Keep in mind 2 important factors here: the VHS was sealed and was being sold by one of the actors.VHS copy of 'Back to the Future' sells for $75,000, setting a new auction record
Talk about nostalgia. I wonder how much are those Shirley Temples VHS tapes are worth these days?
... agree as I think the "sold by one of the actor=celebrity' is the main factor here.Keep in mind 2 important factors here: the VHS was sealed and was being sold by one of the actors.
Most people don't buy tapes and keep them on the shelf for almost 40 years... now I feel old.
There is that. It's just a matter of matching the 2. I'm sure Beenie babies still have a market, it's just a really small one. I know there are some games that hit the news for being auctioned for hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars, but they tend to be rare (early editions), and sealed.

I have my first edition Amiga 1000 w/ monitor that is still operational.I still have a sealed 5.25" floppy that came bound in the back of a uni text circa 1985. WordPerfect.

Like owning the thing and not paying a yearly subscription.
How it pounded out all the words I needed to in Uni, without a need for a hard drive.
One would have been nice, but a warm winter coat to deal with the Ottawa winter won out.
I still have the coat.
A 20MB hard disk and isa controller card would have been long ago tossed.
That is because back when the early devices came out, they had not yet mastered todays skill of making throw away electronics. There were following late 70's early 80's TV manufacturing, which made devices to last.I have my first edition Amiga 1000 w/ monitor that is still operational.
