Nice guy.  Have some blogs.  Do baseball research.

baseball-reference has a table indicating missing play-by-play data.

Here's the link:

http://www.baseball-reference.com/about/coverage.shtml

It was not easy to find but it's there.  Once you get to the page cruise down more than half way to:

"Play-by-Play Accounts and Box Score accounts"

Play-by-Play for all games: 1974-2012

Play-by-Play for no games: beginning of time through 1944

Games:
Year, PBP, no PBP, "percent" PBP
1973194030.9985
1972185720.9989
1971192990.9954

As indicated in the previous two posts I learned this the hard way.
