Inside Sports, March 1981: issue w/Daniel Okrent article

Postby Bwanna » Wed Aug 15, 2007 1:17 pm

As of today, I'm the proud owner of the March, 1981 issue of "Inside Sports". It contains the article by Dan Okrent, which was (arguably) one of the very first references to a fantasy baseball league (and probably any fantasy sport):

The article is entitled "The Year George Foster Wasn't Worth $36".

Does anyone know if the text of this article is available anywhere online?

I was wondering the same thing. Is the article out there somewhere?

Don't think so. I've actually scanned the article, and I'll post it when I can remember where I put it.
