Lucky People Who Kept Their Old Disney VHS Tapes Could Make A Fortune
Here's What Your Disney VHS Tapes Are Really Worth
Lately, there have been many media outlets reporting that VHS tapes of classic Disney movies have become so rare and coveted, you can sell the ones sitting in your closet . According to those claims,Beauty and the Beastis one of the top moneymakers, especially if it says "The Classics" in a black diamond on the side of the cover. But before you quit your day job and take up selling VHS tapes on eBay full-time, Snopes has unearthed some important details behind those big claims.
First off, it's important to note that eBay users can list anything they want for whatever price they want. If you search ',' for instance, you'll likely see eBay listings as high as ,000. But that doesn't mean people are actually paying that much money for the tapes—or even bidding on them at all for that matter.
After conducting our own unscientific search of the site, we didn't find any thousand-dollarBeauty and the BeautyVHS tape listings withactive bidson them. Plus, with over 4,000 currently active listings,Beauty and the BeastVHS tapes don't seem to be that "rare" after all.
For a more accurate idea of what Disney VHS tapes could be worth, we filtered the site for '.' In our search, most of the sold listings were in the to range (or slightly higher, in some cases). Sure, that's more cash than you had in your pocket before, but it's hardly the "jackpot" some are saying it is.
