I would if it wasn't on the Espn network channels like 24/7. Still a good deal but I'll wait for an even lower price tag since I already seen most of it. The Mat Hoffman one was pretty mean.

I wish they would stop advertising this set as new since I have had mine since last year. Don't they have newer movies that they can release in a second set?

I'd like that set because I've only seen a couple and actually bought the Len Bias one on DVD. Don't have the cash right now, though.

True but you get the set with all the extra goodies. And at a cheaper price too.

I believe there is a new blu-ray set with the first five movies that followed the original 30 for 30. I think it is a Wal-mart exclusive. The price was ridiculous when I saw it. It was more than I paid for the 30 for 30.

Be sure to tell him about this though, so he'll be more inclined to get a BD player.
