"Great games from the Stadium, quility is great and the special features are ok. Bottom line, I would replace the Mr. November game and Mr. October game since those games are already on DVD. But it's a "Must have" if your a yankee fan."
Great DVD Set!!!

"This is a great set celebrating the greatest Yankees games in historic Yankee Stadium. Just being able to have "Donnie Baseball's" last game at the Stadium is awesome. What a game that was... The 1995 Division Series vs. Seattle where he hit .417 and who can forget the incredible two games of the 2001 WS vs. Arizona. Game 4 is here experience all the magic again from that night when Tino Martinez homers with two out in the ninth and Jeter wins it with his November magic. Reggie's three HR game from 1977 is also here as is Chris Chambliss' HR to win the 1976 pennant. If you're a true blue Yankee fan as myself this 6-disc set is for you. YANKEE STADIUM FOREVER!!!"
Like the 2009 Yankees, worth every penny!

"The marketplace prices make this a steal even if two of the games are available in other sets. To me the Seattle game and the Aaron Boone game alone are worth the price of admission.
The Seattle game especially as it shows you the difference that 14 years makes. In that game you had 57,000 people chanting expletives at Ken Griffey Jr in unison and the Mariners had to be pulled off the field after Mattingly homered as there was a near riot. Last week, you could not get half the Stadium to coordinate on "Who's Your Daddy".
But I digress. All of the games are classics in one way or another and are sure to make any Yankee fan's day. The presentation is nice in a metal box instead of cheap cardboard that you normally find.
Four stars because two of the games are available in other sets and the games are not widescreen."
