If You Have Any Of These VHS Tapes, You Could Be Sitting On Thousands Of Dollars [VIDEO]

When things became obsolete, they eventually became worthless. Just like the VCR’s, which became groundbreaking in 1980’s and 1990’s. However, collectors recently become crazy and they are paying thousands dollar for certain VHS tapes that you probably have in your collection.

On eBay and LoveAntiques it seems we may have been right, as some Disney VHS tapes (well, those tapes marked with a black diamond on the side with the words Classics Collection in it) appear to be selling for thousands of dollars.

Here’s a list of the some of the most valuable types of tapes (and how much they’re going for):

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: The first movie Walt Disney ever made is going to be worth something. Many different editions exist. But the 1994 Masterpiece Collection Edition will fetch you about $1,000.

The Jungle Book: If you’re looking to cover your bare necessities, then sell a copy of this Walt Disney movie. With buyers spending about $1,000 on it, The Jungle Book could cover your food for several months.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame: Even if you hated this particular film, you might change your tune on it when it brings in $1,500 on eBay. Just snap a picture and post it onto the auction website and people can start bidding on it.

Dumbo: This Walt Disney Classic was a hit back when it came out. But now the VHS is selling for upwards of $2,800 on eBay. If you want to cash in, you need to have the copy of the movie with the Walt Disney signature on it as well as the green triangle with the letter ‘U’ in it.

Cinderella: Look for this “Walt Disney Classic” in your collection and cash in big. Last June a Black Diamond copy of this film sold for $5,000.


Aladdin: This classic movie from the 1990s was a hit for fans across the globe. Featuring an iconic role from Robin Williams as the genie, “Aladdin” was a huge success. But users are looking for a very specific copy of the VHS movie. Those with the Black Diamond copy can find buyers willing to drop up to $10,000 for this 1993 VHS.

The Fox and the Hound: This 1981 classic is a great copy to sell for a lot of cash. While it isn’t even a movie many remember, this movie about friendship recently sold for $10,000.

Beauty and the Beast: A gold mine waiting to be bought, a copy of this Disney movie sold for $17,000. Now that’s a huge amount of money for anyone looking to retire early.

You better go ahead and start digging through your parents’ basement in search of those childhood relics.
