Pricing of Hockey Bobbing Head Dolls

Prices shown are an average of auction results =   Values based on eBay sales & from other auction sites = Inside the Park Collectibles , Nodder-Exchange , Hunt Auctions & others. 

"OLD VALUES" = a average of prices realized for dolls in auctions between 2006 - 2015  (updated May 2018) Thanks to a fellow collector (M. Mays), I was able to use an interesting website called  "Worthpoint".com to research for older & more hockey doll sales that I did not know of. 

"CURRENT VALUES" = a average of prices realized for dolls in auctions from April 2015   thru  PRESENT DATE.  

I have been updating the price guide ~every 3 months.  * signifies a price changed during latest update on July 1, 2019

 

REMEMBER -- Prices are just a guide & are always subject to change. There are many variables; such as prices in the USA & Canada differ because of how important hockey is in Canada. Also, dolls prices may be higher in the actual city that designates the doll.
