The reality star posted a photo on Instagram posing in a black cowboy hat and some dark aviator sunglasses. He’s certainly not out on the Dutton Ranch with some gorgeous Montana mountains in the background, either.
‘Pawn Stars’ Icon Channels Inner ‘Yellowstone’ Persona
Rather, the “Pawn Stars” icon is standing in what appears to be a backroom at his famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Harrison captioned the photo, “It’s always a good day when I wear my cowboy hat to work.” It’s certainly a cowboy look that both Kayce Dutton or even Rip Wheeler would approve of. Both are known for often sporting a darker-colored cowboy hat when appearing on “Yellowstone.”
A cowboy hat and sunglasses indoors certainly isn’t the go-to look we see on Rick Harrison while he’s getting great deals and finding artifacts over on “Pawn Stars.” Rick Harrison has been the star of the popular History Channel series since it premiered back in 2009.
The 19-season-long show features other larger-than-life characters like Chumlee, Corey Harrison, Big Rick, and other recurring people.
Recent Rare Item on the Show
Over the course of the years, fans have seen some pretty priceless items and artifacts roll into the “Pawn Stars” shop.
From a George Washington Colonial suit to a Robosaurus to the original “The Godfather” script to O.J. Simpson’s Ford Bronco to the original Beatles contract, you never know what to expect.
Recently, Michael Jordan’s sneakers from the cult classic movie “Space Jam” made an appearance on “Pawn Stars.” The NBA legend appeared in the movie alongside Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes in 1996.
Harrison and Chumlee visited a seller at a Los Angeles warehouse who claimed to have the shoes Jordan wore for the movie. He told the “Pawn Stars” that he got the shoes from a relative that worked on the set.
An expert claimed that the shoes could sell for close to a million. Rick Harrison was hesitant and made a $300,000 offer for the Jordan 11 shoes. The seller denied the offer and Rick and Chumlee walked away empty-handed.
Fans were quick to point out that this may have been a loss for the “Pawn Stars” crew. Not only is “Space Jam” a massive international success, but the shoes are connected to Jordan, who fans call the G.O.A.T.
One person wrote, “I can’t believe that guy is even in possession of those 11s. They belong in a museum, they’re a piece of sport/pop culture history.”
Now that the “Pawn Stars” missed out on the item, it’s unclear where the shoes will go in the future. It’s possible there will be a higher bidder that will take the item for closer to a million.
