These dolls were very collectible. I would be looking on eBay every day for a few weeks. See what the doll sells for, not the asking price.

Interesting this one is one of the few that has held the value. People are asking big bucks for similar ones on eBay, so if you watch those it will give you today's current market value of.

In the eBay search type bear overall cabbage patch to see what is listed. Remember, this is asking price. Watch for selling price because you can't put a value on something until someone pays for it.

The overall alone sells in the high teen range:

Sometimes boxes and certificates sell so if you can't get a good amount as is, you may be able to sell off the clothes, box, certificate and doll separately and make more money than the whole. Study the market to decide the best way to make the most of the sale!

Post back if you decide to sell and how much he fetches!

Edit:. If it sells that is how you get the current value.

Never use asking price to set values. Sold have green prices under the sold tab.

Can't wait to hear how your sale goes!!

You are correct about red haired dolls usually fetching a little more. That is usually true.

The only flaw evident in my zoom is the box has some wear. That will detract a bit from the value. Be sure to include the certificate if you have it and any other paperwork it came with. Make sure everything is clean also. If you aren't washing the clothing, be sure to point out any flaws up front. Yes, it may drop the price a tad, but it will save you from getting negative feedback.

A doll like yours recently sold on eBay but they accepted a "buy it now" price so we do not know what they actually sold it for. The asking price was $29.99 plus $9.85 shipping.

Your doll has the light colored overalls and this the rarest one so I think you could ask $50 or more but you may not get a quick sale.

This doll had a lot of issues where your doll still looks to be in excellent condition. I do not know about elastic or if the clothing has any issues but the condition of the box may turn someone off.

Here is a link to the sold doll. Read the description as it has a lot of information about the doll.

If you decide to sell, I would recommend removing him from the box and just say you have the box but it is not in good condition.

There are some styles that seem to sell better than others but it does not always hold true.

Red hair is usually more rare and will many times be worth more money but this requires research for that particular doll and cannot usually be verified on short notice.

Boy dolls will many times be more valuable as they do not usually make as many boy dolls as girl dolls (same with redheads).

Different color outfits can be more valuable (such as your doll's light colored overall's) usually because it is not a favorite "in style" color when dolls are produced.

Different sizes will sometimes make a doll more valuable (many times the large/24" and above) but they also cost more in the beginning and they are very difficult to ship.

You have several things going for your doll but I'm not sure it will make it go over the $50-$75 mark. Dolls of all kinds are usually very slow sellers but November and first week of December are traditionally the best selling times for dolls even-though dolls are not on very many little girl's wanted lists anymore - mothers/grandmothers/aunts still buy them hoping it will spark an interest.

You will find out a lot more if you post your question on the doll forum site (but you will need a better picture and a better description - color hair/size for sure.
