Beanie Babies were the most ubiquitous collector's toy in the 1990s, so it's no surprise that the majority of the plush animals are completely worthless today.

But limited editions, tag misprints and more unique features still abound -- and can be worth a small fortune. The ultra-rare Princess Diana Beanie Baby, for example, is appraised at $90,000.

While only a few Princess Diana Beanie Babies exist, one common edition, Valentino, can actually be worth up to $25,000 ... But there's a catch.

With its faded white body and embroidered red heart, Valentino is one of the most well-known and classic Beanie Babies. While the average Valentino is not incredibly valuable, a misprint on the iconic TY tag can up its value considerably and is seriously coveted by collectors today.

The most valuable Valentino bears boast the following features, but any combination of the below will still fetch a good amount of money.
