From the moment the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates first took the field, until they battled back to defeat the Baltimore Orioles in the 1979 World Series, "the Buccos" demanded attention and respect. The optimism of manager Chuck Tanner provided the perfect guidance to a team already led by the universally-respected Willie Stargell and the ferocious hitting of Dave Parker. Galvanized by a family spirit, a crowd-pleasing song, and the shared fire to win, this team was marked by character, confidence, and a flair for dramatic victories.
Down three games to one, the Pirates provided a sudden plot change and stormed back to claim the 1979 World Series championship. Every game of this remarkable Fall Classic, every pitch, clutch hit, stellar pitching performance, and infectious smile of the Pirates is digitally preserved in this one-of-a-kind collectible.
