[quote:Lindsay 7451624:MV85Njg4MzVfMjg3MDcxOTFfRjYxQUUxN0M=] I've been buying and selling on eBay for more than a decade, and now that I know the value of my specialties, I sell on etsy for a fixed price. Believe me, I am a fan of buying low and selling high, but when I finally watched my first episode of American Pickers last night, I was appalled. Those guys took complete advantage of people, lowballing them shamefully, pressuring them to take the price, and rubbing their hands in glee when they successfully hoodwinked someone out of an incredibly rare item. At least on eBay, an item sells at auction in a fair bidding process. Further enraging me were the graphics on the screen when the pickers estimated what they would sell the item for. Those profit numbers were clearly lowballed so that the pickers wouldn't look like the thieves they are. I've always hated the venal dealers I occasionally run into a rummage sales and such, always trying to score a huge bargain at someone else's expense. And that's exactly what these pickers are - venal. [/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
