Welcome to Super70s.com!
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!
