LA/SF 8mm Footage From The 70's Vol. 1- Time 2:00 VQ- EX
This whole tape is footage taped off an 8mm recording device, so there is no sound. The picture is excellent throughout, but as I am somewhat unfamiliar with the wrestlers, I cannot provide a matchlist. However, some of the recognizable names are Dean Ho, The Shiek, Bobo Brazil, Ray Stevens, Black Gordman, Pat Patterson, The Gurerros, ect. Great tape!
