What is the best year to start in for a Historical Sim?

I am interested in starting a historical simulation from pre-1900 MLB, what is the best year to start in that doesn't require me to do a lot of hands on work to fix the league. I've seen 1884 bring people trouble and other years as well. please help

I don't have the answers but I'm pretty sure that the people who do will be better able to give you solid intel if you provide a little more detail on the kind of league you want. Stuff such as minors and transactions and league evolution and debut (actual or random). Stuff like that.

1871 will work depending on how you play. If you play with amateur draft each you you may have to manually move some players around to make sure each team has enough players. If a team does not have enough players, the game will let you know. Back in those days I think teams had 12 or 13 players. In 1903 in my league the average team had about 22 players. Had to make sure I played with injuries off. Around 1908 my teams had 25 players with 2 or 3 reserves.

I like starting in 1901 so that I know how many years have gone by in the save just by the year.

I am now also completely addicted to random-debut sims. I've been doing a number of them and stopping them to play whenever John Tudor gets introduced as a rookie.
