Editorial Reviews

The 1984 World Seriesr is treasured by Tigers players and fans as this Fall Classic victory punctuated a historic season. Highlighted by Jack Morris's no-hitter in the season's fourth game, the Tigers roared through April and May, posting a staggering 35-5 record. Detroit then capped the remarkable year by winning the 1984 World Series. A&Er Home Video with Major League Baseball opens the video archives and presents every game of this timeless Detroit Fall Classicr. From the opening win in San Diego to the glorious, power-packed Game 5 celebration in Detroit, this extraordinary DVD collection features the complete television broadcast of every 1984 World Series game. Led by manager Sparky Anderson, the 1984 Tigers featured the gritty power of Kirk Gibson; the brilliant pitching of Jack Morris; two American League All-Star infielders, shortstop Alan Trammell and second baseman Lou Whitaker; and American League MVP and Cy Young Award winner Willie Hern ndez. A special DVD audio feature allows fans to watch the World Series television broadcast and listen to Ernie Harwell on the Tigers Radio Network!

For years, I've been waiting for the 1984 World Series to show up on DVD. Frankly, I thought it would never happen--despite having one of the most remarkable seasons in MLB history, this 1984 Tigers team is still inexplicably and wrongly dismissed by fans and sportswriters who (a) still regret that the Chicago Cubs, despite taking a 2-0 lead in the N.L.C.S., would fail to win the pennant after a remarkable San Diego Padres comeback, and (b) preferred to focus on the riots which occurred in the streets of Detroit in the aftermath of the Series victory.

Needless to say, there is very little mention of the Cubs and no mention of the riots in this set. To finally own all five of these games on DVD (or any medium) is a dream come true. However, as this is the first complete World Series DVD box that I have ever purchased, I was taken aback by certain aspects of this set--I don't know if my expectations were too high; I'll just discuss the thoughts I had as I made my way through these games.

First of all, I was disappointed by the packaging. Other such collections, including the "Essential Games Of The Detroit Tigers" box, very nicely packaged each individual disc in a slim DVD case complete with artwork and a boxscore. This set, in contrast, crams all five discs into a single DVD case; box scores are included in an enclosed booklet. Still--no big deal.

According to the outer packaging, the set includes "RADIO CALLS--listen to local radio broadcasts for all five World Series games." This was good news--a highlight of the "Essential Games Of The Detroit Tigers" box was the inclusion of the original WJR radio broadcast with Ernie Harwell and Paul Carey as an alternate audio track for Game 5.

Don't get me wrong, because I enjoyed the complete games and no commercials and the speed of the game. However I did expect Vin Scully and Joe Garigiola on all the broadcasts, like my VHS tapes. They only did 3 series together, why trash so many of their innings? The jumping back and forth from Buck and Mussburger is annoying. Give us the radio "option" don't force sudden changes on us please.
Secondly the video quality of game 3- is worse than my 30 year old VHS tapes.
Lastly, the MLB watermark is so big it covers crucial parts of the picture! The purity of 1984 is no screen banners, scores on the screen or adds behind home plate. Shrink it down.
The 1986, 1987, 1988, and 2001 box sets should be the standard to follow. They are worth every penny. When you do 80,81,82,83,89& 90, and I hope you do, please consider us. Thanks

This is a great dvd set for all true Det Tiger fans. It takes me back to happier times for a young baseball fan. I remember listening to almost ever game on the radio after their 9-0 start. If you lived it you know how great this team was and they had a different hero every night. True champions and it was displayed by this 5 game World Series route. Nice effort and hats off to the Padres especially Kurt B. So many great moments for Tigers fans on this dvd series.

Very happy with this dvd. I was born in the mid 60s so do not have a problem with the picture quality of the 30 year old series. I was especially pleased that you can get the tv commentary as well as the local radio commentary depending on which city the game is played. It was wonderful to hear Ernie Harwell on the games played in Detroit.

My only slight complaint is that MLB didn't put some extras in this set. For example the 1986 NY Mets dvd is 9 discs with the full game 6 clincher of the NLCS v Astros. So one or two games from the 1985 ALCS would have been the icing on the cake for me!

There is a MLB watermark in the top right hand corner on the screen. I'm to intent in watching the action to really notice it. But yes it is there.

These DVD's are wonderful. Such great memories for me. I was a bit sad that Ernie Harwell's radio play by play was only on Detroit's home games. I would have loved to hear his play by play during the San Diego home games. Still very worth having them.

I was expecting one dvd, I was so surprised when I found 5 dvds, all 5 games of that series, it far exceeded my expectations, if you're a Detroit Tigers fan this will be a treasured keepsake, 2 discs contain radio broadcasts of the series to go with the network broadcast ENJOY.

I loved to relive the magic when the Roar Returned in '84. This DVD series is only of the five World Series' games. The only negative was that I wished there would have been highlights of the regular season as well as the playoffs.

The 5 disc DVD set includes all 5 games of the 1984 World Series in their original network format from NBC. The games have no real extras except for a paper insert in the inside cover and an option to listen to the radio broadcast dubbed over the video instead of the NBC audio. The games in Detroit have the legendary Ernie Harwell and Paul Carey at the mikes while the games played in San Diego offer the team of the great Jack Buck and Brent Musberger for audio. Other than that there is not much else to describe. The game 5 victory does not include much in the way of post game celebration except for about 30 seconds or so and it certainly would have been nice to have included the post game celebration in the locker room. The overall video quality is average at best and in some spots is not very good. One would expect a little better video quality of games of this magnitude played in a sport as prominent as MLB in the modern era. It also would have been nice to have some extras such as the ALCS clincher against Kansas City but overall it is nice to have this series in its entirety for the watching after 29 years especially with the loss of Tiger Stadium and to hear the voices of Ernie Harwell and Paul Carey again but it certainly could have been done better for the reasons listed above. All in all though, for the true Tiger fan, it is great to see and hear, and worth the purchase.
