The Auction Hunters Hit Pure Pasadena Profit

May 13, 2012
Home to wealthy residents, a famous monthly flea market, and jam-packed with antique items that would make any collector jump in joy, Pasadena was stop for the Auction Hunters this week. Let's jump right to it - time to clean out the storage units and see what Ton and Allen could salvage from their trip to the City of Roses:


Sold For: $5,000

You're probably wondering who would use a huge carpet to wrap something, right? Well, it's definitely worth it when what you're sheathing in protection is a gigantic gun – really, really gigantic. I'm talking so big it even made Ton look so small. After talking to Brian, an avid collector of antique firearms, our heroes realized that this beast of a gun was a punt gun. So maybe it wasn't used in Football, but this kind of gun was in great shape and more importantly, hadn't even been made for about 100 years - so it easily fetched $5,000 for the boys. As is Auction Hunters tradition, Ton absolutely had to put this mega firearm to work, absolutely decimating the shooting target. Yep, big guns mean big cash.

It was just pure Pasadena profit this week: after spending just $600 on two units, The Auction Hunters were simply surprised with how much moolah they stuffed into their wallets. The boys sold their finds for $12,760 and took home $12,160 in profit. Cha-ching!
