Maybe MLB.com is promoting these as something new but it's existed for at least a few years now.

My hometown library had the whole series.

So that would mean Chicago would have the Cubs and Sox, St. Louis would have the Cards and Browns, and if they do Boston, it would have the Sox and Braves, while Milwaukee would have the Braves and Brews.

Besides, it's WS footage, not WS-winning footage. The Cubs have many more appearances in the Big Dance than do the Sox. Or maybe it's a city DVD, not team?

I'm assuming you mean the White Sox, right? Video cameras were invented some time in the '30s I think, so I can't imagine they could fill a whole DVD with Cubs WS footage.
