The most expensive smurfs in the world.
three Christmas Smurfs are the most expensive smurfs
in the world. They were sold in January 2001 on Ebay
in Germany. The "Christmas Smurf with Stocking"
sold for $2,687, the "Christmas Angel Smurf"
sold for $2,585 and the "Christmas Bellringer
Smurf" sold for $2,500. The reason for these
extraordinarly high prices is that these smurfs never
made it into regular production.
The "Bellringer" was featured in a 1985
smurf catalogue but was never produced. Nobody knows
how many of these prototypes were made, possibly only
these single figures exist.
In December 2002 even a fake of the "Angel"
was sold on Ebay in Germany for $581 clearly stating
it was a fake!
Who knows when or even if any of these figures will
appear on the open market again. I have heard stories
of the current owners of these three being offered
thousands to sell but always declining. We will just
have to wait and see, any news will of course be posted
here. I can dream.............
