- Hey, boss?


Looks like we got the world's first Game Boy.

First off, what's a Game Boy?

Uh-- Chum can explain it.

MATT: I decided to come to the pawn shop

today to try and sell my ancient pinball machine.

My dad gave it to me as a housewarming

present when I bought my place.

I should see it selling for at least five grand,

and that's what I intend to walk out with.

RETAILER: What can you tell me about this?

MATT: 1933, original pinball machine.

RETAILER: 1833 to 1933--

a century of progress.

This was made to commemorate the 1934 World's Fair,

which was held in Chicago.

The World's Fair is where they used to show all the new

and important inventions.

I guess they still have 'em, but nobody cares anymore.

About anything.

Tell me how it works.

Runs off pennies.

You hit the bottom lever, shoots a ball in.

Pull the top one back, swings one around.

As it drops in this square here.

puzzle pieces flip.

You get 10 tries, 10 balls in the game.

Object of the game, get the entire puzzle to show up.

So it is broke a little, because that one

didn't come up.

MATT: It's got its character antique flaws.

This don't look like a pinball machine.

It don't have the flappers.

It shouldn't have any flappers on it, because flappers

didn't come out until the '50s.


CHUM: You didn't know that?


Most of the time, Chum is a couple

fries short of a happy meal.

But he does know a few things about these old pinball

machines, and I hate to admit it.

What type of price are you talking about?

Five grand.

Ain't no way.

MATT: This is a real rarity.

I've seen a few of these go for about $3,000

in top condition.

To a collector, this is considered fair, not perfect.

There's rust on the balls, and on the inside rails.

It also doesn't look like all the mechanics work right.

It's character.

RETAILER: Character's one thing, bottom line is another.

If you want it, you got $1,000.

If not, I really appreciate you bringing it in.

I gotta look for at least 25 for it.

You gotta come up for me a little.

RETAILER: Nope. Nope.



$1,000, son.

I think it's a bit of rubbish, but you know what?

Let's do it.

All right.

Thank you.

Chum, you want to do the paperwork?

Good job.

Chum earned his keep for a change,

but I'm sure he'll do something to piss me off

again before the day is over.

RETAILER: Hey, how's it going?

Hey, good.

How are you doing today, man?

I brought in a cow collar.


That was owned by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

So this was owned by Eisenhower?


And obviously, the cow wore it, and not him, right?

That's correct, yep.


I came to the pawn shop today to try

to sell my cow collar that was owned by President

Dwight D. Eisenhower.

It was given to him by the Press Corps.

I'm hoping to get 3,500, but I might go to 2,500.

RETAILER: Put it right here.

Presented to President Dwight D. Eisenhower

by these correspondents.

All right.

Seriously, how did you get Eisenhower's cow's necklace?

Well, I'm in the-- in the business

of buying antiques and collectibles, and a gentleman

sold this to me.

RETAILER: All right.

Everybody liked Ike.

I mean, he not only served two terms as the commander

in chief, he was also the five star general that

engineered the D-day invasion.

But I can honestly say this is one of the weirder items

that has come into the shop lately.

I'm intrigued.

I know Eisenhower was, like, a gentleman farmer,

and he had show cattle.

When he brought the cattle to different shows,

he never put it under his name, because being President

of the United States might give him

a little bit of an advantage.


RETAILER: Where in the world did you get this?

This came from the person that sold it to me,

and he obtained it from the Eisenhower Museum.

RETAILER: Presented to President Eisenhower on his birthday,

October 14th, 1954, by the men who

covered the Denver White House.


The question is, is how much do you want?

Well, I'd like 3,500, or 2 ounces of gold.

It's just weird.

Well, half the stuff in your store here is weird.

Yeah, I know, and a lot of that stuff is so weird,

it doesn't sell.

I'm afraid everyone's going to walk in here,

and they're gonna go, god, that is cool.

And they just turn around and walk away.

That's what they do in museums.

RETAILER: Well, this ain't a museum.

I'm here to make money.

It was presidentially owned by Eisenhower.

Eisenhower actually touched this piece, held it in his hands.

It's priceless.

I'll give you $1,000.

Man, I can do that.

RETAILER: Well, what can you do?


RETAILER: I'll go, like, $1,000 on it.

That's about it.

You're killing me, man.

I'm not killing you.

I'm just making you an offer.

I've got more than that in it.

I'm gonna pass.

It's a presidential item, but it's just a little

too obscure and weird to make money on.

Have a good one.

Well, all right, dude.

All right.

Thanks for coming in, man.

I paid $1,500 for this piece, hoping to make a good profit

off of it, and we weren't able to make

a deal today, so I'm probably going

to try to sell it on online.
