VHS Tapes That Are Now Worth A Fortune

Before DVDs and streaming services people watched movies & TV shows on Video Home System (VHS) tapes. The first tape was created by the Victor Company of Japan in the early 70s, but they weren’t released in America until August 23, 1977.

After its arrival in the United States, VHS tapes became the most popular media platform of the 80s and 90s. Since these tapes aren’t made anymore, some people were smart enough to hold on to this outdated piece of technology. These VHS tapes are now worth a lot of money.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was Walt Disney’s first feature-length animated film. Even though it was released in 1938, new generations of Disney fans have watched it on various media platforms over the years.

When Disney released their collection of VHS tapes, many of them were given a Black Diamond status making them extremely valuable today. Sites like eBay have this particular tape listed for almost $8,000. Someone would need to get their hands on a poison apple to afford these prices.
