Description: Pick a yearly Franchise team that SOM has made available: the 1939 Yankees, the 1906 Cubs, etc. See here for a list of 24 such teams: http://365.strat-o-matic.com/league/428826. The main requirement of this league is that you have to carry during the whole season at minimum 18 players who were members of such team. To yield teams with equal competitiveness, all teams have also access to the Negro League players pool. This way, teams with payrolls around 60M-70M will be able to add 3-4 9M-10M Negro League players and compete with the powerhouses around 85M-90M. You also have access to all players paid 1M or less. Also, teams will have access to any card that SOM has made available as long as the card belongs to the given franchise. For example, the 1973 As will have access to the monster Reggie Jackson 1969 As card, but they will not have access to the two Yankees card of Reggie. By the same rule, teams have access to players that were official members of the team in the chosen year and have a Strat card for the same franchise. For example, the 1986 Mets team have access to the 1985 Gary Carter card even though he has no card for 1986 since he was a member of that squad, but the 1986 Mets don't have access to the Carter's Expos cards. Official reference for this rule will be baseball-reference.com. To help pre-1920 teams fulfill the "3 only relievers" rule, pitchers who have a "only" reliever card (not a sp/rp) for any "deadball" year of the franchise will be considered potential official members of the given team. So 1916 Gene Prickard can be included in the roster requirement of 18 players for the 1906 Cubs. If a team doesn't have access to 18 players because some players were legitimately picked up by other teams, they will have a free access to any player within the franchise. Stadiums are wide open. DH rule. Teams will be picked up on a first come first served basis, but please allow a 10-year span when picking a franchise already taken--if the 1970 Orioles are picked up, don't take the 1966 Orioles. Please put the year and the franchise in your team's name.
