out of print list

Hi,

I'm thinking about compiling a list of out of print DVDs and their approximate values, but, before such an undertaking, I want to make sure someone hasn't already done this. I've seen sites listing OOP DVDs, but usually it's just a list with no values. Also, can someone provide me with links to those sites that do have lists?

Thanks,

The most complete list is at:

I don't know of any comprehensive site that lists 'values' of OOP titles... that's definitely an interesting idea. Although, obviously, values for many titles fluctuate as new editions are released.

Still, it would be an interesting thing to try, if you were up to the task.

The value of out of print dvds is available in the completed items section of Ebay. For many people Ebay is quickly becoming the competitive market clearing center for items in our current USA economy. What it is worth is what someone on Ebay will pay you. Any major out of print dvd title will be actively traded on Ebay, but beware of bootlegs.

johnglad, so you think people would not find such a list useful; and would instead just go to Ebay, type in the title, and see what the going rate is?

this is what I do however, having a guide would be useful. The problem with ebay (good/bad) is that it is a volitile market. If you take baseball cards or coins as an example; there are respected publications that print priceguides every month. These publications are useful and help set the market value. While ebay can be useful, for truly rare items (? if DVD can be truly rare) it doesn't help the educated buyer to set an upper limit of what they want to pay -- or the seller a price on what to expect. A price guide can do this.

I think you would be constantly updating the list plus ebay values for any particular DVD will fluctuant depending on condition, seller feedback, etc.

Lists like this already exist, including the ones mentioned in the FAQ. Closing thread.
