Time to cash in.
Your Old Beanie Babies Can Be Worth $90,000

If there's one thing that screams 90's more than Gigapets, it's Beanie Babies. Everyone you knew owned at least 12 of them.

And if you ever asked a beanie bay collector why they have so many, they would inevitably answer: "They're going to be worth a lot of money some day. You'll see."

Turns out that Beanie Baby values did not skyrocket as everyone predicted. But hope fully you didn't throw out your old collection because there actually are certain Beanie Babies that are worth a small fortune.

So go dig up your old beanie babies, hope that those little TY labels are still attached and check to see if you own any of these:
