Baseball DVD collectors, and St. Louis Cardinals fans, welcome to paradise! MLB Productions has taken home video excitement to the next level with this amazing, historic 6-Disc set. Celebrating the 40-year run of Cardinals baseball at the round, arch-ringed arena, this incredible compilation includes the following classic games in their original, complete television broadcast form (minus commercials and most pre- and post-game coverage):
  • 1968 World Series Game 1 (Complete Black & White Game Broadcast) - Re-live one of the greatest post-season pitching performances of all-time, as Bob Gibson shuts out the Detroit Tigers on five hits, and sets a World Series record with 17 strikeouts.
  • 1982 World Series Game 7 (Complete Game Broadcast) - From the moment Ozzie Smith stepped on the field and delivered a charged-up pre-game back-flip, you knew it was going to be a glorious night! After six hard-fought classic games against the Milwaukee Brewers, and falling to a 3-1 deficit heading into the bottom of the sixth, the Cardinals come back with some clutch hitting by series MVP Darrell Porter and win to capture the World Series Championship.
  • 1985 NLCS Game 5 (Complete Game Broadcast) - Featuring one of the most dramatic Home Runs in playoff history - Ozzie Smith's impossible walk-off blast against the L.A. Dodgers' closer Tom Niedenfuer to lift St. Louis to within one game of the World Series.
  • 1987 World Series Game 3 (Complete Game Broadcast) - After losing the first two games of the series in Minnesota, the Cardinals return home to domination at Busch. John Tudor's pitching brilliance, and Vince Coleman's clutch hitting, bring St. Louis back into the series in front of a raucous home crowd.
  • 1998 Regular Season Game #145 (Complete Game Broadcast) - Witness Home Run history, as Mark McGwire breaks Roger Maris' record by delivering #62 into the left-field stands in a nationally-televised event.
  • 2004 NLCS Game 7 (Complete Game Broadcast) - Facing legendary superstar Roger Clemens, and a 2-0 deficit headed into the bottom of the sixth, the Cardinals rally for another dramatic victory thanks to clutch hitting by Albert Pujols and Scott Rolen, and head to the World Series for the first time since 1987.
Each game DVD comes packaged with an innovative "SleeveStats" booklet, a full rundown of stats, facts, figures, and highlights of the game in question. In addition, the sixth disc features dozens of bonus clips, including Hall of Fame Induction Speeches from Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, Red Schoendienst, Ozzie Smith, and Jack Buck; Lou Brock's 3,000th Hit and Stolen Base Record; Albert Pujols' 1st Major League Homer; 2004 NLCS Homers by Pujols & Jim Edmonds; Rare Interviews from Tony LaRussa, Joe Buck, Scott Rolen, Mike Shannon, Jim Edmunds, Whitey Herzog; Uniform Retirement Ceremonies for Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, Ozzie Smith; This Week In Baseball Segments featuring several Cardinals stars; and the Busch Stadium Final Send-Off. 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 deep, rich, robust Cardinals DVD collection ever offered. An absolute must for any baseball fanatic, and the perfect gift for the fan who has everything!
