Mets fans, these were the best of times! Re-live the two most glorious Octobers in the history of the franchise with this incredible DVD, featuring Major League Baseball's official highlight films from 1969 and 1986.
First, it's the 1969 Miracle Mets - what more can you say? After an easy 4-1 victory for the Baltimore Orioles in Game 1 of the Fall Classic, most figured Mets were easy pickings for Earl Weaver's American League powerhouse. Then, it happened. Jerry Koosman helped the Mets win a tight one in Game 2. Tommy Agee took over in Game 3. Orioles reliever Pete Richert threw the ball away in Game 4. Finally, when Ron Swoboda drove home Cleon Jones in the eighth inning, the miracle was complete - the Mets were champions! With original commentary from legendary broadcaster Curt Gowdy, and breathtaking footage from all five games at Shea Stadium in Queens, and Memorial Stadium in Baltimore, you get all the action, including Brooks Robinson's defensive brilliance; performances from Orioles legends Frank Robinson, Jim Palmer, Dave McNally, Mike Cuellar, Davey Johnson, Boog Powell, and the rest; Agee's amazing catches in Game 3; a young Nolan Ryan thowing heat in relief; clutch hits from improbable heroes Ed Charles, Jerry Grote, Al Weis, Donn Clendenon, and J.C. Martin; Tom Seaver's dominance (and Ron Swoboda's game-saving diving catch) in Game 4; and the wild New York celebration following the final out in Game 5.
Then, it's the amazing 1986 classic, "Shuttle Series", Major League Baseball's official World Series film for 1986. With original commentary by legendary broadcaster Vin Scully, it includes the key moments from all seven games of the series. From Bruce Hurst's domination of the Mets in Game 1; to Boston's battering of Dwight Gooden in Game 2; to Lenny Dykstra's leadoff home run in Game 3; to Gary Carter's two homers in Game 4 to square the series; to the Red Sox victory in Game 5 to leave them one win away; to the non-stop, breathtaking tension and Bill Buckner's 10th-inning miscue in Game 6; to Darryl Strawberry's towering drive that helped clinch a comeback Game 7 victory for the Mets; to the post-game celebration and the tickertape parade - it's all here! With rare, historic coverage that also features memorable stars like Rich Gedman, Marty Barrett, Wally Backman, Danny Heep, Roger McDowell, Roger Clemens, Jim Rice, Wade Boggs, Gary Carter, Keith Hernandez, Bob Stanley, Mookie Wilson, Ray Knight, and many more, this is an amazing find for any baseball lover. A rare commemorative that will be watched again and again - perfect for any true baseball fan!
