1907 Steiff Teddy Bear

Sells for $1081.00 on an eBay Auction

Evelyn G. from Ann Arbor, MI chatted with Ken Yenke as he looks over the 1907, well loved, Steiff teddy bear that she brought to the November 7, 2010 teddy bear show.


"I've had this little bear for over 25 years and he's getting restless; wanting to find a new home," said Evelyn. "I was so excited when I heard that he was going to Nebraska to live!"

Ken holds the 1907 brown, original Steiff teddy bear.

"If you can't afford a bear this age that is in pristine condition, then this little bear is a treasure to add to your collection," said Ken.


The bear holds his head up high, proud to be 103 years old!

The value of advertising

Evelyn noticed an ad in the Ann Arbor Newspaper and brought her vintage bear to the Ann Arbor Teddy Bear Show where she met Ken Yenke.

He appraised the bear and Evelyn wanted to sell it. Ken suggested Valerie sell it for her on eBay. Evelyn gave the bear to Valerie and it sold for $1081.00 on the eBay auction! “The last 30 seconds of bidding were furious!” Valerie exclaimed.
