Blackie The Bear Beanie Babies

Like all Beanie Babies that were apart of the 1st generation, Blackie The Bear versions with the 1st generation hang and tush tag can be worth money. Finding a 1st generation Blackie can be somewhat challenging, but getting one from another generation is quite easy. The only Blackie Beanies that have any real value in the current market are 1st generation or some 2nd generation ones.  Typically Blackie’s with 1st generation tags can sell for over $100. Recently an Authenticated 2nd Generation Hang Tag – 3rd Generation Tush Tag Blackie only sold for $24.99 on eBay. It typically costs around $10-15 to get a Beanie Baby authenticated so you can see even nice Blackie’s that aren’t the 1st generation versions are not worth very much.

1st Generation Tags = Worth Something
Any Other Tags – Not Worth Something

The Chicago Bears and Boston Bruins have done promotions giving away a Blackie Beanie Baby and some of those can be worth $5-15. Those promotions were done in 1998. The 1st generation Blackie Beanie Babies are the only ones worth something.  Be sure to check your Beanie Tags to know which version you have.

    Hello. Blackie Beanie Babies have value if they have a combination of 1st/1st Generation Hang and Tush Tags or 2nd Generation Hang Tag with a 1st Generation Tush Tag. There are links on this page to help you identify which one you have. The dates on the tag alone will not tell you which generation you have.

    Love My Beanies - 18 November, 2014

    Blackie’s only have value if they are 1st or 2nd Generation.

How can you tell which generation your hang tag is from? I have Blackie but I’m not sure how to tell.

Ryan - 2 September, 2014

Ummmm I just found all my old beanie babies. I have this bear. 4011. Heart tag. Untouched condition.

Theresa Larrick - 25 June, 2014

I have a Blackie Bear, 1st Generation, Tush tag has:made in China,1993, PVC pellets. I bought it at a Cracker Barrel before Beanie Babies were popular. It doesn’t have the “heart” tag, since I bought it before they were collectibles. Still like new. How much is it worth?

    Love My Beanies - 25 June, 2014

    Hello! That’s unfortunate it doesn’t have the heart tag as that could bring some value. As it sits, it’s maybe only $5 or so. It could of had either a 1st-3rd Generation Heart Tag. There is no way to tell which one it had, which is why it hurts the value a lot.

Damelia Lanier - 11 April, 2014

OH I have blackie the bear the first generation in A 1 condition and was wondering how much it is worth.and where can I sell it.I also have other first generation beanie babies.

    Love My Beanies - 16 April, 2014

    Hello Damelia! A Blackie with the 1st Generation Heart Tag and Tush Tag is worth decent money. I haven’t seen one for sale in quite a long time, but it’s conservatively worth over $100. The best place to sell Beanie Babies is on eBay. Typically 1st Generation Beanie Babies sell the best when they are authenticated by a third party like True Blue Beans: or Peggy G:
