Hello,

All of these collector plates are from the early 1980's.

Katie the Tightrope Walker , value $12.00

Johnny the Strong Man, value $10.00

Little Jack Horner, $17.00

I was wondering about the value since they are signed by the artist in sharpie
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 2 years ago

These are not considered highly collectible pieces and the value stays the same even with a signature in pen. All of these also came with certificates of authenticity that had the same signature in pen on the card, so a signature on the plate does not add any value in this case.
