Richard Harrison of Pawn Stars died at 77. I was a fan of that show in the early years. Not ashamed to say; I've enjoyed much dumber things than that.

I don't know much about Old Man, but I have a buddy who is an expert. Let me call him and see if he can stop by.

I thought the OP was talking about his own father.

I watch the show and am always amazed at how they rip people off.

it’s worth $500, but our “expert” says its worth $100, so we’ll give you $45 for it cause we are talking ALL the risk...

Yeah, cough, cough, so much risk, I’m sure they also make at least $50k per episode, so they don’t have to rip people off..,

RIP Old Man...

What the guys who are on the show make has nothing to do with running the business and making that work. Just because something has a value doesn't mean that someone is going to come in looking to buy it.

From what I hear, most of the show is fake, at least with regards to the big ticket items.

Yeah its not even a real pawn shop on the show its a fake set. And if you go to the actually store front its a tourist attraction and you cant buy almost anything from the tv show

It's not all fake, I'm pretty sure Chumley is every bit as dumb as he seems to be...

And the old man knew it...!
