[quote:nater 10310126:MV85Njg4MzVfMjk0OTkzMzlfQ0M4NjM5RjI=] I think you people are wrong. American Pickers run a business, they pay people a fair price so that they can still make money off the things they buy and transport. They can't pay retail price on these items. They pay about half what they can make on the item. Then, there are people out there who don't know what to do with stuff they've inherited and it will most likely go to auction fetching only a dollar for items that the pickers are paying $75 for. If you actually watch the show, you'll see that when someone says you can buy that for 10 bucks, Mike will say, well actually it's worth more than that, I'll be honest with you. And then will give them a fair price. You guys are acting pretty violent for posting on a "godlike" page. I'm not much of a religious person, but I have morals and ethics. And saying things like 'I'd like work out a deal with them, i.e. to beat up the american pickers guys for robbing old people' is a pretty immoral thing to say. When in fact they're giving these "old people" some money to buy meds or other old people things. Think before you go ranting. There are much worse things in the world that deserve your attention. Like world hunger or terrorists. [/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
