Product Description

3- YEARS AFTER TWO CLASSIC RIVALS MET FOR THE 9TH TIME IN THE WORLD SERIES, FANS OF THE NEW YORK YANKEES CAN RELIVE THE GLORY ALL OVER AGAIN - FRO THE TENSE FIRST GAME TO REGGIE JACKSON'S RECORD TYING 3 HOMERUN GAME.

Amazon.com

It was one of the first signs of the modern era of baseball when New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner took advantage of new free-agency rules to restock his team. One of his acquisitions, outfielder Reggie Jackson, proved himself worthy of his self-label as "the straw that stirs the drink" by powering a record five home runs in the 1977 World Series, breaking a 15-year Yankee championship drought and branding him "Mr. October." The 1977 New York Yankees Collector's Edition set has all six games against the Los Angeles Dodgers, plus the clinching fifth game of the ALCS against the Kansas City Royals (featuring a late Yankee comeback and a brawl between third basemen Graig Nettles and George Brett). Also included are new interviews with a number of the players, including Reggie Jackson, Willie Randolph, Ron Guidry, Lou Piniella, Chris Chambliss, Mickey Rivers, Roy White, Dusty Baker, and Burt Hooton, and some footage of the memorable mid-season squabble between Jackson and manager Billy Martin, plus SleeveStats that print the box score, inning-by-inning summaries, and trivia on each DVD Thinpak case. As a time capsule, it's interesting to watch the players in action--not only future Hall of Famer Jackson (remember how in his three-homer effort in the clinching game, he actually started the Yankees comeback with a base on balls?), pre-Cy Young winner Guidry, and future managers Randolph, Piniella, and Baker. It's also instructive to watch a different era of the game, one that saw Yankees closer Sparky Lyle pitch 3-2/3 innnings for the game 1 win, and umpires who would watch pitches bounce in the dirt without batting an eye, rather than obsessively replacing anything with a hint of a scuff. And even though their team lost, longtime Dodger fans will enjoy watching the squad that boasted four 30-homer hitters, future Hall of Famer Don Sutton, and the record-setting infield of Garvey, Lopes, Russell, and Cey. --David Horiuchi

As mentioned, the picture in almost every game chops out the bottom part of the on-screen graphics. It is rather frustrating. Game Six of the World Series and Game Five of the ALCS are the best as far as seeing the graphics. Unfortunately, the video quality isn't very good for Game Six and the ALCS game is missing parts of the game. It isn't missing much, but enough so you'll notice. Also, the audio fluctuates during games. Keith Jackson, Tom Seaver, and Howard Cosell handle announcing duties during ABC's broadcast of the World Series. As a nice touch, A&E and MLB Productions placed the local Yankees telecast of the ALCS game on this set. The announcing for that game is handled by Bill White, Frank Messer, and the one and only Phil Rizzuto. Bottom line, this DVD set is a worthy purchase, but you might not want to pay full price.

"Reggie! Reggie! Reggie!"

Those who love baseball or even just like it often have that one era that absolutely defined the game for them; for me, it was, and always will be the 1977 New York Yankees - the time of Thurman Munson (R.I.P.), Bucky Dent, Lou Piniella, Graig Nettles, Billy Martin and my all-time favortie baseball hero (to this day), REGGIE JACKSON!!!

From my perspective and my memories, I recall that in 1977, the eyes of the world seem to momentarily focus on New York City - some crazy mountain climber (can't remember his name) decided to scale one of the twin towers of the World Trade Center and was fined $1.10 for all 110 stories of the building, the Son of Sam serial killer was still at large, NYC nearly tore itself apart during the summer blackout, disco and Studio 54 ruled the night and, oh yeah, Jackson's three (3) legendary home runs during Game 6 of the World Series against the L.A. Dodgers. They would repeat their World Series victory against the Dodgers once again a year later in 1978.

Despite the poor picture quality at time (these TV telecasts are 30 years-old; what more can you expect?), I was in awe of watching my classic baseball heroes take the field again. I had also completely forgotten that when Game 6 ended and the Yankess won it, Reggie had to literally run for his life off of the field in order to avoid being mauled by the joyous fans who swarmed the field.

I'll always remember and I'll never forget!

This review is based on having viewed Disk One of the set. The DVD starts with a disclaimer saying the quality will not be good but the best available masters have been used. What that means is the bottom of the image is cut off (often making the last line of the player's stats unreadable) and the image is shifted down slightly, leaving a slight black bar at the top of the screen. Yes, my TV is adjusted properly. The MLB logo has also been watermarked into the top right of the image, but that was to be expected after viewing previous MLB releases. The video is fairly grainy, but even more troubling is the complete loss of sound for nearly a minute during the middle of the game. Other notes: This is the ABC broadcast with Howard Cosell and Tom Seaver doing the play-by-play, but without the bumpers, pre-game etc. Bottom line: Definitely worth watching for historical reasons, but you may want to rent before buying.

Wow talk about exaggeration. When I read some of these reviews I was not expecting much when I first viewed this set. I think the most neutral observer would say that this is a good set. Looking first at the technical issues and picture, people have to understand that this tapes were recorded some 30 years ago and especially with some of the less notable games quite literally sat on a shelf somewhere. It isn't like today where everything is archived on digital. The tape is damaged by exposure to elements on the edges so when this set was produced they probably cropped it so that there wouldn't be a hazy ring around the picture. The bottom line, you lose maybe a line of in game statistics that it. The image on the screen still looks pretty much the way it did when it first aired. One review said something like the players on the screen have no feet to which I reply were we looking at the same thing??? As for the ALCS game 5, outside of the last outs of the game when is the last time the network work showed it? I can't remember. Yea the picture isn't perfect but its still entertaining. As for game 6 there are a few glitches but all the key moments especially Reggie's homers are crystal clear.

Now onto the content of the DVDs. This set gives you a chance to see the actual games as they aired not the MLB highlights films which drive me crazy because of the lack of play by play and memorable calls. There are at least three great games in the set, ALCS game 5, World Series Games 1 and 6. The other games are also pretty exciting there really is only one boring game and that is the laugher L.A. won in Game 5.

All in all this was a great series. I hope they do one for 1978. As for an extra game- I think we have all seen the 78 AL East playoff- great great game! - my suggestion though would be to include ALCS game 3 when Munson hit the 460' 2 run monster shot off Doug Bird to put the Yanks on their way to victory.

This is a must own for true Yankee fans. Having been at the game for Reggie's homers as an 11 year old with my Dad I never got to see the tv broadcast so this was special.

Granted it's a commitment to watch all the games, but to see our beloved Thurman stand behind the plate in full gear, to watch Mickey twirl his bat and limp around like a invalid, to see Nettles dive, Sparky chew, a young Guidry bounce, Reggie's unforgettable swing and trot, Billy's hand in back pocket walk and...ah, the list goes on and on. whatever you need is here so buy this for your archives - you owe it to yourself.

Besides the whole crew of Yankee greats, it's interesting to watch how tv used to be with single shot camera angles and lousy graphics and to listen to Howard Cosell's unique commentary. After a thesaurus fueled rant by Cosell, a bewildered Tom Seaver says "Uh...i think i speak for everybody when i say "Huh?"" - classic!

Another gem is in the 2nd game (i think) when Yeager goes to the screen on a foul pop and the mic picks up a fan yelling plain as a day "Hey Ump! You Suck!!"

this is a documentary to my childhood - a time so special to all who lived it. it will NEVER be like this again.
