VHS Tapes and Their Value

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this is covered elsewhere - I've looked and couldn't see anything.

I've got a loft full of old VHS wrestling tapes. Some pre-WWE era WWF, WWE, WCW, ECW, loads of US indies.

If they're originals and boxed are they worth the time and effort of listing somewhere like here or on eBay or (as I suspect) is VHS such a dead format that they're just not worth anything?

Same goes for if they're not originals (i.e. copies of indy stuff made from a master tape).

Cheers for any advice.

The best thing to do is have a look on eBay to see what the stuff you're trying to shift is going for. In my experience only stuff that is very rare and in near mint condition picks up more than a few quid.

I still collect vhs but I don’t like to pay more than £1 each plus the postage. If any good to you send me a list of what you have as still looking for a quite a few I’m missing. Thanks.

I also still look for tapes. They dont sell for much these days but if your lucky enough to find someone who is near you who can pick up you might make a few £. Postage is a nightmare for vhs. I always check local pages and bootsales personaly.

you can send up to 5 vhs (under 2kg) Royal Mail 2nd class for £2.90. I do it all the time as I also collect and trade ex rental vhs tapes.

It can get expensive if the package weighs over 2kg so 5 tapes max. 6 tapes can put it over and will cost £13.75 quite a jump. If you are sending more than 5 it’s cheaper to split them up into 5 or less. Unless you go the courier route if a sending a large amount of tapes.
