Ah, the 1990s. It was a time filled with wacky fashion, the best Disney movies ever (in our humble opinion), and, of course, lots and lots of Beanie Babies! Yep, those stuffed, little collectibles were all the rage for a period of time, so much so, in fact, people started stock-piling them. Since most were limited editions, collectors had the idea that they might be worth a ton of dough someday. And, believe it or not, they were right!
As it turns out, select Beanie Babies are selling for a lot of money on eBay these days, sometimes to the tune of over half-a-million big ones.
