Product Description

The BALTIMORE ORIOLES LEGENDS: CAL RIPKEN, JR. COLLECTOR’S EDITION is a tribute to Ripken’s on-field success, from his six-hit game and the power of his three-homerun stunner, to postseason performances, All-Star Game accolades, and the night he overtook the all-time consecutive games played streak. It was this crowning achievement that lifted Cal Ripken, Jr. above the tens of thousands of men who’ve played in Major League Baseball--in all, his string of "days on the job" spanned an amazing 2,632 games played across 16 baseball seasons. Each DVD contains the complete, digitally preserved game broadcast, intensified by SleeveStats, the perfect companion to the ultimate Baltimore Orioles DVD experience, including official stats, trivia, and game summaries right on each DVD cover. In addition, the collection features a 60-minute documentary, "Cal Ripken, Jr. The Iron Man’s Legendary Career" chronicling Ripken’s magnificent 21-year career.

Baltimore Orioles Legends: Cal Ripken Jr. Collector's Edition captures one of the most electrifying moments in modern television: Ripken's breaking of one of sport's most unbreakable records, Lou Gehrig's streak of 2130 consecutive games played. The irony is that the record itself is not that exciting--just carrying your lunch pail to work every day--and barring some bizarre weather event or freak injury, everyone knew it was going to happen at Camden Yards on September 6, 1996, and the game unfolded pretty normally, other than guests such as Earl Weaver arriving in the broadcast booth to ramble about Ripken. But as soon as the game became official and Ripken grew tired of basking in the applause, he took an impromptu victory lap around the stadium slapping hands with the fans, and the ESPN broadcast crew had the rare insight to stay silent and let the moment speak for itself.

But Ripken didn't stop at 2131, and neither does this six-disc set. It has four other complete and significant games, including a 1996 three-homer game vs. Seattle, game 1 of the 1996 ALDS against Cleveland, a six-for-six performance against the Braves in 1999, and the 2001 All-Star Game in which he was voted the MVP (and starting AL shortstop Alex Rodriguez playfully pushed him back to his original position to start the game). On the last disc is a one-hour documentary from 2001, The Iron Man's Legendary Career, recapping his career (early quote: "I want to get used to playing every day") with interviews by Ripken, Earl Weaver, Fred Lynn, and peer shortstops Alex Rodriguez, Omar Vizquel, Derek Jeter, and Nomar Garciaparra. More interviews and game clips round out the package for one of the most-respected and classiest figures in sports history. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Ripken May 19, 2008
By D. jean
Overall a solid set with some interesting games from the 90's. The only thing I wish they had done with this is they could've put in games such as the game he got his 3000th hit, 400th home run, the 1991 All-Star game in which he was MVP, or even game 5 of 1983 World Series in the Orioles victory over Philly.

I can't believe nobody has reviewed an old southern californian will take the lead for the millions of baseball fans and those in Baltimore and let rip.

This set has flab..whenever you have complete games that aren't world series games there are things you don't want to watch over and the DVDs of Cal's multi-hit affairs aren't something I will revisit too often. But..there are so many classic moments that make this a MUST for any true baseball fan.

The complete game where he eclipsed Lou Gehrig is wonderful and reminds me how I felt at the time and how Cal almost singlehandedly returned baseball back to prominence after the horrible strike. The All star game is also terrific fun and the bonus disc with an hour documentary on Cal and multiple highlight clips from 3,000th hit to 400th homer etc etc is very cool.

If I had a son I'd want him to watch this to understand what baseball is really about and what class and work ethic and grace are...

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special, and who picked these games? October 14, 2008
Well, now I have to say that almost all of these MLB/A&E DVD sets are at least very good. Sure, there's the 2131 game. But other than that, there isn't much worth watching more than once. Maybe the three home-run game and the documentary. Unless you're a Cal fan or really want to see the record-breaking game, take a pass.

5.0 out of 5 stars Orioles Iron Man is a Grand Slam September 21, 2014
Verified Purchase
Love this, some great games if you're a fan of the Iron Man, or indeed of the Orioles of the 90's. Well worth the watch. Documentary was also a great accompaniment to the games and informative. My only complaint is that there aren't more sets like this. Of Cal, All Star games from the past (Would LOVE to see the 93 one again. Randy Johnson vs John Kruk!) and many many more.
