BLUE DOG PAINTINGSold For: $8,250
Artist George Rodrigue likes dogs; rather he likes "blue" dogs. Luckily for Ton and Allen so does the marketplace. When they stumbled across a signed book portraying all of Rodrigue's artwork, Allen knew they had something of value on their hands. It was worth maybe $75
, but when they found a one of a kind Rodrigue painting that was confirmed as such by the book, then the Hunters REALLY had something of value. Their art dealer expert, Sandra took a look at the painting, and she knew right away that not only was it real, but that it was something she wanted. Next question: how badly did she want it? The two sides battled back and forth for what seemed like an eternity, only to finally come to an agreement: $8.250
On Facebook this week we set these two great items up against one another. It was a hotly contested debate with the majority of you choosing the knuckle duster as the big winner. Unfortunately, looks can sometimes be deceiving and though the gun was highly valuable, nothing beats an original painting. Hats off to the blue dog.
Wow, it was not just a lucrative week for the Hunters, but a hell of a cool one as well as they picked up some great movie and Hollywood collector memorabilia. Signed posters, sealed action figures . . . you add in Blue Dog, and the knuckle duster and this really was a week to write home about. After dropping $1,050
on two rooms, the first of which was a bust, they sold their contents for $13,750
and had a take home that was equal to a king's ransom: $12,700
. Hail to the king.
There's nothing wrong with being a little Hollywood, and based on their profit this week, Ton and Allen were A LOT Hollywood. Curious to see this great episode all over again? Then head over to Spike.com to see this week's "Knuckle Duster
