    Interesting. mlb.com says it is in stock and ships in 1 to 2 days. Maybe mlb.com can release it earlier than other sites.

    $50 bucks.

    And three of the games ended bad and we KNOW how it ended

    Even worse, I just spent $30 on three LPs-turned into-CD's of Reds Highlights from 70, 72, & 75.

    On edit - if they do this for 76 & 90 - they need to do it for half the ptrice

    7 DVDs is alot, but for a person (my dad) who loved that team, it's worth it.

    After froogling it on google, I see that you can find it cheaper at other sites than for what mlb.com is selling it for.

    Wow, I paid $30 on EBay for a dvd of game six. The quality was pretty bad, it had been recorded from a vhs tape.

    It would be nice if they still had the commercials in the mlb set. That was one of the best parts of the dvd I bought. I had forgotten all about the "rich, corinthian leather" of the Chrysler Cordoba.

    Ricardo was the original Latin American pimp.

    Those commercials alone make the tape well worth what you paid.

    Yeah may have to get this if it's complete and well done.

    One of the things I've been looking for is the post-series celebration on Fountain Square - the Bob Braun show at the time covered it I believe.

    Seeing the clothes the players wore and the old downtown area and all the people, brought back a lot of memories, ecspecially a "young" Joe Nuxhall and Marty leading the scene. They replayed this on TV a while back one day.

    Why in the world this needs "7" DVD discs is beyond me - they should be able to fit all of it on 2-3 at most I would think - but oh well.

    Each game is 2.5-3 hours long, plus the four-hour Game 6 marathon, plus DVD extras. 7 discs doesn't seem ridiculous.

    They would be short and sweet. The Reds blew out the Pirates in three games. Game three did go extra innings but you knew the Reds were going to win it eventually. I would really like to see the 1972 NL Playoffs. That was one great series,especially game five! I wonder if MLB is eventually going to release all World Series and playoff games, in the TV era, on DVD?

    Man, I want that. I've seen games 6 and 7 enough, but I'd like to review the whole series and any extras.
