I seem to remember that Linda McFly's sweatshirt (in the vacation photo) sometimes says 1984 and sometimes another year (1991?). I don't have a screencap and I can't find anything about it online. Is it like that or was I seeing things?

    Not that this is conclusive, but maybe it is simply because they seemed alike? The 84 resembles 91 a bit from the right distance.

Futurepedia says that she did graduate from Hill Valley High School in 1984.

Regarding the actual photograph, see it here with Craig vanished. It's a little bit clearer and looks a little more like '84'

Bear in mind that it can't be '91', because quite simply that Marty came from 1985 - how could he have a photograph of his sister wearing a sweatshirt with 'Class of 91' if he was only from 1985!

    I can think of one way, although it's a bit farfetched... Oct 23, 2015 at 5:50

    People commonly get sweatshirts, etc that say "Class of ..." a year that is 4 years into the future, because that is the year when they will eventually graduate.

    I always thought M J Fox was making a reference to the movie "class of 1984" since he did have a small part in the movie. Linda's shirt says class of '84. Marty says "class of NINETEEN eighty four." Just an observation. Oct 23, 2015 at 15:57
  • @JoelFan considering the article I link to also states that in 1985 she is 19 years old, it's reasonable to think that the previous year she had graduated at age 18 Oct 23, 2015 at 21:30
