VHS tapes have become a thing of the past but many of us have yet been able to bring ourselves to get rid of our collections of videos from the attic. It turns out that this may have been a wise decision as the rarer the videos become, the more valuable some of them becoming.
And there are some tapes out there that could fetch you an eye watering fortune of thousands if you’re lucky. if you’ve got a spare afternoon coming up, root through your collections and see if you can find any of these VHS tapes identified by loveantiques.com that may be worth a bomb.
Some are banned films, some are limited edition and some are just mega rare. But all of them could make you far richer than if you were to flog them at a car boot sale. They’re rare – but they’re out there somewhere.

The site’s advisor has suggested looking for VHS releases that have never been released on DVD or Blu-ray and added that the most valuable tapes are one-off releases or those banned because they were categorised as ‘video nasties’.
