Best price for Carolina: March to the Arch NCAA Champs DVD?

I noticed the Carolina Basketball DVD at a couple places online for list price ($20) - johnnytshirt.com (official UNC site) and some weird Amazon sub-store. When will it be available at "normal" stores at a cheaper price? Is there any good price for it yet? It is not even on dvdpricesearch.com yet

I for one wouldn't expect to see it at much below the list price -- unless you find it used somewhere.

The cheapest I've seen it is at bestprices.com and walmart.com. It's called 2005 offical ncaa final four. Should be the the same as the March to the Arch. About $12-13 + shipping at both sites.

Well this is weird. There seem to be 2 different versions of the DVD. I found these two auctions on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...402654465&rd=1

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...402658458&rd=1

I don't know if it's just the covers that are different, or if the content of the DVDs are also different.

I can now verify that only the covers are different. The discs themselves are the same.

Thanks for the info. They are claiming on EBay that the UNC cover is rare. One even said limited to 500, which I don't believe for a second.

Amazon has it for $17.99 and free shipping eligible now, which is probably a better deal than waiting for a Bestprices.com backorder (no longer listed on Walmart.com).

Had a Question: Is the game footage for the Final Four 16x9?

Walmart.com still has it for $12.88 + shipping. But under the wrong name: "Delivering Milo".

I bought the UNC version from someone on eBay, and he sent me the national version. I called him and told him I wanted the UNC version, and he said he would ask his supplier to send him UNC versions, and then he'd exchange it. A couple days later I had the UNC version. He even let me open up the national version and watch it, while I waited for the UNC version, which is how I know that the discs are the same. The fact that he was able to get more copies of the UNC version from his supplier, one month after the DVDs were released, leads me to believe that the seller who says only 500 copies were made was making stuff up.

No, the footage isn't widescreen. At least I'm fairly certain it's not (I don't have a widescreen TV).

Also should note that the highlights portion of the DVD has fairly poor picture quality. A lot of times it looks fuzzy and blocky, especially if there is fast motion. Other people have said that that problem would be caused by too much compression.

The picture quality of the games (at least the championship game) is good though. Didn't notice any fuzziness or blockiness while watching the championship game.

There is no way the UNC cover was limited to 500 because the three local Best Buys here have around 50 of them at each store.
