

The point of this list is twofold: first, to give you a handy list of what seasons are still available, and secondly, to give you an idea of which seasons might be close to selling out.

Presumably, the earlier the initial release of a particular season, the more likely it is that the inventory of that season is dwindling. I’m dubious about this assumption for certain seasons, however. For instance, I find it unlikely that an especially popular season such as 1927 and/or 1964 – which were originally printed nearly 24 and 18 years ago, respectively – haven’t been reprinted at least once in that time. But until someone from the gameco confirms one way or the other, we just don’t know.

The secrecy of the quantity of supply of any given season is no doubt a deliberate tactic to keep squeezing demand from the company’s customer base.

  1. Thank you for posting this information!

    This is a topic that I enjoy speculating about as I would eventually like to collect all of the reprint seasons (I only have eight currently).

    My collection includes 1941, 1955, 1960, 1961 (older version), 1964, 1969, 1971, 1977. I owned 1956 and 1970 at one point but they have been M.I.A. for some time (damn).

    SOM’s out-of-print seasons would be: 1930, 1950, 1956, 1962, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1975, 1978? Did I miss any?

    What’s your best guess as to the next season to go out of print? 1959, perhaps? I noticed that SOM ran a 48% off sale on 1948 about six weeks ago… Maybe an attempt to clear that one out? Hard to know…

  2. Hey there! Thanks for reading and for the comment. Actually, there are a lot of seasons that Strat has offered at one time that are currently out of print. The following list is my best approximation of the list of out of print seasons, though I can’t guarantee it’s 100% correct. Every one of these seasons have been offered with at least Advanced features. Everything since 1986 has been offered with Super-Advanced features.

    1930
    1950
    1956
    1962
    1968
    1969
    1970
    1972
    1973 (though will be re-released as Super Advanced this year)
    1974
    1975
    1976
    1978
    1979
    1980
    1981
    1982
    1983
    1984
    1985
    1986
    1987
    1988
    1989

  3. Any word on the next season they are going to produce or reprint?

  4. Hi Lawrence – I wish I knew. There has been plenty of discussion about it on various forums. There was a hint by Steve Barkan (chief card creator for Strat-O-Matic for many years). In a post on the Strat Fan Forum on Feb 18, 2014, he wrote:

    There is a season that is ready to go, that was done for the first time. There is another “first time” season that is partially completed and three other “re-done from advanced to super advanced” seasons that are partially complete. I have no idea, or input as far as, which seasons will be released in 2015.”

  5. Looking for complete sets for baseball 1984 to 1989

  7. I love Strat-O-Matic and have been playing and collecting since 1978. I have full season sets from 1973 thru 1986 except for 1972 AL, 1974 AL, and 1984. I also have 1970 AL with additional players and some 1971 teams. I have just noticed that recently single cards are being sold for league and franchise play. That’s interesting, BUT what do you do with the rest of the team set?? Thanks
