Value of Cabbage Patch Dolls?

I have these original Cabbage Patch dolls, with their original birth certificates and/or registrations. I'm not sure I understand what everyone is talking about being "signed." All my dolls have the Xavier Roberts signature on their tushies. The preemie even has a CPK diaper on. And the two on the end are twins, also with diapers on underneath. The Koosa is a bit of a rarity I think. And I was ecstatic to have the identification and registration certificates. But then I realized that this cat lost an ear in battle somewhere. :(

But otherwise, these are all in pristine condition (no boxes). These were my dolls as a child and they have been stored in plastic bins all this time.

So my question of course is how much are they worth. And then, where do I sell them to get top dollar?

Thank you in advance for any advice and help!

There are a lot of Cabbage Patch dolls for sale. On eBay selling starts at $10 to $50. You could stage them with great background scenes to make them stand out from all of the others online. Also the set of twin dolls are very unique and should bring in the best price, although boxed and not opened brings in more, it is worth a shot!

There are a lot of the early Cabbage Patch dolls floating around for sale so most are not a rarity.

You will have to research each doll individually and try to find one that has sold as a sold price is the only true current value of any item. Listing/asking prices are just prices that a seller would like to receive for their items.
eBay is the only site that actually has a link to their sold items so you can check to see if any of your dolls have been sold in the last several months and you can also see what people are actually paying for these dolls.

You can check Google also but eBay listings may have one of your dolls and you can place a watch on any item to see if or when it sells.

I did see this listing for twins that I believe may be like yours but if so, it appears your twins are missing their caps, their shoes and pacifier.

This condition would lower their value considerably.
You will need to check each doll to make sure all of their clothing and accessories are with the doll or make sure you list this difference in any listing you post.

ThriftyFun has a posting with a lot of information about these dolls.

I would suggest selling them in your area and not online because right now the online stores such as eBay are flooded with dolls. Normally people are getting around 15-25 dollars each for these dolls. If they were still in the boxes and had all the stuff with them they would sell or could sell for a bit more.

There are garage sale apps that can be added to your phone to help you sell in your area. You can try with FB too and list them there. I would try and avoid eBay because there are so many of them listed there right now.
