A few months ago I had to help clean out and old guy's basement. He had a hobby his wife did not know about so I had to practice a bit of chivalry and haul some of the contraband away to save his reputation.

I am housing a box of 1970s 8mm XXX films. The stuff you found advertised in the back of men's magazines. The XXX stuff that shipped out of Van Nuys California. If I were 20 years old I would probably be getting my eyes full. I'm 68 and my only interests is to see if these old films have any value. If they have any value I would like to sell them but I'm not sure how one would approach this; This is why I am still tripping over them

If they are worthless, then they are going to the dumpster.

Any ideas?

Any buyers? I'll send them to you in a plain brown wrapper

Ask ToddTuckey, he knows alot about film and shows some old stuff he had for sale in some of his TNT videos.

Everything is collectible to someone. I'd stick them on eBay. Looks like they'd go for around $10 each in one big lot.

OP you would probably find reddit to be more helpful than pinside on this.

It would be interesting to see what some of those women look like today (45 or 50 years later). Bet you wouldn't what to see many of them with their cloths off now!

Not even two weeks into the new year and you’re already looking to break your resolution

And yet people still lining up to buy Elvira pins.....

They are worth some money. I'm in the auction business and have sold film and photos, vintage xxx stuff does sell.

Best bet it to probably auction it since is really goes all over the place.
Ebay would work but be careful how you list it, make sure it's in adults only. If you go this route make sure to get photos of the actual material on the film to increase interest.

Be careful as the acetate film material breaks down after a long time.
