Baseball DVD collectors, and Pittsburgh Pirates fans, welcome to paradise! MLB Productions has taken home video excitement to the next level with this amazing, historic 7-Disc set. Celebrating the thrill-a-minute Fall Classic of 1979, you get over 19 hours of legendary performances from the likes of Willie Stargell, Dave Parker, Omar Moreno, Tim Foli, Phil Garner, Bill Madlock, Bill Robinson, John Candelaria, Bert Blyleven, Jim Bibby, Don Robinson, Jim Rooker, Kent Tekulve, manager Chuck Tanner, and the rest. This set contains seven individually-packaged discs, each containing the original ABC television broadcast of the game in its entirety (minus commercials and most pre/post game coverage). Re-live the games as they appeared back in the day, from the work of broadcasters Keith Jackson and the great Don Drysdale, to the multiple-camera-angles, to the great use of replays and graphics, to the interviews and highlights mixed in. In addition, the "Game 7" disc contains a library of dozens of bonus clips that include some pre- and post-game coverage from the series, highlights of Dave Parker's legendary performance at the 1979 All-Star Game, and player interviews conducted around the 25th anniversary of the event.
Each game DVD comes packaged with an innovative "SleeveStats" booklet, a full rundown of stats, facts, figures, and highlights of the game in question. Produced as a keepsake for Pirates fans, this item is also a must-have item for Orioles fans of the era, as there are nearly as many great moments to re-live for Marylanders as there are for Northwestern Pennsylvanians. The amazing performances of Eddie Murray, Al Bumbry, Doug DeCinces, Rick Dempsey, Ken Singleton, Mike Flanagan, Scott McGregor, Jim Palmer, manager Earl Weaver, and the rest are preserved with equal glory! An incredible value for the price, this is part of a revolutionary new era in sports DVD production - a historic archive of complete game coverage for your home video collection. Officially licensed by Major League Baseball, it is the most complete late-1970s World Series DVD collection ever offered. An absolute must for any baseball fanatic, and the perfect gift for the fan who has everything!
