I believe the Tex Avery Collection is worth some $, as it has not been issued on DVD, and almost certainly never will be. My Criterion version of The Magnificent Ambersons
isn't out on DVD, and probably won't be. It is a unique reconstruction of Welles' original cut, using stills and script for the destroyed parts of the print. That may be worth some $. I have a few other things, some Criterion, that won't be released again. But, most of my LDs aren't that valuable, and as I noted earlier, are often available on DVD for bargain prices. And, as Citibear notes, some are deteriorated. I know this is true of Yellow Submarine, Bliss,
and one of the four sides of Wings of Desire.
If I decide to put them on e-bay, I'll let you know.
