Editorial Reviews

This set includes the following players: Mickey Mantle - this is a nice career summary of the legendary player, and it gives you a sense of how truly amazing he was. While watching this episode, I felt like I missed out not ever having seen him play (Of course, I was like, FOUR, when he retired). If you are very familiar with his history, this may seem like old news, but many of the eyewitness accounts from living Yankees is inspiring and invaluable. Plus there's a lot from his wife and family which I found quite moving as well. Mariano Rivera - I think this is a little early for a career summary for Mariano (like I thought with Jeter on the previous volume) but it sure makes a case for him being a) a great Yankee and b) a Hall of Fame candidate when the time comes. There's some nice footage of him in Panama...these little documentaries do make these players a bit more three-dimensional and less iconic...for the most part. There are some players, like Mantle, DiMaggio and strangely enough, Guidry, that come off completely three-dimensional AND iconic at the same time... Elston Howard - I was relatively unfamiliar with Elston Howard, and after seeing this, shame on me. After seeing this episode, it is clear his name belongs with the other Yankee greats, based not only on performance, but on leadership

Oh yeah...I'm totally addicted to "Yankeeography."

And I'm a DODGER fan, if you can believe that.

But anybody who loves baseball, must in some little way love the Yankees, or at least ONE Yankee. For those of you unfamiliar with this format, each 42-minute episode is a "Biography"-style show on one Yankee.

Each three-disc DVD set contain SIX shows, plus an extra DVD's worth of extraneous clips and speeches and stuff.

This set includes the following players:

Mickey Mantle - this is a nice career summary of the legendary player, and it gives you a sense of how truly amazing he was. While watching this episode, I felt like I missed out not ever having seen him play (Of course, I was like, FOUR, when he retired). If you are very familiar with his history, this may seem like old news, but many of the eyewitness accounts from living Yankees is inspiring and invaluable. Plus there's a lot from his wife and family which I found quite moving as well.

Mariano Rivera - I think this is a little early for a career summary for Mariano (like I thought with Jeter on the previous volume) but it sure makes a case for him being a) a great Yankee and b) a Hall of Fame candidate when the time comes.

Verified Purchase
Mantle, Gehrig, Rizzuto etc. Some of the biggies are in this volume. I hadn't much interest in the Paul O'Neil one but watched it recently and it was excellent, as all Yankeeography shows are. Even non-Yankee fans should find them enjoyable. Yankee haters, maybe not. LOL.
