One of a set of 7 AFL dolls with numbers (Patriots, Chiefs, Dolphins, Oilers, Broncos, and Raiders are the others) and all are super tough to find. This one's gorgeous with shiny colors and gloss.

A very scarce doll that rarely shows up for sale, I've only had about a half a dozen of these over the years. All of the dolls in this set are tough and the Colts especially. This one displays nicely with pretty blue colors and nice gloss. Decals are strong with just some flaking to the helmet stripe. Flaws include a paint scrape to top of shoulder and scattered surface hairlines and craze lines and wear to the side and rear of helmet. Face is perfect and the flaws are well disguised on the shelf.$330

06 Dick Tracy Character Nodder Tough Gem MB $500

The Dick Tracy doll is very rare and sought after, they just don't come around often. This is a great looking example with beautiful coloring and gloss and a solid decal.

Body is all original and beautiful, head has had a few small nicks to the head rim professionally restored and looks awesome. As nice looking as they come and a tough one. $400

14 Detroit Lions Kissing Pair Tough Gem MB $350

I'm extremely lucky to have the Lions example in two straight auctions, it might be the toughest of the set and I usually go years without seeing one. These are all original with strong colors and gloss. The Lions boy has a very faint hairline to face and a couple to rear head that are hard to find, looks super on display. I originally thought the majorette was a replacement doll (ie a Green Base "Kiss Me" doll that was repainted gold), however after examining it with a black light I discovered it was actually all original, including the gold paint on the base. I'm inclined to think this is the way it originally came as they probably ran out of the standard majorettes and included this instead. She's in nice shape with just some light craze marks under the lips that you have to look for. Nice pair that is tough to come by. $350

15 Dallas Cowboys Kissing Pair Gem MB $180

A bright and colorful pair from the 1962-64 Kissing set. She has a touched up chip to the hat brim, otherwise all original and in nice shape. One light hairline to chin is hard to spot.

He's had some restoration to the head rim and looks like a super gem mint doll.$535

17 Washington Redskins Type 2 Toes Up Gem MB $140

A tough Type 2 Toes Up (ball vertical, Gold Base with large print decal). This one is solid with nice colors, gloss and decals. He has some touched up hairline cracks in rear, looks mint on the shelf. $154

18 Detroit Lions Type 3 Toes Up Rare Gem NrMt+ MB $240
Here's a great looking, hard to find Lions Type 3 Toes Up (ball horizontal, bullet shaped head, gold base). This is a rare one, I believe it's only the 4rd one that I've ever had. He's all original with super colors and gloss. Decals are pretty good with some light wear to the base and left helmet decals. Flaws are a couple of hidden nicks to the head rim and two micro hairlines. Looks super and a very tough doll.$240

19 Hall Of Fame Souvenir Nodder Rare Only 2 Known Gem MB $200
An extremely rare doll that never shows up, I had this once back in 2007, haven't seen one before or since. This was sold as a souvenir at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, neat mold and the Hall of Fame decal on chest is super. Colors and gloss are fabulous. Some restoration has been done to rim and helmet, body is original and he looks gem mint. Great find.

23 Washington Senators White Base NrMt MB $100

This is the neat Senators example from the 1961-63 White Base set that for some reason came with a unique face different then the standard White Base head. Head is solid with just one well hidden micro hairline in back. Body has had a cleaning and looks pretty good. $130

24 St. Louis Cardinals White Base Gem MB $200
An absolutely gorgeous Cardinal mascot from the 1961-63 White Base set. Gem colors and gloss throughout. Decals are super all around. He's had some chips and cracks professionally restored and looks gem mint on display (any white spots you see are from camera glare). A beauty.$352

A small nick to the rim and a couple of hairlines to the rear are pretty well hidden. He has a slight mold flaw under his right eye that I took a closeup of, you really don't notice it on display and with these great colors and gloss it doesn't really detract. $100

Next is a very interesting Little Leaguer that was repainted orange. I guarantee you won't have anything like that one. Has some touch ups to the rim but no cracks or chips.$60

42 New York Jets Nodder Bank MB $80
A pretty difficult doll and one of only a few Jets examples that they made. It's a team ordered doll, I previously thought this was issued after the Jets SB III win in 1969, but I saw one advertised in a 1967 Jets Yearbook so it was obviously issued prior to 1967. A great looking example with gem colors and gloss and nice logos. A couple of chips and dings were expertly restored and he looks gem mint on the shelf.

46 New York Yankees Mini Team Issue NrMt MB $100

One of the more unique and unusual looking dolls of the period, this is the team ordered mini (they also produced a similar regular size doll) and it's pretty tough to come by. It features pin stripes and pad print logos and was generally poorly made with many mold and paint issues. This one is actually one of the nicer ones I've seen, it has some mostly hidden paint chipping to the head rim but otherwise is solid with nice paint, colors and gloss. Stamped decals are a bit flawed but look OK. A little rough but better than most I've seen.

Now here's a doll that doesn't come around often! This was made to promote the hit movie back in 1962 and it's only the 3rd one I've ever offered, last one was in 2008.. It's in nice condition overall  with just some scattered minor wear and some paint touch ups. Embossed logo is nice, fur around the collar shows a bit of wear but not bad.  Rare example that probably won't show up again anytime soon.

75 Universal Phantom of The Opera with Correct Decal Tough NrMt+ MB $200
A pretty rare doll, doesn't show up often, I've only had a handful over the years. This was issued to promote Universal Studios remake of the classic movie which was released in the summer of 1962. A solid example with shiny coloring and paint and a solid stamped decal. I believe every other Phantom that I've seen had the N in Universal backwards and the U left out of studios, I guess they did eventually correct it, first correct one I've seen. All original but for two tiny paint touch ups to the hat that you need a black light to spot. Looks super..
$275

This is a tough doll to find, haven't had one in 6 years. As you may know, when the Seattle Pilots moved to Milwaukee after one season Pilot dolls were "transformed" into Brewers by removing the decals and replacing them with paper or cloth labels.

June 2018 Auction Final Results

01 Robin Nodder Rare First One I've Had Gem MB $1000

Now this is a really rare one! One of the few dolls around that I've never had before, the Batman doll is rare, his sidekick Robin is even tougher. One of the nicest that you'll ever see (that is if you ever see one, lol) with super gem colors and gloss and a perfect colorful paint job. The neat embossed logo and eye mask are terrific. Body and most of the head and face are all original, the head rim has had a few little nicks and hairlines restored but you'd need a black light to tell. As rare and as nice as they come. $2750

02 Popeye The Sailor Nodder Rare Gem NrMt/Mt MB $1000

An absolutely gorgeous Popeye doll, one of the toughest dolls around, only the 5th one I've had to offer over the last 16 years. This one is a beauty with gem colors and gloss and perfect decals. He's 98% original, just some light smoothing of the head rim that I almost missed with my black light, it's very minor. The rest is all original and gem minty. Great doll. $1996

03 Roberto Clemente White Base Gem MB $750

Here's a beautiful example of one of the most popular dolls of all, the tough Roberto Clemente White Base. Super colors and gloss, no cracks or hairlines. Decals are strong which is often not the case with a Clemente. If you have a black light you can see that he's had some chips and cracks professionally repaired but it's impossible to tell by looking at him with the naked eye, he looks mint. Lovely doll.$1127

04 Mickey Mantle Round Base Original Gem NrMt/Mt MB $300

Here's a gorgeous Mantle "Muscles" version. Quite rare in this condition, unlike most Mantles that look this good this one is all original with no chips, cracks, hairlines, touch ups or repairs. Beautiful gem colors and gloss, decals are super with just a small factory mold bump to the Y on the signature. Note that there is a small factory mold flaw under the right side of the head rim, it's not a crack and doesn't detract from the beauty of the doll at all. Lovely example. $600

05 Kansas City Athletics Gold Base Gem NrMt/Mt MB $300

There's no prettier doll than a gem minty KC A's Gold Base with the green and gold uniform. This was a short lived doll as the A's moved to Oakland soon after production started so not many of these were made. This example is gorgeous, all original with gem colors and gloss and no chips, cracks or hairlines. Because of the pinstripes the chest logo is often flawed on this doll but this one is strong with just a couple of tiny misses, other decals are great. All original and gem minty. $363

06 Detroit Tigers Black Player NrMt MB $500

Here's a nice Tiger Happy Face example from the tough 1963-66 Black Player set. Colors, gloss and decals are all in nice condition. All original with the only flaw being a small, well hidden chip under the head rim in back. A pretty tough one to find. $550

07 Minneapolis Twins Mini Tough Gem MB $350

A very tough to find doll from the mini set, this is the "Minneapolis" Twins version that was briefly produced before they realized that the Twins franchise was to be called Minnesota rather than Minneapolis and changed the decal. I've had a couple recently but that's a fluke, they rarely show up. This mold version is particularly scarce as the vast majority of Twins minis are of the Moon Face variety, this is the standard face style. He's had some cracks and chips professionally restored and looks minty on the shelf with shiny colors and super decals. $350

08 Detroit Lions Black Toes Up Rare Gem MB $500

09 Neat Baltimore Colts Beer Advertising Lamp Rare MB $200

What a neat piece this is, I hate to have to part with it.. This is a vintage 1960 advertising bobbing head desk lamp featuring a National Bohemian Light Beer bottle named "The Colt" and a Colts nodder. The shade has a Colts emblem that illuminates when the light is turned on. All original except for the stitching around the lamp shade that had to be replaced and someone at some point put an oriole sticker on the base of the lamp. It still works and is in very strong condition.The Colts nodder is in great shape. What a great addition, looks great on your shelf or on your desk. Here's some info about the Colts and National Bohemian that I found very interesting:
National Bohemian and the Baltimore Colts (from rustycans.com)

National Brewing, like breweries all across the US, sponsored local sports teams as a form of advertising. Washington DC rival Christian Heurich sponsored the Senators through 1955. They closed in early 1956. Local rivals Gunther sponsored the Orioles until they were bought out by Hamms in 1960. But National was not shut out, they advertised with the Colts, the local football franchise, and the Bullets, then Baltimore’s basketball team. They began their relationship with the Colts in 1953, selling tickets to games via the radio and TV shows the brewery sponsored. In 1955 they signed a five-year deal as the team’s sponsor on radio and TV. They also produced a team film to promote the Colts in 1956, “Corralin’ the Colts.”

In 1959 they signed another five year deal to sponsor the Colts on TV and radio and in September of that year they introduced “the Colt”, a 7 oz bottle of their beer. In 1960 they introduced the 7 oz flat top aluminum can. Coors had developed the 7 oz aluminum can and Gunther used one as well.$220
10 Green Bay Packers Type 1 Toes Up Tough Gem NrMt MB $300
This is a very tough doll, it's only the 6th one I've had in over 16 years running these auctions. This is from the Type 1 series which featured the goofy face, small print decal with the ball held vertically. He has lovely colors and gloss throughout. Decals and helmet stripes are in nice shape (the right side helmet decal was applied upside down). I can't really use the black light on this one because the gold metallic flake paint always glows but it certainly appears to be all original through out. Some light scrapes and faint hairlines under the rim are the flaws and they are hidden on display. A great looking, tough to find doll.
$605
11 Philadelphia Eagles Type 1 Toes Up Gem MB $300
Another tough to find Type 1 example, for some reason they used a different head mold for the Eagle doll. Colors and gloss are very nice, decals and embossed wings are sharp too. A couple chips and nicks to the head rim have been professionally restored and looks great. A couple of marks to the paint, otherwise mint looking.
$439
12 Detroit Lions Type 1 Toes Up Tough Gem ExMt MB $240
Another very difficult Type 1 (ball vertical, goofy face, small print decal on base) that I haven't had in 3 years. This one is all original with gorgeous gem colors and gloss.

This one is all original and In super condition with gem colors and gloss and a perfect Braves chest decal.

If you have a black light you can spot some professional restoration but I couldn't see it with the naked eye.
$290

18 Cleveland Crusaders Blue Base Gem NrMt+ MB $100
Here's another doll from the 4 team Blue Base set. A bit more available than the others in the set but certainly not an easy one. This one has sharp colors and gloss with a super Crusaders decal. A couple very minor nicks to the mold is about the only thing worth mentioning, it's a nice doll.
$100

19 Lot of 2 Hockey Minis Wings and Canadiens NrMt MB $70

A couple of faint hairlines, stray nicks a touch up under the hat brim are the minor flaws (note the shellac drip to lower face looks dark in the pictures because of the flash, in real light it is barely noticeable). Nice looking doll that is pretty tough to find. $132

22 Minnesota Twins White Base Ex+ MB $120

The Twins example is one of the tougher White Bases to find, I haven't had one in 3 and 1/2 years! This one looks nice on the shelf with solid colors and gloss.

Boy, this doll has really dried up recently. Haven't had one in 3 years, they're pretty tough to find. No cracks or hairlines, solid decals. Body is a solid off white, head shellac has toned a bit which is typical on these ball heads but looks pretty good. Nice example.
$299

24 Baltimore Orioles White Base Gem MB $150

Nice O's mascot from the 1961-63 White Base set. Solid colors and gloss with pretty good decals (embossed chest logo is a bit spotty). He’s had a cleaning and has had some nick and chips professionally fixed up and looks minty.$150

25 Los Angeles Dodgers White Base Double Variation Gem NrMt+ MB $120
This is a unique "double variation" that I've never seen before. First off, just about every White Base Dodger that I've ever seen comes with the ball (a tribute to the great pitching staff of the early 60's), this is the super scarce bat variation. Also, the Dodgers White Base example normally comes with an embossed chest logo, for an unknown reason they also made some Dodgers (and Giants) dolls with a chest decal instead. They're pretty hard to come by and it's a nice variation to collect. He's a lovely example, beautiful white coloring and nice gloss with pretty solid decals. No cracks or hairlines, just a few well disguised pin point touch ups to the hat, otherwise mint and all original.
$266

28 Pittsburgh Steelers 1965 Gold Base Gem NrMt/Mt MB $150
Another gorgeous, all original example from the nice 1965-67 Gold Base set. Super gem colors and gloss throughout, very tough to find the neat apron style shoulder pads looking this good. No chips, cracks or hairlines. The decals and helmet stripe are in nice shape with some scattered misses (as often was the case with this doll, the factory decal they used reads "Sieleers" but it blends in well). Super looking doll.

32 Atlanta Falcons 1965 Gold Base Gem NrMt/Mt MB $70
The Falcons came on the scene in 1966 and most of the Falcons (and Saints) dolls were not as solidly well made as the earlier runs of dolls in the 1965-67 Gold Base set. Most that I've had were either dinged up or restored, pretty tough to find a gem minty original example. This one certainly qualifies with outstanding colors and gloss and no chips, cracks or hairlines. Decals and helmet stripe are strong too. Lovely doll and a bit tough in this condition.

33 Indianapolis 500 Standing Driver Gem MB $200

42 Detroit Tigers Mini Large Print Decal NrMt+ MB $180
At some point during the Mini Set production run they introduced these large print decals which look pretty neat if you ask me. Probably a short term thing because you rarely see them and they are quite hard to find. I believe this is the first Tiger I've seen with that decal and he's in great shape. All original with solid paint and decals (just some very light misses to the base decal). I had to search to find the only flaw, an almost invisible micro surface hairline to the chin. Otherwise mint. $

22 New York Rangers Mini Remake Gem MB $200

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 (note that the real Rangers Mini has a light blue shirt and a stenciled logo on the base, not a decal like this remake has)..

32 Boston Patriots 1968 Gold Base Tough Gem NrMt+ in Box MB $120

April 2018 Auction Final Results


01 Mickey Mantle Round Base Variation Rare MB $750

Wow, this is a rare doll! First one I've had and I only know of one other out there. As you probably know, the standard Mantle doll was made on a Square White Base. There was also a 2nd Mantle doll produced on a round White Base with the wide shoulders, known as the Muscles version. Here is a standard Mantle on a round base, a true rarity that probably was a one day production run and then stopped. Beside being ultra rare it's also in great shape with solid colors and gloss, strong logos and just one little nick to the left side of head rim (that's a minor mold bump on his chin, not a crack). All original except for some hidden touching up of the hat. If you like rarities, this one is for you. $1980

This one is sharp with bright colors and solid gloss throughout. The decals are strong with just a slight cut to the upper right hand corner of the Anaheim logo. The only flaws are some light wear and a couple of micro hairlines under the head rim. Looks super and it's a rare one! $550

March 2018 Auction Final Results


01 Willie Mays Gold Base Tough Gem NrMt/Mt in Box MB $500
Here's a very tough baseball doll, I'm in my 16th year of running these auctions and I've only been able to get a hold of 8 of these over the years. I'd have to say this is probably the nicest one I've had or seen. He's all original with strong colors and gloss throughout and no chips, cracks or hairlines. The head rim is so perfect and smooth I checked 3 times with my black light because I I thought for sure it must have been restored but it's all original. The decals here are solid with just a couple of small misses and that's hard to find on these Mays Gold bases. The Mays stamped box is in fairly rough shape but is rare also. One of the nicest you'll see. $880

Some minor chipping to the head rim and an incidental pin point or two are the flaws. $77

02 St. Louis Cardinals Wedge Base Rare NrMt+ MB $500
Another rarity from the 1970-72 Wedge Base set, only the 5th one I've ever had. 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.

06 Willie Mays White Base NrMt MB $250

Nice looking, all original dark face Mays example from the 1961-63 White Base set. Solid colors and gloss, decals are good for a Mays example as they can often be quite spotty. Only flaws are some very light scattered surface marks and a few very hard to spot micro hairlines to the rim.$643

11 Anaheim Angels Mini Beatles Style Rare 2nd I've Seen NrMt/Mt MB $500
Wow, this is a rare doll! Call it a 'double variation", it has the rare Anaheim paper label which is tough to find as well as the very hard to find "Beatles Haircut" head mold. This is a rare combo that I've only seen once before, that one went for well over $1000 and it wasn't nearly as nice as this one. This example is all original and minty. Smooth and glossy off white coloring with strong decals and paper label (the LA hat decal is partially blacked out which was the norm for the Anaheim dolls). No chips, cracks or hairlines, a very nice example of an extremely tough doll.
$985

A very tough to find doll from the mini set, this is the "Minneapolis" Twins version that was briefly produced before they realized the mistake and changed the decal to read Minnesota.

All original with lovely colors and gloss and very nice decals. No chips, cracks or hairlines, as nice as they come. $732

13 Green Square Base Umpire Gem MB $300

The most valuable and popular umpire doll, this was actually a part of the 1961-63 White Base set but is great also as a stand alone doll. He has gem colors and gloss, no cracks or hairlines.

I'm not sure there is a prettier doll in the hobby then the KC A's Gold Base with the green and gold uniform. This was a short lived doll as the A's moved to Oakland soon after production started so not many of these were made. This example is gorgeous, all original with gem colors and gloss and no chips, cracks or hairlines. Because of the pinstripes the chest logo is often flawed on this doll but here it's just about perfect, base decal is strong too. Hat decal has some flaws but otherwise the doll is gem mint. $399

The doll has strong colors and gloss with solid decals and looks super on display. Left side of head rim has some light material loss with a few corresponding surface hairlines but it's not visible unless you tilt him up. Light crazing to shoulder pad (the flash accentuates it, actually hard to see) and 2 tiny nicks to side and rear of are the only other minor flaws. Box is in nice shape with writing on the side. "Colored" stamp was applied unevenly but is partly readable.$881

A very tough doll, only the 4th one I've ever had. A very small percentage of Giant (and Dodger) white base dolls were issued a decal rather than the standard embossed chest logo and they are tough to find.

This is one of the nicer I've seen with strong colors, gloss and logos. All original with no cracks or hairlines, only minor flaws are some scattered pin point sized nicks that don't amount to much. A very solid doll that's pretty scarce. $508

65 San Diego Padres Gold Base Gem NrMt MB $70

One of the nicer Padres that I've seen, this is a very condition sensitive doll and it's hard to find them in top shape. Solid colors and gloss throughout. Decals are super other than the typical seam splits to hat and chest decals. A couple of flakes and pin point sized nicks are it as far as flaws. Nice example.$70
66 Chicago White Sox Gold Base With Green Mold NrMt MB $60

January 2018 Auction Final Results


01 The Wolf Man Nodder Rare Gem MB $1000
An extremely rare doll, only the 3rd one that I've ever had, last one was almost 10 years ago. Part of a 3 doll Monster set that also included Frankenstein and The Phantom of the Opera. This one looks super with gem colors and gloss and a very solid decal. My black light picked up some perfectly done paint touch ups scattered about, can't tell with the naked eye. Rest is original and minty with no chips, cracks or hairlines. Super example. $3221

02 New York Yankees Green Base Muscles Version Never Seen Before Wow MB $500

Wow, just when I begin to think that I've seen them all... This is a never before seen (by me or any other long time hobbyists that I've spoken to) New York Yankee round Green Base "muscles" version. As many of you know, the original Mickey Mantle 1961-63 White Base doll proved so popular that they produced a 2nd doll around 1966. This Mantle was issued on a round white base and featured wide shoulders and big arms and is often referred to as the Muscles version. Apparently a small number of this mold were produced as Green Base Yankees, at least one anyway..

This example is very nice, body is all original with nice coloring and gloss, decals are in good shape. Only flaws are a small scrape to belt buckle and some flakes to base. Head has had a smoothing of the head rim, no other flaws and looks mint. If you want a doll that possibly no one else has, here's your opportunity.$1485
03 Philadelphia Phillies Black Player NrMt+ MB $500
A nice looking, all original, "Happy Face" version from the 1963-66 Black Player set. The coloring and logos are solid, no chips, cracks or hairlines. A tough doll that shows up once a year if you're lucky. $732

05 Cleveland Indians 1960 Color Base Tough NrMt MB $300
This is a very scarce doll that I've only had about half a dozen times over the years. It's the first Indians doll made and is the toughest doll (along with the Cardinals) to find in the original 1960-62 Color Base set. The colors, paint, gloss and decals are all solid. All original except for a couple of tiny spot touch ups to the base. Only flaw is a short surface hairlines to side of jaw that is well hidden. Looks great and a very tough doll!$647
06 Washington Redskins 1960's Kail Ash Tray Rare MB $500
This neat Redskins "Kail" ash tray is one of the hardest to find in the NFL series of the 60's. I've only seen a couple of Redskins ever and those I saw went for really big bucks. It features the 5 inch standing lineman perched on an ash tray in the shape of an old time stadium. The lineman, which is held on the base with a cork, is in nice shape with just some paint flakes to the rear of figure and some very minor crazing to the rear of base which is under the gloss and doesn't effect things. The stadium ash tray has a few tiny paint nicks but looks good. Washington Redskins decal is in nice shape. Nice piece and very tough to find. $660
07 Washington Redskins 1965 Real Face Tough Gem MB $500

This is only the 3rd example of this doll that I've ever had, last one was 4 years ago. The Sandies earlier were a legendary Texas program that won 4 State Titles.

59 Los Angeles Angels Round White Base NrMt MB $100

Neat Angels round white base, part of a 4 doll set that also includes the Dodgers, Cubs, and Umpire. This one is tough to find, I haven't had one in 5 years. Colors and paint are nice, decal has lightened a shade or two but looks fine with minor misses. As was the case back in the early 60's with many Angels dolls, the LA decal on the hat was blacked out at the factory when they thought that the Angels were moving. A small hidden chip to the inner head rim and a few scattered pin point misses in the rear are the flaws.

The Phils doll has been roughly repaired but looks OK on the shelf if you don't look too close.



October 2017 Results



01 New York Rangers Mini Rare Gem MB $750

A real rare one, while the rest of the NHL minis were found in large quantities in 1990, this Ranger mini remains one of the most elusive dolls of all. He's a beauty with gem colors and gloss and super decals. Note that he has a stenciled base decal , not a fake decal like the remake has. He has had some hairline cracks to front of base and foot professionally restored but you would need to use a black light to spot it. Looks gem mint on the shelf ( the white spots you see on hair are from camera glare). Scarce and a real beauty. $3361

02 Dick Tracy Character Nodder Rare Gem MB $750
The Dick Tracy doll is very rare and sought after, they just don't come around often. This is a great looking example with beautiful coloring and gloss and solid decals.

05 St. Louis Cardinals Kissing Pair Tough Gem MB $240

06 San Diego Chargers 1961 AFL Toes Up Gem MB $240

A nice looking example from the tough 1961-63 AFL set. Gem colors and gloss throughout. They must have run out of Chargers decals at some point during the production run as this is at least the 4th Charger doll that I have seen with stamped logos rather than decals. He's had some professional restoration but you would need a black light to spot it, looks gem mint.$264

07 Los Angeles Dodgers Black Player Gem NrMt/Mt in Box MB $400

From the same collection as the Dodger I had last month and they don't come much better than this realistic face from the Black Player set.

The box without a stamp has a bit of wear but is OK. $726

08 "Atlanta" Braves Black Player Scarce Ex+ MB $300
This is a uniques and scarce doll. When the Milwaukee Braves moved to Atlanta in 1966 leftover Braves dolls had their Milwaukee logos blacked out to sell at the stadium in Atlanta. Tough to find, have not seen one in quite some time. This one looks pretty good on the shelf with a nice Braves decal. Body is a glossy off white, head has nice colors and gloss.

09 Cleveland Indians 1960 Color Base ExMt MB $300

This is a very rare doll that usually only shows up somewhere every 5 years or so, I've only had 4 or 5 over the years. It's the first Indians doll made and is the toughest doll (along with the Cardinals) to find in the original 1960-62 Color Base set. White coloring has toned a shade but looks good with just minor surface wear to the shoulder tops. Embossed logo and orange colors are strong. All original except for a small touched up ding to corner of base. Flaws are a faint hairline in rear and a minor circular craze mark on top of his head. Tough doll!$441

14 Pepe the Movie Advertising Nodder 2nd I’ve Had Gem Ex+ MB $280

"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 only the second one I've had (first was in October 2012) and only the 4th one I've ever seen. This example has beautiful colors and gloss with a nice decal. Flaws are some light hairline cracks coming up from the rim and a couple of small nicks. They are well hidden on display so he looks good. A rare one! $484

The Reds mini is a pretty tough one to find and this one is an all original beauty. Solid colors throughout with strong gloss and super decals.

Interesting little White Sox mini. The Chisox mini is tough to begin with and this is the moonface version which you rarely see on a White Sox doll. Hat and base decals are great, the chest decal was put on inside out and upside down. He looks mint on the shelf with the only flaw being a hairline crack to the front of the neck (rear of neck is fine) and some pin point flecks to rear head, all of which is well hidden.

23 Washington Huskies Baggy Shirt Toes Up Gem MB $140

01 San Francisco 49'ers Promo Rare Gem NrMt/Mt MB $2500

Wow, what a scarce doll and this is as nice as they come! As you all know, these Promos are super rare, even with all my contacts I only get hold of about one per year. The owner of this doll contacted me about consigning after briefly putting it on Ebay and getting flooded with offers. He had no idea what he had and decided to pull it off and after doing some research he contacted me. I'm glad he did because it's a beauty.
He's in all original condition with super gem colors and gloss and lovely paint throughout. Decals and stripes are very strong. There are no chips, cracks or hairlines anywhere which is almost impossible on these jumbos. The "flaws" are 3 pin point sized flecks to the paint but let me tell you that is really being picky.

07 Kansas City Athletics Gold Base Gem NrMt+

Sharp looking doll from the 1967-72 Gold Base set, this is the first run Gold Base with the nice green base mold.

The only flaw is a small touched up nick to the hat brim, otherwise all original and minty. $350

08 Seattle Pilots Gold Base Gem MB $240

16 Anaheim Angels White Base Ex MB $90
The Angels were scheduled to move to Anaheim in the early 60's and although the move didn't happen for many years some LA decals were papered over with a paper Anaheim sticker. Pretty tough to find. This one has bright coloring and the Paper sticker is in good shape. Chest decal is OK with some light misses, the LA hat decal was normally painted over, this one was partially done.

Only material flaw is a tiny nick or two under the head rim which is hidden and very minor. In the early 1970's the original owner added painted on #19's representing star player Jean Ratelle. I guess technically that's a flaw but I think it's kind of neat and it looks great $120

Another great example from the original 1962 Square Base set. Colors and gloss are strong and the decals are too. No cracks or hairlines.

The coloring and gloss are very nice and the decals are too, including the neat State of Texas helmet logos. A slight indent to the mold near the AS on base is the only flaw there. Doll is all original and in nice shape with just a ding to the rim (fortified with adhesive so it's solid) and a few fine hairlines.$605
06 Green Base Umpire Tough Gem NrMt/Mt MB $300
The most valuable and popular umpire doll, the scowling ump with the face mask and whisk broom. Although he comes on a square green base this was actually made as part of the 1961-63 White Base set. You can display on it's own or it fits in with both the White and Green Base sets.
A pretty tough doll to find and this one is super. He has shiny gem colors and gloss and smooth paint throughout. No chips, cracks or hairlines, just a few scattered pin points mentioned only in passing. All original and minty.$538
07 Houston Colt 45's White Base with Blue Uniform Gem MB $350
The very first run of Colt 45 White Base dolls were made with their all blue uniforms which they wore only on Sundays, later issues of this doll were the traditional white so these are pretty tough to find and highly sought after. Nice shiny colors and gloss, 3 decals are perfect, missing his hat decal. He's had some chips and cracks professionally restored and has had a cleaning, looks minty.
08 Willie Mays Correct Signature Nodder Very Rare Gem ExMt MB $350
A very rare doll and one of the few dolls left that I've never been able to offer before. A very small number of Mays White Bases were given a decal with the correct Mays signature, rather than the "Wiely Msys" looking autograph on his regular dolls (see pix for comparison). This one looks super with beautiful coloring and gloss. Decals are solid and the signature is perfect. A couple of well hidden chips to sides of head rim are the flaws. A very tough doll that looks gem mint on the shelf. $1464

11 Tom Pouce Advertising Nodder Rare Only 3rd One I've Had NrMt MB $350
A very rare advertising doll, only the 3rd example that I have been able to offer, last one was 5 years ago. A Tompouce is the name of a famous European pastry and there was and still is a famous restaurant chain in Europe called Tom Pouce.
This neat example has Tom holding a cake with the logo on the front of the base and "Le Marie Antoinette" on either side (I assume that's a play on "let them eat cake"..). Colors are solid, logos are in good shape. Some very minor nicking to the head rim, otherwise solid. A really rare find here. $385
12 Bozo The Clown And His Pal Oodles Tough Gem MB $500
Gorgeous lot featuring the iconic Bozo The Clown, a tough one to find, and his sidekick Oodles The Duck. Both dolls have had some nicks and chips beautifully restored and look gem mint on the shelf.

13 Phantom Of The Opera Nodder Tough Gem NrMt+ MB MB $250
A pretty rare doll, doesn't show up often, last one I had was 2 and a half years ago and have only had a handful over the years. This was issued to promote Universal Studios remake of the classic movie which was released in the summer of 1962. A beautiful example with shiny coloring and paint and a solid stamped decal. (I bet Universal was thrilled when they saw the finished product, the N is backwards and the U was left out of studios!). This one is all original and looks terrific. Shiny colors with a nice label. Only flaws are some very light chipping under the head rim, the rest is super. $484
14 LSU Tigers Mascot Rare Gem MB $500
An extremely rare doll, only the 5th one that I've been able to find in my 16 years selling these. A very detailed doll with a great paint job and super colors and gloss. Embossed logo is strong.

15 Baylor Bears Mascot Gem NrMt MB $140
Bright and shiny Baylor Bear mascot. Great colors, solid logo. Flaws are some light chipping under the head rim and some scattered surface marks to the paint. Displays great. $169

16 The Citadel Type 4 Toes Up Rare only the 2nd I've Had NrMt+ MB $300
Well, this is a really rare doll. This is from the neat Type 4 College set (ball horizontal, bullet shaped head on various colored bases) and the only other one that I've seen was in my June 2009 Auction. He's in great all original condition with nice decals and no chips, cracks or hairlines. A few scattered marks to the paint but all minor. Good looking, scarce doll.$300

17 Purdue Type 4 Toes Up Black Jersey Variation Rare NrMt MB $200
This is a very scarce variation, it's a Purdue example from the Big Ten Type 4 set but this one has the black jersey rather than the standard gold that is normally found. I've only seen a couple over the years so it's a very tough doll to find. He's in nice shape with solid colors and gloss. Decals are pretty good with just some minor wear. All original except for a few spot touch ups to the paint that I needed my black light to spot. Some scattered light wear and marks to the paint and a small nick to nose (well hidden by the face mask) are the flaws. Great find here for you College collectors.

18 Notre Dame Square Base Shamrock Nodder NrMt/Mt MB $200
Might be the hardest to find Irish doll, I've only had a half dozen and only the 2nd in the last ten years! It's a beauty with sharp solid colors and gloss. Decals are also strong all around. He's all original with no chips, cracks or hairlines. A very tough doll that looks great.$266

Otherwise all original and solid.$451
20 Pittsburgh Steelers Type 1 Toes Up Gem MB $240
A very scarce example, this is the tough to find Type 1 example ( ball vertical, goofy face, gold base with the small decal). Only the 3nd one that I've had in the last 10 years. Colors and gloss are super, no chips or cracks. Embossed chest logo, base decal and helmet decal and stripe are super (note the historically accurate one helmet decal). Some chips and cracks to the head have been beautifully restored and he looks gem minty on display. (any white spots you see in the pix is from camera glare).$429

21 Dallas Cowboys Type 1 Toes Up NrMt MB $150

Another tough to find doll from the "Type 1" series (goofy face, ball vertical, small base decal or embossed NFL logo), haven't had one in two years. He has nice shiny blue colors and solid decal. He doesn't have any cracks or hairlines but does have scattered light wear and surface marks to the paint. Nice doll that's pretty tough to find. $165
22 Pittsburgh Steelers Type 3 Toes Up Ex MB $120
A pretty tough doll, this is the Type 3 Toes Up (bullet shaped head, ball horizontal on a gold base with large base decal). Strong colors and gloss, decals are nice with some light wear to base decal. Flaws are some chips and a series of light hairlines coming up from the rim. Looks fine on display.

23 Houston Oilers Toes Up Variation Gem MB $300
This is the rare Oilers variation, often confused with the 1961 AFL doll. This also has a white base like the 1961 AFL doll, but is the "Bobbie Style" (shirt tucked in), rather than the baggy shirt. Extremely rare, I think I've seen fewer than 10 over the years. This one has had some cracks and chips restored and looks super with shiny colors and gloss. Helmet stripe, chest and side helmet decals are super, base decal has some misses. Looks minty. $330
24 Los Angeles Rams 1965 Gold Base Variation Gem NrMt MB $200
A very scarce doll, I've only seen this one a handful of times over the years and it's only the 4th I've had for auction. It's the 1965 Gold Base body with a head similar to a Type 2 Toes Up doll. They did not make a Rams Type 2 so it's not just a head switch, it's unique to the Rams it may have been a special order from the team. Looks super with lovely colors and gloss and great decals and horns. All original other than a few spot touch ups to the paint which blend in pretty well. I had to search with a flash light to find a couple of micro hairlines to rim. A tough one that looks great.$242

25 Los Angeles Rams 1960 Wood Base Gold Jersey Gem NrMt MB $240
A beautiful example from the very first football set, the 1960 Wood Base set. This is the first run Rams doll with the old school Gold jerseys, all subsequent Rams dolls were blue so these are much sought after. This one is super with bright colors, strong gloss and super logos and horns. Only flaws are a couple of light surface craze like hairlines to top of helmet. Looks super.$264

32 Boston Bruins Small High Skates Tough Gem ExMt MB $250

Flaws are several short faint hairlines to the rim that blend in well.$303

33 Cleveland Crusaders Blue Base Hockey NrMt+ MB $120
A pretty tough doll, this is part of a 4 doll set that includes the Boston Bruins (NHL), Crusaders (WHA), Whalers (WHA) and Braves (AHL). This one is all original with solid colors and gloss and a super chest logo. One tiny nick to the left side of rim is very minor, otherwise no chips, cracks or hairlines. Nice example of a doll that is usually very rough. $146

34 Montreal Canadiens 1962 Square Base NrMt+ MB $90
Pleasing little Canadiens example from the original 1962 Square Base set. Colors and gloss are solid, the paint is super throughout. Decals are perfect too. Only material flaws are some very light chipping under the head rim which is hidden and minor. In the early 1970's the original owner added a painted on #27 representing star player Frank Mahovlich. I guess technically that's a flaw but I think it's kind of neat and it looks great.$90

35 Detroit Red Wings 1962 Square Base Gem NrMt+ MB $90
Shiny Red Wings example from the original 1962 Square Base set. Colors and gloss are strong and the decals are too. Only flaws are a couple of very hard to spot surface hairlines to lower head that you really have to look for. Like the previous Montreal doll, in the early 1970's the original owner added a painted on #7 representing star player Red Berenson. Rather than detracting I think it kind of adds character and history to the doll..$90

36 Baltimore Clippers 1962 Square Base Hockey Gem NrMt MB $120
Super minor league hockey example with the unique 3 sided decal. All original with gem colors and gloss. The two front decals that show are super, side decal has a couple of misses. A minor nick to his nose and light flake to shoulder are the flaws.

Decals are strong. Flaws are a nick and few light hairlines to the rim and a craze circle on top of hat. Nice doll. $120
39 New York Mets White Base Blue Shoes Variation NrMt MB $150
This is the neat, pretty tough to find Mets doll from the 1961-63 White Base set that features the blue shoes rather than the traditional black. He's all original and in nice shape. Uniform is a solid off white, which is the norm for this doll, and the gloss is solid too. Decals have a few small misses but look pretty good.

40 Houston Colt 45's White Base ExMt MB $90
This is the standard Colt 45 White Base doll with the white uniform. Nice off white uniform with brownish orange trim. All 4 decals are strong. No cracks or hairlines bt does have a touch up under the chin that can be seen when you tip the head back but not on display. $121
41 Washington Senators White Base NrMt+ MB $120
Nice looking Senator example from the 1961-63 White Base set. Interesting to note that some Senators dolls came with a different facial mold then those found with other teams (I've seen a Mets and Bosox example in this style but that's it), not sure why. This one has strong colors, nice gloss and super decals. A touch up to the hat that you'll need a black light to spot is the only flaw. $145

The Sixers examples from the 1969 Lil Dribbler set, both black and white, are very tough and don't show up often. This one looks gem minty from the front with just some pin point flaking to the ball. There are two cracks to the back of the legs (front is fine) that could easily be fortified with glue and touched up if you like or it looks fine as is on display. $54
44 Lot of Two Chicago Bulls Lil Dribblers Gem NrMt/Mt MB $120
Great lot of 2 Bulls dolls, the white player in particular is a pretty tough one. Both are gem minty with super decals. A pin point flake or two are the only very minor flaws. $132
45 Boston Celtics Lil Dribbler Gem NrMt MB $50
Neat doll, produced in Taiwan after the Japan Lil Dribbler set, they probably saw a marketing opportunity since the Celtics were left out of the original Japan set. Doll is unique in that it is a Little Dribbler as well as a Bobbing Head doll. He has gem colors and shine with solid decals. One faint hairline in rear and a shellac drip or two are the flaws.

This is a tough basketball nodder that doesn't show up very often. Gem colors and gloss throughout. Chest decal is super, this one was given a painted base logo (they seemed to be very low on decals for this short lived set, I've had painted Sonics before and the Lakers example often comes with a painted logo too). One micro hairline to the rim that I had to really search for is the only flaw. $120

48 Rumpus Room Bowler Rare NrMt+ MB $80
One of the toughest Rumpus Room dolls of all, only the 2nd one that I've ever had. Funny how it works, I waited 16 years to get my first one back in February, now I get another 5 months later..

50 Los Angeles Angels Round White Base NrMt MB $80

This doll is part of a 4 doll set that also includes the Dodgers, Cubs, and Umpire. Tough to find and this one has nice off white colors and paint. Decal is in pretty nice shape. As was the case back in the early 60's with many Angels dolls, the LA decal on the hat was blacked out at the factory when they thought that the Angels were moving.

One of the prettiest dolls that you will see and probably the toughest 1968 Gold Base variation, this is the 49'ers with the rarer white helmet rather than the standard gold. First one of these I've had in over 5 years. Outstanding gem colors and shine, super decals and stripe, a beautiful example. All original with just some minor nicks under the head rim and a small indent to left collar area, neither of which detracts at all. This one literally glows on the shelf.$330

69 New York Yankees Gold Base Gem NrMt+ MB $120
Gorgeous pinstriped Yankee example from the 1967-72 Gold Base set. Very under rated, I find this to be one of the tougher dolls in the set, especially looking this good. He has super gem colors and gloss. Decals are strong with just some light flaking to chest decal and a tiny miss to hat. A factory mold flaw to chest and a very faint craze like surface hairline near right ear that you really have to search for are the only things to mention (you can see that I tried to take a pic of the craze mark but it's so fine that you can't see it in pictures). Super looking doll. $176

70 Philadelphia Phillies Gold Base Gem NrMt+ MB $100
This doll really shines. Pretty Phils swirl style example from the 1967-72 gold Base set with bright glossy colors throughout. Decals are strong with just a few little factory flaws.

All original and gem minty looking, the only flaw is a very faint, thin surface hairline behind his left ear that I really had to search for.$100

A very under rated doll in my opinion, the Angels from the 1967-72 Gold Base set is pretty tough to come across. Minor flaws are a micro hairline to chin, small mark to dimple and a couple of well hidden paint touch ups that I needed a black light to spot. Base decal is strong, chest and hat logos are good with each having a seam split. Neat halo decal version.

The Lions boy has bright colors and terrific gloss, decals are good with just a few scattered little misses. Some minor nicks and hairlines to the rim are the flaws. She's has glossy off white coloring with just some very faint hairlines to the head rim that you have to search for. A nice looking set that doesn't come around often. $865

They don't come around often, I've only had a handful to offer over the years. This is the only example of the original Washington Senators team that moved to Minnesota and became the Twins in 1961. The doll was quickly removed from production and replaced with the Twins so not many made it into circulation. This one is gorgeous with gem colors and gloss and super decals. My black light tells me he has had a cleaning and some work done to the hat (face is all original) but you can't tell with the naked eye. A rare doll that looks gem mint. $878

This is from the Type 1 series which featured the goofy face, small print decal with the ball held vertically. He has solid colors and gloss. Decals and helmet stripes are nice with just some minor misses.

06 Seattle Rainiers Drysdale Style Batter Rare NrMt+ MB $350
This is a very rare doll.. It's part of a 3 doll set that features a pitcher, catcher and batter and is known as the Drysdale Series as almost all of them feature the Los Angeles Dodgers. In 1962 the Seattle Rainiers Minor League club ordered a very small number of these dolls with the Seattle logos to sell at their games. I saw my first one back in December 2005 (a pitcher) and have had 3 catchers since, this is my first batter.

This one is in great shape, all original with strong colors and gloss. Comes with an S logo on hat and a Seattle logo on chest. The chest logo is interesting in that it said Seattle 1962 originally. This one must not have been sold in 1962 so they painted over the year with white paint (the 1962 is still noticeable up close). Just a micro hairline in rear and some very minor surface marks. Tough doll that looks great.$420
07 New York Yankees Wood Base Tough Gem MB $500

Rare find here.$330
10 Mississippi State Type 4 Toes Up Rare Gem MB $300

Normally this one comes with the "goofy face" type one head (see last picture) however this one has the standard Type 2 style head. What makes it interesting is that I've never seen or heard of a Rams Type 2 which makes it a neat find for you collectors who are looking for rarities.

It has some very typical mold flaws but overall is pretty good and a neat fine. $140

Looks great on display, the felt helmet usually is kind of ratty, this one is beautiful. Body paint and logos are super too. The only flaws are two unusual vertical hairline cracks on either side of his body but they don't really show on display. Pretty rare early example that I haven't had in over 5 years. $492
23 UCLA Bruins 1959-60 Felt Helmet Tough ExMt MB $120
One of the first football dolls made, and a very tough one to find, only the 3rd one that I've ever had. The head and felt helmet are in fantastic condition, it's very tough to find the felt in such nice shape. The body has some crazing and flaking as you can see, looks OK as is or if you're artistically inclined you could touch it up and make it look minty. Either way it's a neat doll that rarely shows up.
