Editorial Reviews

Never has a home team played a World Series under a roof or in front of louder fans. Never in the history of Major League Baseball has the home team won every game of the World Series. Of course, never before had the Minnesota Twins won a World Series, and never would anyone have picked them to improve from a sub-.500 winning percentage to champions in just one season. With a lineup powered by the hard-hitting foursome, a staff anchored by two starting aces and one in the bullpen, a manager whose calm was contagious, and rabid fans who nearly blew the roof off the home field, the Twins throttled baseball with an unmatched home field advantage. Every game of this Twin Cities tale, every pitch, every rafter-rocking home run, and thunderous roar of the Metrodome faithful is digitally preserved in this one-of-a-kind collectible. Unlike certain Cardinals pitchers you may choose to not wear earplugs; however twirling "Homer Hankies" is encouraged. Your viewing of these historic games in intensified with SleeveStats: the perfect companion to the ultimate baseball DVD experience, offering official stats, trivia, and game summaries right on each DVD package. 1987 World Series Trophy Presentation; MVP Presentation to Frank Viola; Post-game Interview with Kirby Puckett; Parade Footage; A History of the Minnesota Twins; SPECIAL GAME FOOTAGE: Twins Clinching American League West Division, Twins Rally for 4 Runs in 8th Inning of ALCS Game 1, The 1987 ALCS Clincher, Harmon Killebrew Throws Out World Series Game 1 First Pitch

Now please the 1991 series.

I bought this set as a gift for my father, he is a big twins fan and he was very happy when I gave these to him, and so far he is satisfied with the product.

All in all, it's a great trip down memory lane to watch these games again.

These are the complete broadcasts of all 7 games played between the Minnesota Twins and St. Louis Cardinals in the 1987 World Series - 4 games in the Metrodome and 3 games in Busch Stadium. The quality of the broadcasts is very nice, with the exception of the sound during parts of Games 6 & 7. During the first 2.5 innings of Game 6 the sound is really bad and, while not as bad as Game 6, the sound during the first 6.5 innings of Game 7 isn't very good. Al Michaels, Tim McCarver, and Jim Palmer do the call on all 7 games.

I'm a little bit surprised that this set was released before the 1991 Twins vs. Braves series because 3 of these games weren't competitive. Also, it was very cold in Busch Stadium for games 3 & 4, so the crowd enthusiasm is somewhat low. All in all, it's a great trip down memory lane to watch these games again. Let's hope that the good folks at A&E continue to release more and more games in the future.

This set contains the complete 1987 ABC Network World Series game coverage. Each of the seven discs comes in its' own case with the box score and game summary of that specific game. I was a bit surprised that the ABC pre-game and post-game shows weren't included. A nice feature is that you can play these DVD's by the half inning if you wish.

The 7th disc also contains nine bonus features, four of which are from the ABC broadcast, and two others were from the NBC coverage of the 1987 AL Championship Series. The other three features were "A History of the Minnesota Twins", the end of the AL West clinching game against Texas, and some of the Minneapolis and St. Paul victory parades. The seven minute "A History of the Minnesota Twins" was disappointing becuse it was so short.

This set is a must for Twins fans. Cardinals fans might not enjoy it quite so much. More general fans might be able to get by with the cheaper MLB Vintage World Series Films: Minnesota Twins 1987 & 1991.

I am a big Twins Fan and have been waiting for the World Series DVDs to come out. I never recorded the games and I've always been sorry I haven't. This product is so clear and without commercials, and I've been watching them over and over. It's especially significant to my family and me as they hear me talking about the series and now they can see it for themselves. Thank you so much for having this available.

Following up on others' reviews, I would agree that the sound quality during the first several innings of Game 6, in particular, is poor. NOTE: the sound on the original TV broadcast of this game was fine (I taped it off of TV at the time). I contacted A&E about this issue, and they said there was nothing they could do about it. My guess is the ABC Sports master tape has degraded in quality over the past 20 years (or they gave A&E a poor copy of it).

Also, the inclusion of pre- and post-game coverage would have made it even better.

Having said all of that, this is still a must-own item for long-time Twins fans. Cardinals fans may want to own it too for historical purposes and footage of solid play by several of their stars at the time, although they should look to the 1982 or 2006 World Series for better highlights of their team.

This is the first world series I remember watching very closly & really caring about. My Mom & Dad were Twins fans & we watched every game, every pitch of this amazing series live with baited breath. For Twins fans this is a easy "must have". For fans of baseball world series who never saw this remarkable set of seven games, you will want to watch. It is pure fun! Now please the 1991 series. Please!

1991 Series?
I haven't heard any info about when the 1991 World Series will come to DVD, but my guess is it will be next year (2011) for the 20th anniversary, just like the 1987 series came in 2007 (also 20th anniversary). Another example is the Kansas City Royals 1985 World Series set just came out for the... Read More
