‘Pawn Stars’: A ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Signed Jacket Gets Brutal Appraisal

by Jonathan Howard

There are many strange and interesting items that come into the Pawn Stars shop. A Sons of Anarchy vest received little praise. Although the show was hugely popular, this customer didn’t get what he was looking for.

While there are lots of TV memorabilia in the show, this motorcycle vest wasn’t up to snuff. The customer brought in a vest and it was covered in signatures. This is something that isn’t too uncommon, however, there were some glaring flaws with this item. In a surprising turn of events, Rick didn’t know much about the vest or the show. So, Corey had to come in and educate his dad.

Of course, Corey Harrison is a Sons of Anarchy fan. Have you seen the guy? While Corey knew some about the vest and the signatures, he wasn’t 100% sure what it was worth. He did notice that the vest was missing some key signatures including Kurt Sutter’s, the creator.

Check out the video below.

The Pawn Stars always have a guy they can call. So, they did. When the expert got there, he reiterated a few things that Corey had brought up. Number one, the vest was a cheaper vest and not one used on the show. It was made by the owner as a fan piece and then signed at a charity event. So, right there, that is a knock against the piece.

Then as the expert went over the signatures, he could affirm they were all valid. However, there were omissions that kept the value down. Sutter was one. Also missing, Charlie Hunnam (Jax) and Kim Coates (Tig) as well as one or two others. So, with all that in mind, the expert told the Pawn Stars it was likely worth $600. The customer wanted $1000.

‘Pawn Stars’ Customer Takes Vest and Leaves

When the customer brought his autographed vest into the shop, he was hoping to get $1000 for the piece. That was not the reality, though. So, after the appraisal, the offer he got was not what he wanted to hear. Corey offered him $200 to start off. The customer looked dejected and not in the mood to negotiate at this point.

However, he asked for $500. Then, Corey upped the price to $300, which is generous given the retail price. Despite the offer, the customer decided to hold onto the vest. Perhaps he can snag a couple more signatures to bring the price up. So, the deal didn’t happen and the two parties went their own ways. Nothing wrong with that.

The Pawn Stars are always out to make money. So, if they can’t get the margin they need or want, they will pass. The same goes for customers. If they don’t like what they hear, they just take their items and go. No harm no foul. Not everything can be worth thousands of dollars.
