Bull Durham question???

I want to get Bull Durham on DVD and wonder which version I should get. Maybe I'm confused, but it seems there are two or three versions out there.

The one I have my eye on has a cardboard slip case and says Special Edition. I've also seen one that just has yer typical keep case with Special Edition on it.

I also believe there is an out of print version.

I'm sure someone can help.

thanks in advance

I almost always default to the special edition. Anamorphic etc., plau the extras I may or may not ever get to.
Have not seen the keep case version just the cardboard slip.

I'm actually trying to help but this will probably serve also to confuse.

Here are a couple of links I know to check.

Michael's Movie Mayhem that lists two versions, one OOP.

IMDb that shows the two versions.

Amazon that also shows the two versions.

I own the MGM SE version but the confusing part is that it is the newer SE MGM release with the extras and new commentary but is in the keepcase and the same front picture as the OOP Image version (Costner and Sarandon not the baseball).

I think as long as you get the MGM SE with these extras, Amazon technical details, then you are all set.

Edit: Can't link the Amazon search results nor the link that IMDb uses to start the search but just do a 'Bull Durham' search at Amazon which shows both versions.

MGM SE

OOP Image version

As far as I know there are only two versions. The MGM originally released the SE with the slipcase but after awhile, did away with it. It's the same SE just no slip case just like The Usual Suspects.

1st & OOP release has Ron Shelton (director) commentary - no other extras and it's in a snapper.

2nd release has Tim Robbins/Kevin Costner commentary

If you're into commentaries then both are desirable, otherwise the 2nd, MGM release is adequate.

The Ron Shelton commentary is on the new disc as well as the Tim Robbins/Kevin Costner commentary.

lisadoris is right: the slip case was done away with shortly after its release.

Didn't know that. Have both, just haven't opened the new one yet.

Then I would think there's no reason to be concerned about the old one.

I love the Robbins/Costner commentary when the love scene at the end comes up... Costner making it with Robbins' wife: (paraphrasing)

"uuhhh... hmmm"
