I was in the Tigard, Oregon Goodwill today and they had about 15 CED's in the
glass display case. "Star Wars" was priced at $69.99 and the remaining discs
were $39.99 each, so you could get "The Stunt Man" for the bargain price of $79.98.
As anybody who tracks CED's on Ebay will know, these are grossly over inflated
prices, and I expect to still see those discs sitting there when I visit that
store again in a month or so. The following URL will show a list of most of the
recently completed CED auctions on Ebay:

Looking through the listing, the average price a CED goes for at auction is around
$3, and there are a lot of auctions in which no one bids, even a few with $1 starting
bids. Figuring shipping into the value of the disc, I'd say $5 is a good estimate for
the value of a typical CED. Condition and Rarity don't seem to have much of a role in
value at this point in time except for the very rare stuff. With over 20 million discs
having been pressed and a comparatively small pool of collector's, it's still a buyer's

We have over 100 CED movies and specials for sale.  As well as a couple
of players (non-working).  How can we get in touch with someone from
this area (SF Bay, northern Calif)?
