As a new collector of Boyds bears, I was very curious about the mysterious "CVG" I kept coming across in various auctions. I went out and got myself a copy of CheckerBee's Collector's Value Guide. And I am glad I did! It is chock full of info about almost all the Boyds Bears, etc. that have been "put up for adoption." I just wish that the pictures were a little bigger and complete. There a few too many blank spots giving neither a picture nor any info. Someone should send in photos of the ones missing so the author could include them in future editions. I do not recall seeing an address for such.
I also wish there were a quick way to reference "pairs", "trios" since everything is listed alphabetically by first letter within an animal it is not always obvious to the novice that a character may have a friend or relative. But having written all that, it is a wonderful guide with a nice look, quality glossy paper, interesting tidbits and places to write down notes, etc.
It is a VALUE guide not a pure reference but it seems to be the best one out there and the one which is referred to the most. I may not buy it every year, the Boyds catalogues are great!, but maybe every two or three just to keep relatively current.

If you are looking for a current and up to date Boyds guide this isn't it! Check out the Boyds Tracker by Bangzzom for the latest and greatest guide.

Verified Purchase
Didn't notice that it was a 2001 edition. Big mistake. I am sure the values have changed by now, either up or down

I found this book to be very helpful when trying to establish the value of my resin bears. Even though I'm not planning on selling any of them, I'm always in the market for more and want to make sure the price is in line. I also like to see whether the value of my bears is going up or going down in today's market. I think anyone with resin bears would find this a helpful reference.
