3.0 out of 5 stars Nice look back at "Harvey's Wallbangers" June 13, 2007
This is a two-disc set. The first disc features a documentary on the 1982 Brewers and some extras including the final inning of the Eastern Division clincher against Baltimore. The documentary is fine and the extras are nice.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Thing that Almost Happened February 3, 2008
Verified Purchase
I had the pleasure of living in Milwaukee in 1977 through the first half of 1981. I was a Braves fan when I was a little kid but then they moved to Atlanta and I just cheered the players I knew from the Milwaukee era; Aaron, Mathews, Spahn. I turned into a Twins fan after the Braves moved and, when I moved to Milwaukee, I figured I'd get to see a Twins series every year and maybe a Yankee game or two but who were these Brewers? Well, I got there just at the right time and then left a year and a half too early. I had seasons tickets for the 1980 season and had to buy two seasons tickets because no one else I knew had the money to go in on the deal. I had great lower box seats about 6 rows behind the Brewers dugout. By 1981, city life had gotten the best of me and I knew it was time to move on but, when the right job came along (in Williston, ND), I asked if they could hold it 2 1/2 months because I had tickets to the Yankees series in late June. Well, there was no Yankees series in June, 1981 although I waited until then to see if the strike would end. You see, I LOVED the Brewers. They were a great bunch of players that could score runs at ease. Heck, people were coming up from Chicago to watch them (and not just when the White Sox were in town)! Their pitching was their weak spot and their relief pitching was a joke (sorry Reggie Cleveland et. al.)! But boy could they hit the ball and Milwaukee was the ideal place for them to play. The THE TRADE ocurred before the 1981 season and we suddenly had the missing parts in Vuckovich, Simmons, and especially Fingers.

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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Purchase October 27, 2013

Happy to find this DVD, it's going to be a great Christmas surprise for my father-in-law! It's hard for him to wait between the world series and spring training so having this World Series to relive will help pass some winter evening. It arrived packaged well. Would buy from this seller again.
