FROM BANKS, SANTO AND JENKINS TO TRACHSEL, SANDBERG AND WOOD, CUBS FANS CAN CELEBRATE THEIR NORTHSIDER HEROES ACROSS FOUR EXHILIRATING GAMES IN THIS MUST-HAVE COLLECTOR'S SET
The Chicago Cubs have not won a World Series since 1908 or the National League pennant since 1945. Yet, since their founding as the "White Stockings" in 1876, the team can claim some of the most devoted fans in all of sports. The dynamic between Wrigley Field, the home team Chicago Cubs, and their devoted fans exceeds any normal measurements, and it's a connection of team, place, and supporters that has stirred emotions across more than five generations. The Essential Games of the Chicago Cubs, a collectible 4-disc set, features four historic and unforgettable Cubs games, re-mastered and uncut for optimal viewing. The set, which will be available for $39.95srp in stores, including the team store, and at Rangers.com, also features radio play-by-play allowing fans the ability to listen to the original radio calls.
This extraordinary collection of Cubs baseball games showcases four game telecasts that feature legendary lineups spanning five decades. The first game salutes a star-studded lineup featuring four Hall of Famers, and managed by one too (Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, Billy Williams, Ferguson Jenkins, Leo Durocher). The second game is stunning display of immense talent, as Ryne Sanberg led a shocking defeat of the St. Louis Cardinals. Jumping ahead to 1998 the one-game NL Wild Card tiebreaker capped a remarkable summer at Wrigley as Steve Trachsel and the Cubs stifled the San Francisco Giants. The closing game features a Kerry Wood clinching victory to propel the Lou Piniella-led Cubs to another celebration.
