An authenticated Ty #1 Bear Beanie Baby sold on eBay for $1,200 on January 30, 2013. Becky's True Blue Beans had authenticated the Beanie and described it as, "MWMT- MQ. Absolutely Magnificent & Ultra Rare Beanie!" The heart tag was signed by Ty Warner and was numbered 202 out of 253. The price this Beanie sold for was a big drop from a December 2012 eBay sale when a similar Beanie numbered #158 sold for $2,499. The #1 Bear was issued on December 12, 1998 to Ty Sales Reps and is considered one of the most valuable Beanie Baby of all times!
