Yes, people with a passion for film, nostalgia and collecting buy them.

Collecting ‘nostalgia’ or antiques is always hot. The difference now, the 30–50-year-old generation is looking to own a tangible piece of their childhood, and there's no better way than through one of the most universal outlets, film.

If ‘Sealed,’ it must have the original factory shrink-wrap or other factory-recognized, identifying marks. If ‘Previously Viewed (PV),’ the tape must be original to the box.

We use a 10-point grading scale specific to VHS attributes to assess the condition of a VHS.

We look at FOUR sub-grades to determine our "Overall Box Grade" Corners, Edges, Flaps (how the VHS box is built), and Gloss (surface wear/eye appeal). We use a 10-Point Grading Scale specific to VHS to calculate the Overall Grade from these sub-categories. Our ‘Seal Grade’ is calculated based on the overall condition of the shrink wrap around the sealed VHS. See our Grading Scale on for more information.

The "case within a case" design makes our case itself the ultimate security measure. You would have to hammer our case open, that in turn nullifies the designated grade.

We offer THREE different labels determined by ‘Overall Grade.’ Gold for any VHS receiving a grade of 9.0 to 10, Silver for any VHS receiving a grade of 8.5-8.0 and Red for anything below.

You can't choose the labels. They are designated by the "Overall Grade" of the VHS.

Go to and select the ‘Grade VHS’ option, then simply walk through our easy-to-use submission process. Once you're done with the online submission process, you'll be asked to box up your VHS safely and securely ship to the Beckett facility.

We don't do any type of restoration work. We are purely "form over function" service.
