Pawn Stars: 5 Most Expensive Items from Season 11 | History


– How in the hell did you
get this through my door? Whoa. That is amazing. These can go for a lot of money. I own a really expensive book. I would have sold it
for less than $50,000. COREY: What do we have
here, and how in the hell did you get this
through my door? Very carefully. I came down to the
pawn shop today to sell my pinball machine. It’s a 1972 Williams Line
Drive Baseball pinball machine. I used to be a pinball wizard. But I’m just too old now. This is a rare find. The big feature on it is it’s
got this animated back glass where the players– as you score runs, they
will actually physically get up and run around the bases. OK. These old pinball
machines are really cool, and the market’s
pretty good for them. If I can get this
for the right price, I should have no
problem selling it. What are you looking
to get out of it? $5,500. COREY: $5,500? That’s a good deal
based on this condition. I just kind of feel
like that’s probably what I’ll get out of it. I’m gonna have to resell it. I gotta make money. I’ll– I’ll do $3,500. What would you say the $4,000? $3,750. You got a deal.
COREY: Deal? All right.
Cool. Thank you, sir. I paid $800 for it. I’m thrilled with $3,750. RICK: Hey. How can I help you? SEAN: Coming here
to sell a couple of my Norman Rockwell prints. “The Little Spooners.” RICK: This one’s
definitely cool. SEAN: I came down
to the pawn shop today to sell my Norman
Rockwell lithographs. The least I would take would
be probably $5,000 apiece. The other print we
have is “Dressing Up.” And there was only
60 of these made. RICK: I mean, this
is really neat. These can go for a lot of money. When people mention
American artists, one of the very first
people they think of is Norman Rockwell. No one expressed American
culture like him. Now, the big question is how
much do you want for these? $8,000 apiece. All right. Let me get someone down
here to take a look at them. I just need his
advice, all right? SEAN: Sounds good. Pretty cool. What do you think? BRETT MALY: Yeah,
this is fantastic. This is actually one
of Norman Rockwell’s quintessential images. I mean, you see this
one on everything from calendars to mouse pads. And this work was a cover of
the “Saturday Evening Post.” It’s one that he’s
really renowned for. RICK: So the big thing– what
do you think they’re worth? BRETT MALY: “Dressing Up” is
not going to have the value of “The Little Spooners.” I can’t see a value on this
more than about $1,000, $1,500. “The Little Spooners”–
this one I could see in the $8,000, $9,000 range. RICK: OK. So what’s your
best price on them? I think I’d like to
hang on to “Dressing Up.” “The Little Spooners”–
how about $8,000? I’d give you,
like, $4,500 for it. How about $7,000? I’ll tell you
what, I’ll go $4,800. Could you go $5,500? I’ll go $5,000. All right. I’ll take $5,000. All right. Sweet. Just follow me up. SEAN: He needs to resell
them and make a profit. So I’m happy with it. [CHA-CHING] So what do we got? My Ultra4 race car. COREY: It’s kind of like a
hybrid between a Trophy Truck and a Rock Crawler, right? BILL: Yep. [TIRES SCREECH] To race Ultra4 competitively,
you’d better spend a lot of money and a lot of time. You can’t have another hobby. RICK (VOICEOVER): Top
speed in it– what’s that? 100 miles an hour. You want to show me? Absolutely. Once they see this car
going, they’re gonna want it. CHUMLEE: Whoa. Woo! Awesome. COREY: This thing
is pretty bad ass. I could see having a lot
of fun with this thing. We both know once
you build this stuff, you never get your
money out of it. BILL: That’s why I’m
only asking $50,000. I’ll do $20,000. Could you do $42,000? $25,000. That’s– that’s– If I pull my lights, my nav– Nope.
BRETT MALY: –and my comm– Nope. I’m taking it all. $25,000. How about $27,000, and
I throw in the trailer? We can do that.
All right. It’s a deal. Thanks. CHUMLEE: Dude,
when are we taking this thing out in the desert? Like I’d let you drive this. [CHA-CHING] RICK: Hey, Bernie. How’s it going? BERNIE: How are you, Rick? Can’t wait to see this stuff. BERNIE: This is it– the Mouse House. RICK: Whoa. BERNIE: I’ve been collecting
Mickey Mouse and Disney things since about 1968– before it was pop chic. RICK: You are looking to
sell some stuff, right? BERNIE: Well, I’ve
got a couple pieces that I can show you that I think
you’d find rather interesting. Come here. Let me show you. I have probably the
largest accumulation of what they called Old
King Cole store displays. This is a Mickey, Donald,
and another Mickey. RICK: Amazing. BERNIE: They were made by a
company called Old King Cole. There were very few made. And very few survived. RICK (VOICEOVER): I want
these store displays. I’m a closet Disney freak. This is stuff that will
never come my way again. I need to have this. So how much were you
looking to get out of these? I need $15,000 on the
Donald, $25,000 for the pair. And this one over here– $12,000. So if I took them all? $35,000, Rick. Would you go $30,000? BERNIE: You’re gonna
negotiate with me? RICK: Can we meet in the middle? BERNIE: That would be
$32,500, wouldn’t it? RICK: Yeah. Congratulations. You made yourself
a hell of a buy. RICK (VOICEOVER):
I’m absolutely giddy. Let’s go look at
some other stuff. All right.
RICK: [LAUGHS] Hey, how’s it going? MAN: Pretty good. This is “The Treaty of Amity,
Commerce, and Navigation,” otherwise known
as “Jay’s Treaty.” This is Thomas
Jefferson’s personal copy. Whoa. “Jay’s Treaty” was a very
unpopular piece of legislation. But it was really
significant because it was our first major treaty
with another country. So if this book actually
belonged to Thomas Jefferson, we’re talking a lot of money. This is super exciting. I’m assuming you
want to sell it? Is that why you’re here?
MAN: Yes. Yes.
– OK. And how much are you
looking to get out of it? I’m looking for $75,000. OK. I’m gonna call a friend of mine. I think he’ll actually pee
himself over this thing. MAN: OK. [LAUGHS] MAN: If he expresses an
opinion with which I disagree, I won’t hesitate to
set him straight. [VOCALIZING] If this is what
you said it is, I’m gonna be a very
excited person. Jefferson had a secret
way of marking his books. He would put a T– his first initial, T– in front of the I page. That is what they
should look like there. That is an awesome piece
of American history. RICK: Now, the big
question is what do you think this would go for? BOOK EXPERT: If I were offering
this to one of my good clients, I’d probably put a
price of $75,000 on it. So– OK. What’s your best price? Well, $75,000 is
my asking price. I’m a buyer at $40,000. I know that seems a big
stretch from $75,000. MAN: I could take
it down to $60,000. RICK: I will go
$47,000, and I am– I am skittish at that. $50,000. That’s it. Let me have it for $48,000. I– you know, I– MAN: It’s got to be $50,000. It’s got to be $50,000. RICK: Oh, my god. I cannot– I cannot
go below $50,000. Deal. Sold. I’m very pleased to have
gotten $50,000 for it. I would have sold it
for less than 50 grand.
