Every time you think things can't get any dumber with this grading of anything deemed "collectible", it does. Roll Eyes

So what they want by saying "factory sealed (with watermark or security seal) VHS tapes", is sealed, unopened, unused VHS tapes. They will then grade the boxes, because the tapes are untouched, and put them in a bigger clear, slabbed box with their grade.

However there is also mention of loose grading of presumably opened and used VHS tapes, but they only seem to be accepting certain titles. I wonder if they are checking if they still play well, or if the rewinder did them in? Let's hope they can find a VHS player. Big Grin

Show of hands, would you pay $2,520 for a graded 1984 GI Joe Firefly VHS? Somebody did according to the website and I wish them the best. Wink

I still do have a few VHS tapes, but the player is disconnected, and I forgot how to hook it up. I don't expect to be grading them.

Yeah, well, there are serious G.I. Joe collectors out there. What do you do when you have all the figures going back to the 70's and all the accessories and playsets (White Tiger Hunt, Shark's Surprise - fun stuff)? Then, you hear there are hard to find G.I. Joe cartoons on VHS that maybe didn't get transferred to DVD. Suddenly, you have a want list again and something to ask your old contacts about.

I did find a book of entertainment themed gift cards (about 200 of em) in my collection. I guess I collect those too.

Hey Jess,

Yeah I could see that as far as picking up something you can never use just because it fits into your title. But if the tape is shrink wrapped, sealed and unused, does someone need it slabbed and graded too?

At some point enough should be enough. I think things sometimes go too far in the various collectibles markets, not just in cards, because collectors are resigned to say "buy whatever you like", when sometimes the response should be, "Dude, you're wasting your money". Big Grin
