|Notice that the label is still on the box, and there’s no major damage.|
These dolls were offered in comic book ads back in the 1960’s. They were produced by the 100 Doll Co. They could all be purchased for just $1.00 with $0.25 shipping and handling! My inner child is already rummaging in the couch for spare change.
|They act like Styrene is a selling point…|
|Hmm, One 7′ Monster or 100 little Lilliputian dolls… These Archie Comics were just full of great “deals.”|
Although the 100 Dolls Co. wasn’t the best at advertising, they definitely knew how to gather a diverse group of characters ranging from babies, nurses, dancers, foreigners, clowns, cowboys, and brides.
And of course this collection wouldn’t be complete without Santa and his reindeer.
|I’m not even gonna ask about how Santa fits in with this group.|
Although there were originally 100 dolls, the set I bought came with 99. Much to my frustration and regardless of how many times I re-counted them; there were definitely only 99. This set is still pretty close to complete when compared to other sold listings (which usually only have ~80 of the dolls). I listed it on the aggressive side as an auction at 49.99 +4.99 S/H. Even though I didn’t get much action on the bids, I was OK with that since I started the price so high.
Here’s the breakdown:
- Purchase price – $0.50
- End Selling Price – $56.80
- Fees and Shipping/Handling – $10.66
Total Profit: $45.64
Available Cash to go out and buy more: $46.14
Profit per doll – $4.564
I wish all my flips were this easy and carried so little risk. Any time I can purchase an item for less than $1 and potentially sell it for more than $15 is a great deal. Selling it for over $45 profit is a home run!
