The 1985 World Series championship was the crowning moment for the Kansas City Royals franchise. In 1985 the club overcame a late season deficit to win the Division trailed Toronto in the ALCS 3 games to 1 to rally for the pennant and capped the delirious ride with World Series history-making victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Under the even-keeled guidance of manager Dick Howser and led by veteran stars George Brett Frank White Dan Quisenberry Willie Wilson and the precocious pitching of Bret Saberhagen the Royals persevered and conquered their cross-state opponents. The seven games in this remarkable DVD collection showcase the rollercoaster of intra-state emotions as the Cardinals flew out to grab three quick wins only to have the Royals capture the final three games in oh-so-dramatic fashion.

It was a worthy purchase.
The series is packed with drama throughout and even though I knew how it ended I found myself involved in every pitch.
Perhaps the most valuable aspect of the set is watching George Brett bat roughly 30 times. His stance and swing are still unparalleled.
The audio and video are far from perfect, but they are infinitely better than my betamax copies of the same games.
The extras are interesting, especially those that tell the story of the journey of both teams to the series. I only wish the extras on George Brett and Bret Saberhagen would have been longer than several minutes. Had they done full blown featurettes on these guys it would be a five star collection.
nice away uniforms from the royals
george brett leaves everything on the field
gutsy performances all around
addendum .. as i continue to watch more of these world series games in the MLB collection, the 79 and 85 series are holding steady as dark horse surprises, among my favorites. i didn't really expect to like either one as much as i have. as far as 85 is concerned, it's really interesting to me to watch the long suffering royals, and brett in particular, play their guts out. they were bridesmaids so many years in the 70s and 80s. also, going back further in history, i wasn't aware that some of the civil war's most vicious fighting was in around this area, almost like croatia serbia, which gives this series even more of a footnote. besides those comments, ... it's just a treat to be able to go back and watch games this old. the astroturf, sure it's awful, but there are some aspects of the game back then which compensate. for example .. men shaped like humans, rather than steroid-injected, bloated super heroes. everyone back then looks like a human being. these were also two of the more beautiful stadia in baseball history, even if one was a donut and both had fake turf. the announcers were fantastic. jim palmer, a young tim mc carver ... really great conversations.
i've just started watching the newly released 84 series and that's also a pleasure, although the series isn't as competitive.
