[quote:Anonymous Coward 3006951:MV85Njg4MzVfMjkzNzI1NDNfMTJBQjMzNDE=] Not sure what episode or incident you are speaking of, but I just watched the show and witnessed Mike and Frank do an extremely noble thing. They had purchased two large carnival paintings for a few hundred dollars from an amusement park owner. The Pickers then sold the two paintings for $10,000, and returned to the original buyer and gave him half of their profits. This doesn't sound like someone trying to take advantage of anyone. In the same episode, they asked another seller what he would sell an item for. He told them $200. Mike told him it was worth more than that and paid him $500. You have to remember that television producers edit, edit, edit their taping. What you see in the final show is not exactly what took place, because it makes "good tv" and evokes emotional reactions. So much has been edited out that it can change the context of what really took place. [/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
