Yep; that was the original price at Wrigley Field back in 1932 for the game program of what would be named the Superbowl years later! NFL championship games weren’t called the Superbowl until 1970.
Rick is giving Corey some freedom as he wants to give him more experience.
They shake on $2750 as the seller was pleased but Rick thinks that he paid way too much for this burnt program!
The old man agrees as he calls it a 2700 dollar mistake but Corey thinks that the value is there.
Corey ends up going to Jeremy who has some interesting history on this particular game at Wrigley Field. Jeremy does say that the market is very limited this is the “Holy Grail” of football programs and he wouldn’t be surpriised if they would get 10 grand for it from a collector because of all the history.
Corey later gets gets apologies from both the old man and Rick as he rubs it in their face telling them that there’s only a few in existence with one of them being in the Hall of Fame!
Well he doesn’t kill himself riding the Schwinn Twinn around in the Pawn Shop.
Don the seller hopes to get 300 bucks for this 1952 bike. Chumlee notes that as unique as this bike is, the door isn’t being broken down by people looking for a twinn bike. Because the condition is good, he offers 40 bucks and then goes to 60 but Don wasn’t thrilled with the offer so; No Deal
We’ve all seen TV shows where a bank robber winds up with a stack of money with dye built into which explodes when you unwrap it. Well a stack of 10’s with dye makes it way into the Pawn Shop. Rick isn’t sure how to handle it as he’s not sure that it would be legal to own, buy or sell.
They are legal to own.
Fumes from the exploding dyepack are also toxic.
The owner now wants $473 but quickly agrees on $175 and they have a deal.
In 1847 prepaid stamps were first introduced because paying the postman upon delivery got too time consuming.
Dwight D. Eisenhower 34th U.S. President, lived 1890 – 1969
Fred the owner said that his dad was a postal worker way back when postage was 8 cents and has had these in the family ever since. He’s hoping to get $800 – $1000 per stamp and he’s got an entire book (2$ face value) of these misprinted and miscut stamps!
The worlds most expensive stamp is an 1855 Swedish stamp printed on the wrong color paper. It sold for $2.3 million in 1996! But what are these worth?
Rick is clueless what they may be worth so he calls in Jay an expert who finds a total of 5 unique errors. Jay claims that these are pretty rare and would have a value of about 500 to 700 bucks. But that’s retail and would leave no room for the pawn stars to profit. Rick and Fred ultimately agree on $425 and the sale takes place.
Often made with multiple barrels due to long reload time
Deann, the owner thinks it’s neat because of the engraving but admits that she has no idea what it’s value is. Rick gives instruction on using it as he points out everything broken on the gun. He is still interested because it’s so unusual but needs to check on repair costs as well as what it may be worth when fixed.
Jemison, an antique arms expert puts the value at 700 to a grand and adds that it wouldn’t be worth fixing. A Flintstock pistol in great condition may be worth only a few grand. A new one probably cost a few pounds of silver way back when in England.
Rick offers 5 bills but the seller balks; she did state that it was in the family for multiple generations. After Corey reminds Rick that they end up selling all old guns and they have none at the moment, it results in a deal at $600.
Just some more reality that shows one of the ways that the pawn stars lose money in the pawn shop.
Rick finally has a buyer for a vase that he bought a year ago but finds it broken. This thing was like 200 years old! After nobody in the shop admits to breaking it, Rick is determined to get to the bottom of it. The vase was in a carton in the back room being prepared to ship out. and now it’s a carton of broken glass.
Rick and Travis watch a security video which you can see below
Chumlee is swinging around the Klingon sword that they just bought. Oops, he hits the box with the vaze as if he’s playing baseball. He’s caught red handed and the show ends with him still denying it!!!
Afew days later while on the Tonight Show, Chumlee sticks with denial!
