Perhaps it is just my copy, but the the picture and audio quality of the SB 19 disc is poor. The color is washed out and the sound is muted. The copy of the game that has generally circulated among game traders is superior, and I would recommend that if you have that one already, you may want to retain it. The quality of the other discs are much better, although the color on the SB 24 recording seems to be a little dark.
Also, if you have personal recordings of these games that include pre and/or post games shows that you want to keep, you should hang on to those recordings. The discs do not include any pre or post game materials, not even the well known farewell interview with Bill Walsh after SB 23. Each game has been edited to remove some huddles and insignificant plays so as stay under 2 hours (apparently to fit on a single dvd without further compressing the quality of the recordings).
All in all, as a 49er fan/collector, it's nice to get this set, but it is a lot less than it could have been - It doesn't seem like NFL Films put much effort into it.
- the 1981 NFC Championship game vs the Cowboys "the catch"
- the dramatic 1983 playoff game vs the Lions
- the 1988 playoff drubbing of the Vikings
- the 1988 NFC Championship game win in Chicago
- the 1990 divisional round win against the Redskins
- the 1994 NFC Championship game win over the Cowboys
- the 2001 Wild Card shoot-out win over the Giants (a great game even with the controversial endng)
Look there- I'm not a 49ers fan, and I named 7 games that I'd imagine a Niners fan would love to have just off the top of my head. I'm sure more research would reveal lots more. Montana had innumerable dramatic regular season performances, and there was a great Steve Young comeback in Philly one year, if I'm remembering correctly.
Other teams like the Raiders and Redskins who have multiple Super Bowl wins have been rewarded with sets of just the three Super Bowl wins, while the Bears got a FULL SEASON and the Eagles, who have NO Super Bowl wins just got a loving 10 DISC set!!! I'm happy for the fans of those teams, but GADS! It's almost like the Raiders and 'Skins fans are being punished for rooting for a successful team. And now it looks like the 49ers have joined the ranks with this 5 disc set. All three of these teams desreve the full 10 disc treatment, like the Packers, Cowboys, and Giants got (and PLEASE improve on the lame Vikings set).
I mean it's not a bad set, but I think teams like the Steelers, Raiders, 49ers and Redskins got snubbed just because they won alot of SB's. They have way better histories than the Eagles. And they had alot of other great games outside of the Super Bowls.

This may very well be the worst video and audio quality of any DVD I've ever seen. If I didn't know better, I would say the quality of this set falls short of VHS tapes (of these... Read morePublished 11 months ago by NDH
