5 star series....3 star DVD collection ..a 4 star review

"Hi Folks, I'm not a Yankee or Diamondback supporter per se...but this was a historic and terrific series so I picked it up immediately and have to report that this SET is a let down.
Unlike many of the other series sets this ONLY has the complete games from the series, which given that it was a full seven is acceptable but something more of the lead up would have been better for context.
Also..DON'T THROW AWAY YOUR 1 DISC 2001 MLB DVD...its not on this set..
the bonus feature they tout as "Destiny In The Desert" (2001 Official World Series Film) isn't the hour plus movie but a scant 9 Minutes!! what kind of "Film" is that? Featurette...maybe...but calling that a film is ridiculous...its about as long as the championship acceptance feature..
the bonus interviews Don't feature Schilling or Johnson?
Hey..if you are a Diamondbacks fan ...you have to have this...but its nothing compared to the 1988 Dodger set or the 1977 Yankee sets...but more on par with the 1975 REDS set...but that was understandable...I just figured they had less good material 30 years ago..there is no reason that this set couldn't have been fleshed out a bit more.
At least this tremendous series is there to enjoy...geez when you consider all the hall of famers on that field..wow..and not to forget that CLemens and Johnson are a couple of the ALL TIME strikeout kings...and Schilling will be in the Hall as well..it ended the most recent Yankee Dynasty...and came on the heels of 911...this series just deserved more in my opinion."

"I bought this along with the Cincinnati Reds and Boston Red Sox series as birthday presents for my son. He is a baseball fanatic and remembers watching the Reds/Boston when he was only 12 in 1975. He felt the D-Back/Yankee 2001 series came the closest to the excitement of that series. He loves both and now him and his 2 sons are watching some of the great players of the past that are in the Hall of Fame along with future Hall of Fame players. Having the DVD's of the old World Series available is wonderful in that the younger generation can watch the players in action instead of just hearing what is said or short news reel clips of them. MLB is doing something right with the issuance of this collection."
