I am new to usenets so please bear with me. I would like to sell my
laserdisc collection in an effort to minimize my "stuff". There are
some good titles here and several containing material not on DVD (to
my knowledge). All are in near-mint condition and I have played all
of them recently with no problems. I have been offered $2 apiece from
laserdiscvault.com, and I assume they will reimburse me for shipping.
Is this a good deal? Or is there a better way to sell the lot for
more? Anybody out there want to make me an offer? Any suggestions
would be appreciated. The catalog number is listed after the title.
Thanks for reading!

I am new to usenets so please bear with me. I would like to sell my
laserdisc collection in an effort to minimize my "stuff". There are
some good titles here and several containing material not on DVD (to
my knowledge). All are in near-mint condition and I have played all
of them recently with no problems. I have been offered $2 apiece from
laserdiscvault.com, and I assume they will reimburse me for shipping.
Is this a good deal?
$2 apiece for some of your titles would be criminal; as for example
the collectors editions of ALIEN and ALIENS and the Terminator 2:
Judgment Day (Ultimate Special Edition Leather-Bound Box Set Gold
Embossed).

I would assume nothing about reimbursement for shipping; ask them
because shipping is NO LONGER INEXPENSIVE for anything especially
bulky and relatively-heavy laserdisc packages. Often it's best if
a buyer can be found within driving distance who can pick them up
so it'd be good to mention your location (e.g., city and state if
in the USA).
Post by Brent Paton
Or is there a better way to sell the lot for
more? Anybody out there want to make me an offer? Any suggestions
would be appreciated. The catalog number is listed after the title.
If I didn't already have those which I want, I'd make an offer for
several titles -- it's a good collection and your inclusion of the
catalog numbers helps immensely. I wish more sellers would do that.

"Back in the day" we used to sell, swap, trade and buy LDs right here
in this group person-to-person (vs. any of the auction sites or lists);
I've bought 100s of LDs this way over the years.

Thanks for the response! Yes, I guess I have held on to them for
quite a while past "back in the day" and now there is not as much
interest in them. And, yes many of the box sets I bought for $99.00-
$149.00 and a lot of the others were $49.00-$69.00, so $2 seems really
a shame. I would hold on to them but I am trying to have less stuff
around the house. I actually transferred everything I could not find
on DVD to DVD-R myself through my computer, so I feel I can finally
let the collection go without too much regret. I did e-mail
laserdiscvault to inquire about how shipping would work since it would
obviously cost more to ship than I am getting in return...
Thanks again for your time in responding.

You do know that transferring them to DVD is a copyright violation,
right? If you kept the laserdiscs, you might be able to argue that you
still have the original "licensed" material; without that, you haven't a
leg to stand on.

Yes, you're totally right. I will have to keep those titles for now.

Exactly, that's what I do with my 400+ titles. Just make sure that you
keep the appropriate hardware in good working shape.
