I don't think I have seen any San Fran footage. It's a shame so much is gone. The only reason we have Portland footage is because of people taping it.

I've seen the occasional San Fran TV segments on YouTube of the Valiant Brothers, Roddy Piper, Bob Roop vs. Kevin Sullivan, Alexis Smirnoff, Don Muraco, Buddy Rose and a few others but it's very heavily edited off the broadcasts.  Most of it seems to be taped out of the Channel 40 studios.   
A SF area fan named Dorothy Hopkins had an extensive photo collection as well as some video filmed at ringside from The Cow Palace and possibly other towns.  I was fortunate to watch Patterson vs. Stevens footage one year at CAC, about 5-6 minutes.  It wasn't footage that would have aired on their TV but it captured the excitement of their heyday.
