As many as 42 tapes from the late actor's personal home collection have been listed on the auction site, ranging in price from $9.49 to $234.50.

Late legendary actor Vincent Price's home VHS collection is up for sale on auction website eBay.

Twenty-three years following the leading man's death at the age of 82 in 1993, as many as 42 personal VHS tapes from Price's library of films and TV shows — including a copy of Brady Bunch Variety Hour ($12.50) — have been made available to the public for purchase by eBay user 3dogreiner.

"We are selling all of Vincent Price's personal videos from his estate," each listing states. "They come with a letter of authenticity from Vincent Price's daughter. Some have notations by Vincent himself. ... All will be sold with no reserve. These need to find their ways to new homes."

The sales pitch is followed by a lengthy biographical description of the actor who starred in such horror films as The Fly, House of Wax and House of Usher, among many others.

The tapes  — all listed in "good" condition and up for sale under "Vincent Price’s Personal VHS Video From the Vincent Price Estate" — include random films like 1951's His Kind of Woman ($22.79) and recorded interviews of the actor, such as a Feb. 25, 1986, Liz Smith sitdown with Price ($20.52).

So far, the sale prices have ranged from $9.49 ("Appreciating Art #1") to the highest-selling VHS purchase of $234.50. The auction expires today. Tapes will be shipped to buyers worldwide from Santa Fe, N.M. — the same place his daughter, Victoria Price, lives and works as an interior designer, art consultant, author and public speaker.

3dogreiner did not immediately return The Hollywood Reporter's request for comment.
