Product Description

Powered by the red-clad, white-towel waving passionate fan-base, the 2006 Cardinals gave us an unparalleled rollercoaster of emotions that swelled to an improbable end as Busch Stadium staged an unforgettable celebration after the Game Five World Series® victory. The St. Louis Cardinals® stumbled toward the postseason and provided little indication of the magic to follow. Yet, after defeating the pitching-rich San Diego Padres® in the NLDS® the underdog Cardinals stunned the New York Mets® ending with a dramatic Game 7 capped by a 9th inning for the ages. Every play, every crafted pitch, clutch hit, strategic maneuver, and historic performance of the 2006 World Series® is preserved forever with this remarkable, one-of-a-kind DVD anthology. The complete game broadcast of the final two victories over the Mets and all five World Series games are in this collection ready for your viewing pleasure. With more than 20 hours of game action and bonus footage this DVD set will become the centerpiece of your Cardinals 2006 World Series library. Your enjoyment is intensified with SleeveStatsTM: the perfect companion to the ultimate baseball DVD experience, offering official stats, trivia, and game summaries right on the each DVD’s cover.

Completist baseball fans will certainly enjoy reliving the full story of the 2006 World Series in The St. Louis Cardinals 2006 World Series Collectors Edition. Not only does the eight-disc set include all five games in the world championship series between the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers, it sets the stage for the contest with a terrific preface: Games 5 and 7 of the Cards' NLCS (National League Championship Series) win over the New York Mets. One can watch Cardinals starter Jeff Weaver (in Game 5) earn his second win of the playoffs (and first of the NLCS), or Jeff Suppan (in Game 7) allow only one run on five hits in 15 innings pitched. (He was named the 2006 NLCS MVP.)

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

First off, I'll say that I am not a Cardinals fan. This is a great DVD set, the best that A&E has done, although there are some minor visual imperfections, but overall the quality is very good. This set is the first without the MLB watermark logo, which seemed to be a problem with the other sets. These games are also the first to come with a spanish audio track, which is a nice touch.
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.

This DVD set has all 5 games with Detroit, and games 5 and 7 of the Mets series. Of course, commercial free with great audio and video. World Series victories don't come around often, and this set offers a great way to preserve those memories. I have been watching replays of these games on Fox Midwest, but twenty years from now (when the Cards have wrapped up 5 or 6 more WS victories thanks to coach of the year 2021 Albert Pujols) these games will still be preserved for me, long after they are regulars on cable TV. The bonus DVD is neat too, with interviews from many on the team. A lot of funny stuff, with people spraying champagne all over eachother while trying to interview. Good, candid stuff that you don't get to see during the course of a regular season. If you or your loved one is a serious Cardinals fan like I am, this is a must have!!!

I have to say I was a bit worried when a few said the quality wasnt good...well i dont have hd tv but I think The quality is great and I ABSOLUTLY love that i can listen to the Cardinals Broadcasters Shannon and Rooney! I guess its because they are our announcers and are just so exciting to listen to. I love Joe Buck and Tim McCarver and i know they have to be "partial" but I love my Cardinals and loved being able to listen to the radio side! Wish they did have more of the WS parade celebration especially in Busch after the parade but that can live in the memories of those who were there or watched it on TV! Sad thing about it...Albert, was just hard watching him for the last time as a Cardinal. With that being said...game 6 was the BEST!! This was one of the best WS I have seen! WTG CARDINALS!! 12 IN 12!!
