Customer Question
Where can we take...

Where can we take a MAC beanie babie to be appraised in the DFW area. We believe it has several errors

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Its a June 10 1998 "MAC" cardinal beanie baby and a June 23 1998 "Sammy"

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Appraiser should know?

Both in mint condition

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help. I can certainly appraise them here. What I'll need:

A photo of the front and back (opened up) of the hang tag for each

A photo of the front and back of the tush tag for each

Let me know if there is a stamp inside either tush tag.

Sincerely,

Jennifer

Are there number stamps inside the folded tush tags?

None that we can see.
Appraiser: Appraiser JM, Certified Appraiser replied 7 months ago

Thanks.

Mac first.

So Mac has 2 errors, technically--all of them have the 1998/1999 discrepancy, although many list that as an error, and he doesn't have the Gasport/Gosport error. He has the space before the exclamation point, and the missing number inside the tush tag.

That said...while you will see crazy listing prices, up to thousands of dollars, those are not prices that are being achieved. These articles always come out based on these listing prices, and ignore "sold" prices. I went into the database of sold prices for Mac, with 2 or 3 errors, over the past 5 years. The selling prices max out at $15, maybe $20, with most selling for $12.

Sammy

Sammy likewise misses the Gosport/Gasport error. He has the space before the exclamation point. He has the mismatched dates, and the missing date stamps. So 2-3 errors, depending on whether you count the dates.

Once again, while you'll see crazy listing prices and crazy articles, the completed resale doesn't match it. For this one, we are likely looking in the $20 - $30 range, based on final selling prices over the past 5 years.
