Home Run Derby!! Mantle v. Mays!!

Hands down the best episode of the best baseball-themed game show with actual major leaguers, 1959's "Home Run Derby" starring Willie Mays vs. Mickey Mantle. They won actual checks based on who hit the most ($2000) and consecutive jacks hit. As host Mark Scott will gladly explain, the only rule that matters is that "It's a home run or nothing here on Home Run Derby." Far superior to today's multi-player All-Star affair. The entire series is now available on DVD.

Part 1

Part 2

Bummer, I can't find part 3! Let's buy the DVD, huh Karly!?!
