Value of a Cabbage Patch Doll?

I have the red haired green eyed girl with the green signature on her rear. The date is 1978, 1982. There are no clothes or box. She has a very clean soft body. Does it have any value?

If she had her original outfit, box, (NOT REMOVED FROM IT), and certificate, she may fetch $15. Without those items, they are selling (SOLD prices) for less than $10.

It used to be the red haired, green eyed CPK were more valuable than the others, but the recent glut on the market (thank you Marie Kondo) has really brought the values down so much.

Some people still think these dolls are "gold" but sadly it is a very rare sale that is over $25-$50 and most sales are under $20. All doll sales are very slow and Cabbage Patch dolls are so plentiful it would take a major miracle for even 10% of the listed dolls to sell by Christmas.
Presently on eBay alone there are over 27,000 different types Cabbage Patch dolls listed for sale and over 19,000 listed in the 1978-1982 category. There are over 700 redheaded dolls listed for sale and low number of redheads selling over the past several months.

Here is the link for redheads on eBay so you can place a watch on any you wish to track to see if they sell. You will see several listings for very high numbers but if you check you will find these are almost always listed by new inexperienced sellers who are dreaming of riches that will not happen.
Many of this type seller will have 0-20 feedback and just do not understand the market. Still - strange things happen....

Check the sold listings for an exact doll and that may be the current value.

Sadly these dolls were worth more when they first came out! Everyone had to have one! These dolls went up in the $100's the first Christmas and even the next year!Now you would be lucky to get up to $50 for a excellent condition doll.This one not the best condition, Good Luck!

It does not have value. Only the original Xavier Roberts ones that are signed do.

When these dolls first came out every little girl wanted one even mine. They were so hard to find and if you were lucky to get to the store when they first came in the price was way too expensive and I couldn't afford one. I worked in Mexico at the time and down there I was able to get one for my daugher at a fraction of the price they sold in the US. My daughter was 16 when she decided it was time to sell hers off. I do believe she received around $150 for all the things she had. There were 6 dolls, a stroller, car set and a lot of other things she had collected over the years. I know she had a horse that she refused to sell and still has it today.

Today people are selling these for as low as $10 and as high as $50. The resale value is not so good considering the popularity of the dolls when they first came out.
