What Is the Typical Value of a Vintage Cabbage Patch Kid?
Prices for vintage Cabbage Patch Kids range widely on eBay, from about $6 for a 1980s Garden Girl mini-doll to about $1,000 for a full-sized, cheerleader-themed Xavier Roberts doll from 1978. The cost for a Cabbage Patch Kid varies based on condition, age, rarity and manufacturer.
On Etsy.com, Cabbage Patch dolls from the 1980s are priced in the $100 to $300 range, as of 2015. Dolls that come with an intact box and all original accessories, including outfit, socks, shoes, ribbons and birth certificate, are more valuable. The color of the Xavier Roberts signature, printed on the left butt cheek of every doll, reveals its year of manufacture. Black signatures indicate a doll that is from 1983 or earlier. Certain head molds and hairstyles are more coveted because they were made in limited quantities. Red-haired dolls are particularly rare. Dolls in pristine condition, without any flaws or damage, are higher in value.
