Finding the Value of Ashton Drake Dolls?

Is there a guide that lists values of Ashton Drake dolls? I have probably 30. There are too many for pics. They are all around 20 years old.

There is no site that I know of that has a list of values or even just a list of dolls. Ashton Drake made 3 to 5,000 dolls of each model (even more of some models) and these were sold world wide but mostly in the US. Some were nice dolls but they are so plentiful that value is very low - usually less than $25 but more in the range of $10 -$15.
Each doll has to be researched separately as some may be worth a little more. You can check out the listings on eBay to see if any of your dolls are listed but asking prices have no relation to 'current value' as only a sold item can tell you what someone was willing to pay for an item and it really needs to be an exact copy of what you are trying to sell.

There are almost 12,000 Ashton Drake dolls presently listed on eBay but you can narrow the search by checking off the details (size, etc) shown on the left side of the eBay screen. You may have to do this with each doll. Also, doll names can help but not everyone lists dolls by name so that does not always work out.
If you find a doll like one you have, you can place a watch on the listing to see if it sells.

Here is a link to sold dolls on eBay so you can do the same research to see if a doll like yours has sold in the last few months. If one has sold then you say that would be the current value. Of course that does not always hold true but it's the best you can do.

Dolls are very slow sellers and some sellers keep dolls listed for months or even years and some never sell - even at low prices.

Shipping is always a hassle as these dolls are fragile and break easily.
Appraisers use eBay sold listings when they are looking for current value.

If you decide to sell your dolls you may want to list them on sites other than eBay as eBay is not easy to use unless you are an experienced seller.

The only way I know of you to find the value of your dolls is to do online searches for each doll and see how much it was sold for. You can normally find the items sold on eBay or even Esty. I can tell you now that most of these dolls value has dropped so badly and people are lucky to get around $5 to $15 for each one of them. You should actually try selling them locally in a yard sale or even a second hand store You may do better than trying to sell them online.

This company mass produced dolls and they make several thousand dolls a year. Online there is actually no guide at all to tell you the true value of any of these dolls.

You can only determine the value of the dolls by the ones that have been sold in the past few months. Lately people are lucky to sell these dolls for $5 to $15 each. That is actually the value of the dolls you own right now.

The best you can do if you are trying to get rid of this is to sell them in bulk to get $1 or $2 each, so that at least then you could get $300 or more for minimal effort. I would ask $500 for the lot. The person who will buy will then try to sell them for $5 or $8 each, or add them to his shop somewhere.
