Sealed Back to the Future VHS tape sells for $75,000 at US auction | Back To The Future

A sealed VHS tape of the hit 1980s movie Back to the Future has sold for $75,000 in the first ever auction of the now antiquated video-playing format.

The auction, held by Texas-based Heritage Auctions, featured 260 sealed VHS tapes, most of which were first-edition copies of movies from the 70s and 1980s. The Hill reported that the price tag meant the tape was probably the most expensive ever sold.

The copy of Back to the Future, was previously owned by the actor Tom Wilson, who portrayed Biff Tannen in the movie series.

It included a signed note from Wilson that said: “This is a VHS tape of the first release of Back to the Future, sent to me by the studio at that time. Since I knew that the VHS platform would be around forever, I saved it for later and now I can’t find a VCR. Oh well. Enjoy!”

There is a mini-boom among collectors for old VHS tapes, especially those that are first editions of hit movies or are in their original wrapping.
