A set of 108 unique baseball managers printed on 54 cards.
This set of custom manager cards was designed by Kurt Bergland for use with the Pine Tar Baseball tabletop game (available separately).
Note: Any previous version and season set will work with the new managerial cards.
The manager set has two managers per card printed front and back. It includes 108 unique managers in all, printed on 54 cards. Cards are poker sized. (2.5 x 3.5") They are on are heavy card stock and come with rounded corners. Cards are printed in full color, front and back.
Each pro team will have a minimum of four options for their manager. Many teams will have between 6-8 or more managers to choose from. Managers can appear on any team they managed in real life. Some managers managed for up to 6 different teams. There will be a few Negro League managers as well.
Managers are rated for how they affect aspects of their team's play via decision making. They are given limits for IBB's (intentional base on balls), MIP (maximum innings pitched), Hit and Runs, and Stolen Base points. In addition, every manager has a special bonus/penalty. The idea is that you can select one of the managers for the Pine Tar team you play. The traits highlight certain tendencies, strengths or weaknesses that a manager had. You can give all your teams a unique flavor this way.
