I am so excited to have had a sneak peek! Since it was an off-day for the Twins anyway, the first thing I did was throw in game one to see if they had any of the pregame celebrations from the game I was able to attend. My high school marching band actually performed during the pregame and I would have gotten a double joy if it was there but I didn’t expect ANY pregame stuff. Guess what? Right there under Scene Selections was a listing for Pregame! They didn’t have the marching band but they had just about everything else including the National Anthem by Gladys Knight that I had completely forgotten about. I spent the whole first DVD trying to remember where I was sitting and if I remembered little things that happened and the next hit… AMAZING nostalgia and I was shocked by what I remembered and what I had forgotten from 20 years ago. If you were lucky enough to attend any of that series, you’ll find yourself doing the same thing. If you weren’t able to attend, the energy from each game is palpable. Yes, you know what’s supposed to happen but you’ll be sitting on the edge of your seat anyway. You can’t help it. This really was an unforgettable baseball experience.

Was it really the greatest Fall Classic ever? Five games were decided by one run. Four of the games were won on the very last plate appearance. Three games went extra innings. Two managers played a seven-game chess match. One run was scored in the Game 7, 10-inning masterpiece. Add in Kirby Puckett’s Game 6 for the ages, a power-hitting third base tandem, Kent Hrbek providing a lift at first, a rookie rising above the tension, veteran power, clutch pitching led by the wizened Jack Morris, plus a relentless and dynamic Atlanta Braves team –and yes, it was the Greatest World Series ever played. This beautifully-packaged seven-DVD collection contains every pitch, hit, sterling defensive play, and ear-popping Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome memory along with each glorious Minnesota Twins 1991 World Series championship moment. The collection displays the heroics of Dan Gladden, Gene Larkin, Chuck Knoblauch, Chili Davis and Brian Harper, plus the steadying leadership of Manager Tom Kelly. A special DVD audio feature allows fans to watch the World Series television broadcast and listen to the Twins Radio Network announcers!

MAGIC IN MINNESOTA is more than just another film about just another championship team. It’s about the Twins – your Twins – and perhaps the greatest World Series of all time.
If the DVD collections of the baseball games aren’t enough for you, the Twins have a couple other things put together to honor the 20th Anniversary: a Jack Morris MVP autographed baseball and limited edition print by Karl Jaeger.
To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the 1991 World Series championship team, the Twins have released an autographed Jack Morris “1991 World Series MVP” baseball and a 1991 World Series Print for sale with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Twins Community Fund.
The 20th Anniversary of the Twins 1991 World Series triumph over the Atlanta Braves holds special significance for legendary pitcher Jack Morris. In Game 7 of that series, “Black” Jack pitched a complete game shutout in what many have called one of the most thrilling World Series finishes in history. To celebrate the anniversary of this milestone, the Minnesota Twins and Jack Morris have created an exclusive series of autographed baseballs to commemorate the event.
Jack Morris has signed 1,000 baseballs with his name and the notation, “1991 World Series MVP.” Each baseball carries the special 20th anniversary logo created by the Twins and is numbered from 1 to 1,000. Jack Morris will sign no other baseballs with that notation. For $91, you can own one of these baseballs and a piece of World Series history.
The 1991 World Series print (a part of the Minnesota Twins Memories series) was created with colored pencils by local artist Karl Jaeger. This fine art print captures the memories and finest moments from one of the greatest World Series in baseball history.
The 1991 World Series prints are available in a variety of styles including a limited edition canvas giclee, fine art paper prints, as well as an autographed version signed by Tom Kelly, Dan Gladden, Kent Hrbek, Gene Larkin, and Jack Morris.
More than anything, watching the DVD series reminded me how much I would really, really, really like to see something like this happen again. This is the ultimate experience for players, managers and fans alike. It’s time boys. 20 years is long enough to wait!
