Charity shops don't want them, rubbish tips don't want them, and you've probably got a bin bag full of them in your attic. There is only one word for VHS, and that is "obsolete".
So could 2016 really be the year VHS joins vinyl and cassette tapes in making a comeback? Possibly. Only around 50% of movies available on VHS have ever made it over to DVD and there are many trailers, interviews and pieces of cover art that just aren't available on any other format, especially from the horror genre.
After years of being largely underground, VHS collecting is on the brink of raising its head into the nostalgia-loving modern society of today. So if you've got any banned, obscure, video nasties in your collection, this might be the year to get that bin bag down from the attic and store them somewhere mould and dust free.
Copies of 1979's Satan War, The Beast in Heat (1977), and 1973's Lemora Lady Dracula all trade for more than $1,000.
Just don't put that copy of Mrs Doubtfire you've watched 50 times on eBay for $300, please.
ROLLING STONES MEMORABILIA SURGES IN VALUE
In April, London's Saatchi Gallery will host Exhibitionism, the first major show covering the history of the Rolling Stones, spanning their remarkable 50-year history.
Unlike the Beatles, who are viewed less like a band and more like a treasured stately home these days, we feel the Stones are taken for granted because they're still a living, breathing rock 'n' roll band.
It might be a case of "you don't know what you've got 'till it's gone", but this exhibition, with nine rooms and 500 original artefacts, could make people appreciate them as legends a little more. Expect some record-breaking, "Bowie Exhibition"-level ticket sales too as the show travels the world.
FIRST ARTWORK AUCTIONS FOR MORE THAN $200 MILLION
This looks set to be the year we see the first piece of art break the $200 million mark at auction. Since Munch’s The Scream sold for $119.9 million in 2012, we’ve seen a new record set each year.
The current holder, Picasso’s Les Femmes d’Alger, made $179 million last year. This means the record has grown by 14.2% a year over the past three years.
A 14.2% increase this year would push the record well over $200 million. The fact that a work by Modigliani almost beat the sum paid for Picasso in the dying days of 2015 indicates the incredible health of the market.
The question is not so much if the record will be pushed past $200 million this year, but when - and which artist?
COLLECTORS TRAVEL THOUSANDS OF MILES TO BUY VINTAGE PYREX
Last year Pyrex celebrated its 100th birthday with a hugely popular exhibition at New York's Corning Museum of Glass, educating newbies on the history of these mid-century icons of homeware. It's now official: Pyrex is back, and people are collecting it in a big way.
