Most Expensive Brady Bunch Collectibles, Ranked
If you grew up in the 1970s, you likely watched "The Brady Bunch" religiously. The show reflected the perfect blended family, whose problems were solved with a lot of laughs (and understanding parents) within 30 minutes each week.
It's no wonder Brady Bunch collectibles are hot-ticket items today. The ones listed here are one of a kind — and you may even be able to find them at a thrift store or garage sale.
10. Brady Bunch Board Game
Bottom line: There are later-era Brady board games, but don't be fooled — this is the original from 1973.
They don't come up often, particularly with all the pieces intact. When they do, however, they can fetch a pretty penny. So, if you find one at an estate sale or flea market, make sure to pick it up!
9. Set-Design Sketches
Bottom line: This was a one-of-a-kind item that appeared on eBay in September 2022. It was purchased from the estate of the art director who had worked on numerous TV shows in the 1960s and '70s, one of which was the "The Brady Bunch Variety Hour."
The packet featured several sketches of stage, backdrop and pool designs for the 1977 show as well as title cards with the names of the Brady family actors.
8. Cast Autographed Photo
Bottom line: Brady autographs are worth money, and of course, the more cast members you have, the more valuable your item is.
This photo features every cast member, with the exception of Florence Henderson and Ann B. Davis.
7. Brady Bunch Lunch Box
Bottom line: A lunch box from a favorite TV show was the hot item for Boomer and Gen-X kids to carry to school. Today, some of these classic lunch boxes can fetch well into the thousands.
A Brady Bunch lunch box with a tableau of Mike and Carol blending their family (from the first season) is a hot seller on eBay. Having an intact thermos also drives up the value.
6. Mike Brady's Wedding Band
Bottom line: Yet another amazing one-of-a-kind item! Robert Reed (Mike Brady) wore this 18k gold-plated wedding band throughout the series run.
It shows considerable wear and tear (he wore it for six seasons), but it came with a notarized certificate of authenticity from Karen Baldwin, Reed's daughter.
5. A Brady Bunch Card Set
Bottom line: The Brady Bunch Topps card line from 1969 featured 88 cards with scenes from the series on one side and pieces of a larger image of the Brady family on the back, which you would put together like a puzzle.
Getting one of these sets with a complete number of cards is quite rare, hence the sale price.
4. A Signed Cap by the Cast
Bottom line: At the end of the series in 1974, a camera operator received this cap, which he promptly had the cast sign.
All the Brady kids, Carol and Mike, Alice and even Cousin Oliver signed the cap, as did a few crew members.
3. Alice's Maid Uniform
Bottom line: Worn by Ann B. Davis throughout the series, this maid outfit is iconic and was seen on her character in most episodes. The double-breasted dress has a small collar and cuffed sleeves. It features hip slash pockets, which Alice often had her hands in (when she wasn't working in the kitchen, anyway.)
The costume came complete with a white cotton apron and a certificate of authenticity from the Eastern Costume Company.
2. Brady Bunch Shooting Scripts
Bottom line: In 2019, one lucky buyer bought 22 shooting scripts from the original series and one from the spin-off, "The Brady Brides."
At least one script is signed by series writer Elroy Schwartz (it was his personal copy). The scripts' pages are in various colors (to show parts were corrected as they went) and also include handwritten notes.
1. The Brady Bunch House
Value: $3.5 million
Bottom line:The Brady Bunch house is the ultimate collectible, and when it came up for sale in 2019 and was originally listed at $1.8 million, a bidding war ensued. Lance Bass of NSYNC wanted the house but was outbid by the HGTV network for the purchase.
After HGTV bought it, they reconstructed it to look like the residence we've all seen on TV for their series, "A Very Brady Renovation."
Producers originally used a house in Studio City, California, as the home's exterior-establishing shot, but the interiors were originally constructed on a soundstage. Today, the outside matches the inside, down to a whole new second floor.
