Dust off your old VHS collection - you might score a fortune!

Disney fanatics are paying thousands of pounds for vintage VHS tapes and you could be sitting on a small fortune.

A bundle of 10 original Disney video tapes are selling to the tune of £14,000, with individual copies going for a smaller (but still decent) price.

The collection includes classics such as Aladdin, Cinderella, Robin Hood and The Little Mermaid - but also some rarer titles like The Rescuers: Down Under, and Basil the Great Mouse Detective.

A slight catch, is that these high-priced VHS tapes are part of the Black Diamond Disney collection which were sold between 1984 and 1993.

The value of different Black Diamond editions vary drastically, with Sleeping Beauty thought to only be worth around £50, while The Lady and the Tramp is listed at £2,500.

Just like any eBay listing, the prices are only the seller's estimate of its worth and not a guarantee that yours will sell for that amount.

VHS tapes are making somewhat of a comeback lately, with Urban Outfitter's US stores selling the vintage format in 'mystery bundles' defined by different genres for 80s romance, 90s comedy, sci-fi, or horror.
