#1 Employee Bear: Ty Beanie Babies


#1 Employee Bear
Style Number None
Swing Tag 5
Tush Tag 6
Serial Numbered #/253

 Value: Big Money


Notes: These are extremely rare. Serial Numbered to #/253 in addition to being autographed by Ty Warner on the inside of the swing tag. Distributed to top selling employees at the Ty Sales Conference in December 1998. The event was held December 11-14, 1998 at the Fairmount Hotel located in Chicago, IL.

Value: Very hard to find. One sold on May 1, 2013 for $1,200 by ebay seller keng205. It’s one of the highest priced Beanie Babies we’ve tracked on our Beanie Worth Money page. If you find one of these for sale, generally they are authenticated by a third party source like Peggy Gallagher, True Blue Beans or another respected source.

  • Hi, how do I go about authenticating my much loved #1 signed beanie bear? Here in the UK? I have a few I need to be authenticated.

  • Hi
    I have a number one beany baby bear. He is larger than the regular beany babies. He looks just like the red number one bear and has the TY tags.

    But unlike the first one this one came out in 2002 and is not signed.

    Does anyone know how much this one is worth.
