LaserDisc Collection... What should I do with it?

Hello all.
I have been trying to shed old "stuff" from the basement and have decided to finally get rid of my LaserDisc collection. Clearly I should have done this a dozen years ago when I might have been able to sell them, but I didn't. Any thoughts on how to dispose of them? I can always post in the classifieds to see if there is a sucker... errrr... person interested in them.

It's hard to imagine many of them have any real value these days and I still have a desire to keep some of them (bad desire! Bad!). Really though, I just need to move on.

Any thoughts?

If they're free for the price of shipping, I'm in.

Craigslist is what I use for low value things, or there may be a garage sale Facebook group in your area as well. I am not sure how large your collection is, there may be some discs worth more than others and you could try ebay. You could also donate to Goodwill or Salvation Army and do a little tax write off.

I have pulled out around 20% of my LaserDiscs and it would seem my (somewhat) eclectic tastes help with these things. According to eBay sales it would seem I have some good ones (The Keep being the best so far).

Goodwill is always an option and I have been making monthly trips as I clean out the basement, but didn't realize they would take these. The tax write off is always helpful!

I think I will go through the rest of them. :-)

You don't have any location info in your profile, but we have a place called "Half Price Books" here in Texas that buys just about any media (including LDs); just don't expect to get a lot for them
IIRC, those with DTS soundtracks tend to get the most attention on auctions sites.

Yamaha RX-A2050 AVR [v1.81], LG 65EF9500 4K OLED [v4.26.00]
5.0.2 set-up: (4) Polk Monitor 10B's, (2) Polk Monitor 4's, Polk CS300 center
B&O TX2 Turntable, Nakamichi Cassette Deck 1
Pioneer CLD-99 LD, Panasonic DMP-UB900 UHD [v1.80]

Duff’s Flix Laserdisc on Facebook buys and sells laserdiscs but if you took out the good ones he may or may not be interested. Also a group Laserdisc Forever on Facebook.
