Hi there. This sale is for a vintage doll. It is a Dick Clark autograph doll. It is about 25 to 26 inches long. It is in nice shape. The front of his brown hair has a little rub off. There is a little rub off of the color to the back of the hair. I have taken pictures so you can see all of this.
He is wearing a white shirt, plaid tie, bright yellow vest, tan/beige jacket, grey pants, plaid legs, and oxford shoes. He has a pen clipped on the yellow vest. The pen says Made in USA. There is scuffing and wear to the bottom of the one shoe. I am guessing someone danced him around...:)
He has a plastic head and hands. The arms, legs, and torso are soft. I think the clothes are pretty clean for their age. I don't know if the outfit could be removed and washed or not. I am not cleaning any of the dolls up that I got from this estate sale. I will let the winner fix anything he or she feels fit to do.
I was lucky to go to an estate sale of a woman who used to have a doll shop. I got many, many dolls. I tried to pick dolls I thought others would love. I am in my fifties so I am old enough to remember Dick Clark hosting The American Bandstand show. I also loved watching him on the 20,000 dollar Pyramid show. I still enjoy seeing him on the New Year's Rockin' Eve show each year.
I tried to research about the doll a little bit. I read it was an autograph doll. I guess that explains the pen on the vest. I do not have the original box he came in sad to say. I think he would make a great addition to a 50s collection or a vintage doll collection. I am sure there must be others like me who think "The World's Oldest Teenager" is great.
I do not charge for handling. I go to the post office about every other day when I am listing items. I will put in the weight so you can see what it would cost to have him sent to you if you win. If you are international I can go to the post office when the sale ends and see if I can mail first class international which is cheaper. Many times an item must be 4 pounds or under and the box cannot be too big.
Thanks for looking. I hope Dick Clark brought back some fun memories for you....:)
