Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Not for Chicago White Sox fans only, this boxed set chronicles a World Series championship nearly a century in the making. The last time the White Sox won the World Series, in 1917, John F. Kennedy was born. Woodrow Wilson was president. Walt Disney graduated high school, and a first-class stamp was three cents. The drama, with its All-Star roster of heroes both sung (American League Champion Series MVP Paul Konerko, World Series MVP Jermaine Dye, and Cinderella story, closer Bobby Jenks) and unsung (Ken Williams, who, incredibly, was not named General Manager of the Year), unfolds over seven discs: The deciding game 3 of the American League Division Series against the 2004 champions, the Boston Red Sox; the deciding game 5 of the American League Championship Series against the improbably named Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim; and the four-game World Series sweep of the Houston Astros. The bonus disc will be of more parochial interest, with team interviews, a replay of the final three outs of the series, the White Sox's triumphant homecoming, and player speeches at the official city celebration (the highlight: Paul Konerko presents team owner Jerry Reinsdorf with the ball Konerko caught for the final out of the World Series). Each game is presented complete, with no commercials.

Each game-disc slipcase sports box scores, team stats, game conditions, attendance, and trivia (number of foul balls in game 2 of the World Series: 55). Inside are complete inning-by-inning summaries, with scoring highlighted in red. Baseball purists can watch the games in real time (more than 18 hours in all!). The less patient can progress through inning chapters to such heroics as White Sox second baseman Geoff Blum's game-winning homer in the 14th inning of game 3 of the World Series, or shortstop Juan Uribe leaping into the stands to snag a foul ball for the second out in game 4. Though this set doesn't quite cover all the bases (all of the postseason games would have been nice), this Collector's Edition will thrill baseball fans with a sense of history. It will certainly make White Sox fans happy, but they'll be even more ecstatic if there's a sequel. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

The 2005 Chicago White Sox finally put it all together in the same season-incredible pitching, timely hitting, superb management and an unselfish, all-around team effort and finally the second longest championship drought in baseball history (88 years) comes to an end with a bold exclamation point at the end of a dramatic sweep of the Houston Astros to clinch that elusive World Series trophy. 7 DVDs. 2005/color/18 hrs., 32 min/NR.

I have found out through some web searching that this set will contain 7 DVDs which will contain the 4 World Series games against the Astros, plus the series clinching games against the Red Sox and the Angels for a total of 6 games. I assume the 7th disc will contain bonus material.

It would have been nice to have all 12 games in the White Sox' run (or at least the 11 victories), since the two clinching playoff games were on the road, but I assume the DVD producers don't think the market justifies such a set given that the World Series had a low viewer rating. But it should be a great addition to a White Sox fan's video library!

Verified Purchase
Here's what you get:

- Full coverage of clinching Game 3 vs. Boston in ALDS

- Full coverage of clinching Game 5 vs. Anaheim in ALCS

- All 4 World Series games agains Astros

- Footage of locker room celebration, victory parade, and division clinching win in Detroit

The production values of this set are outstanding; each DVD is individually packaged in a slim DVD case. The outside of the case contains game stats (attendance, length of game, box score, etc.) and trivia, while the inside of the case has game recaps. The DVDs themselves are arranged with every half-inning as a "chapter", so you can browse to the bottom of the 6th against Boston with ease at any time. The packaging and production of the DVDs is first rate.

The only "complaint" that I have is that it really is less intense when you know what's going to happen, but every true Sox fan needs this set; it really blows grainy Tivo footage out of the water.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the purchase April 5, 2006
I would recommend this purchase. It contains the clinchers of both the ALDS and ALCS, along with the four World Series games. I have waited since the final out of the October classic for the release, and it's worth it. I got to relive all the moments that I will cherish for years to come.

If I had any complaints, they would come from the first disc, against the Boston Red Sox. The quality of that is slightly lacking with green specs occassionally, including the famous bottom of the 6th inning. It's not enough to get frustrated over, but I did find it bothersome that this was in the way. Also, the MLB logo is in the left bottom corner in each game, and though it annoyed me at first, my vision adjusted accordingly to phase it out of my mind. Each game is wide screen. I also noticed in the game 3 marathon, that they cut a short bit out of the broadast to perhaps cut time. The pitching count was still the same in between them, so they might've cut it out due to time constraints. You'd have to pay close attention to catch this, and it's in extra innings. That DVD was 4 hours and 20 minutes long.

The bonus DVD was interesting, though shorter than I was expecting (58 minutes). I wish they released this a month later so they could've added the ring ceremony, as the other World Series have. But overall I thank A&E and hope they continue this trend for years to come. World Series are special events that provide memories for everyone baseball fan. I was honored my city got to play in one in my lifetime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Re-live the excitement January 14, 2006
This is a must have for every White Sox fan and for that matter, every baseball fan. The White Sox showed the world what a great team they were in 2005 overcoming skeptics who waited for them to collapse. By winning the WS, the SOX took back the city of Chicago as the most popular and exciting team to watch and are again Chicago's team. This group of players along with Manager Ozzie Guillen won the hearts of baseball fans everywhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars White Sox Fans calm down March 6, 2006
All this talk about an east coast bias, if you looked at the yankee box set they released, they only had 5 games. The Red Sox one is so overpriced because of all the games on it AND that entire series had some of the most classic games in playoff history. For the other world series DVD's they have the entire world series and it's not A&E's fault the chi sox swept that series. They're not just selling to the fans of the team, they're trying to sell the DVD to Schmoes like me who are sports fans in general, and I would buy this DVD because it's not outrageous and there's some very good baseball on the set.

That Mets one looks tasty too. Buckner baby.

4.0 out of 5 stars SOUTH LOOP SOX FAN WANTS MORE GAMES INCLUDED March 15, 2006
After 88 years of waiting, how much more expensive would it have been to include all the post-season games on this box set? The games you are leaving out included some of the most thrilling post-season baseball moments of all time, including the A.J. dropped third strike and for Chicago fans, being able to watch the first ALCS games in 22 years and first World Series games in 46 years to be played in the city.

I HIGHLY suggest they release a Volume II with all the other post-season games. I will still buy this because as a die-hard Sox fan, I buy any and everything commemorating the World Series Victory.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too bad East Coast Bias affects box sets January 19, 2006
Yep, you can see by the cover picture that this only has six games: the two clinchers and the four WS games. Nice that Boston gets 11 games for their box set and we get only 6. No respect. Absolutely none. Every game the Sox won (except the first ALDS game) was close and had compelling storylines. This means we won't get the AJ "dropped third", the 1st-inning homers in consecutive games by Konerko in the ALCS, and many other great moments. I'll still buy this, but I will always be disappointed.
