Here’s a rundown of WWE DVDs considered rare, that have been auctioned off on eBay (USA) within the past month and sold for whopping prices between $102 and $355.
SummerSlam 2008 DVD (FYE Exclusive Tin) – $102
Not sure if this was just a case of a bidding war ensuing but this one does appear to be harder to come across than other FYE exclusive tins such as SummerSlam 2007.
Vengeance 2002 DVD (ShopZone Exclusive) – $150
No real surprise here, the always sought after 2002 PPV titles that were exclusive to WWE ShopZone in the USA often demand big bucks. In other regions these are still being produced.
Sampler DVD (Chris Benoit/Eddie Guerrero) – $202
Who’d have thought these WWE Sampler promos would become highly desired for collections?
Sampler DVD (Lesnar/HBK/Mysterio) – $250
Another sampler, and they are just that, but try finding them now without paying prices like this!
McMahon Signed WM Anthology DVD Boxset – $260
In this case $260 seems a reasonable price for the leather boxset, limited edition to 1000 units. With more finding this auction it probably would have fetched considerably more.
Trish Stratus DVD (FYE Collector’s Edition) – $297
Often regarded as the rarest retail released WWE DVD out there, the “Collector’s Edition” always goes high when it’s spotted. There’s been an influx in people listing theirs lately, and it’s not surprising for a potential $300. There is another on eBay right now () and it’s been bid up to $295 thus far, so it may even surpass what this one sold for!
Live and Unscripted DVD (WWE Mag Exclusive) – $355
Wow! Even higher than the Trish DVD, this sold last night after the auction fetched a huge $355. Similar to the sampler titles this was just a bonus DVD, sent to WWE Magazine subscribers. It just shows it’s not about what the content is, it’s the rarity factor. By the way, this one was not even still sealed. Live and Unscripted just might be the rarest non-retail released WWE DVD.
What do you think, would you pay these prices to complete your collection?
