Zack Greinke and Jose Altuve cards for 2015 Pro Season, HMB

The exciting 2016 big league baseball season lives again—on your tabletop! The 2016 Pro Season card set for HISTORY MAKER BASEBALL Big League Baseball Game puts YOU in the dugout as manager of your favorite big league team!

Undoubtedly, you'll remember the 2016 big league season as one for the ages, with an historic finish: league champions Cleveland and Chicago—two championship-starved clubs—meeting in one of the most dramatic Fall Classics EVER. Fans and experts agree, this series could have gone either way. But even before the series, the season was packed with amazing moments and memorable performances, like Big Papi's farewell tour and "Jake the Snake's" no-hitter (Chicago vs. Cincinnati, 4/22). Now, you can re-live this extraordinary baseball season again and again, certainly creating some memorable moments of your very own, with the 2016 Pro Season card set for HMB.

As fans of the game know, HMB gives you a second helping of baseball history, often providing new twists that can change the trajectory of a player or team's entire season! Will Colorado's hot-hitting second baseman clear .350 on your tabletop? (He hit .348 in real-life!) Baltimore's long-ball first baseman will chase the 50 home run mark—or, will something happen that causes him to go on a tear, where he approaches 60? Or, a slump that causes him to hover around 40? With HMB, it's woven into the game's fabric that a percentage of players will over-achieve or under-perform their actual historical performance—BUT, you never know WHICH players, until you sit down and start knocking out games! Chicago's championship season featured stellar pitching: will they show the same stuff on your tabletop? A trio of stars, including Boston's clever righty, Toronto's hard-throwing lefty and Washington's veteran fastball artist, each won 20 games in 2016. Can they duplicate that feat for YOU?

Of course, the majority of players will perform as you expect them to, barring injury or other circumstances. Houston's fleet second baseman will likely be among your top producers, L.A.'s slugging centerfielder will generate big batting numbers, while Detroit's pitching ace will prove just as valuable on your tabletop pitching mound as he was in real-life, and New York's fireballing closer will time and again shut 'em down!

Each one of these stars, along with hundreds of other players of varying abilities, are captured on card stock and ready to deliver big league fun and excitement on YOUR game table, whenever you want it, with the 2016 Pro Season cards for HISTORY MAKER BASEBALL Big League Baseball Game!

You get 720 players in the base set, each with his own card, twenty-four cards for each of the thirty big league teams. This collection of cards is more than enough for the average gamer's every-day tabletop entertainment! Want more depth so you can conduct a more intense project, maybe a full season play-through of your favorite team's schedule? We offer six additional players for each team, for FREE! (You can download them right now, if you want!)

PLUS, new for 2016, we've added delta and sigma ratings to the batter cards where applicable, bringing even more realism and detail to your HMB experience!

You also get suggested batting orders, a 2016 "Traded Player" guide so you can re-construct teams to match last year's stretch drive, and an "Instant Results" matrix that will allow you to determine winners of games with a single dice roll. It's the perfect tool to quick-play games associated with whatever project you've decided to do! (We use the Instant Results Matrix every summer to quick-play the last three weeks of baseball's regular season, to set the stage for our annual "Fall Classic Pre-PLAAY" every September!) Finally, your set will include cards for 32 of 2016's top big league umpires, ready to lay down the law on your game table!
