In the latest episode of Better Call Saul, Jimmy made a nice paycheck thanks to the Hummel figurine he stole. How much are these actually worth?

The fourth season of Better Call Saul has been keeping viewers on the edge of their seats! We’re curious to see where Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) is headed and worried sick about what will happen to Nacho (Michael Mando). Now, Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) is incredibly bored at his new job… and we all know he doesn’t handle boredom well. His mind is churning about what to do next!

Let’s also not forget about Mike (Jonathan Banks). So far on the series, Mike is the only one who hasn’t shown Gus (Giancarlo Esposito) any fear. Other than Don Hector, of course. Let’s put all those intense plots aside for a minute, though, and discuss a less important mystery — the Hummel figurines.

Jimmy was expecting to make a share of only a few thousand dollars from the figurine he stole. However, when he showed up to collect his share, while no numbers were said or seen, Jimmy was surprised by the amount. How much are these worth? Are we missing out on a gold mine?

Check out Antique HQ for all the details on prices, suggested retail, and more! First of all, don’t get any funny ideas! We’re talking about legally collecting Hummel’s. And while these cute little pieces of decoration can be worth over a thousand dollars, a few reaching over three thousand, it’s not easy to sell them.

You have to know your stuff and have at least some knowledge about collectibles and bidding sites. But wait, there’s more!

In our search, we came across this Reddit theory — is there a meaning behind Hummel figurines in the series? VenunsianArtist on Reddit believes Hummel’s symbolize “purity and morality,” here’s part of the post:

"“The Hummel figurine is the third appearance of such a thing on the BB universe. The first was when Marie stole one, in the episode “Open House”. The second was in “Alpine Shepherd Boy”, when Jimmy organizes a bunch of these things into the will of Mrs. Strauss.When Mary’s kleptomania relapsed, her stealing the thing signaled that she had lost moral restraint and given in to her instincts. Same with Jimmy. He had the opportunity to steal a whole bunch of them from Mrs. Strauss, but didn’t. He was at a good phase, trying to make a legitimate career for himself."
