A Must Have for Cardinals Fans
J. Inman | Lodi, California United States | 05/01/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I got my set last week and the only time I'm not watching it is when I'm watching us play live.

It's great to have all of these classic games on DVD and be able to experience once again all of these classic moments that helped shape the history of the franchise and Busch Stadium itself.

The games are presented as they were seen on telivision with the commercial breaks edited out. The footage was taken from the original master tapes and do contain some minor visual and audio imperfections, as mentioned at the beginning of each disc. They are nothing to worry about however as they don't take away any of the joy of being able to see these games again.

Each game comes in it's own slim case and the covers for each game have the box scores and other stats and trivia facts.

The sixth disc, game 7 of the 2004 NLCS, contains all the special features including Hall of Fame moments, interviews and the Fox footage of Jim Edmonds' dramatic game winning homer in Game 6.

This is a set that no Cardinals fan with a DVD player should be without."
Bob Gibson vs 31-game winner McLain in 68WS opener!!!!
David Hagen | Washington, DC | 05/11/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In 1968, I was ten years old and living with my grandparents. I can remember sprinting home from school to watch the end of the first game of the World Series with the pitching match-up of 31-game winner Denny McLain and NL strikeout and ERA king Bob Gibson. By the time I got home, McLain was already out of the game! Of course, Gibson goes on to set the WS strikeout record dramatically in the top of the ninth inning. What's so great now is that I'm watching it 40 years later on a 42" plasma and not Grandma's crappy old b&w tv! You can see the sweat dripping off Gibson in that HOT Busch Stadium October game. See two classic teams (Kaline, Maris, Brock, Gibson, Flood, McCarver), hear Curt Gowdy and Harry Cary describe the action, look into the stands and see everyone in white shirts and skinny black ties!! See Gibson strikeout 17 Tigers! This game alone is worth the price of the set! You won't be disappointed!"
Wonderful set of DVD's

"I purchases this DVD set for my husband for our 5 year anniversary. He absolutely loves it! Hours upon hours of Cardinals Baseball. What could be better!"
Worth every penny for Cards fans!

"At less than $10 per disc, this is a great collection for Cardinals fans. It will bring back a lot of memories!

Each fan will have a "favorite" amongst this group of 6 games, but my favorite was the 1982 World Series Game 7. After Bruce Sutter closes out the Cards winner, you get to see thousands of fans storm the field as "We Win" displays on the outfield scoreboard. I have vivid memories of this scene, even though I was only 5 years old when it happened.

One bummer is that these are the national broadcasts so they don't include local announcers on the call. But don't worry, as most of the great calls are captured as bonuses to the 6th disc. For example, the 1985 game with Ozzie Smith hitting the bottom-of-ninth winner just isn't the same without Jack Buck calling the hit (Go crazy folks!). But the bonus material includes the complete at-bat with Jack Buck on the call, including the announcers saying "this one has extra innings written all over it" and "Ozzie not the long ball threat from the left side". A priceless moment.

Another thing I like about the series is that the inside cover of each disc has inning-by-inning details so you can forward to the relevant parts if you are impatient.

Enjoy the memories!"
