Contest: The 1975 World Series

I'm not quite old enough to remember this classic World Series, so this was a real treat. My goodness, what a series. Five one-run games, five Hall of Famers (Johnny Bench, Carlton Fisk, Joe Morgan, Tony Perez and Carl Yastrzemski) and other big names like George Foster, Bill Lee, Fred Lynn, Pete Rose and Luis Tiant..

My favorite part: The broadcasts themselves. I don't quite understand the rotation, but it's not the same two or three broadcasters per game. The cast includes Marty Brennaman, Joe Garagiola, Curt Gowdy, Tony Kubek and Ned Martin. Great promos for upcoming NFL action (man, I loved the Houston Oilers) and a new show called "NBC's Saturday Night." 

One caveat concerning this giveaway: Each game comes in its on case, but I've lost the case to Game 7. I figured the content of the DVDs makes it still worthwhile, even if it's stylistically incomplete.

OK, here we go: I'll give my DVD set to the first person who e-mails me - at kdavidoff@newsday.com - with the correct answer to this question:

Which player hit the most home runs in the 1975 World Series?

UPDATE, 3:07 p.m.: We have a winner! Marc knew that Tony Perez, with three, hit the most homers in that amazing Fall Classic. Another giveaway tomorrow.
