1900 Calendar Cards Sell on History Channel for $950… Wholesale Price.

Pawn Stars – – Season 15, Episode 25

For those who caught Pawn Stars on April 23, 2018, a set of Antikamnia calendar cards was purchased by History Channel celebrity proprietor Rick Harrison for just shy of $1,ooo.

Rick commented something to the effect of:

      “I’ve now got the material for the next Stephen King novel.”

Rick indicated that he would frame the set, and then hang it on the Las Vegas Gold & Silver Pawn Shop wall.  With a hefty mark-up on the price, of course.

Immediately after the show’s airing, there was a “run” on Antikanmia calendar cards on ebay, with a half dozen or so individual card pages promptly selling for $160 to $275 each.

 

Dave and Rick close their Antikamnia Calendar $950 deal at the Las Vegas Gold & Silver Pawn Shop… with a handshake… and a nearly $1,000 cash payout.

Apparently, the producers of the show figured those creepy Pawn Stars Antikamnia skeleton images would provide a brand of haunting humor most folks would find hard to resist. 

Same as over a century ago.  

Enough said.  Good Collecting, as always!  – Dave Cheadle
