OPS+ top "ten" seasons since 1903.

I had intended to break the home/road splits into more detail but then I read that they do not include ball park factor, which makes me wonder whether they have any value over simple OPS.

sOPS+ home plus sOPS+ road does NOT add up to overall OPS+. So what the heck? Below are three sets, one for each mentioned above.
