from chron,

"...you need to own it on VHS, for which the market has likely ballooned now that a copy was sold by Texas' Heritage Auctions for $75,000.
Granted, the one sold last week is far from a normal VHS. First, it’s sealed in its original Shrinkwrap, including the white MCA Home Video watermark, making it an even rarer collectible given that the classic time-travel comedy starring Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly is now 36 years-old. Second, this specific copy of the film was auctioned by its original owner, actor Tom Wilson, who played a history book’s worth of McFly family bullies throughout the films, most notably Biff Tannen.

Heritage Auctions also just sold a near-mint-plus VHS copy of "The Goonies," featuring a white wraparound Warner HV watermark that collectors apparently covet, for $50,000, and a mint copy of a 1983 "Jaws" VHS release sold for $32,500.

Who buys movies and then do not even open it and think just to save it for 50 years or so!
