June 2014 Auction


01 Mr. Magoo Nodder Rare Gem MB $750
One of the toughest dolls of all, I know of only a handful that exist anywhere. This is only the 3rd one I've been able to get a hold of, needless to say it's a tough one. My blacklight tells me he's had some chips and cracks expertly restored, he looks gem mint with super colors and gloss. Decal is great too. You won't find one nicer looking (that is if you can find one at all). $4500

02 Near Set of 1960-62 Square Base NFL Dolls NrMt+ MB $750
Win this and you'll be very close to completing a high quality set of Square bases. Includes 11 of the 14 franchises in the set, only one's missing are the Browns, Vikes and Giants. All have strong colors and gloss with solid decals. The Packers would grade about ExMt with a hairline crack in rear and some light stains to helmet, other would all grade a strong NrMt or better. You won't be disappointed in this lot.$825

03 Los Angeles Rams 1960 Wood Base Gold Jersey Tough Gem NrMt/Mt MB $300

A very tough doll, this is from the very first run of dolls and featured the old style Gold Rams uniform and enlarged base, subsequent Ram dolls were blue. This one is a beauty, all original and as nice as you will ever see. Like new gem colors and gloss, super logos and horns. No cracks, chips or hairlines. Super!$495
04 LSU Tigers Mascot Scarce Only 3rd One I've Had Gem NrMt/Mt MB $500
This is a rarity. Only the 3rd one I've had in over 13 years in the business. It's also the first all original one that I've seen, the others were restored. Beautiful colors and gloss, super embossed logo. The details and paint are outstanding throughout. No cracks or hairlines, a beautiful rare example.
$1427
05 St. Louis Cardinals Wedge Base Rare Gem MB $750
Wow, what are the odds of getting this one again? I had one in my February auction, before that the only other example I'd ever seen in person was in my auction back in 2004!! Comes with only the base decal (never seen chest or hat decals on a Cards Wedge) which is in great shape. Looks super with bright colors and strong gloss. He's had some cracks and chips professionally restored and looks gem minty on the shelf. It's a rare one.
$1400
06 San Francisco Giants Wedge Base Tough ExMt MB $240
Another very tough baseball doll, only the 5th one I've had over the years. Looks super with bright colors and gloss and solid logos. The only flaws are a hairline crack in rear and a couple of scattered nicks that don't detract at all.

07 Los Angeles Dodgers Wedge Base Ex MB $100
Another example from the tough to find 1970-72 Wedge Base set. This is the Dodgers Bank version. Looks good on display as the flaws are well hidden, a chip out of right side of head rim and a chip to the hat button. Colors have toned a shade or two but look OK, logos are pretty solid.
$100
08 Seattle Supersonics Black Player 1st I've Had Gem MB $300
One of the rarest dolls out there and one of the few dolls that I've never had before. This one is gorgeous with gem colors and gloss. Chest decal is perfect, base decal has a couple of small misses. He's had some chips and cracks professionally restored and looks gem mint. Don't expect another anytime soon.
$484
09 Buffalo Bills 1961 Toes Up NrMt+ MB $240
Solid Bills doll from the first AFL set. Colors, gloss and decals are all strong. The head rim is pretty solid with just a bit of nicking and a few micro hairlines. Strong example that's pretty tough to find.
$264
10 Detroit Lions Type 1 Toes Up Scarce Gem NrMt+ MB $240
A gorgeous doll and very tough to find, only the 5th one I've ever had. This is the neat Type 1 style with the vertical ball, goofy face and small print base decal. He's all original with outstanding colors, gloss and paint. Decals are strong but for a factory miss to the D on base. Only flaw ( a small nick to the interior head rim on the right side) is well hidden and minor.

11 San Francisco 49'ers Kissing Pair Gem MB $240
Lovely pair from the 1962-64 NFL Kissing set. He's had some work done to the rim and looks gem mint with shiny colors and strong decals. She's a beauty too with just some restoration to a few chips around the head rim. Beauties.
12 Minnesota Vikings Type 1 Toes Up Scarce Gem NrMt/Mt MB $240

19 LSU Tigers Toes Up Rare Ex+ MB $180
Before 2008 I had never seen this doll, it's very rare. There was a Tiger mascot made, as well as the 1965 Purple Base and a Real Face example and it's become obvious that not many of this style were made. This one has a bit of overall wear but looks pretty good. Some nicks and a couple of hairlines to the rim and chip to back of base are the main flaws. Decals are OK with just a bit of light wear.

Neat! The Korody Colyer Corp. were big on using bobbing heads as advertising pieces. In addition to the cool KC Piston nodder, they also used various baseball dolls. Awhile back I had a white base example, this is a Green Base. It's an LA Angel doll with the decals removed and the company logos added in.

March All Doll Auction



01 Philadelphia Phillies Wedge Base Rare Gem MB $500

One of the rarer baseball dolls out there, only a handful or so are known to exist. From the tough 1970-72 Wedge Base set, this one is a beauty. Gem colors and gloss and super decals (note the misspelled name on base which is correct on this doll). You can't tell by looking at it but he has had some chips and dings to the head professionally restored. You need a black light to tell and he looks gem mint. $1611

02 St. Louis Cardinals Wedge Base Rare 2nd I've Seen Gem MB $500

Rarer than the Phils doll, only example I've ever seen in person was in my auction back in 2004!! Suffice it to say it's as rare as they come. Comes with only the base decal (never seen chest or hat decals on a Cards Wedge) which is just about perfect. Looks super with bright colors and strong gloss. He's had some cracks and chips professionally restored and looks gem minty on the shelf. Don't hold your breath for another real soon. $1930

03 San Francisco Giants Wedge Base Rare Strong ExMt MB $240

This is a tough doll, only the 4th one I've ever had, first since 2008! Solid colors, gloss and decals. A few hairline cracks to the head and a scrape to the rear head rim are the flaws. What looks in the pictures to be a nick to his hair swirl is actually just a small flaw in the mold. It's more noticeable in the pix because of the way the flash picked it up, not really noticeable in real life. $301

04 Washington Senators 1960 Color Base Rare Gem MB $500

A very tough baseball doll, haven't had one in over a year and only a handful in the last 12 . The old Washington Senators moved to Minnesota and became the Twins after the 1960 season.

Scarce, neat variation with the boys eyes open and the majorette's eyes closed, the opposite of the regular series.

Flaws are a small nick to the head rim and rear base and some touched up scrapes to his jersey (you could probably touch those up nicely if you match the paint better). Box with sticker is solid. $66

38 Miami Dolphins 1968 Gold Base Gem Ex/Mt in Box MB $60

A pretty tough one to find and this Dolphin from the 1968 Gold Base set looks terrific on display. Appealing colors and shine and outstanding decals. Flaws are some chipping to the head rim with a couple of hairlines. Box with no sticker is decent. $60

39 Green Bay Packers 1968 Gold Base Gem NrMt+ in Box MB $90

A beauty from the 1968 Gold Base set (also known as the Merger series). Super dark green colors, strong gloss and great decals. Just a tiny bit of chipping on the left side of the under rim and two micro hairlines that you have to search for. Box with no sticker is OK with writing on either end.  $90

40 Houston Oilers 1968 Gold Base NrMt in Box MB $60

Nice Oilers doll from the 1968 set, pretty under rated as far as I'm concerned. Nice colors and gloss, solid decals. Scattered pinpoints and a few flakes to the rim are the flaws. Oilers box is in OK shape. $73

41 Suzy Smart Red Cross Nurse First One Ever NrMt/Mt MB $240

Wow, one of the few dolls I've never had before, this is as rare as they come. Only one I've ever seen before was in a Tim Hunter All Doll Auction, well over 10 years ago. Part of a set of 6 Suzy Smart Dolls and she's a beauty! Nice colors and gloss, no chips, cracks or hairlines. The humorous decal "Where did you say you want that shot?" is outstanding too. Includes her original Suzy Smart hand tag.  $3844

42 Rocky Taconite Advertising Nodder MB $120

One of the most unique dolls made, this doll advertised the process of converting the metal "taconite" into steel. The doll has an actual taconite finish, you can read all about it on the decal under the doll which is in nice condition. This guy, like almost all Rocky's has had some paint touch ups but you really need a black light to spot them. Tough doll, only the 2nd one I've had in the last 5 years. $176

43 Porky Pig Warner Brothers Nodder Gem NrMt/Mt MB $180

Terrific example from the Looney Tunes set, Porky doesn't come looking much better. All original with super color and gloss, perfect decals and no chips, cracks or hairlines. That about says it all. $218

44 Northwestern Type 4 Toes Up Rare Only 2nd I've Had Gem MB $300

One of the tougher College dolls out there, this is from the neat Big Ten set of dolls that were made in the Type 4 style (Ball horizontal, bullet shaped heads on colored bases). Had my first one back in 2010, this is only the 2nd I've been able to get a hold of. This one looks minty with bright colors and gloss and super decals (just a couple of tiny misses to chest decal). No chips or cracks although my black light did pick up a bit of smoothing to the head rim and a light cleaning. Looks super and very scarce. $363

45 Purdue Type 4 Toes Up NrMt MB $140

Another example from the tough Type 4 (Bullet head, ball horizontal, different colored bases) Big Ten set. Nice colors and gloss with good decals. Only flaws are a micro hairline in rear and some scattered mold and paint flaws including a bit of excess shellac on the helmet. All original with striking blue eyes.$140

Looks minty on the shelf with nice colors, gloss and decals. The flaws are in back and include some hairlines and a touched up ding to the helmet.

47 Vermont Catamounts Toe Up Rare EX MB $180

Vermont is one of the rarer college dolls, these small program eastern schools probably didn't order many and they are very tough to come by. This is only the 3rd one that I've been able to offer for auction. This is the baggy shirt style. Colors and gloss are both OK, decals are good. Scattered pinpoint flakes and some chipping and hairlines to the rim are the flaws.

48 Syracuse Toes Up Ex in Box MB $100

Nice colors and gloss, perfect decals. Flaws are a ding and marks to shoulder area and a couple of light hairlines and wear to the head rim. Box with team stamp is taped but looks OK. $133

51 New York Yankees Oddball Mini NrMt MB $120

This Yankees sad faced mini was a doll that the team ordered in the early 60's along with a more available full sized doll. The mini is a tough one to find. The condition of these is always an issue, they were kind of roughly made and suffer from mold and paint issues. This is in the top range as far as condition, the colors are good and the only material flaw is a micro hairline under the left ear that I needed my reading glasses to spot. Otherwise just mild mold roughness and a paint drip around back. Better than most, by far. $120

52 Chicago White Sox Mini Gem NrMt/Mt MB $140

A nearly perfect little mini. All original with bright white colors with nice shine and super decals. No chips, cracks or hairlines. Not much else to say except lovely. $158

The toughest mini mold variation to find, this is the scarce "Beatles Haircut" version. He's a glossy off white and looks nice, reds and blues are sharp. The chest and hat decals are pretty perfect, base decal shows wear. A small surface chip just above his belt is the flaw. Neat doll. $214

54 Baltimore Orioles White Base NrMt/Mt MB $200

It's been awhile since I've had an all original O's White Base in minty condition. With the large head mold and small neck opening they're usually either chipped up or restored. This one is all original and looks great with nice colors, solid gloss and perfect decals. No cracks or hairlines, a small surface scrape to the rear rim and a pinpoint or two are the only flaws. A tough find in this condition. $314

55 New York Mets Green Base NrMt MB $90

An attractive Mets example from the 1963-66 Green Base set. The swirl style head is minty with no chips or cracks and strong gloss. Body has toned a bit and is a glossy off white. Decals are in nice shape. One tiny dent and craze mark to right shoulder is the only composition flaw. Looks nice.

56 Cincinnati Reds Green Base Ex MB $50

Nice display doll for collectors on a budget. He's a glossy off white throughout with bright red colors. Decals are super. The flaws are well hidden on display and include a few hairlines to the jaw and 2 chips to the rim. $55

57 Chicago Cubs Wedge Base Ex+ MB $100

A tough to find doll from the scarce 1970-72 Wedge Base set, I believe this is only the 5th one I've ever had.. Composition wise the doll is in nice shape with just a couple of faint hairlines and some very light scattered wear. The main flaws are the chest and hat decals which are rough. The base decal is OK. Tough doll. $324

58 Boston Red Sox Wedge Base MB $50

From the tough 1970-72 Wedge Base set. OK colors, chest and hat decals are pretty good, base decal shows a lot of wear. Scattered flakes and a crack to the right side of rim are the flaws. $ 50

59 Houston Astros Oddball Gold Base Ex MB $50

This was one of the dolls that the team ordered specially. Comes on a round gold base with a unique face not seen elsewhere. Fairly difficult doll. Condition is always a problem with this example and toned shellac and a rough base decal are the main problems here. Head is solid with just a few marks. Shooting star and astros patch have darkened a bit.

60 Rittgers Statues Set Of 3 NrMt+ MB $120

Colorful trio of baseball statues marketed by Lafayette L. Rittgers during the 1940s. They're not nodders but fit in great on display. One of the nicest sets I've had, no cracks, crazing or chips, just a few scattered flakes to the gray uniform on the National Leaguer (the dot on his hat is camera glare). All are dated 1941. $120

61 Boston Patriots 1965 AFL Earpad Gem MB $250

Not a very easy doll to find. This one looks super with bright colors and solid gloss. Decals are in good shape with just some very light wear. The helmet stripe is just about perfect which is almost impossible to find on this example. A chip to the rim was professionally restored, looks gem mint. $366

62 Green Bay Packers 1965 Real Face Gem ExMt MB $80

Nice looking display doll from the 1965-68 Realistic Face NFL set. Colors and gloss are very nice, decals and helmet stripe are strong. Flaws ( a few hairline cracks coming up from the rim, side and rear) are well hidden on the shelf. Looks minty.$80

63 Detroit Lions 1965 Real Face Rare Gem NrMt/Mt in Box MB $240

An extremely scarce doll that rarely shows up. In original gem minty condition with out of the box colors and gloss. The chest and arm decals are flawless, the helmet decals are close too. This was one of a collection of dolls that were not given original base decals but instead the team logo was hand painted on the base. I've seen the same style on several dolls from this era and I believe they were done that way at the factory. Gorgeous example. Box with Lions sticker is plain.

64 Detroit Lions 1965 Gold Base NrMt MB $70

A sharp doll from the 1965 Gold Base set. Much tougher than the '68 Lion example. Colors and gloss are strong, decals are too with just a couple of misses to the side helmet decals. A tiny bit of chipping under the rim and two small hairlines in rear are the flaws.$70

69 Pittsburgh Steelers 1961 Square Base NFL Gem ExMt MB $90

One of the tougher dolls in the set, and this has the hard to find NFL embossed base. Solid colors and shine with nice logos. A couple of hidden dings to the head rim are the flaws. Looks very nice. $90

Good looking example. Bright colors and strong gloss, decals are perfect all around. A few light hairlines coming up from the rim are the flaws and are well hidden on display. $88

72 Detroit Lions 1961 Square Base with Scarce NFL Gem NrMt/Mt MB $60

Can't remember the last time I saw a Lions Square Base with the embossed NFL logo, It's harder to find on some teams and the Lions lead that list. It's a beauty too with sharp colors and gloss, strong decals and no cracks or hairlines. $117

I had an original Ranger mini last month (see pic below with the light blue shirt). If you need a Ranger to finish off your set of 6 NHL minis and don't have $2000++ to spend on a real one, here's the next best thing. Many years ago a guy "remade" a collection of Toronto mini dolls into Rangers to help collectors who couldn't find a real Ranger mini.  He included his initials under the base (KDT). These have actually become quite collectible and are still a lot rarer than any of the other minis out there. This one is gorgeous and looks gem mint on the shelf. Two small hairlines in rear are the only flaws. $353

01 Dick Tracy Nodder Rare Gem MB $750

One of the toughest and most popular dolls out there, I run across one every couple of years. This example has nice colors and the gloss is super. The decal is just about perfect.

This one is super with nice original colors and gloss and solid decals (there's a small extra piece of decal in the "upside down V" of the hat decal, just a minor factory flaw).

81 New York Rangers Mini Remake Gem MB $200

If you want to complete your Mini Hockey set this is probably your best shot. As many of you know, the Ranger mini is virtually non-existent (last one sold went for $3500++).

The easiest way to tell is the remake has a decal on the base, the original had a stamped logo. He included his initials under the base (KDT). These have actually become quite collectible and are still a lot rarer than any of the other minis out there. If you need the Ranger, here's your chance without waiting years and spending $1,000's on a real one. This example is gorgeous with super colors and paint, perfect decals and no chips, cracks or hairlines.$575

Don't know what to tell you on this one. Awhile back there were several dolls like this on ebay, including many of the rare non sports dolls. They all went for fairly big bucks..Modeled after the original Japan doll but I can't tell you where or when it was made. It's really heavy and roughly made.

22 Pepe the Movie Advertising Nodder 1st I’ve Had Gem Ex MB $240

"Pepe" was a film released in the US in 1960 featuring a very popular (in Mexico) actor/comedian named Cantinflas. It was nominated for 7 Academy Awards although it wasn't a financial success. Apparently the actor's quirky humor did not relate well in English and he never appeared in a US movie again. This doll was produced to promote the movie and I doubt many were made as it is very rare, it's the first one I've ever had and only the 3rd I've seen.
He looks gem mint with gorgeous original colors and gloss. A chip out of the right side head rim is pretty well hidden on display and the only flaw. Could easily be restored if desired although it looks fine as is.$638

This one is in nice shape with no cracks or hairlines, just some light scattered wear to the paint. He's all original except for a light touch up to his hat brim and to the back of his hair along the head rim which blends in well. Not sure when you'll get another opportunity for this one....$4055.70

One of the neater set of dolls I've offered and something that I've never seen before. It's a set of the original 6 NHL franchises.

There is an engraved copyright on the back of the base which says Alberta 1974, however most of them are under the paint so they are hard to read. That's about all i know about these, other than they are really cool.

They are in great condition, just a couple of small nicks, no cracks or hairlines. All have bright glossy colors with hand painted logos. If you're looking for something different, here it is!$532

January 2012 All Doll Auction Results

01 Washington Senators 1960 Color Base Gem MB $750

One of the toughest dolls of all. This is the only example of the original Washington Senators team that moved to Minnesota and became the Twins in 1961. This doll was quickly removed from production and replaced with the Twins. Not many made it into circulation and this is only the 3rd one I've been able to get a hold of.. He's a beauty. The body is all original with bright colors and the detailed chest decal is in good shape with just a couple of tiny misses. Head looks mint although my black light picked up some professional work to the rim. A minty looking example of one of the scarcest dolls out there. $1431

02 Los Angeles Angels Black Player 3rd One I've Had Gem MB $500

One of the toughest dolls from the always difficult Black Player set. This is only the 3rd one I've had to offer in my 11 years.. He looks great with solid colors and gloss. The hat decal is super, the chest and base decals are pretty good with some minor misses. Can't find any repairs although he has had a professional cleaning. Some light pinpoints in rear with a scratch like hairline are the only flaws. Tough doll that looks good.$1198

03 Houston Astros Gold Base Shooting Star Tough MB $300

What are the odds of having this very difficult to find doll in back to back auctions? The scarcest doll of this set and this example is pretty nice. Nice colors and gloss, the decals are pretty good too with just a few misses. He's had some professional work to the head rim so no cracks or hairlines.$300

04 Denver Bears Wedge Base NrMt MB $300

One of the tougher baseball dolls, the only minor league example from the 1970-72 Wedge Base set and I'm lucky if I come across one every year and a half or so. This is also probably the hardest doll to find in nice condition because the paint, mold and decals usually are very flawed.
This is possibly the nicest example I've had. All original with good colors and gloss. The chest, base and shoulder decals are super, hat decal is spotty. No cracks or hairlines. Only flaws are some crazing to the black paint on the shoes and around back on the base an a factory paint flaw to the right side of his hair.. Otherwise solid.$385

05 Oakland Raiders 1961 AFL Toes Up Gem NrMt/Mt in Box MB $500

The smile on this guys face says it all, he's finally escaped from his original box that he's spent his entire 50+ years in! A spectacular example with like new colors and gloss, sharp decals and no cracks or hairlines. The only flaws, if your picky, are a couple of tiny pinpoints to the collar area and some very faint rubs to the top of his head from the box, extremely minor and hardly noticeable. Box with stamp is a beauty too. Tough doll and they don't come better!$1650

06 Los Angeles Rams Black Toes Up Gem MB $350

Gem minty looking doll from the difficult 1962-64 Black Player Toes Up set. Gem colors and gloss, super decals and helmet horns.

07 Dallas Cowboys 1960 Wood Base Gem NrMt+ MB $280

The very first Cowboy doll made, along with the Gold Uniform Ram the toughest of the set by far. He has super colors and shine and solid embossed logos. All original with no cracks or hairlines and a perfect head rim. Only flaw is some very light surface rubs to the paint on the helmet, mentioned in passing as it is very minor. Don't come much nicer. (Note the front picture makes it look like the head is darker than the body, that's not the case, it's all the same color).$280

08 Detroit Lions 1965 Real Face Rare Tough NrMt MB $240

I had this doll for the first and only time back in August 2010, it's one of the hardest football dolls to find, for some reason they just didn't produce many Lions dolls from that set. This one is solid with nice colors and gloss. The decals and helmet stripe have some issues, as you can see. Otherwise the doll is strong with no cracks or hairlines and just some pinpoint nicks and some light marks to the helmet paint. Hard to tell when this one will show up again. $240

09 Philadelphia Eagles Kissing Pair Gem MB $240

shiny pair from the 1962-64 NFL Kissing Pairs set. Both have had some light restoration done and have bright colors and terrific gloss. She looks gem mint, so does he other than the flaw to the chest decal and some light marks to the helmet wings. Not perfect but very pretty on display.$240

11 Mickey Mantle White Base Gem MB $250

Like most of the "gem mint" Mantles, this one has had some restoration and a cleaning and looks perfect. Embossed NY's are great, signature has a bit of wear. If you need a Mantle, this one's a beauty!$250

The most valuable and popular umpire doll, this was actally a part of the 1961-63 White Base set. He has gem colors and gloss, no cracks or hairlines. My black light picked up some restoration to the head rim but it's impossible to tell. Looks gem mint on the shelf.$440

15 San Diego Gulls 1968 Gold Base Color Variation NrMt+ MB $200

One of the tougher Hockey dolls, this is the much rarer red pants, teal decal variation (the standard Gull has light blue pants and orange trim). I believe this is only the 2nd example I've had. Not only is he rare but the head and body is all original and in super condition. This particular head mold is normally very rough and prone to cracking which is why you find so many restored examples. He's a beauty with bright colors and gloss, strong decals and no cracks or hairlines. Only flaw is some light flakes to the base that have been touched up.$275

17 Chicago Black Hawks Small High Skates NrMt MB $220

This is from the smaller sized (about 5.5") High Skates set, also referred to as the Intermediate High Skates. These were distributed only in Canada and all the US teams look like they were made in much smaller quantities, so this is a fairly difficult one to find. Nice shiny red colors with nearly perfect decals. All original with no cracks or hairlines. The only flaws are some tiny pinpoint flakes to the shoulder topsm hidden ding to the left side of head rim and a slight darkening of the shellac in spots around back, mostly the back of the ears. Looks sharp.$275

18 Detroit Red Wings 1962 Square Base Gem NrMt MB $150

One of the toughest of the Warner Brothers set, I think this is only the 4th Foghorn example I've been able to offer.

Neat doll featuring Subby, the mascot for the Groton Ct. Naval base. He's in great shape with nice coloring and smooth paint. The embossed logo is sharp.
