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. – Walt Oct 23 '15 at 1:41

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... – Ryan Veeder Oct 23 '15 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. – JoelFan Oct 23 '15 at 14:19

    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. – steelersquirrel Oct 23 '15 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 – Often Right Oct 23 '15 at 21:30
