Old VHS Tapes Worth Money Collectors Are Scrambling to Get Their Hands on
Chances are you have a box of old VHS tapes in your garage or attic that you've been meaning to donate or throw away. Before you do, take a look at this list of some of the most valuable VHS tapes and make you some money!
The world of collecting can seem...well, it can seem a little strange.
The saying "One man's trash is another man's treasure" certainly rings truest in the world of collecting. You just never know what things you have sitting around the house collecting dust someone else is dying to get their hands on.
We all know about the value of things like comic books, baseball cards, vinyl albums, and toys, but the world of collecting goes so much farther than these things.
For example, VHS tapes.
You know, those old clunky tapes you have stashed away in the back of your closet that you'll never watch again because you haven't had a VCR in 20 years.
Go ahead and dig them out to see what you got because there's gold in them thar hills!
Right now, an original 1986 VHS of the movie "Halloween" is selling for $299.
Obviously, the condition of the VHS tape and box or case has a lot to do with the collectible value.
Also just as obvious but needs to be stated, something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Prices on collectibles can also vary wildly from day to day.
