Woody Bears were all Robert Raikes Originals. These bears were hand carved, signed, dated and numbered by Raikes himself. Some also had the additional signature in permanent marker.
Woody bears were produced prior to and in conjuctions with the edition models that were later produced by Applause.
Joey is in excellent condition, his bow is a bit frayed on the ends. If this bear had one of the Woody Bears COA, I could not find it, nor any information as to whether he ever had one.
The bear comes from a smoke free home.
