Could VHS tapes actually be worth money one day?

One collectible expert thinks so, especially if everyone keeps throwing them out at the current rate.

David Jinks of international courier ParcelHero told the UK's Metro that it's time to learn the lesson of vinyl records.

Jinks says many dusty old LPs that were discarded are now worth hundreds, even thousands.

He said that VHS tapes are quickly disappearing from homes, which will add to objects' scarcity.
