It's a question that's often asked: What's a Ty Beanie Baby worth? The answer is usually not what a collector wants to hear. Many are worth just a fraction of their issue price. Of course, the hard-to-find, limited editions and early-year Ty Beanie Babies are worth more, but the vast majority of recent plush toys sell for just a few dollars.

The auction of choice for common Ty Beanie Babies is the bulk auction.

Many sellers offer the retired items in large lots up to 200 at a time. These wind up selling for approximately $2-$3 apiece, sometimes even less.

But there are still some highly collectible Beanie Babies that are selling on eBay for hundreds, and even thousands, of dollars.
