Default How much would you sell your blu ray collection for?

I know most people here including me would not do this, but thinking hypothetically: If you ever decided to sell your entire blu ray movie collection, how much would you sell it for? And would you sell it according to the usual price of used movies or would sentimental value influence the final price?

No less than $30,000 cash. And a written promise from the buyer to replace all the important titles within the year

Since I don't really own any rare versions in my collection (as far as I know), I would probably go around the 3k-5k range.

Both sound reasonable. I wonder if there'd be people willing to pay thousands for a collection.

one million dollars, no less, no exceptions.
The best number is 73. Why? 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror, 37, is the 12th and its mirror, 21, is the product of multiplying 7 and 3... and in binary 73 is a palindrome, 1001001, which backwards is 1001001.
Films I'd like to see on Blu-Ray Disc:
Un Chien Andalou (1929)
Scarface (1932)
ABC Weekend Specials (19771995) [TV Movies]

I don't know if I could put a price on the value my film collection gives me. Of course, I'm sure collectively it's worth some arbitrary number, but the experience a film you love gives you cannot be replicated with money.

OK I'd never sell it but if I had to I don't think I could go lower than 10K. I have quite a few rare and OOP titles. My collection is around 1800 movies so I guess that's fair. Tons of Scream Factory, Criterion, Arrow and Kino titles.

Ha, well if I sold the (not large) collection for what I paid for it, I could then re-buy it at todays prices & have a lot of money left over

$40,000 plus transport/shipping expenses.

I'd replace the James Bond movies and a few key film noir movies shortly afterward, of course.

We all want top dollar while dreaming AND if we were psychotic enough to sell it. But we'd never get what we asked or wanted for it.
Hell, I couldn't get a penny over $15k if I sold mine when it should go at a fair price of around $30-35k Realistically.
If someone actually wanted to pay my asking price? Not a penny under $50K which includes shipping.

That's the figure that popped into my brain.

I mean, Blu-ray is the mostly the last place I'm going to be buying physical movies from. I may eventually dabble into a 4K player in order to get better copies of certain films I REALLY enjoy... but I'd still just play those discs in 1080p on my 1080p HDTV. And since so many of the films I love are already in 'I'll take that' quality or better on Blu... there's very little I'd actually buy in 4K.

Not to mention all I went through over the years to build my collection. That's kinda priceless.
