Are my Star Trek TV boxes worth anything?

    I have all seasons of all Star Trek TV shows, which takes up about 6 feet on the top of my entertainment center.

    For ease of use, I eventually transferred all the disc into two large binders.

    At this point, I'm on the verge of throwing out all the boxes unless they're worth something.

    On the other hand, I don't want to sell them to someone who's going to put bootlegs in them and sell again for more.

    Any thoughts?


    EDIT: As a secondary question, is there any reason for concern when storing a fairly large amount of discs in a binder (discs warping or cracking)?

    Take care that the binder doesn't get damaged, avoid high humidity and all should be well. You may find that, eventually, the discs will get scuffed but, if you're careful...

    Yeah. See if you can box them up and store them in the attic or something.

    I'll answer your original question and say that I'd bet you could sell them on eBay to someone who accidentally messed up their box or will use them for their personal bootlegs or use them to scam someone with bootlegs (as you said). You won't make a fortune but it'll be more than you would by tossing them.

    However, I will agree with everyone else and say that if you throw them away or sell them, you'll kick yourself some day.

    I guess I'm not that enamorred with Paramount's TV packaging...

    Every boxset uses super-tight push-to-release button hubs which had me sweating bullets everytime I had to pry a disc out.

    I could file down the hub clips to make them easier to use, but we're talking about 27 seasons here and the binder was just a better solution.

    Now that they're empty, it's getting hard to justify living with 27 empty boxes when I need the space for other stuff.

    Since my TNG digistacks cracked discs (too tight). I have been using Ric Eastons covers in new cases.

    I like the Ships of the Line and Captains Collection.
