Now, let me just say this, I caught on to MST3K at the tail end of it's run on Sci Fi, and I loved it. I've seen very few episodes, and would love to get ahold of all of them. But
.I'm really not trying to get anyone in trouble here,really I'm not, but I can't believe this is legit..so as terribly bad as I'd like to, I cannot bid on this. There is absolutely no way this is legal
right? I have to be right. My conscious tells me I'm right. I'm right, yes? God ,I'd love to see Space Mutiny again.

Not sure if it's legal/illegal but if they're anything like my old VHS recordings of MST3K I wouldn't be inclined to pay good money for them
kind of fuzzy, full of commercials, occasional flashes of the random junk (porn) I recorded over.

Unless there is some law governing how long a TV recording can be kept, or whether it can be resold, I can't see why there would be a problem. If he was running off multiple copies, then that would be a problem, but since he's not making any more copies, then I can't see why he'd be breaching any copyright laws.

I believe he can only make copies for his own usage, but he cannot legally transfer them to someone else.
Besides, VHS tapes have a limited shelf life

I believe there is a 35-DVD set of every episode. Hmmm
looking online I see 75-DVD collections and one that spans 95 DVDs? Yow.
I'd kind of like to see them all again, but don't have the time or money.

Also, you can watch MST3K on Amazon Prime. Probably NetFlix, too
Much cheaper and the IP owners get their $0.99 USD a view (or somesuch).
Also, can't follow the link (its me), but the Ed is correct that you can't legally record something off TV and then sell it.
