Lot # 1368 (of 1807)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Circa 1963 Square Green Base Bobbing-Head Dolls (8)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,896.00

It is believed that these unusual Square Green Base bobbing-head dolls were not intended to be a set unto themselves, and were actually made from leftover white base doll stock materials with bases painted green to match the newly designed line of round Green Base dolls. They are quite scarce, and were likely only produced during this brief transitional period. This lot includes eight different Square Green Base dolls: Milwaukee Braves (Nr/Mt); two Tigers (each slightly different; Mint and Vg); Senators sideways hat (Vg-Ex); Senators (Vg-Ex); Reds (Mint); Twins (Gem Mint); and Giants (Vg). This collection originally appeared as Lot 928 in REA's April 2005 auction, where it sold for $1,624. At that time, all of the dolls were personally examined and graded by bobbing-head expert Tim Hunter. The lot has been consigned directly from the original purchaser in 2005. Total: 8 dolls. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,896.00
