The long-available highlight film (included as an extra) naturally fell short in capturing the excitement and drama of this epic Game 7 clash between the underdog Pirates and the overpowering Yankees, who were arguably at the peak of their long and storied dynasty. In fact, the Bombers outscored the Pirates 55-27 in the Series, and Game 7 was a high scoring back-and-forth battle royal that alternately seemed hopeless for both teams at various points, something which has become overshadowed by Mazeroski's home run. The formidable outfield arms of Roberto Clemente and Roger Maris figured prominently in this game, as did the baserunning agility of Mickey Mantle, Casey Stengel's predilection for changing pitchers, and a less than perfectly manicured Forbes infield, which famously victimized Yankees shortstop Tony Kubek.Read more ›
Disc 1 has the entire broadcast with the TV Play-By-Play and also an option to watch it with the Radio Play-Play-Play. Quality is very good.
Disc 2 has the official WS Highlight film (there is a better source that has been digitally restored--from BaseballDirect.com) but nevertheless, the WS highlight film is good quality.
The news reels look like they have been digitally restored.
By only major criticism is that the 1960 Season Highlight film is only an excerpt of the full 30 minute version (the full version is also part of the 1960 WS Highlight film from BaseballDirect.com).
I still I would recommend purchase of this DVD.
