Did anyone else see the 1909 Cy Young card that was on the new Pawn Stars last night? It was in terrible condition and they payed the guy $300 for it. I wouldnt pay over $200 for it for my own collection.

Well the guy who came in after the fact told him he paid too much. Said it was probably in the $200-$250 range.

I'm pretty sure that the script called for Rick to overpay for it.

Yeah I've seen that a few times, (him overpaying for stuff)
one time he bought 100 comics that I couldn't get 10 cents
for each, for around 80.00.

Then other times I see him getting a rip.


Great show though.

Good for you.

<< script >>



Key Word Here, isn't even Real anymore, paid people to bring in stuff with an occasional random item thrown in. Items are found through Want Ads, ect. Ration 1 out of every 20 Rick overpays to show his human side (Makes mistakes).

Reality TV is turning into Scripted Crap, wait till the Shi$$ hits the fan over this in the next year or two!

YeeHah

I saw that episode. TO be honest, if someone sells something like that at a pan shop, they have to know they are not getting top $$ for their item. I think Rick ended up paying $90K for that guitar, and I bet he usually gets more profit than that (percentage wise) per transaction.

Earlier this week I put a few off grade American Caramel common HOFers in my eBay store (Tinker, Bresnahan, etcc)...I had 2 different people e-mail me asking if by chance I had an off-grade Cy Young from the set (which I didn't)...I thought it kind of stange at first, but once I saw the episode 2 days later, I wasn't surprised.
