28 Years in Waiting!!! Make Phillies All-Time Top Selling DV

"The holidays will be a little brighter as I watch the Phillies win the World Series again & again. Watching this over again reminded me of the how dominant this Phillies team was. (10-3 in playoffs) I'll admit my doubt that Brad Lidge would stay perfect the entire season & postseason!! Being able to hear Harry Kalas & the local Philly guys is by far the best feature of this DVD collection. Yes, MLB does get a little carried away with it's logo.
While I know that the MLB wanted a Dodgers-Red Sox series, show them the incredible fan base we have in Philadelphia and make this the best-selling baseball DVD collection of all-time. Philadelphia really needed this World Championship.
Phillies fans can relive:
* Cole Hamel's incredible pitching and Jimmy Rollins consistent defense
* Joe Blanton's HR and Ryan Howard's 2 HR game
* McCarver & Buck reminding us how the Phillies we're 0-99 with RISP.
* The only postseason game ever stopped & started up a few days later
* Chase Utley's fake throw
* The contributions by everybody who had a Phillies uniform on !!!
* Listen to Kalas, Wheeler, McCarthy, LA, and Sarge! (instead of FOX)
This is a tremendous collection for a true Phillies fan! 8 wonderful DVDs!!
World Champions! (sorry Chase, had to keep it clean for the kids)"

"Just got this set today and only watched a brief portion to see how the quality was. It's impressive. But was it really necessary to put the Major League Baseball Logo right below the FOX logo throughout the entire game and series?? It's a bit of a distraction."
Reliving every moment of a new era in Phillies' history

"The DVD format has done wonders for sports fans. Prior to DVD, the best you'd find were VHS cassettes of NFL Films blooper reels. With this set, I can relive every moment of NLCS Game 4 and 5, and every game of the World Series in widescreen format.
The packaging design is fantastic, with stats and facts on each DVD case. This is a really nice set to cherish for sports fans that were starved for a championship team.
It's the gift I've been waiting for since Joe Carter hit the home run that won the Toronto Blue Jays the 1993 World Series championship over the Phils."
A Wonderful Walk Down Memory Lane - Well Done!

"As the pricing on this started to dip from the initial offering, Harry The K died while preparing for a 2009 game broadcast in Washington. I ordered this set although I already owned the single disk World Series summary.
The set is great, starting with the season highlights disk and going through all the games, beginning with the last games of the NLCS. Having the choice of which broadcasters to listen to during viewing is a nice option that keeps the viewing fresh. And it's surprising how quickly the memory muddles things up, like who got what hit when. I'm sure that is due to how stressful it was to watch the first time, but it's a real joy to watch for a life-long Phillies fan.
