    I have about a 100 or so laser discs that I want to sell and I am looking for sites to place ads that eager buyers (if there are any) might frequent. I will be posting here and AVSforum. Any other ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Of course, there's the ever-lovin' Ebay! You could try the Exchange Forum at Dvd Talk. Better yet, send me a list! I'm always looking and I'm still buying (but I'm willing to trade also). Hopefully, you've got some good stuff.

    Peter,
    I've been using EBAY alot lately. I'm helping my Dad sell off some of his. If you have the right ones, they get alot of $$. Music Videos and old movies seem to fetch the most.

    I had about 75 LDs. I checked "Completed Sales" on eBay for some of the better titles only to see that most went for under $5, some didn't even get bids on them. When you think about all the work that you'd have to go into to put up that many LDs only to get no bids on them, I figured it wasn't worth my trouble, threw them out, and played with my kids instead [​IMG]

    Peter,
    Check eBay to see what they are worth. A few make money on their own. Sell them like that. The rest won't make much at all (esp. if available on DVD) but can probably be sold as a collection. Don't expect a lot of revenue. Good luck. I am just keeping mine b/c you NEVA know!

    Thanks for the comments guys. The situation is about as dismal as I thought. Anyway I'll put together my list and see what happens.

    I'll email you a copy of the list.

    He had a plan. Maybe you just didn't see it 'til it hit you between the eyes. But, it started to make sense... in a Tyler sort of way. No fear. No distractions. The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide.

    Chuck! I would like that Signature edition of Frighteners too! And coincidentally, there is an auction for it up on ebay, but its only being sold with a bunch of other movies and a player! Even if you can find it by itself, expect to pay over $100 for it!

    I'm seeking out Hollywood stuff from the 30s and 40s on laserdisc, since so little is out on DVD. If you're collection covers that realm, drop me a line.

    Cheers
