As a quick search will reveal (on many sites), old Disney VHS tapes are maybe worth anywhere from $5-$45 in the classic clam-shell design some people refer to as being of the, "Black Diamond Collection." Unfortunately, an article in 2016 by Tech Times simply looked at what people wanted for Disney movies and assumed rubes were actually paying thousands for Disney tapes. In other words, there were a handful of people posting stuff at dumb prices for absurd reasons, then this article came out and inspired a bunch of people to dig-out their dusty Disney tapes and also post them for laughably-high asking prices. Sadly, since 2016 other sites have perpetuated this myth of imaginary value. Seriously, as recently as February of this year there have been websites with new articles that have authors who clearly didn't do their research.
