Disney VHS lavish cost

I was looking at some disney vhs tapes on the web and I noticed that the cost was somewhere between $1,000 - $30,000 per tape. When I was looking at keywords of the tapes I noticed it was "Black Diamond". I will use the vhs tape "Beauty and the Beast" (1992) as an example because I own that tape. People are trying to sell the tape for ridiculous amounts of cash, and they claim its "Black Diamond", but I compared my tape with the tapes on the market and they're exactly the same. So what's the deal? Are people just trying to trick others into buying a $5 tape at the cost of $30,000? Is it actually worth something? Or are they just ludacris?

I think it all started with one of those clickbait Buzzfeed articles. Since then, some people have fallen for it hook, line and sinker. It's absolutely ludicrous! Those tapes are worth next to nothing because they sold so much units in their day. Disney ruled the home video market. Remember Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and The Lion King? These people have GOT to remember that Disney videos are amongst the bestselling videos of ALL TIME.

They may be listed for those prices, but they aren't being sold for anything near those prices.

Its Ebay, you can list anything for practically any price you want.  Sold data is what is controlling as to real value.

I personally laugh and dont care about this "fake bubble".  I've been able to move common tapes that were worth .25 before for $5-$10 now as people try to buy low and sell high.

I can get these tapes many times a week at thrift stores so its a good cash grab.
