Welcome to the Super70s family of websites: There is Super70s.com, which covers the 1970s. There is Awesome80s.com, which covers the 1980s. And there is Virtual90s.com, which will cover the 1990s starting in late summer of 2008. The fourth site is BaseballChronology which covers the history of baseball from the 1840s to the present. Do you see the set of colored boxes on the right labeled 70s, 80s, 90s, and BC? These are at the top of every page and allow you to quickly switch between all four sites!

Have you checked out our new discussion forums? Now you can discuss anything related to the Super70s, Awesome80s, or Virtual90s. There are literally thousands of your messages dating back to the last century already there and I am copying over more every day. I think you will agree that this is a much better way to allow you to share your memories with others and read others comments as well.

There are over 400,000 pages combined on these sites, and we're hardly going to stop there! We constantly add new information, so come back soon! (Don't forget to add Awesome80s.com to your favorites, so you can find us again. You can also make Awesome80s.com your home page.)
