All-Star Replay was Avalon Hill’s in-house magazine that covered all AH sports titles, which included the Statis-Pro Baseball, Basketball, and Football games, Title Bout, Baseball and Football Strategy, Speed Circuit, the horse racing sim Win, Place, and Show, among others.

The magazine was produced (mostly) quarterly, and famously included many free add-ons to games. For example, Volume 3, number 2 includes Statis-Pro cards for two Japanese baseball teams: 1978 Tokyo Yomiuri Giants and 1978 Yokohama Taiyo Whales.

Other add-ons include tracks for Speed Circuit, solitaire charts for many of their games, and strategies for winning head-to-head matches with others. The magazine boasted statistical analysis of cards, games, and replays. In those dark pre-internet days, it was one of the few sources of tabletop-sports news and analysis.

Now it’s all available to you for free with a couple of mouse-clicks.

  1. I had only heard of this magazine and had never seen it (I played – and have re-acquired – a couple of AH titles), and am really looking forward to checking these out! Thanks to whoever did all this!

  2. I have spent a lot of time looking at these since it was linked here. I’ve printed a lot of that stuff as well.
