Classic Walt Disney films are selling on eBay for hundreds of pounds, and if you still have any of the VHS collections you could be looking at up to £14,000!
As a child you probably grew up watching the Walt Disney classics such as Beauty & The Beast, Cinderella and Snow White. Over the years you’ll have gone from having these films in VHS format to play on the old video recorders, before upgrading to DVDs when they became the brand new way to watch a movie.
But did you know that you could be sitting on a small fortune?
If you’re one of the lucky ones who bought Walt Disney classics in VHS, you could earn yourself thousands of pounds.
A bundle of 10 original Disney video tapes are currently selling on eBay for nearly £14,000 – including classics such as Aladdin, Cinderella, Robin Hood and The Little Mermaid.
These tapes in particular are from the Black Diamond collection – that is, the 18 animated films that were sold between the years 1988 to 1992.
eBay’s buying guide for Why You Should Be Collecting Disney Black Diamond VHS’s states that the tapes are ‘easy to identify by the Black Diamond found on the Spine of the case with the Walk Disney’s Signature located inside the Diamond.’
But while the Black Diamond editions are usually worth more, their value varies drastically depending on the title.
On average, classics like Sleeping Beauty are thought to only be worth around £50, while Beauty & The Beast and Aladdin are selling for around £1,770.
Rare versions of Lady & The Tramp from the same collection that also include a red Walt Disney signature are going for as much as £5489.83.
