The Ultimate 1967-72 Gold Base Bobbing-Head Doll Complete Set (35)
Starting Bid - $1,500.00, Sold For - $7,540.00
Complete set of every issued 1967-72 Gold Base bobbing-head doll, including every major variation, comprised of a total of 35 dolls. The collection is highlighted by several key rarities including extraordinary high-grade examples of the Kansas City A's green and gold uniform doll and the Pilots. It would seem appropriate to quote bobbing-head expert Tim Hunter's cataloguing notes verbatim regarding this lot: "I can confidently predict no one will ever see the likes of this lot again no matter where you look or how long you live. The fortunate winning bidder will get every issued gold base doll in EVERY major (not counting hat styles or holding ball and bat) variation. Both the National and American League teams are included. Making this even more incredible is the fact that each and every doll is Gem Nr/Mt to Mint with the exception of the Astros (shooting star variety, which is Ex). This is a fantastic museum-quality lot." Well, we guess Tim liked this lot.
