The Cardinals, going into the World Series with the second fewest number of victories (83) ever in a full regular season, nevertheless had a spirited showing where it counted. Even if one isn't inclined to watch entire games over again, it's fun to skip around to such highlights as Cardinal Albert Pujols' two-out, two-run homer in the third inning of Game 1, or the Tigers' 41-year-old starter Kenny Rogers win in Game 2 (making him the oldest starter to win a game in World Series history). Then, of course, there's World Series MVP David Eckstein's three doubles in Game 4 (the all-time record is four), and Cardinals' manager Tony LaRussa's footnote to baseball history by becoming one of only two managers to win World Series titles in both leagues. The games look great-exactly the way they appeared and sounded on their original television broadcasts-and each disc appears in its own holder, which is covered in facts and statistics worth noting. The eighth disc, a "Bonus DVD," includes the clubhouse celebration, trophy and MVP presentation, highlights from the NL Central Division and NL Division Series, player interviews, highlights from the Cardinals' 1982 World Series victory, opening ceremonies of the new Busch Stadium, and a Spanish audio track from the original, live Fox En Espanol broadcast. --Tom Keogh

For those of that don't have any of the other sets, each game is divided into the innings that are easy to get to. Each case of the DVD has interesting stats on the front, a box score on the back and the play-by-play inside.
The extras are also very nicely put together.
This set is not just for Cardinal fans, but for those that want to preserve a little bit of baseball history.
