[quote:Anonymous Coward 22049841:MV85Njg4MzVfMzI4NTc3OTRfRDM5MTBCMzQ=] Its all about the money, as more and more "reality" shows are. Money Money Money Money. I bought low and sold high. I get it, but as a collector and enthusiast of nostalgia, Its not, nor ever has been about the money for me. I am sorry it has degraded to that. Also, taken at face value, I see a huge difference between pawnstars and pickers. Pawn star customers bring the item in, are given a fair (or somewhat fair)estimate of its value and sell or not. Pickers invade a persons home, and almost always have to undercut them, when they would even usually make money at the asking price. Boy I wish I could buy some of that stuff at the prices they get it for. Also, why would you go somewhere and buy for example one sign in a room of signs, when they all could be sold for a profit? Its allot of BS if you ask me. Taking advantage of old people for the money. They say they "collect" this or that, but they dont, they just flip things. Sorry for the rant. [/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
