No problem. I do want to be helpful. After all, if you do have these tapes, they would be the biggest discovery since the 1972 Canada-Russia games. Although I am very skeptical, you deserve a chance to prove your find.
By the way, regarding all those great Boston games that WSBK had televised from 1967 on, the hi-lites were extracted and the cassettes reused. Too bad.
This could be the first discovery by connections through this site..good stuff
Its hard to say because its complicated and I suppose its like books where there are returns and discounts. The market isn't huge, you are right about that.
The 1972 tapes were extremely expensive to convert and the players had to be paid as well, so the costs were high. I think that they lost money on that production.
The only sets of tapes that sell extremely well are Don Cherry's 'Rockem Sockem'.
It looks like the DVD set of the 1976 Canada Cup games is on again.

As far as the business side do these tapes turn a profit? In your opinion, what was the cost of the 72 tapes to bring to market and what was the profit? Just an educated guess.
I always knew you couldn't have had the 1971 series tapes because your information on the tapes had no credibility at all. But you wanted to have some fun and you can continue the charade for whatever reason you have.
Enough of this nonsense. Your other posts seem sensible enough.

Dont ask me, ask CH- he's the connected guy with intelligent, interesting and thoughtful posts. I'm the guy usually replying to an enthusiastic dog named bucky.
Out of curiosity, when was the last time you physically touched the reels and have you ever watched them to verify their contents?
I'm sure someone here can help you to get them transferred.
This has not gone unnoticed. While I appreciate the interest and am flattered by your constant attention, I would like to make it clear that I'm not interested in being more than just friends.
