[quote:Anonymous Coward 1482193:MV85Njg4MzVfMjY5Njg4MzZfMjA1NjU4MDE=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 1543903:MV85Njg4MzVfMjY5NjU5MjBfMjM4NjdFOUY=] I'm an Auctioneer and the saying goes "It's only worth what someones willing to pay at the time of sale" To all the bashers on this thread...here is a novel idea, If you think they are "buying Low & selling High"...why not "put up or shut up"....get into this biz, and "go picking" and pay the "sheeple" what you think is a "Fair" price.... If not, STFU and get of the "Pickers" backs! [/quote] Yes, this. I am a picker. Sometimes we don't even know what an item will bring. It's really a guessing game at best. Sometimes we win, sometimes we loose. If you think about our overhead to get these items, and to sell them, our profit does not seems so good. Grandpa with the old rusty motor bike could never find a retail buyer for that item, so he is selling wholesale to a picker who has spent years to locate those collectors willing to make the purchase. Business is business, and this one is fair. [/quote]
I can NOT believe that the HISTORY channel would show such a disgrace to our older generation. TO think for one minute this would somehow be cleared to air is appalling. To brag or somehow boast about an unsolicited visit to Leland's farm and the price paid versus the actual value should be illegal. If this would have been my granddad I would have felt robbed of my family heirloom and treasures. The History Channel should immediately cancel this show!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were so looking forward to a new show that was really about hidden treasures in American not thievery we couldn't even finish the show.
These guys are scum bags !!!!! Nice job History Channel way to promote thieves . I would love to meet these guys face to face , and work a deal out with them. If you know what I mean ! And my parents always told me crime doesn't pay, unless you make a show for the History Channel .Way to teach kids its ok to steal from the older generation. History Channel you should make things right pay these people fair price for their stuff, and fire these dirt bags
