BTTF123*? Yes, thats Tim. I owned his hoverboard for some years... He made some good stuff, so can't believe the matchbooks were so bad...
Of course he was one of the first guys who made and offered BTTF props, so maybe some props were not the best at this time...
The matchbooks have a very jagged logo, the curves weren't smooth and there were a lot of points that there shouldn't have been. Something was off about the colour as well. I tried finding them last night but I couldn't, maybe I threw them out.
The Sports Almanac wasn't cut right, the width of the back of the book was shorter then the width of the front of the book.
The distressed Doc to Marty letters themselves were good but the envelope had really unnatural looking staining and it was missing the Marty text in the middle.
Those items were bought in 2009, maybe he improved his quality since then or maybe he was just having an off day and rushed through the stuff but I wasn't impressed.
The matchbooks have arrived.
Now I can make them look "as close as possible" like the screenused ones.
I'll post pictures soon.
I updated my first post with pictures of my "improved" matchbooks.
Feel free to give any comments.
looks great shame the matches were such a pain for you to get but maybe worth checking for wedding fairs in your area
15 - 20 years ago, you could find matchbooks everywhere.
Now you have to search harder to find them.
The white matches are not very common, mostly you find red ones.
I'll post pictures of the other matchbooks this week.
