How Much are Your Disney VHS Tapes Worth?

Wondering how much your old Dumbo, Bambi or Jungle Book VHS tape is worth these days???

Well, according to this recent article from Snopes.com, your Disney tapes are probably worth something, but old Disney VHS values are not remotely close to as much as has been widely reported.  (Tweet this)

Over the past few months, I have seen a number of posts on blogs and news sites reporting that rare “Black Diamond” editions of the Disney classics on VHS were going for thousands of dollars on eBay. This was due to the rarity of the series of tapes.

Snopes points out in their investigative piece that, while there are a number of Black Diamond listings for thousands of dollars on eBay, there are only few that have fetched over $20. Thus indicating that it is a case of hopeful suppliers and uninterested buyers. They further explain that the Disney Black Diamond VHS tapes are not exactly rare, but are becoming collectible.

Here is a handy list of the Disney Black Diamond VHS releases.

All hope is not lost. As we all know, just about everything goes up in value over time, so these Disney VHS tapes may not be worth that much now, but keep them and eventually they will. In the meantime, you have a great video on your hands. Grab some popcorn and enjoy it! (if you still have a VHS player)

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
