Maybe you’re one of those people who stocked up on Beanie Babies in the ’90s because you thought they’d be worth a fortune one day. But after two decades of taking up space, you’re ready to sell ’em all for pennies.
Well . . . be careful. There’s one family in Cornwall, England that actually won the Beanie Baby lottery, and didn’t realize it.
22-year-old Ryan Flanaghan and his 20-year-old girlfriend Leah Rogers went to a garage sale earlier this month and bought a purple Beanie Baby for about $15.
Turns out the people selling it had no idea it was a limited edition Princess Diana memorial bear. There were only 100 made, and it could be worth up to $93,000.
Leah and Ryan put it up on eBay with a starting bid of $37,500 . . . and a “Buy It Now” price of $60,000. Their auction ends tomorrow . . . and so far, they haven’t gotten any bids.
