"I can't believe nobody has reviewed this..so an old southern californian will take the lead for the millions of baseball fans and those in Baltimore and let rip.
This set has flab..whenever you have complete games that aren't world series games there are things you don't want to watch over and over...so the DVDs of Cal's multi-hit affairs aren't something I will revisit too often. But..there are so many classic moments that make this a MUST for any true baseball fan.
The complete game where he eclipsed Lou Gehrig is wonderful and reminds me how I felt at the time and how Cal almost singlehandedly returned baseball back to prominence after the horrible strike. The All star game is also terrific fun and the bonus disc with an hour documentary on Cal and multiple highlight clips from 3,000th hit to 400th homer etc etc is very cool.
If I had a son I'd want him to watch this to understand what baseball is really about and what class and work ethic and grace are...

"Overall a solid set with some interesting games from the 90's. The only thing I wish they had done with this is they could've put in games such as the game he got his 3000th hit, 400th home run, the 1991 All-Star game in which he was MVP, or even game 5 of 1983 World Series in the Orioles victory over Philly."
Nothing special, and who picked these games?

"Well, now I have to say that almost all of these MLB/A&E DVD sets are at least very good. Sure, there's the 2131 game. But other than that, there isn't much worth watching more than once. Maybe the three home-run game and the documentary. Unless you're a Cal fan or really want to see the record-breaking game, take a pass."
Worth it at the right price.

"If you are a Ripken fan or a baseball purest this collection is worth owning for the record breaker game at Camden Yards. Also the 2001 All-Star Game is a nice piece. The balance of the set is average at best. However, at the bargin prices on Amazon it is worth adding to the collection."
