Great St. Louis baseball nostalgia

"This DVD is a great way for any Cardinals fan to experience or re-experience the 60's-era Cardinals dynasty. Brock, Gibson, and many other Cardinals greats are all here. The video pretty much shows the last pitch of each at bat that took place during the three World Series. This is great because you can watch the whole series quickly, but still follow exactly how the games unfolded. Great St. Louis baseball nostalgia here -- the old Busch Stadium is referred to as "brand new" and "state-of-the-art" a few times. Harry Caray (who started in St. Louis before moving on to Chicago) even narrates one of the films. All in all just a great DVD -- too bad the Cards couldn't win all three."
BASEBALL CLASSIC ERA

"I just got this and have watched all three of the shows and all are so much fun to watch. To see Mickey Mantle hit four HRs off the Cards in 1964 was fantastic. To see Yaz in 1967 after his triple crown year was totally cool. And Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, Orlando Cepeda, a very young Reggie Smith in 1967 brought back so many memories. And my fav WS the 1968 with the Tigers. Al Kaline (hits like he is 20 again), Jim Northrup (hits grand slam), Denny McLain (31 game winner) and Mickey Lolich (won 3 games in series) was awesome. Bob Gibson again is classic and strikes out 17 Tigers in one game. Sure the video quality was so so and the sound a bit muddy but were talking 40-44 years ago. Even the crowd shots were cool. If you want to see true HALL OF FAMERS playing without steroids just get this and several of the other videos and you will love it. I'm not even a big Cards, Yanks, Tigers or Red Sox fan...I'm just a big baseball fan and these videos are too cool for school. Next one I gotta get is the 1972-74 Oakland A's. PLAY BALL!!!"
