Gift Idea for Sports Fans: ESPN's 30 for 30 Film Favorites Collection

12 of ESPN's critically acclaimed 30 for 30 documentaries make a great holiday gift for a sports fan looking to watch - or rewatch - some of the most compelling stories in sports history.

What Is It: A six-disk set featuring 12 of the most popular 30 for 30 documentaries produced by ESPN.

Who's It For: A sports or movie fan with an interest in what goes on behind the scenes of sports as much as what happens on the field.

Why It Makes a Great Gift: From top to bottom, few have found problems with the 30 for 30 series: they're fascinating stories told by talented filmmakers. Some are serious, some are light-hearted, all of them are meant to make you watch sports in a new light.

Luckily, ESPN has doubled down on the well-received series, making more than the initial run of 30 movies to explore other intriguing stories we might not have heard. Unluckily, that's a really unwieldy amount of movies to watch or buy. This 12-pack offers some of the best stories, like The U, on the University of Miami's football program; The Two Escobars, about the drug trade, soccer, and the murder of Columbian star Andres Escobar; and Catching Hell, the story of much-maligned Steve Bartman. You can get the set without breaking the bank or sentencing your sports fan to 60 hours of DVD viewing.

Cost: $60

Where to Get It: ESPN's store, most online stores that sell DVD's
