    This is why you have to go to a currency collector shop and buy old bills from that time period. Go back in time. Betting at horse races has been around since before 1950, Find a good long shot winning horse in the book, Go to the track and bet on it. Rinse and repeat several times. Viola, You`ll be a millionaire.

    If you know the outcome of every sporting event, why would you bet on something that had 2-5 odds? Plus there was horse racing outcomes in Grey`s almanac, you could easily clean up there and turn $1 into 1000s.

    Uhm, not really, because Biff was already in the 1950s, and had 1950s money...so that would eliminate the first few problems.

    You could also always bet on something that had longer odds, or something more specific, like the actual score, which will generate more income.

    Why do you need to go back that far at all? Trade in your money for some gold jewelry or something, sell it at a pawn shop in 1995, use that money to bet on a game with awesome odds in your favor. Or horse racers.

    I think I missed the part where Biff was in this comic. I thought it was about someone from 2010 trying his method.

    1) Look up lottery numbers for last week.
    2) Go back a week.
    3) ????
    4) Profit.

    And by ???? I mean buy a lottery ticket with those numbers.

    though personally, I don`t think it would quite work as well as we think. Biff changed the WORLD into this completely different world.

    Surely that would impact things like which football teams got funding, allegations of match fixing, people looking more closely at various teams, more disqualifications than usual, changes in rosters, etc.

    or don`t go back so far, just far enough to invest heavily in microsoft. or before you go back in time, rather than withdrawing ally our cash, buy gold bricks or something tradable. obvious plot hole has obvious solution.

    It talks about how sporting betting couldn`t be made in casinos until 1974, so why not just use the Delorean to go to 1974 (or later) instead of 1950?

    @OmgZelda - Also a good option, but Microsoft`s profit margins have consistently been higher than Apple`s, some might argue due to inferior products, I don`t know or care. All`s I know is, I would have gone the Microsoft route.

    though the chart thing doesn`t really, the post description implies this is supposed to be applied to bttf which was set in like, the 80`s? so with any amount of money you can make a 2009 monthly salary, in the 50`s which will be alot more due to inflation or whatever. so a steady income involving no work, and knowledge of things to invest in that will become successful..sounds like a good life to me.

    What you do is that you use the money you have in the present to buy some expensive peice of jewellery, take that back with you, sell it, open a bank account with that money and then travel back to the present. Problem solved.

    this chart... really...doesn`t... apply to the movie. Marty`s plan was to go back to his current year (1985) and use the almanac to win bets for the next 15 years. Biff already lived in 1950 and easily made his fortune on horse races (which someone already addressed in on this post).

    If it was referring to a person from 2009, it would really make very little sense to go back so far. Find a year when gold worth was high, buy a lump of gold, take it back to that year, sell it, use the money to bet on long shots, put it in an account and go home.

    Here`s what you can do without a time machine. Knowing full well that the economy regularly has massive swings up and down, wait until the next "oh my god it was a one in a million shot we never could have predicted it" market crash, buy a bunch of stock in companies that look like they`re probably gonna survive it, wait until people start gushing about how great the economy is doing, and sell it, put your money in a savings acount, wait for the next big crash, repeat.

    Since it`s obviously after 2000 because you have a 1950-2000 almanac, and since you know casinos don`t do sports book until 1974, don`t go back to 1950, just go back to 1974.

    Duh!
