Ever found something you collected in childhood that is now quite a rare and valuable thing? I could’ve never guessed my talking Rufus the Lion has a value of $300.00. He’s in well-loved condition. Mint in box of this stuffed lion (put out by Montgomery Wards’s in the 70’s) have gone for as much at $1000 on eBay!
