PLASTIC “Gold Base” proto type dolls= Boston & Philadelphia only seen

A PLASTIC Boston doll sold for $473 (Oct 2011)

*** CAUTION =  JOHNSTOWN JETS DOLLS WERE REPAINTED TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS DOLLS. THE DECALS WERE REMOVED AND THE WORDS ON THE CHEST & BASE WERE HAND PAINTED ON THE DOLL. WITH ALL THE DOLL RESTORATION & REPAIR ARTISTS THAT EXIST TODAY, I WOULD BE VERY CAUTIOUS BUYING THESE DOLLS UNLESS YOU KNOW THE SELLER OR OWNER.
