We are pleased to present the very first Beckett graded VHS tape to hit the market, and its one of the most desirable titles in the entire hobby: Friday the 13th.  A factory sealed first edition slipcover variant of Friday the 13th has proven elusive even for the most savvy tape collectors.  With prominent, eye catching Paramount Home Video watermarks cascading vertically on the reverse, this example showcases ultra desirable sub grades of 9.0 and above along with an "A" seal.  A truly special piece well deserving of its Platinum status.   Encapsulated by BECKETT (9.2/A), #2950133631
