Lookn for NYG history
Hi Does anyone know if there's a website where I can buy or download any of the NYG championship games(1927,34,38 & 56) also their superbowl games (1986,90,07 & 11)Cheers Mpv
I'm not sure about the pre-NFL stuff, but you can find the Super Bowls in several locations
Super Bowls XXI, XXV and XLII: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0029ZUQ80
Super Bowl XLVI: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B007GMKX5M/
Or you can download the games individually from iTunes:
Failing that, several have been uploaded to YouTube.
Cheers for that just bought on iTunes, would love to find old games still..
For the old stuff, the best I can offer is things like The Greatest Game Ever Played (the 1958 championship against the Colts which the Giants lost in overtime), they made a big deal about for the anniversary of it, including colorized game film.

If the games were recorded at all, the tapes were often reused for later games. Nobody saw any value in holding on to them. I saw a documentary on MSG (Madison Square Garden network) and they reused tapes over and over, losing a lot of Knicks and Rangers history.
There's also a DVD set of the Giants' 10 greatest games which was taken from the TV network's master archives and has the full playoff runs for XXI and XXV.
There are also DVDs of the entire playoff runs for XLII and XLVI. Also available on iTunes here and here.
