ATLANTA (CNNSI.com) -- Willie Stargell was supposedly way past his prime when he powered the Pittsburgh Pirates to their second World Series title of the 1970s.
But it was a true measure of the man that Stargell probably isn't remembered for that Series win -- or the other one in 1971, again against the Orioles -- as much as he is for his leadership and his demeanor.
He led the league in homers twice (with 48 in 1971 and 44 in 1973) and was among the league's Top 10 home run hitters 10 times.

The first night game in Series history brought out the biggest baseball crowd (51,378) ever in Pittsburgh as well as an estimated 61 million home TV viewers to their sets.

 A 7-Game World Series Is Unusually Common
From 1945 to 1971, more than half of the World Series had gone seven games, and he wrote about this discovery in a paper in the journal Science.
The seven-game effect is absent from the first 44 four-of-seven-game World Series, and only 36 percent of the World Series since 1973 have gone the distance — higher than expected, but not significantly so.
Include the seven-game league championship series — where six-game series are more common than seven-game series — and the statistical anomaly vanishes, with the distribution of series lengths fitting the simple statistical calculation quite well.

The two sets are easy to distinguish, as they sport different cartoons on the front, and different text color on the back (not to mention that the 1904 series is missing from the '70 set).
I believe there was an update set (maybe more than one) produced to the 1971 World Series set.
