If I were to get my hands on Checking In, I wouldn't hold it for a King's Ransom. I would share it and expand my want list.

Default Thanks a lot!

Brian--- thanks for the kind words

I don't want this to be one of those threads that goes on and on and on forever---- I mean if people want to charge $100 a vhs tape, good for them

I just think that it is shortsighted on peoples parts!

I mean, I do a LOT of trades a month.... and I prefer to trade, BUT I WILL BUY if i have to! I am cheap and hate to spend the $ but if that is the only way to get a show I really want, then I will bite my tongue and do it


Sellers who sell for $50 a vhs tape, will not do as many sales as someone who sells for $25 a vhs tape....
If I were one of those High Priced Sellers, I would do the math-----

is it better for them to sell 10 vhs tapes for $50 each and make $500---
and then turn down many other potential sales.....
or to lower the price to $25 and then sell 100 tapes a month???

TO ALL YOU HIGH PRICED SELLERS, you will make more $$$ if you lower your costs!!!!!! U might not make as much per tape/disc, but you will make up for it with volume and come out WAY AHEAD!!!!

That said-- I wish them all well, if they can get people to pay the high prices, more power to them... I just am not willing to pay that much, especially for a vhs tape....

I don't know Brian-lol Checking In, a show that hasn't been seen in 24 years, never in syndication, and lasted only 4 weeks. I think i would want somwething very special in return.

Default Well...

Well, OK for Checking in , maybe I would pay $50
BUT my particular situation was wanting THE TONY RANDALL show from him, 41 eps on 11 tapes---and NO i am not willing to pay $400 for that set
i mean, maybe if it was just 1 tape id do $50
but if i am BUYING 11 vhs tapes, i think u can work with me on a more fair price

ok, i understand you can charge whatever you want for vhs ... (throw up ) or for dvd ... so on this forum you allow folks like this to roam and prey on newbies inexperience... i have no more to say on this matter .. but i hope he knows where he can stick his high priced vhs tapes.

Everything I have is on my have list. Everything on my have list, except retails and things still on VHS, is available for trade for anything on my want list. No hoarding, no games, no elitism.

Unfortunately, there are a lot more traders like Retro out there who place this imaginary value on things. If you are looking for these things, then sometimes you have to play along with their game or risk losing out altogether. If you get a rare show, one that would qualify as "something special" to Retro, but you trade it to everyone first, then by the time Retro gets "Checking In" and you try to arrange a trade for that with him, your once-previously very rare show has become "common" to him and you can't do a trade. It's all just BS basically, but that's how some people operate.

You know I find it funny that some traders can have preferences like I only want to trade for DVD but when I say things like-"If I pay $100 for a Rare Show and Don;t want to trade it for a common show'then I get criticized for Hoarding-lol Unbelievable!

I'm sorry, I missed your point. What is the connection between people who trade only for DVDs (which I am not one of by the way since you quoted me) and not trading "rare" shows that you paid $100 for?

I was just saying all traders have certain preferences*and should not be criticized because of them. That's all. Like there are traders who only want Original Network Airings with all commercials and only want the same in return. Just like Traders who prefer emails from DVD traders only. So every trader has a certain preference

If you don't have any common shows on your want list, then that's one thing. Obviously no one is obliged to trade for something they don't want. But if you do want common things and are being picky about what you'll trade for to get them, then that's not a preference, that's hoarding.

There is nothing common on my want list. Anything I want, it's something that is not easy to find. Looking for Uncommon TV Shows and finding them is what makes trading fun.

If RetroTVCollector used a little more honey and a lot less vinegar in his posts and emails, we wouldn't even be having this conversation because his collection would be a whole lot larger than it is.
