The first customer came in with a hand cannon for sale. The guy inherited it from his grandfather. Rick informed the guy that it was a novelty cannon manufactured in the last 20 years. Because it was a muzzleloader, Rick is permitted to buy it. The guy wanted $500, but Rick offered $75. Rick went up to $125 so he could see Chumlee shoot it. Chumlee was infatuated with the hand cannon and he bet Rick he could hit a coffee mug from 20 feet. Chumlee went the firing rang and was able to hit the coffee mug from 20 feet. Rick was shocked, but Chum called it “Chumenomics”.
A man came in to sell a vehicle from a movie. It was a 3-wheel taxi from the movie “Freejack”. The 1992 movie was a Sci-fi movie depicting a messed up futuristic setting. The movie was not successful at the box office. Rick called his car expert to check out the mechanics of the vehicle. Danny came in to check out the car and he actually was very familiar with the movie. The vehicle was in very good shape and Danny took it for a spin with Rick on the back. Danny was not impressed with the ride of the vehicle and the functionality. Danny said $5,000 would be the top dollar for the vehicle. The guy was upset with the estimate and Rick’s firm $4,000 offer. The guy had to pass on the offer and no deal was made.
Trivia of the Show: In what type of establishment did The Beatles perform before hitting it big? (Answer below)
The next guy had a 1961 Willie Mays San Francisco Giants uniform for sale. The “Say hey kid” Willie Mays was one of the greatest baseball players of all time. The jersey was in amazing condition (almost too good). Mays was known for his aggressive play and diving or sliding for fly balls or on the base pads, so the spotless uniform was probably not game worn. The guy had no paper work, but -wanted $25,000 for the piece of cloth and a story. Corey called an expert in to check out the piece to check the authenticity. The expert came in to rip off facts about how great Mays was and maybe the customer too. The expert confirmed the jersey was issues to Willie Mays, but probably was not game worn. The value was still estimated at $35,000-40,000. The customer was thrilled with the expert’s opinion. Corey started very low at $20,000 and nudged up to a top price of $25,000. The guy smartly decided to not sell the uniform, then Corey shot to $30,000 out of nowhere. The customer finally won a negotiation and got out of there with $31,000 for the uniform.
A return customer came in with a concert poster for The Beatles. It was from the last official concert for the Beatles. The concert was in 1966 at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. Corey offered $800, but the guy countered with $2,000. They made the deal for $1,500 after a relatively civil negotiation.
