Barbie Gay Parisenne NRFB Follow Me on Pinterest
Barbie’s Gay Parisienne #964 (1959) is considered one of the “Holy Grails” of Vintage Barbie Collecting.  It was one of two ensembles that was only made for one year – Barbie’s first year – 1959. It is very hard to find.  I don’t think I have ever seen one still in the original box before.  This one received 46 bids and sold for $5,457.98 in May 2014.

Highest Priced Vintage Barbie Doll

This was the highest priced eBay vintage Barbie doll over the last 30 days.  It was listed as a NRFB #2 Sample Barbie in Variation Busy Gal.    It received 2 bids and sold for $7,800.

One of the photos showed the end of the box stamped with the word SAMPLE.  Other than that, the seller did not give any information as to the provenance of this doll, which I find surprising.  If she would have been able to authenticate it & tell where it came from, it would have perhaps sold for an even higher price.  Perhaps it was a dressed box Barbie – but if so, why was the Busy Girl outfit a variation?

Vintage Barbie Doll Values – May 2011

Here are the highest priced items sold in the last month in the vintage Barbie category on eBay.

#1 Vintage Barbie Doll

 

This beautiful, blonde #1 Vintage Barbie Doll was the highest priced Vintage Barbie over the last 30 days.    The seller stated in the description that her Mother purchased the doll at a doll show in the 1970s.    She included her original swimsuit, box, earrings and shoes.

She received 35 bids and sold for $5650.55.  I was thinking that Vintage Barbie Doll Values are dclining, because about 10 or 12 years ago, this doll would have sold for $10,000 to $15,000.  However a similar Barbie doll sold in October 2009 for $4400.
