Editorial Reviews

The New York Yankees® have dominated Major League Baseball® for more than 100 years, winning 26 World Series® and 39 Pennants. Their sustained excellence and astounding talent is brought to life in this Emmy Award®--winning series that pays homage to the Yankees venerable history by taking a close look at the lives of the great players who have donned the pinstriped uniform.

It's better without the commercials of course.
C. Walsh
My favorites were the segments featuring the old-timers, particularly since they contain a lot of vintage footage that I'd never before seen.
Wilcy Moore
Even the non-Yankee fans in my house agree that this is a great collection of baseball history.

First off, this is a very nicely produced and packaged set. It's great to have most of the episodes (this is NOT the complete series) in one set. Most of the bonus features from Hart Sharp Video's 4 sets is carried over, but as I went through the set, some segments are missing. Also, the audio commentaries (on the Berra, Torre, Posada and Rivera eps) are not included. Right now, the set is $40 as opposed to the retail price of $100. For me, $40 for the ten previously unreleased episodes made this a worthwile purchase.

I'm not even a Yankee fan, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching this series. The people at the YES network have put together a collection that is nothing short of classic baseball history. My favorites were the segments featuring the old-timers, particularly since they contain a lot of vintage footage that I'd never before seen. I hope someone at MLB is watching the success of this DVD and will create a similar collection featuring many more great players (and managers) from other teams.

This is a wonderful series, and it's great to be able to find the whole thing in one place like this. Our family are die-hard Yankee fans, and have enjoyed many of the sections of these DVDs over and over.

I bought this set about a week ago, and have only watched 8 (Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Rizzuto, Berra, O'Neill, Jeter, and Posada) of the 31 biography's so far, but I can already say this is outstanding! I'm a Tigers fan too, but appreciate the Yankees and what they mean to Baseball.

I found this for a good price, so picked it up, but wasn't expecting a whole lot. I'm a big Baseball fan, so I thought it was probably filled with a lot of info I already knew, clips I've already seen, and was wondering if it was going to be filled with Yankees "Homer-isms" since it was the YES Network. Was I wrong! There was things in the Ruth, Gehrig, and DiMaggio ones I didn't know, and clips I haven't seen!

However, I think what makes this set so great is what's on there about their secondary stars like Rizzuto, Berra, and Posada. The Rizzuto one is very funny and so is Berra's. Posada's is very heart warming with the section about his family and everything they went through with Jorge Jr.!

Very well done Yankees and YES network. I'm looking forward to watching more.

If you are a baseball fan and especially if you are a New York Yankees fan, this is an informative collection of biographies--and baseball history. It starts with Ruth and Gehrig and comes up to the present. Each program is about an hour long.

Most hard-core fans already know about the early greats, and those programs are fine, but it gets better with the pieces about Berra, Mantle, Ford, etc., because there are more clips of their great moments. The bio of legendary Yogi alone is worth it all. His son tells that Yogi once called a pizza parlor and asked for a medium pizza. "You want that cut in 8 slices or 4?" Yogi was asked. "Better make it 4," was the reply. "I don't think I can eat 8."

There are fine clips of Mantle launching spectacular home runs, Ford on the mound, Yogi hitting homers on pitches out of the strike zone.

This is well done and a treasure for the fan.

I bought this for my dad, he's originally from New York, and since we live in California there isn't often an opportunity for him to purchase Yankee items. I found that this was just a fantastic find and buy. Though I haven't personally watched it, I know that my dad thought it was completely awesome.

I think that having it in such a nice sporty case sleeve was a really nice addition and shows off the Yankee pride well.

As a Yankee fan and unable to get YES it's great to pickup this series on some of the Great players and managers who wore pinstripes over the years. Hopefully they will come out with another edition soon.

I have caught of the few episodes of Yankeeography of the YES network but wanted to see more. It's better without the commercials of course. The coverage is good, but perhaps updates at the end would have been a nice touch, like the passing of Bobby Murcer since the making of it. Overall I think it was well done in following the individual Yankee careers in less than an hour apiece. I may have elongated some things, like Lou Gehrig's ENTIRE speech, etc., but for the most part is great for most fans, except maybe the diehards, who aleady know this stuff and are looking for more.
