That there was this very specific sum of $29,000 put on it makes me think it was probably actually valuable.
If it was very specific, it wouldn't end neatly in three zeroes. There was probably a ballpark estimate for the stuff for the lost discs (at new cost, of course), plus an extra amount for "emotional damages", and then adding a lawyer charge.

I doubt he kept a catalog of any of it.

This article is actually kind of hilarious.

But then again, the fact that they've actually attached a monetary figure makes me think the porn collection may actually have some value, especially if it's well-preserved vintage stuff from the pre-legalization era or the early days of porn in the 1970's and early-to-mid 1980's when the Mafia controlled a lot of the porn industry (especially regarding VHS and film) and a lot of titles went out of print and became very rare.

Of all forms of entertainment, porn is usually the one that depreciates in value the most quickly, but there is a market for vintage porn if it's preserved.

The highest value stuff is the fucked-up Victorian/Edwardian-era artwork and print work and those old 8mm and 16mm "stag films" from the 1950's and 1960's when porn was still illegal in most states.

As the Boomers are now old as dirt, we're seeing their fap material go up in value, as a lot of the "Golden Age" films from the 1970's and 1980's when porn was fully legalized but VHS was still a young format, which meant a lot of titles became rare because a lot of the films that went to VHS went out of print and never made it to DVD or the internet, while some films from the 70's didn't even make it to VHS at all.

Because the early porn industry was so deeply in bed with organized crime, a lot of the smaller and mid-sized production companies from the 70's and 80's went under as a result of the federal crackdowns on the Mob back in the late 80's and 90's, so a lot of titles fell out of print and into legal limbo.

Some of these films were lost completely, such as the infamous movie "Him", a gay porno from the 70's that was a retelling of the story of Jesus (I wish I was making that up). A lot of people thought the movie was just a fake urban legend until some posters and promotional materials were discovered.

I mean, we can joke about the guy being a creepy basement dweller angry at his parents for getting rid of his hoard, but if he's involved in the vintage porn collector scene, he may actually have a case for losing items of real monetary value.

I mean, if it really was just about fap material, he'd probably just use the internet and the article wouldn't have named a ballpark financial value either.

Good men have died trying to recover the 16mm reels of Hitler. The content is unknown and some say the Soviets got them and they're still in Russia somewhere, forgotten in some vault. That might be partially true, it's very likely that the russkies got their hands on them but it is also likely that they didn't hold them for long, it was material that was up for destruction after reviewing it by the higher ups in Moscow. When sent to be destroyed a British spook got his hands on them and the reels might have been going to Switzerland after that, that's what people think and evidence points to it being a possibility, though it has been a closely guarded secret because the KGB would absolutely go anywhere in the world to visit whoever claimed to have them.

$29k is way too little for Hitler's sextapes and he probably just had a massive amount, twelve boxes, of DVD's like some porn hoarder.
