Baseball Budget Buster

NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Baseball has the perfect gift to
bust a budget in a recession.

A 20-DVD set of World Series films can be bought for $2,229, and
it contains authenticated autographs of 12 Hall of Famers,
including Yogi Berra, Bob Gibson, Reggie Jackson and Mike Schmidt.

A limited edition run of 100 sets was put together by Major
League Baseball Productions, A&E Home Entertainment and Mounted
Memories, the companies said Friday.

There are 65 films from 1943-08 that run for more than 50 hours.
The package also has autographs from Johnny Bench, Gary Carter, Bob
Feller, Rollie Fingers, Carlton Fisk, Whitey Ford, Brooks Robinson
and Bruce Sutter.

MLB spokesman Jeff Heckelman said the set is also available
without the autographs for $179.99 on and in stores with a
suggested retail price of $229.
