.Cruising through VHS Wasteland's daily cover selections yesterday, these scans of the front and reverse cover of SHV's Braindead caught my eye. Not only because they're awesome, but because they're of the exact copy I snagged from another collector recently with the same minor damage and sale sticker on the back of the nurse/baby cover (which was cleanly removed). I don't believe he made the scans, so the origin of these is a mystery!
This makes for a good example of how Japanese tapes have a way of circulating within a niche of collectors over time. Also see that small circular holographic sticker on the nurse/baby spine? Don't remove them! They're Japan Video Morality Association stickers and are regularly seen on Japanese videos (kinda like the U.K.'s BBFC ratings). They don't peel off well, usually ripping the cover which naturally sucks and hurts resell value.
