Outstanding Superbowl Set, but.....,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NFL America's Game Super Bowl I-XL (DVD)
I bought the Superbowl Collector's Set and intended to return America's Game, not even cracked open but still factory sealed. The reason was the reviews that I read which said the Collector's Set was action/highlights and America's Game was more interviews and extras with highlights tossed in here and there. Well, thanks to a great wife and a gamble, I have both sets. I don't spend money liberally so I had to think about this. I did not return America's Game; I opened it because the reviews that I read led me to believe that both were great for different reasons. I can say this. Having both sets is like two sides of one golden coin. Both are beautiful in different ways. Each has something the other lacks. America's Game is full of highlights but uses them to illustrate the stories instead of using highlights to tell the stories. And it is FULL of stories you probably never heard during the football seasons and Superbowls of their times! These is a great set, just like the Collector's set. Buy America's Game for the stories and extras; buy the Collector's set if you just want to watch season and Superbowl coverage highlights with that classic NFL narration and music. One word of warning: like the Collector's Set, this set suffers from a quality control issue. The packaging is done poorly. There are scratched disks in both of these sets, some are pretty bad and I did not think they could possibly run. They all do, at least all that I have looked at. I don't know why this is, unless these are returned sets and they shouldn't be as both were factory sealed and I bought new sets. Rough handling when being packed at the factory? I was extremely careful with them as with all cd's and dvd's, since I HATE a skipping/damaged disk. So far these are all OK and I'll keep them; I may get burned someday when I look at a disc and find one skips or whatever. I'll take my chances since these are worth it and I don't have time to preview 60 dvd's. But now I can watch them for a looonnnggggg time.
