A copy of The Boston Red Sox 100th Anniversary Collector’s Edition DVD Set, and TWO copies of the The Essential Games of Fenway Park DVD Sets.
Here’s some info about both:
The Boston Red Sox 100th Anniversary Collector’s Edition DVD Set is 12 DVD’s, with over 26 hours of Fenway Park and the Boston Red Sox, lovingly packaged in a gorgeous 28 page book, which begins with blueprints of Fenway on the inside covers, and continues with breathtaking pictures, and a narrative which includes such topics as Red Sox MVP’s, Arms, Quirks, and Grand Opening, among others…
And then there are the DVD’s, packed full of the amazing events that have happened at the World’s Most Beloved Ballpark: The 2004 and 2007 World Series Films, The 1999 All-Star Game, Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS and “THE Steal”, Also included is rare footage from the 50’s through the 80’s, as well as highlights from the 90’s and the 00’s…
The Essential Games of Fenway Park is a 6 DVD set, which comes in this very cool tin case, has all the games every Red Sox fan will want to watch again and again.
Here are the games/historical moments in Red Sox History…
September 30, 1967, vs the Twins: Yaz hits his 44th homer of the season to tie the Sox for the lead in a four-team AL pennant race.
Game 6, 1975 World Series, vs the Reds: That nail biter of a game, which ended with Carlton Fisk’s walk-off homer in the 12th.
April 29, 1986, vs Seattle: A young 23-year old pitcher named Roger Clemens struck out 20 batters in this Major League record setting contest.
1999 All-Star Game/All-Century Team celebration at Fenway Park: The final Mid-Summer Classic of the 20th Century and the one that cannot be outdone–EVER, as far as I am concerned. When all the players gathered around Ted Williams like children around their idol, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house…
1999 ALCS, Game 3 vs the Yankees: Pedro Martinez vs Roger Clemens–need we say more?
April 22, 2007, vs the Yankees: The night of the 4 consecutive homers.
