ADV Trailer Video

I have an ADV Trailer video labelled for Trans World In-Store Trailer Video.

Only thing remotely similar I have found was one with the same cover art but listed as for Babbages

Here > http://www.ebay.com/itm/ADV-FILMS-BABBAGES-TRAILER-Promotional-Promo-199...

I see no sold copies either. Is this really as rare as the ad says? Is my copy likewise rare?

Promo tapes are rare for the simple reason that they were produced in relatively short runs, and most were destroyed/sent back to manufacturer. What you have looks to be no exception to that rule.

I have a Blockbuster 1993 Monthly Promo tape that looks to have been something they either let you rent for free with a rental or played on the screens in the stores. I put it up on Ebay with a high starting price because who knows?

With tapes that are one of a kind or close to it, you just never know what it will sell for or what it is worth. Remember, you are creating the beginning market for it after all.

And yes, I have seen some promo tapes go for $60-$80 on Ebay. Disney promo tapes seem to be particularly popular.

ty that is what I was kind of assuming. I was pretty excited to see it in this box of tapes.
