They would be for me, especially for those which are also available on DVD. Not sure about everyone else.

A few are relatively rare tapes, the rest not so much.  If they are indeed factory sealed then you do have some premium price wise, but I doubt they would move at $15.  VHS sells on Ebay but usually in the $8-$12 range, including shipping.

Another thing to take into account is how soon you need to sell something.  If you want to unload it fast, aggressively drop price in the 30-60 day window.

Also, a factor to consider is how many "free" listings you have on your account.  If you have only 30, you burn a listing each 30 day period it goes without selling, and it costs more to list each one over 30.

My rule of thumb is I put the price 25-50% higher than the minimum I would take for the item, then every time Ebay wants me to relist, I drop the price about 10%, until I reach my minimum, then I stick to that price every time I relist until it is sold.
