This is a buddy lee doll I found a flea market in Los Angeles. The doll is in excellent condition except for two small cracks along the sides of the neck.
I have been researching and I can find no information or pictures of this doll online. I have found some Pepsi Buddy Lee replicas, but they have different outfits and and a marking on the bottom of the foot numbering them. This one has no such markings.
I have read that Lee released a Pepsi Salesman version at some point, but as I mentioned, I can find no pictures or information on it. I have another Buddy Lee doll from the late 40's and is of a hard plastic, this one is shorter and I believe is of the original Composite material (which would place it at pre-1949). It is much heavier.
Any information on whether or not this is an original Buddy Lee or what year it is from would be greatly appreciated.
If it is an original, I am sure I got a good deal on it, but regardless, I am also curious to wether or not it has any value.
Thanks for the help!!
