What interested me to this set was the complete game broadcast of Game Five of that year's ALCS. I'm a sucker for old (and newer) baseball games on DVD so when I read that game was on here, I had to get this set. The video quality is as good as you could expect. ABC's telecast of the game has Keith Jackson, Jim Palmer, and Earl Weaver handling the announcing. Jackson of course, is great. Palmer, foreshadowing his future career, does a nice job on commentary. As for Weaver well, his commentary and grammar are nothing to write home about (including referring to one player having "stoled" bases). ABC loses their announcing briefly during the broadcast and as a nice bonus, the Brewers' radio call featuring Bob Uecker is seamlessly mixed in. Once ABC regained their announcing, at least to an extent, the DVD returns to the ABC announcers.
All in all, this is a recommended purchase for Brewers fans and a mildly recommended purchase for all other baseball fans.
I missed the post season of 1981 and the World Series of 1982 and it wasn't until the following year that I bought a VCR (Beta).Read more ›
