    Pawn Stars

    On the show tonight Rick bought a book signed by Shoeless Joe Jackson. I think it will be interested to see if its real, signed by his wife or a fake.

    i saw the preview of that.

    i was watching the show "card boys" or "locker boys" or something like that, its a sports memorabilia shop, and these guys that run the place, go out and buy memorabilia, or someone will bring something in and sell it to them.
    needless to say, they like to have authenticatin, so of course, they end up calling in "their" specialists, lol.
    somone brought in a glove with shoeless joes signature. they were all excited about it, until the guy they called said it was probably his wife, as joe didn't sign much stuff. the specialist said yes, he was able to sign his name, unlike the story of just an X, but he rarely did sign anything, usually had his wife do that for him.

    Did he not call in one of his fifty "experts" to look at it?? I think it would be crazy to buy something like that without having it looked at. How much did he buy it for?

    From the promo he did not have it checked out first. Will find out tonight what he paid for it and what his expert says.

    No expert opinion. Paid $13k. Judged to be a fake by what appeared to be PSA and also his book expert after the fact.

    What I like about the show is they have a lot of rare items on the show. They had a Civil War Savage navy pistol that I have heard about but never seen. They do a pretty good job of telling the history and the pros and cons about the items they show.

    That a lot of money to pay for it without having an expert look at it. Best regards, David

    Yeah the Jackson turned out to be fake, and you could tell when their book expert had a pic of the few authenticated Jackson authentic sigs, it wasn't even close. Kinda like the "autographed" Lou Gehrig jersey from a couple years ago. Autograph Collector magazine had a blurb on that and there was no way that was real.

    I like Pawn Stars, but the show is staged. From what i've heard, the guys don't even work there.

    Yeah, I saw the promo for it, and could tell when I saw the sig on the promo it wasn't real. Same thing with the Gehrig sig on the jersey. Their expert said it was real...oooooooooooh, I don't think so!
    Happy Collecting!

    All things you could read about in your local library without having to watch a ridiculous fake, scripted, staged, set-up show where the 'stars" are told what to say about everything. Watch any interview with any of these guys and you'll realize that none of them are capable of spouting off the info they do on the show without massive prompting from off-camera.

    Yeah, BUT it's still fun to watch sometimes. Kind of like watching a movie or wrestling. You suspend your disbelief and enjoy it for what it is. Even if the people on the show are just reading off a script it can still be informative and entertaining.

    I once worked with a woman that was a native Korean. One day she brought in some homemade kimchi and I asked her how long she had it buried in her backyard. The way I knew that the traditional way to make it was to put it into a clay pot and bury it was from watching MASH. She was dumbfounded that I knew that but I couldn't bring myself to tell her how I knew.

    I say relax and enjoy the show !
    Ripken wants:
    01 Leaf R&S Statistical Standouts gu on deck circle - Any besides solid white
    05 UD Baseball Heroes jerseys, bronze #11, emerald 11 & 14
    06 UD Epic Materials jerseys, green #CR1, dark green CR2, grey CR1 & 3, gold CR1 & 2

    07 spx iron man quad gu /25, need 30.
    If you have any please lmk even if in your pc as I have dupes to trade, plus some 1/1's, and will trade in your favor

    Wrestling nowadays freely admits it's fake & scripted. Movies are acting, no one mistakes a movie for reality. The issue I have with most "reality" shows is that they are as far from reality as can be. And a lot of folks buy into it- look at this thread- someone actually thinks a Joe Jackson autograph walked into a pawn shop WHILE they were filming a TV show and the owners snapped it up & took a major loss. Seriously? It didn't happen, it was all staged because it makes good TV and gets people talking about it the next day.
    Why do I think it's fake? Because seeing these guys on Jay Leno one night led me to believe that between the 3 of them, they couldn't pass the SATs, yet there they are on the show spouting off ridiculously detailed info on random items that magically "arrive at the shop". One episode featured a guy wanting to sell a 1960 Les Paul guitar. That guy used to be in some famous bands. He now works at a guitar shop in Vegas called Cowtown guitars. Rick called for an "expert" to assess the guitar. Who came? Another employee from Cowtown guitars. Don't believe me? Check the Cowtown website, they'll tell you the truth.
