Does anyone know if some type of price guides exist for old Coliseum Video, or other out of print video's? I notice for some reason The British Bulldogs WWF Coliseum video is the rarest ever, going for up to $120.00 on Ebay. Is there anything anywhere online regarding how many of each video was pressed, what the most rare and common video's are? I also hear some of the very last WCW pay per views are also extremely rare.
Many Coliseum Video releases are easy to find on eBay, and often for good prices. Some of the older ones are tough, though....for example, I haven't had any luck finding the Demolition one. You'd be surprised how often these turn up in liquidation bins at franchise video outlets too...when we got our new Jumbo Video they brought the full stock from a North Bay shop with them, and ended up selling a ton of old WWF and WCW tapes at 3/$15. Just gotta get lucky in finding them.
A number of NWA/WCW PPVs are tough to find unless you're a reasonably active trader. Some were never released on home video (the 2001 ones, for example, with the occasional one like SuperBrawl IV which was just skipped for some reason), and many of the earlier ones were released but clipped so you only get the main matches.
I don't think price guides exist simply because there's not much of a market for them. If you wanna get an idea of relative scarcity and eBay isn't cutting it for you, you can go to Amazon.com and search for them. Often times they'll have products listed that they don't have in stock, but people will have them for sale in the Amazon Marketplace. Check them out, you might have some luck there.
thanks for suggsting that link but I dont hink its too accurate. It lists practically all the old Coliseum Video (and two laserdics!) All the prices on there say they go $59.95 or $39.95. I wish someone out there can come out with a comprehensive site dedicated to facts, tidbits and value of the old videos.
Interesting interview with Rodney Mack, where he talks about the locker room contrast from the WWE to ECW, "old school" wrestling versus "sports entertainment," and trying to run your own promotion. Hyperlink: http://www.twnpnews.
