REPRESENTATIVE SAMPLE BASEBALL LIST (all selections below are mint or excellent video quality)

(NONE are 'ESPN Classic' or 'Prime Ticket' versions [except a couple as noted]!!!)

Unlike our other sports, this is a fairly small group of games and videos, and is primarily focused on the Mets and Yankees--with plenty of exceptions!  However, the quality of nearly all offerings is second to none, generally the best in the hobby.  If you have a specific game(s) you are interested in, please just e-mail us noting the game or games, and we will tell you if we have it and its quality (most full baseball games are recordings we made ourselves off of TV over the years, since 1979). 

Our collection of baseball games is many times the size of the list below.  And, uniquely, we have many games from the Mets' wonderful 1985 season, the year before the World Championship, when they won 98 games and lost 64.

Brooklyn Dodgers: The Ghosts of Flatbush - HBO documentary - 2007, 120 minutes - You definitely don't need to be a Dodger fan to LOVE this amazing documentary!  Thorough and emotional HBO documentary on the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1946-1959, their glory/heartbreak years and their years of breaking down barriers-- until they surprised their loyal fans and moved to Los Angeles.  The politics behind that move, both in NY and in L.A., are presented in great detail, and it's fascinating!  Leads with in-depth coverage of the recruiting of Major League Baseball's first black player, Jackie Robinson, then bringing him up to the Dodgers, and covers Robinson and his (and his teammates') experiences FAR better than the 2013 movie, 42.  Features current interviews with numerous Dodgers from that era (Duke Snider, Carl Erskine, Don Newcombe, Johnny Padres, Mrs. Joan Hodges (wife of Gil Hodges) -- "The Boys of Summer," as author Roger Kahn referred to them), and interviews with Brooklyn fans of the time, including Larry King, Louis Gossett, Jr., other celebrities, and several other local fans who describe the ups, downs, and frequent end-of-season heartbreaks in following the Dodgers.  Covers the stunningly interesting politics between powerful New York City public works boss Robert Moses, who argued with and repeatedly overruled Dodgers owner Walter O'Malley as to locating and building a new stadium for the Dodgers, and covers the courting of O'Malley by a young Los Angeles councilwoman (interviewed here), O'Malley viewing the Chavez Ravine site and envisioning a new stadium there for the Dodgers in Los Angeles, and then the courting by O'Malley of NY Giants owner Horace Stoneham-- as there would have to be more than one team located on the west coast for a Dodger relocation to work!  Amazing documentary-- you'll be glued to the screen.  Very rare, too. - Recorded broadcast ORIGINALLY on DVD; very sharp quality! - $99.00

Finley-- along with MUCH on Finley himself, and some time spent on their gopher-turned-"Vice President," MC Hammer (all when he was a child during their glory years!).
