Product Description

HOUSTON ASTROS 50TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTOR'S EDITION is a five-DVD showcase that salutes four classic full television broadcasts plus, an all-new documentary special ASTROS MEMORIES.

From the roof-raising euphoria of the Astrodome to the open-air adoration of Minute Maid Park, the cascade of emotions and joys are relived as four ESSENTIAL GAMES OF THE HOUSTON ASTROS are presented on DVD for the first time!

1981 NOLAN RYAN'S 5TH NO-HITTER vs. LAD, September 26, 1981 - In his second season with the Astros Nolan Ryan became the first pitcher to throw five career no-hitters.

1986 MIKE SCOTT'S NO-HITTER CLINCHES DIVISION vs. SF, September 25, 1986 - The Astros punctuate their 25th season's celebration with the double delight of clinching the division behind Mike Scott's no-hit masterpiece.

2005 NLDS CLINCHER - 18-INNINGS vs. ATL, October 9, 2005 - Chris Burke's solo home run in the bottom of the 18th caps the Astros 7-6 victory in the longest game in postseason history.

CRAIG BIGGIO'S 3,000TH HIT vs. COL, June 28, 2007 - Craig Biggio entered three hits shy of the 3,000 hit milestone then promptly collected five hits in the game and sparked the winning rally which ended with Carlos Lee's walk-off grand slam!

ASTROS MEMORIES salutes Jimmy Wynn, Jose Cruz, Nolan Ryan, Cesar Cedeno, Craig Biggio, and Jeff Bagwell. Beyond the individual heroics this DVD celebrates the 1980 and 1986 seasons and playoffs runs, and magical 2004 and National League pennant-winning 2005 seasons. The history makers become the storytellers through exclusive interviews including: Biggio, Ryan, Phil Garner, Art Howe, and Alan Ashby. Celebrated no-hitters, 3,000 hits, historic hits, heroes, and magical moments: 100% Houston baseball.

Having endured a 4-month long wait from the time I pre-ordered this set until it was released and arrived at my door, I was more than excited to see these games and the accompanying documentary. The only true problem with this collection is that it leaves this die-hard Astros fan wanting more, but I'm sure that's the case with the fans of all the teams that have thus far had an Essential Games collection released.

There have been sometimes conflicting, and at other times incorrect, descriptions of which games would be on the set, so I'll list them here:

Disc 1: Nolan Ryan's 5th no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers from 1981.

Disc 2: Mike Scott's 1986 no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants that clinched the NL West Division title for the Astros.

Disc 3: Game 5 of the 2005 NLDS against the Atlanta Braves. An 18-inning marathon in which homers by Lance Berkman (8th-inning grand slam), Brad Ausmus (9th-inning game-tying), and Chris Burke (18th-inning game-winner) helped the Astros overcome their playoff arch-nemesis. (This is not the game that put them into the 2005 World Series as the product description states. The Astros beat the Cardinals in the 2005 NLCS to make it to the Series).

Disc 4: The June 2007 game against the Colorado Rockies in which Craig Biggio got his 3,000th hit. Biggio had a 5-hit game and started a two-out, game-winning rally in the bottom of the 11th inning. (I was in attendance at this game and, out of all the baseball games I've attended in my life, this is one of the two greatest experiences I've had at a ballgame; the other came at Pittsburgh's old Three Rivers Stadium in 1982 when the team saluted Willie Stargell before his retirement at the end of that season.

Being a Die Hard Houston Astros fan I was extremely excited that such a product was being released, especially after the excellent Astros:25 Years Silver Odyssey was released 25 years ago. Unfortunatley, the Houston Astros 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition documentary was a hug disappointment for me and seemed hurriedly put together. I know the Houston Astros do not have the same great history as the New York Mets, but I was hoping for more than a quick documentary and just two average games. Personally, I would have liked to see more on the 1980 and 1986 NLCS, especially the 1980 NLCS. I would have enjoyed more information on the 1979 season, History of the Astrodome or some great players in the past. I was hoping for a little more on Don Wilson (only Astro to pitch two no-hitters) and Jimmy Wynn, James Umbricht, Dick "Turk" Farrell (who once snuck a baby alligator into the whirlpool of the Colt .45s' clubhouse), Doug Rader, J.R. Richard, Joe Niekro, etc. I know it is probably impossible to put together, but I would purchase a set of all 10 Houston Astros No-Hitters thrown during the first 50 Years. Oh well, maybe the 75th Anniversary DVD will be better.

This is an awesome collection. I have been an Astro fan since their existence in the National League. It was nice to see the completed games in their entirety. The only negative review I would have would be the missing NLCS game that took the Astros to their first World Series. I would have love to see that game again in the collection.
