We are pleased to present one of the most desirable and elusive 1980’s titles in the entire hobby:  First Blood. A factory sealed first edition Thorn EMI clam shell Betamax from 1982 with the ultra-rare no-promo reverse. Clam shell box has been well-preserved and has not yellowed.  It’s a hybrid, with the VERY RARE HBO Video watermarked seal (1984-85). The HBO Video watermark is bold and impressive (‘like new”). The seal presents with phenomenal clarity, free of surface wear and cloudiness. There is a small break in the seal but it’s out of sign on the bottom panel. “Case Fresh” eye appeal on this one. A truly special piece well deserving of its Platinum status. Encapsulated by VGA (80 Overall, Box 80/Seal 75), #73502903


Est. $5,000 - and up
