The prices shown are an AVERAGE of auction results. They are based on Ebay sales and auction sites such as Inside the Park Collectibles, The Nodder Exchange, Hunt Auctions, Heritage Auctions, Huggins & Scott and others. They do NOT reflect any buyer's premium (+14 to 24%) that some auction houses put on top of the sale price.

Marketplace Values   ***** NEW PRICING - PLEASE READ BELOW 

I update this price guide every three months. The values contained in the column labelled EX / NrMT will now reflect the average price realized for dolls over the past 2 years going back from the date of the most recent update. There are some dolls such as the BLINKERS and the Swedish dolls that just are not seen that often, so the prices shown below are over a longer period than 2 years. Also, some of the minor league dolls don't come up for auction often enough to get a good feel of what they are worth. 

I am always open and grateful to collector's who let me know when they have made a purchase for a vintage hockey doll that they purchased from another collector or at a collector show. The more prices I get or find, the more accurate the price guide.

* Signifies a price changed during the last update which was completed on April 2, 2022. (I update this price guide every three months.

PLEASE REMEMBER - prices are just a guide and are always subject to change. There are many variables that influence selling prices. For instance, prices in the USA and Canada differ because the sport of hockey has greater importance to fans and collectors in Canada. Also, dolls prices may be higher in the actual city of the team that the doll represents.
