Hi. I am having a sort of eBay sale of stuff I've had over the years and forgot about. If you check my recent listing and sales history, yes I have/had quite a little collection of things Phantom and Lord of the Rings. I came across one of my old DVD's I bought, still in very pristine shape, of "The Phantom of the Opera," a version starring Charles Dance and Burt Lancaster. It was originally aired in 1990 as a TV mini-series. I enjoyed the DVD and practically have the movie memorized, but now it is time to clean things out and I just have not played this DVD for about five years or so. Okay, ON TO THE POINT!
My question is: I want to play fair but have no clue how to price this. I compared it with other sellers and saw a major, major difference. The particular copy I have, going by the UPC code, appears to be collectible. Decent copies are listed for at least $50 here and at Amazon. It says "1999 release" as a description and is regional for USA only. Strange, because this is counterintuitive to me. The older copies listed as 1990 can be played worldwide but are going for a lot cheaper as low as $3.
I don't want to short change myself but perhaps I am too big-hearted with fellow phans as well. Wanting to know why such a strange discrepancy in the pricing?
