Editorial Reviews

As the home for the New York Mets since 1964, Shea Stadium has hosted an amazing array of history-making ballgames, all-time players, colorful managers, and millions of devoted fans. From the high-flying championship teams to the low-flying planes, the sounds of Shea Stadium are ingrained in the hearts of the enthusiastic crowds who cheer their New York Mets.

This six-game, 6-DVD collection spans five decades of promise, amusement, jubilation, and Mets baseball. It celebrates the legendary games and the baseball heroes who made Mets history. These six remarkable games are a time capsule and a window into the magic that glows within all Mets fans the magic found in their beloved Shea Stadium.

DISC 1: 1969 World Series® Game 4 vs Baltimore OriolesTM--Tom Seaver s 10-inning win was a decisive point of the 69 World Series as the Mets upset the heavily favored Orioles.
DISC 2: 1986: National League® Championship Series Game 3 vs Houston AstrosTM--This come-from-behind bottom-of-the-ninth victory ended with Lenny Dykstra s famous walk-off home run.
DISC 3: 1986: World Series Game 6 vs Boston Red SoxTM--Considered "Baseball s greatest game , this improbable 10th-inning, miracle two-out comeback reached its climax with Mookie Wilson s swing and ...here comes Knight and the Mets win it!
DISC 4: 1999: National League Championship Series Game 5 vs Atlanta BravesTM--Robin Ventura s "grand slam single" won this 15-inning game endurance test.
DISC 5: Sept. 21, 2001: Regular season vs Atlanta Braves --The emotionally charged first game in New York City after the 9/11 terrorist attacks was electrified by Mike Piazza s 8th inning 2-run home run.
DISC 6: May 19, 2006: Inter-League vs New York YankeesTM--David Wright s walk-off hit snatched victory away from the cross-town rival Yankees in this classic see-saw battle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking Forward To It May 3, 2008
Since the picture on the box was too small for me to read and the product description didn't tell me anything I wanted to know, I contacted A&E to find out which games are included in this collection. Here is their response:

DISC 1: 1969 World Series Game 4 vs Baltimore Orioles--Tom Seaver's 10-inning win was a decisive point of the '69 World Series as the Mets upset the heavily favored Orioles.

DISC 2: 1986: National League Championship Series Game 3 vs Houston Astros--This come-from-behind bottom-of-the-ninth victory ended with Lenny Dykstra's famous walk-off home run.

DISC 3: 1986: World Series Game 6 vs Boston Red Sox--Considered "Baseball's greatest game", this improbable 10th-inning, miracle two-out comeback reached its climax with Mookie Wilson's swing and "...here comes Knight and the Mets win it!"

DISC 4: 1999: National League Championship Series Game 5 vs Atlanta Braves--Robin Ventura's "grand slam single" won this 15-inning game endurance test.

DISC 5: Sept. 21, 2001: Regular season vs Atlanta Braves --The emotionally charged first game in New York City after the 9/11 terrorist attacks was electrified by Mike Piazza's 8th inning 2-run home run.

DISC 6: May 19, 2006: Inter-League vs New York Yankees--David Wright's walk-off hit snatched victory away from the cross-town rival Yankees in this classic see-saw battle.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any Mets' fan... July 15, 2008
Simply put, it is a must have for any New York Mets fan. While I wish there was more drama and build up to some of the excerpts - Todd Pratt's walk-off homerun against the Diamondbacks as an example - I couldn't be more pleased with the purchase. It will be something I can use to look back on the past and remember with fondness, as well as something to get me through the rough times when the present isn't going so well...

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely essential June 9, 2011
By Greg B.
Verified Purchase
I am not a Mets fan, but am a fan of baseball alltogether and I recently ordered this set, mostly for both the 1986 games. Plus I always enjoy seeing great games I've never seen before. I've gotta say, now, that I was so moved...almost to tears, by the 1st game at Shea after the 9/11 attacks. Whereas most MLB productions games go right to the first pitch, this one shows the complete pregame honouring those who passed during Sep 11. You can see the emotion on the faces of the players and fans before the game...realizing that everyone there knew at least someone who was a victim. Tears in the eyes of some players and many fans. This set has many great GAMES, but this one in particular is a piece of history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable for Mets fans May 17, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a nice collection of some games from Shea. It's enjoyable to watch the actual games, not packaged highlights. Nothing quite like Vin Scully and game 6 of 1986 World Series!
Some good selections for inclusion and the packaging is also a plus.
