Rare Ultimate Warrior Action Figure

Currently, one of these sells for at least $2,500. The reason that they are worth so much is that only five of them were ever made, which makes them highly desired by wrestling action figure collectors.
Sunny’s Hall Of Fame Ring

During this tumultuous time in her life, she even sold her Hall of Fame ring that went for more than $3,000 on eBay and is likely worth even more now.
Talking Hulk Hogan Doll
Over the years, Hulk Hogan has had more memorabilia released than he probably even knows exists. While some of it may not be worth anything, others are worth a chunk of change. One of these is a WWF Talking Hulk Hogan doll.
What makes this particular item especially valuable is that it is even signed by Hogan himself and comes with a certificate of authenticity with a picture of Hogan holding the doll. Today, this doll is worth around $800.

WWE Replica Championship Belt
If you go into the house of any wrestling fan, it’s likely you will see at least one replica championship belt on the wall, as you used to be able to buy them for cheap back in the day. However, the “Elite Series” WWE Championship replica belt is worth a small fortune.
You can purchase one of these on the WWEShop.com for around $2,000. So, if you happen to stumble upon one of these for cheap, buy it as fast as you can and keep it close.

Ultimate Warrior Knee Pads
During the 1980s and 1990s, the Ultimate Warrior was one of the biggest names in wrestling alongside Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, and others. So, when he finally retired, it’s no surprise that his already expensive memorabilia shot up in value, which is the case for these knee pads.
Worn and signed by the Warrior himself, these are the pads he wore at SummerSlam 1992, where he defeated Savage to win the World Heavyweight Championship. Today, they’re worth more than $5,000.
WrestleMania Pinball Machine
Unless you find one on the side of the road or know someone that’s trying to get rid of one, it’s unlikely that you’ll find a pinball machine for anything less than $1,000. Add the fact that it’s WrestleMania-themed, and the price skyrockets even more.
Currently, a WrestleMania pinball machine can go anywhere from $5,000 to $6,000. So, if you happened to get one of these when they first came out, it’s definitely gone up in value.

Kamala Moon Belly Action Figure
One of the most popular wrestlers of the 1980s, Kamala stood at 6-foot-7, and although he was a fan-favorite, he never won a championship or was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
However, if you have one of these action figures lying around and still in the box, you could be sitting on a bit of money. Incredibly, one of these action figures can cost hundreds of dollars if sold to a buyer that’s desperate enough to add it to their collection.
WWF Superstars Shoot-Out
In 1991, the Remco toy company decided it would be a good idea to come out with “WWF Superstars Shoot-Out,” which was essentially a hockey board game but instead of hockey players, it featured popular wrestlers from the past and present.
Unsurprisingly, the game didn’t do particularly well when it first came out, but has gone up in value over the years. At one point, there was an eBay listing for a whopping $400!
Signed Ric Flair And Shawn Michaels Photo
At WrestleMania XXIV, Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair faced off in the ring with the agreement being that Flair would retire if he lost. The fight ended with Flair begging Michaels to finish him off, which he did, but not before saying, “I’m sorry, I love you.”

Diamond Studd Action Figure
Scott Hall portrayed the Diamond Studd character back when the WCW was a thing. Although the wrestler wasn’t all that popular at the time, there is one piece of his memorabilia that is worth thousands.

What kind of WWE fan wouldn’t want the actual crutch that Rusev broke on Dolph? This piece of memorabilia is the result of an incident that took place during a show in Milwaukee in the summer of 2015.

Hulk Rookie Toy
Before Hulk Hogan became the sensation that he is in the United States, he spent some time wrestling as a rookie in Japan under the name Ichiban, or Number One.

Hulk Hogan Prototype
Arguably the Holy Grail of wrestling memorabilia/collectibles is the 16-inch LJN WWF Hulk Hogan Prototype Production Cast Mold Figure. This is the only one in existence that makes it of particular interest to the biggest die-hard collectors.
However, the catch is that it’s being offered for $50,000 on eBay! Now, we don’t know how desperate some people are to have this, but we’re willing to assume that’s out of the price range for the majority of people.
Miss Elizabeth Purple Skirt Action Figure
