Your home for RARE, hard-to-find sports films and videos in pristine condition. Since 1979 -- 35 years!
Usually studio-sourced recordings, and virtually always the very best quality available. We are not the lowest-priced. We do not offer junky "career sets" with haphazard quality, nor footage of less than excellent video quality. What we offer is the best quality, usually our well known "brand-new" looking video, even for 45-year-old broadcasts. For collectors and casual fans alike who want the very best.
Recorded ourselves "live" off of television since 1979 on VHS and later on Super-VHS ("S-VHS"--virtually DVD-quality), and acquired super-mint-quality broadcasts (from all eras) directly from TV networks and other studios since 1979 as well.
We have 16 new, professional-grade VCRs (mostly both S-VHS- AND VHS-capable machines) and 14 new, professional-grade DVD recorders, of different brands and models, so we are capable of transferring ANY tape to DVD perfectly.
NO "ESPN Classic" or other non-original re-broadcasts are offered here. Ours are virtually always BETTER-quality than those, anyway.
FREE sample DVDs sent with every order when you're a new customer (at least four sample DVDS per customer, one with each of your first four orders), each disc containing 30-second clips of 50-100 games or fights in mint quality, so you can see samples before you buy!

Forms of Payment
We accept: PayPal ( https://www.paypal.com ), U.S. bank cashier’s checks, and U.S. postal money orders only
- Please note: The use of PayPal to make a payment does not need to involve any fees for either party. If the customer elects to send money such that fees are generated by PayPal, then the customer is responsible for those fees-- but only for the actual fees charged (we don't add any mark-up). Per PayPal's fee schedule: 2.9% of the order total + $0.30 for US customers; 4.4% of the order total + $0.30 for non-US customers (PayPal increased their international fee on March 29, 2017 from 3.9% + $0.30 previously).
Before you order DVDs, videotapes, CDs, and audio cassettes, please email us FIRST, detailing your prospective order and asking whatever questions you may have about each broadcast. Within one day, generally, you will subsequently receive a price quote, as well as our PayPal account name or our postal mailing address (the latter for U.S. bank checks or U.S. postal money orders). This step prevents potential ordering errors-- by either you or us.
DO NOT SEND US ANY MONEY BEFORE YOU RECEIVE A FIRM PRICE QUOTE FROM US FIRST. ALL ORDERS ARE CUSTOM-PRICED, REFLECTING THE PARTICULAR RUNNING TIMES OF RECORDINGS AND THEIR RARITY, SINCE EACH ORDER IS BASED ON SPECIFIC CUSTOMER SELECTIONS.
To order: Simply 1) send us an email that lists your requested items that were just quoted to you, and include your full postal mailing address; and 2) remit the quoted payment.
The minimum order is 2-hours (i.e., one full 2-hour DVD or tape); or $60.00 if an audio broadcast is ordered; whichever is less. Since both you and we can usually only estimate the running times of fights, please provide a "want list" of bouts, in order of priority, that covers at least two full hours-- preferably more-- for each order. We'll fill up your DVD(s) in order from that list, and your providing a list with "extra" items will assure you that the disc(s) you're paying for are filled as completely as reasonably possible. As noted above, we do not offer partial DVDs, such as a 30-minute event by itself, until there is at least 2 hours of footage requested in an order, above which we are pleased to fulfill partial requests with that same order.

Orders ship from Washington (State), USA
Web site: www.ClassicSportsVideo.net
Cancellation policy: All cancellations must be confirmed by us before DVDs/tapes are made. As you are paying for our time/labor primarily (plus materials and shipping), once your DVDs and tapes are made, cancellations are not possible--even if they haven't yet shipped. Thank you for your understanding.
Return/exchange policy: All sports videotapes and DVDs are guaranteed as to quality (meaning their playability on your player--i.e., all DVDs and videotapes we sell are guaranteed to play smoothly, without freezing, skipping, speeding up/slowing down, or jittering, as a result of inferior transfer by us or the use of defective DVDs/tapes). Upon receipt of your order, if you encounter any playability problems, you can contact Classic Sports Video by email for an exchange for the same item (we'll remake the same event broadcast for you). You may contact us for up to 30 days after receipt of the product for a replacement due to the foregoing. We cannot and do not offer refunds for ANY reason, given the ease of DVD duplication nowadays. But, we’ll make good, immediately, on any legitimate claim of product defect as per the above, or on any legitimate claim that your order wasn't received, in either case with a replacement of the same broadcast(s). And, we triple-test every DVD and tape that leaves our premises to ensure ahead of time that there are no defects! We also have never had a shipment lost in transit, even overseas.
Our DVDs are the most popular version, Region 1 (North American) DVD-Rs, and are not returnable for geographic format incompatibility, though we can make, upon request, DVD-Rs that play perfectly on Region 2 (European) DVD players/recorders as well. DVD+Rs are also available, but please request +Rs up front. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at any time regarding Classic Sports events on DVD and VHS (or Super VHS) videotape.
Nearly all of our broadcasts have beautiful, sharp, "mint" picture quality or excellent picture quality, generally the very best available-- on the pre-2008 CRT (tube) televisions they were intended for. Please don't expect that ANY DVD available from us or from ANYONE will have beautiful, Hi-Definition, mint picture quality on today's Hi-Definition televisions. That is impossible; no sports event before 1999 was videotaped or broadcast in Hi-Definition, period. Moreover, even when recording today's Hi-Def broadcasts onto DVD, the Hi-Def quality cannot be replicated in playback once captured on DVD, as DVDs cannot retain or play in Hi-Definition. NO DVD will look beautiful and sharp on a Hi-Def television, and that includes any commercial DVDs manufactured by the movie studios (for movies on disc to be displayed in Hi-Definition, you must purchase Blu-Rays, not DVDs). -- When we say our recordings look beautiful or mint quality, etc., we mean on a pre-2008 CRT (tube) TV-- the kind of TV that ALL of these broadcasts were intended for when they actually occurred. Having said all of this, our recordings will generally look better even on an HD TV than those of our competitors.
We can locate for you almost any sports event that exists on video! If we don't have the fight or game you are looking for, and it has ever been filmed, we can get it for you--and in the best quality!
