Yankees 1977 World Series Collectors Edition

by @ 5:06 pm. Filed under 1977 World Series, 1977 Yankees

Alright, I recently received a copy of the Yankees 1977 World Series Collectors Edition and this set is nothing short of awesome.  I haven’t watched every game yet, but you get it all.  All six games of the World Series AND that big come from behind win in game five of the ALCS against the Royals. 

I did take the time to watch that classic game six.  Reggie’s three homers sent shivers up my spine and I also watched the Yankees scored three runs in the ninth inning in that game against the Royals to win the pennant.  If you’re a Yankees fan, BUY THIS DVD.  If you think the Yankees had a great team in the late 1990s, then you didn’t live through the late 1970s when the Yanks won back to back titles.
