Product Description

The amazing comeback victory over the New York Yankees and World Series sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals requires an equally incredible collection of memories. This unprecedented 12-DVD Collector’s Edition preserves all of the remarkable drama for your viewing now and forever.


For Red Sox Nation, this boxed set may be a book out of their own personal bible: the tale of their deliverance from decades of wandering through baseball's metaphorical desert. Forget the Pharaohs--the curse of the Bambino had been enough to keep Red Sox fans dying of thirst while their nemeses, the New York Yankees, seemed to waltz right into the Promised Land again and again. And then, finally, after 86 years, the Red Sox are champions, and here's their chronicle: The Boston Red Sox 2004 World Series Collector's Edition DVD boxed set, the first collection of complete, unedited MLB games on DVD.

For the devoted fan, this is your holy grail: all seven games of the incredible American League Championship Series against the Yankees, and the four World Series games against the St. Louis Cardinals. The material is fresh out of the broadcast booth: it's pure footage of the full games, unedited, and complete (minus the commercials), so you don't miss a single pitch. Forget the endless narratives and annoying camera cuts of the average sports highlight DVD; this is nothing but the games.

MLB wisely configured the discs so you can navigate by the half-inning, moving straight to your favorite highlights without sacrificing anything from the game. Watch only the at-bats you want and set up your own personal highlight reel out of the moments you choose. Going one better than TiVO, the boxed set also includes a generously packed bonus disc, featuring the 2004 World Series Film, narrated by Denis Leary, as well as 13 other extra features including footage of the post-victory celebrations and the 2005 Ring & Banner Ceremony. Even the packaging is custom-made for fans, featuring "SleeveStats" that contain complete inning-by-inning line scores, detailed box scores, team trivia, and much more at a glance on the DVD cover. It's like a baseball card on steroids. For baseball fans, this is the complete package and then some. --Dan Vancini

Bad News First: No games from the series against Anaheim (which were on ESPN rather than Fox), in which David Ortiz put on a hitting clinic--a one-disc overview would have been really nice. Really nice. . . . Thanks, ESPN, for helping out with copyright stuff. . . . That knocks it down to 4 1/2 stars right there. But the real drama came with the Yankees series, though, so I'll survive. I don't have a good enough system to notice some of the more technical picture/color/resolution issues that have been mentioned, so I'm fine with that, too, even though some others have voiced valid criticisms. That's pretty good for bad news. . . .

The Good News: Everything (and I mean everything!) is on these discs. This set of DVDs is a spectacular collection of the most important ALCS in Red Sox history, some of the most exciting baseball to be played in October, and then the World Series, which seemed terribly anti-climactic somehow after Games 4 & 5 against the Yankees and a nice partial comeback by the Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series. Whatever I might be missing from the Anaheim series, I get back twofold from this set--back up to 5 stars. Easy.

The Games: Aside from a disastrous Game 3 (which might be good to watch just to keep the comeback in even better perspective), the games were close, competitive, and dramatic. Some pretty good drama unfolded in Games 1 & 2, despite the Red Sox losses. Game 4 showcased a classic display of determination (by both teams) within a back-and-forth struggle, "the steal" by Dave Roberts, and the ultimate vintage walk-off home run by Ortiz in the bottom of the 12th inning.

Aside from the Fox/NY logo that shows up on every game -- couldn't they have rendered this set from a network master, and not a copy owned by some Fox affiliate? -- there are definite quality issues...

ALCS Games 4 & 5 have been squeezed onto 1 DVD each. A 4+ hour game on 1 DVD? Terrible. By definition, this means that the team that made these DVD's had to compress the video, thereby lowering the overall quality. That is a disservice to anyone buying this set - especially since these 2 games are among the most likely to be watched by happy Sox fans.

Interestingly, A&E/MLB seems to have acknowledged this in a unique way. Take a look at the first 8.5 innings of Game 4. Fuzzy, murky, dark picture quality with lots of digital artifacts. Then take a look at the bottom on the 9th inning, with Boston's comeback. Suddenly the video is nice. Sharper, clearer and brighter.

What does this mean? It means that A&E/MLB decided to use different quality settings WITHIN a single game. Poor quality for the first 8.5 innings of Game 4 (to squeeze the full game onto the disc), then suddenly nice quality for those innings most likely to be watched, such as the bottom of the ninth.

I find this incredibly annoying. I feel that each game should have the same high quality throughout. If some games were too long to have consistent high quality - put the darn game on 2 discs! It is not that hard to figure out.

Aside from the inconsistent video quality within single discs, nearly all of the games are missing the Fox intro. The lone exception is World Series Game 1, where they have kept the Fox intro showing the return of the World Series to New England.

The best playoff series has the worst production ever. VHS Quality at best. No Widescreen, No HD, No Digital Sound, Horrible video quality. Since the Fox NY logo appears on one of the sceens one has to wonder if the production was done by NY fans. Very Poor. 2 stars for the fact that the series was the best.

This is a dream come true. I searched "online auctions" for DVDs of these games. And found them but never bought them (too expensive). I have seen the World Series highlights DVDs, and the endless talk about the once-in-a-lifetime baseball comeback. But I want to see it all. Relive it all. Not just the great pitches, or the bad breaks. But everything.

36 hours? Who has that much time to watch these all over again? You already know how it ends. But Hollywood can not script drama and action of this magnitude. Make the time. History will remember this series (ALCS anyway) for many, many years to come.

Even if you're not a Red Sox fan. Even if you're not a baseball fan. This series of games will speak to the heart of any sports fan. It can not get enough attention in my opinion.

And simply put, what better way to commemorate the games than just giving us everything and the kitchen sink. Let the viewer decide on what hilights he/she wants to watch. And no scripted bibble-babble as in the slew of DVDs that followed. If it really is verbatim, then the commentators astoundment is real and as-it-happens.

I can't wait for this set. I never even knew it was coming until I saw it on the Amazon release list.

Grab some popcorn and some beer. Turn up the volume. And relive some of the most dramatic games in all of sports history. It could very well make a baseball fan out of anyobody.
