It is really sad that NBC erased most World Series games before 1969. For example only 45 seconds exist from 1967 and only because Huntley-Brinkley showed highlights of Lonborg just missing a no-hitter in Game 2.
But it wasn't just sports - very little exists of Johnny Carson's 10 years in New York.
