Rare Beanie Babies Offered on eBay for Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars

After collecting and hoarding Beanie Babies for the past 20 years — or letting them collect dust in the back of your closet — those plush, pellet-stuffed dolls may be worth more than sentimental value. One seller on Ebay is requesting $100,000 for an eight-doll collection of "rare, retired special-edition bears in perfect condition." Scholastic even released a Beanie Baby Handbook in 1998, which compared the sticker price of each doll upon initial release with the going rate in 1998 and the estimated value in 2008.
