The Limited Series is a box set released by American country music artist Garth Brooks, released by Pearl Records on May 5, 1998.

The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and the Top Country Albums chart with 372,410 copies sold.[2] It features re-issues of Garth's first six albums, with a bonus track added to each. Sales in the United States were limited to two million copies.[1][3][4]

With the release of The Limited Series, Brooks is the first artist to debut at #1 on two charts with a boxed set and set a record for first week sales of any boxed set in the Soundscan era.[2]

Of the newly added tracks, "To Make You Feel My Love" (a cover of a Bob Dylan song from the "Hope Floats" soundtrack) reached #1 on the country charts in mid-1998. Additionally, "Something with a Ring to It" was previously recorded by Mark Collie on his 1990 debut album Hardin County Line.
