He is a rare piece & is hand-signed by Xavier Roberts, the creator. Xavier Roberts hand-signed less then 500 Cabbage Patch dolls, out of millions produced. The candy apple red, corduroy suit with teddy bear motif & undershirt are original & came with my doll.
This bald head, blue-eyed, peaches & cream skin tone baby will melt your heart. Yes, I had fun creating this listing. Some dolls did not even come with a machine stamp at all & the really rare ones were hand-signed by Xavier Roberts.He randomly chose some dolls to sign throughout their production. It was very hard for me to price mine.
How do you put a price tag on your favorite doll? A little history & provenance on Milton Eric. If you remember the 1980's, Cabbage Patch Dolls were almost impossible to find. They flew off the shelves in 3 minutes, when stores were freshly stocked, after the truck delivered new inventory.
My mother worked in the Miami-Dade County Courthouse & her colleague said she could get one. Her husband was the General Manager of a TOY'S R US.
It was my favorite doll throughout my childhood, even over my Barbie collection. I loved this doll so much, that I handled him with great care. Condition: Excellent & very clean. Both the face & body are in great condition.
I tend to scrutinize detail in depth. I no longer have the original box with papers. However, it was meticulously maintained & was stored in an airtight container, to guard against humidity & oxidization.I cut the tag off the side of the doll when I was a kid. My father examined the signature under a 10 power loop & confirmed it is hand-signed.
He used to own antique stores in Miami up until 2000. Commissioned during the estate probate process, to assess the value of an estate, due to his expertise.Milton Eric is a very sweet & dynamic little guy. When he is not resting in his air tight box, he can be found making people smile. He has a vibrant personality & a good sense of humour. I took some modeling pictures of him, that really capture his spirit & favorite things. Milton Eric likes to get on the statue with his arms out & recreate that scene from "The Titanic". He also likes to hang in the car & pretend he is a cool kid. I would like Milton Eric to go to a good home: A die hard Cabbage Patch collector, doll enthusiast or a child who will hug & kiss him would be awesome. A reasonable offer will not be turned down.
