Those who belong in the new generation might not be able to understand when one talks about VHS tapes but those that have been born to witness its shot to fame would know. Those VHS collections are out most prized possessions next to a complete set of encyclopedia. Who would have thought that a few decades later VHS tapes would be considered as out of fashion and obsolete? With the rise of new technology, converting VHS to DVD has become a necessity especially if we wanted to preserve our home movies.
For those who are a fan of Disney movies until today, you might still have the VHS tapes of your favorite films. If you are a proud owner of the Black Diamond collection from the Disney Classics, you might want to put off giving it away. This particular edition was only sold from 1984 until 1994. Owning one of these may be life changing for you. Even a single piece thrown into a bunch of VHS tapes would stand out because of its cover.
The Disney classics edition is made using big white boxes that is quite similar to a book. It has a fancier edge compared to other regular VHS films which are usually covered with cardboard boxes. Apparently, owning one of these classics will give the owner a chance to make a lot of money.
Once Disney decided to discontinue production of the Black Diamond collection, it was replaced with a new line called Masterpiece Collection. Turns out, many of the serious collectors are out looking for pieces of the Black Diamond line.
You can head on over at eBay and see for yourself that Cinderella from the Black Diamond classic collection is for sale at $9,500. The line is considered rare because only a few Disney films have been released under the collection including Robin Hood, The Sword in the Stone, Bambi, Pinocchio, 101 Dalmatians, Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo, Alice in Wonderland, The Rescuers, Sleeping Beauty, Fantasia, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, The Great Mouse Detective, The Jungle Book, Lady and the Trump, The Rescuers Down Under, The Fox and the Hound and Aladdin.
Before you decide to throw it away because you have converted the VHS to DVD, you might want to see if it is in good condition and you might be able to earn a few thousands.
