Default Looking For 13 Missing Episodes of Name Of The Game (1968-1971)

As fans of the 1968-1971 90 minute anthology series Name Of The Game
starring Gene Barry, Robert Stack, and Tony Franciosa may know, the 76
episodes of that series have not been officially released on DVD. There
are in existence several collectors sets (all four of which I have btw)
which contain approximately 53 episodes of NOTG from assorted past
TV broadcasts and also 80's syndication film prints/VHS transfers in
various conditions ranging from watchable to barely watchable.
In recent months I've added a few more to that total from collectors
increasing the total to 58 with a possibility of adding 5 or 6 more
which would make the total 63 or 64. At present there are no plans
for an official DVD release as the show has been deemed as having
a limited audience (those who originally watched it) and therefore
would receive low sales (they don't want to spend the money that
it would take for a proper remastering/restoration of their film prints
which are still safe in the studio vaults contrary to reports they might
have been destroyed in the 2008 fire that made national news then).
enough by its original owners who are no longer interested in the
older TV shows of this nature as they are supposedly "not selling".
What I have found is under the category of "better than nothing".

That having been said, I am looking for the following missing and
not aired on TV episodes of Name Of The Name, which include:

Season 2-
# 27 Lady On The Rocks
# 30 The Emissary
# 36 The Civilized Men
# 37 High Card
# 51 One Of The Girls In Research

Need upgrades of:
Season 2-
# 35 The Prisoner Within (Full Screen version, complete)
# 38 The Power (mine is poor quality, barely watchable)

Season 3-
# 56 Battle At Gannon's Bridge (complete version)
# 57 The Enemy Before Us
# 62 I Love You, Billy Baker Part 1
# 63 I Love You, Billy Baker Part 2
# 65 Aquarius Descending
# 67 A Sister From Napoli (Peter Falk)
# 69 The Man Who Killed A Ghost (Robert Wagner)
# 70 Seek And Destroy

Need upgrade-
Season 3-
# 72 The Savage Eye (complete version) (mine is missing the opening scene with the episode title, guest star and producer-director-writer credits)

Trivia: I Love You, Billy Baker was Tony Franciosa's last episode. He was fired from the series and replaced by guest stars for the rest of Season 3.

I am hopefully receiving 3 previously missing episodes from Season 1 that will give me the entire first season of the series (which was supposed to be released in 2014 on DVD but cancelled for "clearance issues" involving background music rights ownership; either that or they couldn't find
them all, the latter of which obviously isn't true because a reliable
source has confirmed the studio still has all 76 episodes film prints).
Again, better than nothing.

Willing to trade for these if anyone has them. Thanks in advance.
