At a yard sale in the early 90's I found something I had never seen before. A book of Pope John Paul II paper dolls. It was unused and I thought it was pretty cool, even though I am not Catholic. So I paid the 50-cents and took them home.
I looked through it and was kind of amazed. There are 32 pages, 4 paper dolls, 19 costumes, plus accessories like the ordination robe and the miter.
Sadly, Pope John Paul II passed away in 2005. I still have the paper dolls. Uncut and preserved in prestine condition. With a new Pope being elected this week, I was thinking of what the value of my Pope paper dolls might be.
I went on line and found that they are selling the same paper dolls on Amazon for $9.52 new and $3.50 used. What???? Could it be that Pope paper dolls are not as valuable as I thought?
No problem, I will put them back in the trunk and save them for my descendants, who can pull them out and see if they have increased in value down the road.
