An authenticated Ty Billionaire 1 Beanie Baby sold on eBay for $499 on November 19, 2012. The item was purchased through eBay's buy it now option.
Becky's True Blue Beans had authenticated the Beanie and described it as mint with mint tags, museum quality. It had a fifth-generation heart tag and a sixth generation Korean tush tag.
Like all other Billionaire 1 Ty Beanie Babies, the heat tag was autographed by Ty Warner but it was not numbered.
Only an estimated 600 were produced in 1998 and they were only given to Ty sales reps.
