- "There was an antique shop on this side of the street, a place called BLAST FROM THE PAST. The front window of the place was full of thing Marty remembered from 1985 or before, all carefully labeled, stuff like a Betamax VCR, a Super-8 movie projector, a lava lamp, a Macintosh computer, and a whole bunch of Perrier bottles. In fact, the only thing Marty didn't recognize in the window was a small, silver book with the bold, red title: Gray's Sports Almanac 1950-2000."
- —From Back to the Future Part II by Craig Shaw Gardner (quote, page 26)
On October 21, 2015, Marty McFly became a customer when he sold his pocket change and dollar bills as antique currency and purchased the Grays Sports Almanac. The saleswoman pointed out the almanac's dust jacket as part of her sales pitch, and also recommended to Marty a DustBuster hand vacuum in case he was particularly interested in dust.
The display window contained many items, including (in no particular order):
- Grays Sports Almanac
- a Betamax VCR

Behind the scenes
- The unnamed saleswoman is played by Judy Ovitz.
- Roger Rabbit was a Robert Zemeckis film that also starred Christopher Lloyd. The title character was voiced by Charles Fleischer, who was Terry in Part II. As the old man who tells Marty that he wishes he could go back in time to bet money on the Chicago Cubs winning the 2015 World Series, Terry inspires Marty to return to the Blast from the Past store to buy the almanac. It is also interesting to note that the original Jaws is a Steven Spielberg film and a sequel appears for it in Back to the Future Part II.
- The window display also includes (behind the DustBuster and the computer monitor), on a mannequin, a Guess two-tone blue denim jacket with an "Art in Revolution" button. This is the same outfit that Marty had been wearing in 1985, and was included as an in-joke.
