Remember the good old days when having the latest and greatest technology meant owning a VCR and a great collection of VHS tapes? It wasn’t that long ago when the bulky videocassette boxes occupied pride of place right next to our televisions. In fact, throughout most of the 80s and 90s they ruled supreme, all the way up until DVD players came along. After that they were slowly phased out and today they’re considered all but obsolete.
Even though VHS tapes are no longer even made anymore, plenty of people still have at least a couple of them hanging around the house somewhere. Most collections have been long forgotten and the tapes go unused, collecting dust and sitting in boxes. However, if you never tossed the tapes out or donated them to Goodwill, then you may be in luck because certain VHS tapes are worth up to thousands of dollars today!
What’s driving the seemingly crazy prices and demand for old tapes? Collectors of course! Animated Walt Disney movies in particular are fetching some serious cash and depending on the condition they’re in, and for some titles what edition they are, they could be worth a small fortune. If you have any of the classic Disney movies on VHS tape listed below, you could be sitting on a windfall because they are potentially worth more than you could ever imagine!
Dumbo- Everyone’s favorite childhood elephant is in high demand and copies on eBay are worth up to $2800. If you have a VHS tape that sports a green triangle with the letter ‘U’ in it and the iconic Walt Disney signature on the cover, then you can count yourself as one of the lucky ones.
