Who should Pawn Stars bring in for your “rare gem”?


Recommended Posts

Member · Posted

Just a fun hypothetical..

Suppose you wanted to sell/hype/price-pump your rarest and most expensive game that you have. You decide to bring it to Pawn Stars to get some exposure. The game you have isn’t graded over at WATA, and they’re unlikely to be the best people to evaluate a price for your chosen game.

So...who would you prefer for Pawn Stars to come on to “price guess” for your game valuation?

My coolest stuff is all homebrew.  So I'd go with our resident brew authority @Ferris Bueller.

Good choice. He can valuate for the loose/CIB N64 games and sealed Japanese Dreamcast games. 

Except if fcgamer is the seller, then OptOut needs to make way for someone else to valuate. Can’t trust those 2 if they come together on Pawn Stars..

To fit in with the Pawn Stars / WATA / HA way of doing business, my best friend who actually owns a 50% share in the game. This will be disclosed in the end credits, in 4pt font that scrolls off the screen in half a second.

They'd call Pat and he'd look it up in his book.

The CD resurfacing guy?  
 

The only thing I have that don’t know the value of is...well I don’t even know who I’d ask.  I saw @PapaStu is on here.  He’s one of only two names I’ve ever seen actually discussing these things and that was some really old threads.  (The other being Dangerboy) Pretty sure it’s a let the auction figure it out sort of thing and the magic number is probably like $20.  Never see the damn things but I have no idea who else is collecting this stuff.  All I ever hear is crickets.  Which is why I need a pure bullshit hype man.  Wait?  Can I just use WATA guy?

edit (a bit less silly):

If I was picking someone active here I’d probably go with someone like @TDIRunner.  He seems to have that same PlayStation sickness I had for a while 😝.  Ive seen his posts/thoughts on PlayStation collecting for a long time now.

Yeah, I'd bring in a buddy from here at VGS and they could inflate my game so it could be pimped out on TV before heading to the Bay.

This is the rare Sesame Street ABC/123 cart - see it has BOTH games on it, a rarity for the time, discounting of course those disgusting bootleg carts which had upwards of 100 games in them. I'd value this, cart-only as it is, around 100k. In fact I know a guy who'd jump on that right now.

I would like Gloves to appraise my  cib Perfect Dark. I envision a hot pink pair of gloves with left bros leopard print. You only see the gloves in the scene. And the awesome gloves slap the camera at the end of the appraisal and it cuts to Michael Jordan dunking a basketball. I'm gonna be a millionaire.

Actually VGS has an upcoming game valuation service in the works; if you ever appear on Pawn Stars just hit me up and I'll come down.

Please let @CasualCart be designing the most ludicrous grading cards ever seen by mankind. I definitely didn't purposely shout him out to give us a preview 🤩

As much as I respect you gloves I don't think you could valuate what I would like to bring on the show.... In fact there's probably no one who could

@RpgCollector  and/or @JVOSS.  They can go on and on about rare and "important" GB variants.

"This is a very common game, but this variant is extremely rare.  Only 5 are known to exist.  It's more rare than a first run SMB1 for the NES."

@RH, @Splain, @RpgCollector  are the master minds for GB and @fcgamer, @OptOut are the master minds behind the Asian gb

I'm willing to pay real American Dollars for this level of clout. Can you guys take a full NES set all at once? Also, do you take literal sacks of pennies and metaphorical sacks of DOGE?

I’d love to be on the show actually.

Share some NES info, and get dunked on by angry game collectors for disappointing their numbers.

But, I don’t know if it’s possible since I’m a bit too friendly towards WATA...then again Deniz himself is on the show 🤷🏻‍♂️
