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.
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 Yogi Berra, Bob Gibson, Reggie Jackson, Mike Schmidt, 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 MLB.com (linked here) and in stores with a suggested retail price of $229.
