Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The 1975 World Series is treasured by baseball fans and historians as one of the most exciting, dramatic, and important events in the history of Major League Baseball. The mighty Cincinnati Reds lineup was stacked with players who would win the MVP award six times between 1970 and 1977. The Boston Red Sox defeated the three-time World Champion Oakland A's and were led by Fred Lynn, AL MVP and Rookie of the Year. For eleven days these stellar clubs staged an unforgettable performance that capture the attention of the entire sporting world, and in the process created some of the most indelible baseball television images in memory.

This unprecedented seven-DVD collector's edition preserves all of the remarkable history of the 1975 World Series with the actual broadcast of each game! It was unbelievable the first time--today the game action and heroics are even more exhilarating. Intensify your viewing of each game with the official stats, data, and game summaries on SleeveStats, the perfect companion to the ultimate baseball DVD experience.

------------------------------------------------

It's hard for me to imagine owning a better collectible keepsake of the stellar 1975 World Series than what A&E Home Video and Major League Baseball Properties have put together for baseball fans here -- a 7-Disc DVD compilation featuring all seven games from the original NBC-TV network telecasts (with Tony Kubek, Curt Gowdy, Joe Garagiola, and Reds' play-by-play man Marty Brennaman, among others, at the microphones calling the action).

All of these games are presented complete and uncut, with two exceptions -- a half-inning of Game 2 (top of the 2nd) and 1-and-a-half innings (plus one additional batter) of Game 3 are missing on these DVDs. Evidently that video footage could not be obtained by A&E/MLB for this collector's set.

The missing moments of Games 2 and 3, however, do not involve either team's scoring. So no big home runs, RBIs, or crucial plays are part of the AWOL footage.

------------------------

THE 1975 WORLD SERIES:

The Cincinnati Reds and the Boston Red Sox battled each other over the course of seven memorable baseball games during the fall of 1975.

5.0 out of 5 stars the big Red Machine April 19, 2008
Size Name:Reds
This has been put up there as the greatest or one of the greatest World Series ever played. It has all the credentials. Sparky Anderson had put together a great team that would remain great for many years. They had Tony Perez, Joe Morgan, Pete Rose, Johnny Bench and more. The Red Sox had Jim Rice, Fred Lynn and Carl Yastremski for an outfield and Carlton Fisk for a catcher. Yet it is the little known player not destined for Cooperstown who sometimes have a big moment in the World Series. Billy Martin and Bobby Richarson for the 1952 and 1960 Yankees respectively. Al Gionfreddo for his catch on Joe D. in 1947. Sandy Amoros for his catch on Yogi Barra in 1955 and many others. In this series there was a very clutch home run by Bernie Carbo of the Reds.

Of course the most famous home run of th series was Carlton Fisk's because
(1) It won game 6 for the Red Sox and (2) it took the series to a decisive 7th game and (3) it was so close to the left field foul pole that Fisk went down the first base line and tried to "wave" the ball fair (a very familiar sight every time the home run is shown).

4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe the best Series ever, but product not the best January 21, 2007
Size Name:Reds|Verified Purchase
What holds this set back from a full five stars are the audio glitches. Along with the Game 1 ten-second delay, there is another game where the audio is a little off from the video. Speaking of video, the video quality of the games are generally good, however there are some exceptions. I'm glad that MLB is releasing these classic World Series games on DVD. This one is very good, without the audio mistakes this is an easy five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why?.... June 24, 2006
Size Name:Reds
First off, I admit this is nitpicking. This is a great collection of all 7 games of the greatest World Series ever played. It was my first real baseball memory as a kid so it will always be special to me. That being said, here are a few questions:

Why did they skip the player introductions before Games 1 & 3?!? It is a baseball tradition to introduce the opposing players, coaches, etc. every year yet A&E couldn't find room on the dvd for it?

WHY did they skip the post-game interviews? After game 1 Kubek interviews Luis Tiant and after game 6, OF COURSE, he interviews Carlton Fisk. Why couldn't A&E leave the tape rolling?!? A few more minutes wouldn't fit?!?

Finally (and perhaps the most fundamental issue I have), why was this presented as a Cincinnati Reds product? This was a hard fought World Series that featured 5 1-run games, 2 extra inning games and was tied going into the 9th of Game 7. I feel it should have been a more balanced presentation - at least from a packaging standpoint.

You'll notice that there is an opening montage on each dvd. They are all clips of Reds. To me, to show a summary montage of the 1975 World Series without showing Fisk waving the ball fair is blasphemous.

I would love it if every world series became available on dvd, but A&E needs to go just a bit further to make it all-inclusive and a more even presentation.

Again, I still recommend it to any baseball fan. I guess I'm a bit pickier than most.

OKAY - I just noticed that in the bonus material, they do show the introduction of the REDS (and only the Reds) before Game 3. Obviously the Red Sox were just extras in this Cincinnati Reds production. They do include the Fisk postgame interview from Game 6, but WHY ISN'T THIS ON THE GAME 6 DISC?!!!!

heavy sigh.
