As a kid, I absolutely wore out the VHS copies of World Series highlight films my dad had bought me at various yard sales, so I'm really happy to see this: A&E Home Entertainment has partnered with MLB to produce team-specific World Series Film collections on DVD, available for purchase at MLB.com. Each DVD features four full-length highlight films from the team's history; right now, the cities being offered are Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and New York. They sent me a copy of the Phillies highlights (in honor of S-R being a Philly-based company), and I was impressed with the quality of the digitally-preserved versions, especially the 1950 highlight of the Phils and Yankees. Priced at $19.99, these make a great gift for fans, especially ones (like me) who watched the old VHS copies until they would play no more.
