This review is from: The New York Mets Essential Games Of Shea Stadium (DVD)
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.

Again MLB missed the boat becausae they could've included the Pratt home from 99 or the Agbayani homerun from 2000 against Sf or even the bobby Jones 1 hitter from the same series or the 1983 Tom Seaver return to Shea for the Mets

Good point, especially since the '86 Series game is already available.

It looks like the Pratt HR is on the dvd as an extra, not the full game.
Good call on them missing Seaver's return and Bobby Jone's gem against SF.

the Pratt game should've been included on this instead of them putting the Buckner game on as it was already released on the 1986 WOrld Series set.

I must say that I'm disappointed in the set. Nothing from the '73 series against Cinncinatti? Seaver's near perfect game against Chicago in '69? Steve Henderson's walk-off homer against San Fran. in the 9th in 1980? Someone mentioned Pratt's homer, I think. So many missed memories. Someone didn't do their homework. Sorry. Won't be buying this one.

Why not put the entire 1969 series in a box set and include the Mets three-game sweep of the Braves in the first NLCS? I've seen beautiful live clips of rookie Nolan Ryan overpowering
Orioles great Boog Powell. AMAZIN'!!! Is MLB that clueless, or is most of the live footage simply no longer available? If most or all of the live footage IS available, MLB apparently doesn't understand it is sitting on a potential goldmine. . . I know many people my age who would pay top dollar for the set I've described . . . In fact, I can remember feigning sickness with my older brother in order to stay home and watch the three day games from Shea . . . Ah, memories . . .

I would assume the 1969 is available because you can find copies of all 5 games on the bootleg market. However I've never seen the Braves series available from 1969. Since their isn't much available pre 1975 because of the expense of taping back then.

I too hope the '69 Series someday becomes available. FYI, you can download Game 5 from iTunes for $1.99 right now. Transferring it to DVD takes a little creativity, but it is available (and possible).

They had the '69 Series (only games 2-5 since they're the games the Mets won) on SNY as Mets Classics. I recorded all 4 games. And I have the '86 Series DVD set. So discs 1-3 in this are useless to me. If I can see it cheap on ebay, someone selling it used I may pick it up.
