1. Vintage 1959 Barbie
There might be many Barbies floating around these days, but there is only one original. And she reigns supreme. If you have one of these Barbies sitting around then you just became rich. A first edition in good condition can bring in around $23,000.
The original Barbie sports a nifty, retro hairdo, a zebra-striped bathing suit, high heels and her classic hour-glass figure. Only two other Barbies hold a candle to the original (as far as price goes), and they are the De Beers 40th Anniversary Barbie (sold for $85,000) and the Stefani Canturi Barbie, which sold for a whopping $302,500.
