PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES WORLD SERIES VINTA
Phillies World Series Years
Thomas Magnum | NJ, USA | 12/27/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)
"The Phillies have been in existence for 123 years and have only made four World Series appearances, so this DVD is something of an anathema for a Phillie fans. It is both sweet and bittersweet as it celebrates their greatest successes, especially the 1980 championship, but also magnifies the futility of the team (the Marlins have been a team for only ten years yet have won one more title than the Phils). That being said, this is a fine encapsulation of the championship years. It would great if they would release a dvd of the complete 1980 World Series as it was a classic series and would a must own for any fan of the team."
Not What You Expect

"The label fooled me: these are not the games. These are truncated highlights.
Additionally, Major League Baseball, in their typically obnoxious in-your-face ways, have inserted their large logo onto the top right of the screen. It is extremely annoying and makes for a constant distraction. The games float around while the logo remains still - sticks out like a sore thumb. The good thing is that it cements in your mind that the MLB monopoly is worthy of contempt."
Bad Info from Thomas Magnum

"This is a terrific DVD for Phillies fan, but my main reason for writing is to correct something Thomas Magnum said above. At the time he wrote his review, the Phillies had won 5 NL pennants (of course, the total is now 6 following their 2008 World Series championship), including 1915, which was not including on the DVD, most likely because there is little if any video footage. I understand this information does not really change his review, but it bothers me when someone writing something for (potentially) a large audience is so sloppy with the facts."
