Rare Sports Films



     For the first time ever, the highlights of every game of the 1963 World Series are now available in beautiful, natural COLOR on a new DVD from Rare Sportsfilms! Narrated by famed Dodger broadcaster Vin Scully, this fabulous new DVD brings back all the nostalgia of this memorable World Series, which shocked baseball and cemented the name of Sandy Koufax into World Series lore forever!

     Actual full-COLOR game-action highlights of all the big plays of every game of the series are included! You may have seen some footage of this series on VHS or TV highlight shows in the past, but with poor, reddish color! Now, with the help of the most modern electronic equipment, you can see it again in natural color! Every scene in the film (numbering in the hundreds) has been individually restored digitally to bring back the color and picture sharpness of the original color print! You’ll see great shots of both ballparks (OLD Yankee Stadium – before remodeling – and especially new Dodger Stadium) colorfully decked out in World Series bunting and great shots of the players including Frank Howard, Jim Gilliam, Johnny Roseboro, Maury Wills, Bill Skowron, the Davis boys and the Dodgers’ great pitching staff of Koufax, Don Drysdale, Johnny Podres and Ron Perranoski. New York Yankees featured include Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Yogi Berra, Tom Tresh, A.L. MVP Elston Howard, Joe Pepitone, Clete Boyer, Whitey Ford and rookies Jim Bouton and Al Downing!

     Here is what you’ll see on this new DVD:

Game 1 at Yankee Stadium: Sandy Koufax vs Whitey Ford – The most memorable game of the series is the opener, as Sandy Koufax makes series history by fanning 15 Yanks to set a new all time record! Tom Tresh’s HR in the 8th accounts for both the Yanks runs, but Sandy is in command all the way as the Dodgers win, 5-2. Ex-Yank Bill Skowron’s RBI single and Johnny Roseboro’s 3-run HR in the second inning are the big hits of the game.

Game 2 at Yankee Stadium: Johnny Podres vs Al Downing – Another strong Dodger pitching performance, this time by southpaw Johnny Podres, who holds the Yanks to a run on six hits thru 8 innings, continues the pace of the series for L.A. Two quick runs in the first inning off Downing put the pressure on the Yanks immediately. Perranoski in relief. HR, Bill Skowron.

Game 3 at Dodger Stadium: Don Drysdale vs Jim Bouton – Once again the Dodgers jump on top in the very first inning on a walk, a wild pitch and a single by Tommy Davis. Drysdale is dominating, walking 1, striking out 9 and allowing only 3 hits! Pepitone’s thrilling HR bid in the 9th is caught against the RF wall by Ron Fairly!

Game 4 at Dodger Stadium: Sandy Koufax vs Whitey Ford – Whitey Ford actually out pitches Koufax in this game, allowing only 2 hits (both by Frank Howard) in 7 innings before being pinch-hit for in the 8th. However, Howard’s first hit in the 5th is a tremendous blast into the second deck in left field – the first time a fair ball had ever been hit into the second deck at Dodger Stadium! In the 7th, Mickey Mantle rips into a Koufax fast ball and smashes a long homer into the centerfield stands to tie the score. It’s Mickey’s 15th in series play, tying him with Babe Ruth for series homers! Joe Pepitone’s error in the bottom of the inning allows Gilliam to go to third base, from where he scores the winning run on Willie Davis’ sac fly, completing the first sweep of the Yankees in World Series history!
