Box 8; Seal 9; 1986 Beta Movie - English Cover; 020953; First Print 1985 classic sci-fi comedy; Robert Zemeckis, Michael J. Fox, Christopher LloydWidely considered one of the best films of all time, the #1 top-grossing movie of 1985 was “Back to the Future.” The tale of Marty McFly and “Doc” Brown’s voyage through time is a beloved institution that spans across generations and has become an American classic. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, the movie was originally slated to star Eric Stoltz of “Mask” fame, but the change to Michael J. Fox was a masterstroke of casting, and along with Christopher Lloyd, Crispin Glover, and Lea Thompson, the franchise spawned two sequels and won over the attention of moviegoers worldwide. The home videotape market ruled in the 1980s and owning a hardcopy of one of the greatest movies of the decade is a no-brainer. Classic VHS and Betamax cassettes are quickly becoming one of the hottest collectible categories thanks to the nostalgia for simpler times, a physical format, and memorable cover art that tugs at the heartstrings of collectors of a certain age.
This Betamax copy of “Back to the Future” has been given an 8 box rating by IGS as well as a 9 seal rating. The box edges and corners were both graded an 8 and the surface earned an 8.5. This 1986 release is the English version, first print, and the seal is quite impressive earning a 10 for surface, a 10 for tightness, and a 7.5 for its edges and corners. We hope that some determined bidder will get to go back in time when they land this wonderful copy of an 80’s classic.
Seal (Surface): 10
Seal (Tightness): 10
Corners & Edges: 7.5
