TAPE 510

Quality: VG/EX

Length: 7.5 hrs (4 DVD)

AWA & WWF 1980's COMPILATION (Kind of a random mixture of great stuff from the 1980s from both the AWA and the WWF. The AWA footage is almost all from Winnipeg, making it quite rare, while the WWF stuff is mostly from SNME making it fairly rare in this VQ. Quality is at least VG/EX throughout, super nice.)
