Contest: Yankees World Series films

Do you like World Series highlight films? Are you a Yankees fan? If you answered "Yes" to both of these questions, then this giveaway is for you.

This is a DVD collection entitled "New York Yankees Vintage World Series Films." There are 17 films from Yankees championship years, starting in 1943 against the Cardinals and finishing in 2000 against the Mets.

The older ones are pretty much straight highlights, while the newer ones feature more smoke and mirrors.

Personally, I don't love this stuff, but...well, see the first paragraph.

And now I'll give this collection to the first person who e-mails me - at kdavidoff@newsday.com - with the correct answer to this question:

Major League Baseball first honored a World Series Most Valuable Player in 1955, and since then, 12 different Yankees have won the award. No one has won it twice.

Of that dozen, two players share the same first name. Identify those two players.

--UPDATE, 2:48 p.m.: We have a winner! Stephen knew that Bob Turley (1958) and Bobby Richardson (1960) were the two Yankees World Series MVPs who shared a first name. More free crap tomorrow afternoon.
