i got a lot of them by trade on sites like this one... i got a lot of my older film back years ago when i was posting on hbo fight forum... thats been probably 7 or 8 years ago... but ordering online i got some and just catching all the fight cards on t.v.. i had a friend in england i used to trade with but he sold his collection... in all i cant tell you how many fights i have on vhs and dvd but i can tell you as of maybe 10 years or so ago i had over 2000 for sure thats why i was saying we should start a fight film trade type deal on here... we could all benefit... the biggest thing about it is getting burned by people... i never had that problem because i only traded or bought from certain people but i would like to think that we are a tight enough community on here that nobody needs to steal a few fights... its all done on a trust basis...
I'd be willing to give away my VHS masters if somebody would convert them to DVD for me....between my fight collection and my rare horror film collection....I cannot convert fast enough.
The bad thing is that being this close to the gulf in South TX....the humidity KILLS VHS tapes......I myself have only lost a couple as I have my entire collection packed with silicon packets to insure that they stay in good shape.
BUT I know masters are something that people are always interested in as DVD to DVD is pretty crappy quality as compared to VHS master to DVD.
