Kansas City Royals 1985 World Series Collector's Edition DVD Review

Kansas City Royals 1985 World Series Collector's Edition DVD Review



Synopsis: Released from the Major League Baseball Film and Video archives for the first time ever, each disc features the actual television broadcasts of this historic Fall Classic.  The seven games in this remarkable DVD collection showcase the rollercoaster of intra-state emotions as the Cardinals flew out to grab three quick wins in the first four games, only to have the Royals capture the final three games in oh-so-dramatic fashion.  These vintage games capture the beauty of mid-1980s Royals Stadium, a roster of all-time Royals stars, and a battle of players, managers, and intra-state cities that enthralled the region and delighted a nation.

DVD bonuses on the set include the 1985 Kansas City Royals season Highlight Film, segment on George Brett Hometown Hero, Bret Saberhagen Cy Young Award Winner, and classic segments including: ALCS Highlights; Royals Clubhouse Celebration,  “Royals Looking Back”  and “How The Royals Met the Cardinals”.

Review: I won't lie, I'm not a huge sports person.  I don't watch it anymore, but as a kid I grew up in the midwest and around here it was all about the KC Royals!  I remember the 1985 World Series when they faced the Cardinals.  Its a now epic battle that has gone down in history.  You got players like George Brett and Bret Saberhagen leading the team in their glory days.

This DVD set commemorates the 1985 World Series by giving us all seven of the games in their original television broadcasts.  You can literally relive the series!  Its a wonderful piece of history and most certainly something that any baseball fan needs to own!

We're going to be giving away one of these great sets!  Watch the site later for a giveaway!
