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.Read more ›
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
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.
