The Key to Signature Colors
One famous way to tell if the doll was a real Cabbage Patch doll or not was if it had the creator, Xavier Roberts, name signed on it's bum. ( I remember being in 3rd grade and one of my friends telling me that another little girl got a real Cabbage Patch doll and to our great shock "...it had a tattoo on it's butt!" ) These signatures tell more than that the doll is real, however, by color, they signify the year the doll was made.
If the doll is signed in BLACK it was made in the first year, 1983
