For those of you who may not understand the significance of the bottom flap, allow me to explain. Bottom flap and side flap sleeves are usually first run copies of the original release of the title. The bottom flap slipcase has an opening at the top and the bottom. This ensures the tape itself can’t accidentally fall out of the slipcase. It also makes for a nifty collector’s item.
Then there is the open bottom slipcase sleeve which is the more commonly owned release. A bottom flap VHS of Sleepaway Camp is like orgasm. I’m ashamed to admit that even I do not own one yet. Looking for your own bottom flap? Look no further than eBay.
