You should put "p-" before bear....more important than "sit down".

P- dash gets no results on ebay but sit down seems to get some. Not sure which way to go.

What do you think something like this is worth?

true, although perhaps instead of "linen" and "T-Neck"...which I don't think anyone will key in as a search term, put a "p-" and the word "polo"...gotta have that.

probably fetch $100-$200 - not sure if turtle-necks get as much as regular necks?

OM-FG you have listed this item without the word "POLO" in the description? I recommend ending the listing, revising the description, and relisting! Otherwise some wise bidder is getting a bargain.

Polo is in the description, just not the title. I can search "Polo Bear" and it shows in the search results. After one day I have 13 watchers

Sweet! but...Huh? I just searched "vintage polo sit down bear" - only two results come up.

Yours doesn't appear. You would have to check "include title and description" which you can't rely on for really important keywords.

It will still do well but "Polo" in the title would help.

I understand that you're happy with the opening bid and that's great. However, I'd trust Jimmy and Hermosa, they're pros.

Sorry. Meant to write "in the title" , you need the word POLO in the title (not just description). For example your title would read:

VTG RALPH LAUREN POLO BEAR SWEATER 1992 P WING SIT DOWN

etc... there's definitely collectors who look specifically for "sit down" bears. http://cgi.ebay.com/POLO-RALPH-LAUREN-V ... 0373811226" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

also, it helps to YELL! with ALL CAPS. ;)
