You'd be surprised what sort of dolls are out there, and quite frankly how much some of them are worth.  My grandmother used to collect them.  My inheritance?  A Michael Jackson doll, from back when he was black.  Worth a few thousand but I'd never sell it.

The family speculates the first doll belongs to Winfrey herself, Hamilton said. The owner bought the No. 2 doll, which looks like Winfrey as an adult, in 1987 for $275.

That description was much needed, otherwise we'd have no idea what an Oprah Winfrey doll looks like. An Oprah doll, as a child, would just be creepy.

Couple is in the 80s... Time to put the doll back in the box and get in the box yourself. Why waste police resources tracking down the thieves when the victims will be dead in a few years anyway.

So...porcelain comes in colors other than white. I did not know that.

Is it the fat Oprah version or the rare slim model?

So, after being robbed 26 years ago, they've been robbed again?

Anything's rare if you get specific enough. Doesn't mean it's valuable.

moto-geek: Is it the fat Oprah version or the rare slim model?


I thought the versions had a pump and release valve system so you could inflate or deflate them to match her real life figure.

There was one set of footprints leading to the home and one set leaving. Investigators believe they are looking for one suspect.


I'd bet $10 Jesus was carrying him.

But the Elvis collector plates were OK right?

But when you take its makeup off, it looks like a rare porcelain Carl Weathers doll.

This sounds like a PS contest starter.

If there is only one of those things on the entire planet, it automatically is rare.

So, yeah, if someone made an Oprah doll, and that's the only one, it's rare.

//And probably undercooked.

I think the Aunt Jemima's are still worth more.
