Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

All the glory and classic moments of the Oakland A's World Series Championships from 1972 to 1989 are digitally preserved in this one-of-a-kind DVD.

Catfish Hunter's pitching led the way in 1972 against the Cincinnati Reds when six of the seven games were decided by one run. The 1974 Fall Classic versus the Los Angeles Dodgers featured the hitting of Joe Rudi and Bert Campaneris, but it was pitcher Ken Holtzman's timely home run that sealed the A's third title in a row and place in history. Fifteen year later the A's met the San Francisco Giants in a Series that was delayed ten days after an earthquake in the Bay Area left sixty-seven people dead. After much consideration, the World Series continued, and Oakland swept all four games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witness the greatest moments in A's history ! August 8, 2006
This DVD is great for any A's fan or just baseball fans in general. This DVD has 4 seperate films you can choose from on the main screen that document that year's world series. These were also made in the year that the series was played. I enjoyed seeing the footage of A's greats like Catfish Hunter, Reggie Jackson, Vida Blue, Terry Steinbach, Mark McGwire, Dave Stewart, and Blinkie McBlinkerson.....errr I mean Jose Canseco.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun old videos of the A's glory years August 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
As others have commented, no enhancements were done to these early 1970s and 1989 World Series videos. They were just transferred over to DVD as is, which means the resolution, picture quality etc. are nowhere near what we expect in today's Blu-Ray world. That said, it's great fun to see these old films and remember both the A's and their opponents. Those opponents were the "Big Red Machine" Cincinnati Reds, the New York Mets, the Los Angele Dodgers, and the San Francisco Giants. This was during the Charlie Finley era, so the bright green and blinding yellow A's uniforms are worth a look all by themselves! And then there are the players - Joe Rudy, Reggie Jackson, Sal Bando, Vida Blue, Rollie Fingers, Catfish Hunter, and many more for the A's ... and equally great players for the opposition! So if you accept it for what it is - unmodified old video highlights - you will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flashback to the good old days March 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
I was 12-14 living in Sacramento when these three world series were going on. The Oakland A's just came out of nowhere to shock the world and I was there and loving it. Very nice to see those wild crazy swinging A's again. I very much enjoyed watching these highlights and if you are a A's fan you will have to have this. Reggie, Campy, Geno, Catfish, Blue Moon, Rudi, Rollie, Sal the captain. Some of the most memorable characters in baseball history and they were one of my favorite teams (the Giants being the other) of all time. Not a steroid in sight just a bunch of good ball players clicking together (and fighting each other) and having fun. Oh and Charlie O the mule, can't forget him.

Just get this and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gift for any Athletics fan. January 2, 2014
Verified Purchase
I must admit I did not watch this DVD. I bought it as a birthday gift for my brother. He really enjoyed it and came back to me with all kinds of knowledge of the team that I didn't know. He really enjoyed it and I know another Athletics fan would also love it.
