[quote:Anonymous Coward 897441:MV85Njg4MzVfMTU2MzU3MjdfMzFBREU2RUQ=] [quote:shaggy 897360] You dumb liberal fucks, they usually ask what the people want for the stuff. Ever hear one mans trash is another mans treasure? You dumb fucks need to actually learn how to earn some money and get off the government teat. [/quote] That's part of the game, always ask what they want first. If not you may have end up paying more for it. You never want to make an offer first, because they might offer you a way lower price. Watch Pawn Stars close and you will see they have it down to a science. "What do you want for your old Edison phonograph?" "I need $600, look at all the old wax cyliders that come with it." "No way I can do that, man, I can give you $50. People just want to display this, and will never play it. To be honest with you I'll be lucky to sell it within the year, and it will just be sitting here on the shelf." "But the expert said it was worth 1 million dollars." "That's at auction dude, and we would have to clean it up and pay an auctioneer. Last time we had one of these we made like ten bucks on it." An aside with Rick; "Now that I know this is real I really want this in my shop, but I have to get it at the right price. Since this guy didn't know to take this to a phonograph collector I know I can get it cheap." "Will you give me $550.?" "No dude, now your breakin my balls. I'll take a chance and give you $75 just because I like you." "Well, OK. I did find this in my basement and it's $75 more than when I came in here." "OK, lets go in back and do the paperwork." This is how it's done, and I don't blame Pawn Stars or Pickers for it, but these people pawning things are retards that don't know what they are doing. I do feel for some of the older folks that the Pickers take advantage of, but I think they get a check from the TV producers when the release form is signed. [/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
