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.
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

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.
Unlike the 1975 World Series boxset, every minute of the games are here, and it's a delight for fans of classic baseball. I'm not even a Yankees or a Dodgers fan, and I'm having lots of fun going through the games here on this DVD set.
I suspect most sports fans will enjoy this presentation.
