Product Description

The five quintessential games that defined the beginning of a new era. Pinstripe Pride returns with this extraordinary collection of the Bronx Bombers greatest World Series games from one of the greatest chapters in Yankee history. Under the leadership of manager Joe Torre, Yankee baseball set a new standard of dominance across the Major Leagues. Relive the most amazing Yankee moments--Jim Leyritz blasting a clutch round-tripper off Braves closer Mark Wohlers, Scott Brosius becoming the 8th player in history to hit World Series home runs in back-to-back innings, Tino Martinez pushing Game 4 of the 2001 Fall Classic into extra innings, and Derek Jeter earning his title as "Mr. November" with the game-winning home run. The perfect companion to the ultimate baseball DVD experience are SleeveStats, offering dynamic official stats that provide trivia, game summaries, and player information right on each DVD’s cover. Included in this dynamic piece of memorabilia are these complete games: 1996 World Series Game 4 vs. the Atlanta Braves, 1998 World Series Game 3 vs. the San Diego Padres, 1999 World Series Game 3 vs. the Atlanta Braves, 2000 World Series Game 5 vs. the New York Mets, 2001 World Series Game 4 vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks. PLUS two bonus discs featuring: 1996, 1998, 1999, and 2000 World Series Films. DVD Features: 2000 ALCS Game 4: Rocket’s Masterpiece; 2001 AL Pennant: Torre’s Toast; Doc Gooden’s No-Hitter Footage; David Wells’ Perfect Game Footage; David Cone’s Perfect Game Footage; 2001 ALDS: Jeter’s Game-Saving Flip; 1996 ALDS Game 2: Palmer’s E Provides Win; 2000 ALCS Games 6: Justice Rocks Rhodes; Pitch-by-Pitch: Leyritz vs. Wohlers; 1996 World Series: Last At-Bat; 2000 World Series Clubhouse Celebration; 1998 World Series MVP Trophy Presentation; 1999 World Series Trophy Presentation; Looking Back: O’Neill Reflects on Last Game.

The New York Yankees Fall Classic Collector's Edition 1996-2001 is the perfect counterargument for Yankees fans who've gotten tired of cocky Red Sox fans bragging about their comprehensive 2004 World Series DVD set. Sure, Boston finally broke its curse and in the process branded the Bronx Bombers as the greatest chokers in sports history. But let's not forget that it was the Yankees who won four of the last five World Series of the 20th century--1996, 1998, 1999, and 2000--and if this seven-disc set doesn't include every game of every series like the Red Sox set... well, that's because there are simply too many championships to cover here. What you get instead is a single complete World Series game from the four championship years, each on a single disc, and as originally broadcast on TV minus commercials: the 1996 game 4 vs. the Atlanta Braves, in which Jim Leyritz's late home run was the key to a big comeback; the 1998 game 3 vs. the San Diego Padres, in which Scott Brosius's two homers were the key to another late comeback; the 1999 game 3 vs. Atlanta, won by Chad Curtis's 10th-inning homer; and the 2000 "Subway series" game 5 clincher vs. the Mets. The fifth complete game included is the 2001 game 4 vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Yankees' late home runs off Byung Hyun-Kim are certainly part of great Yankee lore (and the 9/11 attacks that year made the Yankees a rare sympathetic figure), but when the usually automatic Mariano Rivera blew the save in game 7, the Yankees' dominating run ended, and many of the classiest Yanks such as Paul O'Neill began to retire.

Accompanying the five game discs are two bonus discs that contain the original Major League Baseball World Series highlight films from 1996, 1998, 1999, and 2000. They provide an hourlong overview of each series and are a reminder of the only way people used to be able to watch baseball on home video. Also included are a variety of other memorable clips from post-season and otherwise. For example, there's a two-minute clip of the famous "Jeter flip," which snuffed out an Oakland rally in the 2001 AL division series. There's a six-minute clip of Roger Clemens's 2000 playoff game against Seattle, which includes 15 third strikes, announcer reactions, and the high-and-tight pitch that knocked down then-Mariner Alex Rodriguez and was generally credited with setting the tone of the game. In addition, each disc comes with SleeveStats, incorporating box scores, inning-by-inning line scores, team rosters, and other factoids into the packaging. All in all, it's an amazing 14-hour keepsake of one of sports' greatest modern dynasties. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have For Yankee Fans October 9, 2005
The only regret I have about this DVD set is that it isn't as big as, or bigger than MLB's overly indulgent 2004 Red Sox set. The five games selected for presentation in this set are fascinating to see in quality more pristine than any Yankee fan's off-air recording might be, but the set IMO could easily have included five more games from this era, including notable ALDS and ALCS games as well.

The truly nice thing is that in presenting these game broadcasts, we get them unedited. The FOX and NBC graphics are left intact as are the promos for other shows, all of which usually gets cut out of ESPN Classic replays. Chapter stops are conveniently keyed to individual half innings which is very helpful for accessing key moments of the games.

The supplementary material also makes this set a must-have. The 2000 WS was the last official highlights video to be released in VHS only at the time it came out, so Yankee fans can now for the first time have the four WS highlight videos of 96-98-99-00 in a better format. Also, in contrast to the supplementary material one finds in the Yankeeography discs, key games like the Wells and Cone perfect games are spotlighted with up to a full half inning of action rather than just one batter's worth of action.

Yankee fans should pick this up and hope that MLB might do a Volume 2 set devoted to this great era of the Yankee dynasty sometime in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars What only 7 discs????? October 14, 2005
Make some room on your DVD shelf next to your Yankeeographys because MLB Productions have a hit on their hands. They answered the 2004 Boston Red Sox box set with a Yankee compilation that was second to none.

While the Red Sox set included only the 2004 World Series the Yankees collection includes some of the greatest World Series Games of the Joe Torre Era. The Red Sox set is guaranteed to last 86 years so it should keep the Sox fans happy for a long time. This set includes five complete World Series Games, all of which are Yankee victories of course. And if that wasn't enough, in addition to the complete games there are two bonus disks.

As exciting as the complete games are, unfortunately it doesn't include John Sterling and Michael Kay like the YES Network Yankee Classics do. It does include the original national broadcasts, which has commentators that feature Bob Costas, Joe Buck, Tim McCarver and Joe Morgan. The picture couldn't be sharper and it does seem to be a full featured DVD as opposed to some past releases.

The full games included 1996 Game 4 which features Jimmy Leyritz leading the Yanks back from a 6-0 deficit to a 8-6 extra inning triumph that tied the series at 2 all. The next game is another come from behind victory. The third game of the 1998 series features the Bombers beating San Diego ace reliever Trevor Hoffman.

The third complete game is another game three, this one again against the Braves that features a walk off homer by Chad Curtis. Mariano Rivera took a win this time around instead of his usual save. The forth complete game DVD is a Game 5 series ender against the Mets in 2000, the first Subway Series since 1956. The Yankees won it in the top of the ninth on a single by super sub Louie Sojo.

Being a huge Yankees fan, I love this set. The games bring back great memories and will be a treasured keepsake in my home forever. What keeps it from being five stars is the video quality for the Padres game is erratic, and the stats shown on the back for the 1999 Braves game differ. For the pitcher stats, it states Jason Grimsley didn't walk anyone when in reality, he walked two batters. Those flaws certainly don't prevent me from recommending this to all Yankees fans. It would be great if MLB Productions and A&E came out with a second volume of Yankees World Series games from 1996-2001. There are more than enough to choose from.

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's the Clinching games
I'm happy about the 96 WS 6m5 & 01 yankee stadium gm's but they should have 96, 98, 99, 00 Clinching games, because those are the games really matter.
