Valuation and selling advice website, Flipsy, has once again produced a compelling article concerning the value of movie software, but this time for Blu-ray discs. Even though the launch of the hi-def silver platter just doesn’t seem that long ago, already there are certain titles and editions commanding extraordinary prices, sometimes pushing the $500 mark.
For example, Arrow’s Hellraiser Scarlet box set is worth hundreds of dollars. A Steelbook edition of Friday the 13th might also fetch $300, and there are quite a number of Criterion Blu-rays starting to grab collectors’ attention. As our readers here will be aware, a lot of titles from the independent distributors are only released as limited editions, so often the secondary market is the only way to locate certain movies.
As might be expected, and according to the article, condition of a disc is a major factor, with unopened and never-played discs realizing better returns. Collectors are also typically looking for all original included materials, such as booklets and o-cards (open-ended slip covers).
Flipsy says it has interviewed a number of top experts to find out how much Blu-Ray discs are worth, how to find the value of any Blu-Ray, and also gives advice where to sell them. Seems like a pretty good resource for hobbyists, collectors and film lovers who want to know the value of their Blu-Rays or are thinking about cashing in.
