Remember when VCRs were cutting-edge technology. Everyone wanted one and they were truly groundbreaking. Not only did they allow families to watch movies as home easily and affordably, they also allowed you to tape your favorite programs and on-tv movies. They were great. But like anything, they eventually became obsolete and worthless. Or did they?
Because collectors are eager to grab a slice of nostalgia, they are paying top dollar for certain VHS tapes that you probably have in your collection. If you ever bought Walt Disney movies, then you want to keep reading. Some of these old VHS tapes are worth a small fortune and all you have to do to cash in is sell yours online or at an auction.
