Long before banks, ATMS and check-cashing services, there were pawn shops. Pawning was the leading form of consumer credit in the United States until the 1950s, and pawn shops are still helping everyday people make ends meet. Pawn Stars takes you inside the colorful world of the pawn business. At the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop on the outskirts of Las Vegas, three generations of the Harrison family - grandfather Richard, son Rick and grandson Corey - jointly run the family business, and there's clashing and camaraderie every step of the way. The three men use their sharp eyes and skills to assess the value of items from the commonplace to the truly historic, including a 16th-century samurai sword, a Super Bowl ring, a Picasso painting and a 17th-century stay of execution. It's up to them to determine what's real and what's fake, as they reveal the often surprising answer to the questions on everyone's mind, "What's the story behind it?" and "What's it worth?"
When a Mick Foley T-shirt and autographed mask come into the shop, Rick calls in a special guest to authenticate it; a seller walks in with an unopened McDonald's cookie from the 1980s.
Rick tries to win one from the Gipper when a special pendant hits the counter. Can the patron saint of pawn shops help Rick land the deal? Next, a massive collection of vinyl LPs has Chum's head spinning. Can he get into a groove with the seller, or will this deal get scratched? Then, it's happy days for Corey when a dress from Laverne and Shirley comes into the shop. Will he be able to skirt the issues with this item? Or will Corey take the L and let the dress walk out of the shop? And finally, Rick and Chum get fired up when they head to the desert to shoot the shop's newest firearm. But their canon feels quaint when they spot the big guns - and Rick might just explode from jealousy.
Rick and Chum flip out when Spencer stops by the shop with a few vintage items. Will they tilt the negotiations in their favor, or will they not be able to see eye to eye? Next, a Bruno Mars platinum album spins into the shop. Can Corey land a funky deal, or will he get locked out of negotiations? Later, Chum twists and shouts when a pair of boots signed by Ringo Starr walk into the shop. Will he and the seller be able to come together, or will Chum have to make his peace with not landing a deal? And finally, Rick calls in actor Dennis Quaid to help authenticate a signed poster for his upcoming movie. Can Rick be a great communicator, or will the seller give him the cold shoulder?
Chum goes for a hole-in-one when a signed Jack Nicklaus golf glove swings into the shop. Meanwhile, Corey targets a G.I. Joe Tomahawk helicopter toy. Will he get to be a real American hero, or will this deal go AWOL? Next, an antique Fender amp rocks Chum's world. Will the price be music to his ear, or off key? And later, Rick and Spencer go on a picking adventure in Huntington Beach, California. When they find a treasure trove of military items, does Rick have enough ammunition to close the deal?
When a vintage Yellow Cab hat pulls into the shop, can Rick hail a fare deal? Next, a seller pops in with a gum ball machine. Will he stick to a fair price, or do Corey and Chum have to burst his bubble? Then, Corey gets to play with the world's first video game console. Can he control the negotiation, or will it be game over? Finally, Rick and Chum are ready for their close up as they head west to check out a treasure trove of Hollywood memorabilia in California.
