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:

As a Sox fan and an old baseball game junkie - I have about 30 dvds with old games on them, I figured it would be hard for me not to want this. BUT the game selection is uninspiring. I already have 2 of them (75 WS GM 6 & the game from 1967).

Why would they include the entire game from 2007 with the 4 homeruns in a row when that WAS the hi-lite of the game while only showing Bill Mueller's walk off HR from the game on 7/24/04? The 7/24/04 game with the A-Rod brawl and the great Red Sox comeback is the one that should be shown in its entirety - it is pretty much my favorite regular season game I've ever watched.

The only one I'd really pay to see again is Pedro in the '99 ALCS - so I may try to pick this up on the cheap on Ebay some day.

Mlb certainly missed the boat on this collection. As two of the games on this set have already been released on other sets with the 1967 game on the impossible dream dvd and the game six on the 1975 World Series DVD. Their were certainly better choices overs the years for MLB to pick from that would've enhanced the experience for a Red Sox fan. Examples of this are The june 1977 Yankee game featuring Billy Martin pulling Reggie Jackson from the game and the altercation that soon followed. I understand why they wouldnt want to put the playoff on their from 1978. Another example of a game they could've put on their was the Derek Lowe no hitter or the Clay Buchholz no hitter from last year. Or for that matter any game except the 2004 ALCS featuring David Ortiz driving in a game winning run in their last at bat.

How could MLB screw this collection up so badly? Didn't they think that the 1967 games was already included on the NESN video honoring the Impossible Dream? What about one of the World Series games or another game from the pennant race of that year?

The 1975 Game 6 is a must - even if it is in the 1975 WS Box Set.

What about Yaz's final game at Fenway? Or, the game where Reggie Jackson got yanked and humiliated on national tv in 1977.

As much as I hated the result, the 1978 playoff game with the Yankees was one of the most dramatic games in history. so what if we lost, what a game!

What about the 1986 ALCS clincher - Game #7?

Sorry, but the four homer game last season was interesting, but far from dramatic.

How could they not include the A-Rod \fight/Mueller walk-off game from 2004? That was a classic?

1975 ALCS vs. A's?
The Clemens 20K game is a good one.

The 1999 PEdro game was great - PEdro at his best. I'd pay for that one.

I just think they could have found some better games for this set.

Here is a disk set that captures some of the greatest games from the "Pahk" meant for Red Sox Nation or any big fan of baseball. The games are complete coverege, so one gets to see what happened in the first almost dozen innings BEFORE Fisk's magical "Stay Fair, Stay Fair" walk off. One disc meets the criteria because of how Martinez pitched in the '99 All Star, but after the first few innings there are many other contemporary heroes to watch.
By far...for the Nation....the single reason to buy this set is for the Bonus features. Seeing the footage of #9, then his appearance at the All Star Game in 1999 at Fenway. Enjoy more clips from our heroes like Yaz in '67 thru "The Greatest Comeback in the History of Sports". Grab some peanuts, Cracker Jacks & dust off the New Era cap and revel in the magical moments of Baseball's most historical field & team!
