Editorial Reviews

A&E Home Entertainment proudly presents BASEBALL S GREATEST GAMES, an unprecedented collection of 10 exceptional and iconic games on DVD.

These rare and extraordinary television broadcasts from the Major League Baseball Film and Video Archive have earned their place in this gallery of greatness. Generations hold these classic games in equally high regard. They stand the test of time because of history-changing impact, dramatic brilliance, or heroic exploits.

For the first time ever, these transcendent games are presented in one collection, and many have been enhanced with synchronized radio play-by-play to deepen the experience with the flavor that can only be delivered by a home town broadcast team.

These are the games that forged Fall Classic heroes and created the most memorable moments of Major League Baseball. From walk-off World Series wins to mind-numbing comebacks, from personal excellence to legendary lineups, these are the unforgettable games that time and history have lifted to a place of honor and fame. These are BASEBALL S GREATEST GAMES.

BONUS FEATURES: An exclusive bonus disc featuring additional footage and interviews from all 10 games; Alternative audio track featuring local radio play-by-play

There is no denying that America has a fascination with lists. We are constantly striving to order things and categorize them resulting in much discussion, fun, and even argumentation. What is the best? What is your favorite? Listing things has become almost as much of a sport and pastime as the items that are being defined. For baseball lovers, A&E and Major League Baseball have joined forces to launch a new series of DVDs sure to provoke passion, disagreement, and fond remembrances. Called "Baseball's Greatest Games," the collaboration sets out with 10 initial choices and showcases the entire games as they were televised but cleaned up and with additional radio play-by-play. This set consists of ten discs (one game each) as well as a bonus disc of interviews and additional footage. Boxed up in this set, I'll list them here as an easy reference (also available seperately is a volume with Derek Jeter's 3000th hit) :

1960 World Series Game 7: Pittsburgh Pirates vs New York Yankees
1975 World Series Game 6: Boston Red Sox vs Cincinnati Reds
1979 Wrigley Field Slugfest: Philadelphia Phillies vs Chicago Cubs
1985 NLCS Game 5: St. Louis Cardinals vs Los Angeles Dodgers
1986 World Series Game 6: New York Mets vs Boston Red Sox
1991 World Series Game 7: Minnesota Twins vs Atlanta Braves
1992 NLCS Game 7: Pittsburgh Pirates vs Atlanta Braves
1993 World Series Game 6: Toronto Blue Jays vs Philadelphia Phillies
2003 ALCS Game 7: Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees
2004 ALCS Game 4: Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees

The three volumes that I have sampled so far are the '86 Mets vs Red Sox, '04 Red Sox vs Yankees, and '91 Twins vs Braves.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great set for new buyers. August 25, 2011
This would be a great set except that 6 of the 10 games have already been released as part of other WS and Great Games box sets.

Only the 79 Cubs game, 85 NLCS, 92 NLCS and 93 WS games are new. MLB has two games from the 1952 World Series in their archives. They could have put those games in this set instead of games that have already been released.

If you have collected the past MLB sets you would be better off buying these 4 games seperatly as they are also going to be sold that way.

3.0 out of 5 stars mostly reruns of games already put out on dvd August 30, 2011
In addition to the 6 games mentioned by another reviewer that already exist on dvd, the 1985 game also exists on dvd (the greatest games of busch stadium). therefore, only 3 games in this set are new.

I bought this as a gift for my dad. He is a baseball guru. The best part of this, to him, was the archival footage. He already knew all the facts and trivia. Like I said, he's a baseball guru.

I am a baseball coach at a Junior College and we watch one of these games in the dorms every Friday night and the guys are really enjoying it and I am enjoying the opportunity to teach them about the game that we love. I would love to see a second addition of this set with more classic games. The guys are itching to watch 1988 WS GM1, 2001 WS GM&7 and others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Box Set for any Baseball Fan
As a fairly new convert to the Joys of Baseball (being from the UK) I found this the ideal way to get a feel for the history of the game. If you like Baseball you will like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great memories
The best 10 games of the history. Maybe they had left 3 or four important games but which you let out of those games? Maybe the Ozzie's shot in 1985 or the 1979 Wrigley slugfest. Read more

I haven't heard anything official. However, years back MLB had a collection of VHS format Greatest Games Series. My guess is a lot of them will be released on dvd. The VHS collection included '78 Red Sox-Yankee Al East Playoff, Nolan Ryan's 7th No hitter, Joe Carter's walk off in '93 series, '91... Read More
