Yes, it is rare, but when you consider that in 1982 Star Wars collectors were spending about $120-150 to own the first release of the original VHS cassette of the film that started it all, the $100-200 it is worth today doesn't sound like we are talking about a bonafide put-your-kids-through-college collectible. That isn't what makes this an award winning Totally Ridiculous Auction Hall Of Fame entry however. What does is the fact that the description is lifted directly off of a site that clearly states the item's true value, and still the seller thinks they can get $18,500.00 (or best offer) for a VHS cassette. Yikes! Maybe if the seller receives enough $100-200 offers, he'll get it. Sideways happy face.
