’67 Topps Pete Rose On Pawn Stars

One of my favorite T.V. shows to watch is Pawn Stars, which you can find on the History Channel, Monday nights at 10:00 p.m.  I find it really entertaining and educational.  Last week a guy walked into the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop and tried to sell five Pete Rose 1967 Topps baseball cards.  As soon as I saw these things I knew they weren’t real.  The guy who brought them in was pretty upset when he couldn’t sell them.  After this show aired last week, it sparked some interesting conversations over on FCB and other sports card forums.

  1. Hey man, I love this show! My dad and I watch it every week, and while we were watching this. As soon as he slapped ALL those perfect Roses on the counter I pointed at the screen and said “fakes” to my dad.

  2. I’ve heard this store in Vegas is now packed every day. Apparently a ton of tourists just come in to see the guys and not buy anything. They end up having to kick people out so they can actually do work. Price of fame and a reality show I guess..

  3. I saw that show a while back . Even if those cards were real the way he was handling them the corners are dinged by now and their value is low end. You can buy that card on e-bay for 10 to 20 bucks on e-bay. I buy & sell daily . When looking up “book value” on a card graded condition is most important. Some people look-up a card and see a Gem Mint 10 card is worth 100.00 and think they’re all worth 100.00.
