Oh man, damn it what's wrong charming! I just almost had a killer deal.
Freaking pair of nike paranormal phone posits we're going for 1900 hot pockets.
Phone posits, a basketball shoe.
I could've easily made 300 bucks for you like that boss, but the guy emailed me back.
Someone bought him yesterday, 1900 for a pair of damn tennis shoes.
That sounds like to me.
These guys have to understand that there's other ways to make money and right now shoes are worth their weight in gold.
You guys might know about old antiques, but when it comes to modern stuff, if you guys would just listen to me a little bit, you guys would be increasing your bottom dollar by a big amount.
You know guys trump knows what he's talking about.
I don't have any idea what a pair of paranormal phone posits are, but I think we should give him a shot.
Okay find me some good deals on that stuff.
Let's talk finder's fee.
What kind of percentage am I gonna? Get your salary, an everlasting gratitude point.
I got no problem taking my salary as long as it walks through the doors, but if I'm putting in extra work extra work, you don't work to start with.
Is he really going to tell me that sitting in that chair, I worked my whole life to sit in this damn chair.
I don't need some giving me crap about it back in the day we worked.
Our ass off.
This generation wants everything handed to them on a silver platter.
If you make me some big deals where I make some good money I'll throw you a bone I'll give you two percent of the deal now we're talking.
Finally, gonna give me a piece of the pie.
I'm gonna find a big deal.
That's gonna make everybody some serious cash, all right, well, I'll, definitely line a few deals, though, for you rick in the meantime, why don't you get back to all that hard work? You're doing boss does have a point.
I've been trying to convince the guys that I can find them some killer deals, so I found something that could make rick a whole bunch of money.
I just hope: he's got an open mind: hey, what's up you guys from the pawn shop yeah how you doing this place is amazing, world's largest collection of nikes.
It looks like a temple to me so give me a minute while I meditate every shoe in this collection is brand new and each shoe represents a pivotal nike innovation.
This collection's my pride and joy, but I'm looking to sell it because it's time to move on, I'm gonna ask for a million dollars for my collection, but I'd be willing to take 800 000.
So what all do you have here? Well, it's the world's largest collection of nikes.
It's broken down into categories like running basketball, different themes and all the shoes are on display with toys and props that bring them to life.
Do you sell these? I'm gonna sell them all at once.
Okay, can you show us around? Oh I'd, love to you've got 40 years of nike running all in chronological order where nike running ends, nike basketball begins, so you've got five aisles of basketball, there's just so many damn shoes you'll never find another collection like this anywhere.
I can appreciate a few good pairs of shoes, but this is insane.
What are those up? Top we've got three dozen oregon waffles: the waffle sole was created by the founder of nike, who started pouring rubber and synthetic materials into a waffle iron to try to get soles.
That would grip the ground better.
This shoes, an oregon waffle from 1973 and it's in university of oregon colors, which is where nike got its start.
So how much is a pair like this worth? Seventeen hundred dollars holy nike was started by phil knight and bill bowerman selling shoes out of the trunk of their car at track.
They quickly became one of the most popular brands on the planet and many of their product lines would sell out in minutes.
That's why they're so collectible today? What are those sneakers? The shoes behind me are inspired by cartoons.
Comics superheroes, like superman, spider-man, the incredible hulk.
Okay, I like rouch, oscar the grouch just cause.
You are a grouch.
You must like cookie monster.
Then I don't know what is that? That's the dunk corner holy sneakers bam there.
It was the holy grail.
This thing was freaking amazing.
So what's so special about these chum, I mean you got the what the dumps you got, the supreme collection.
You got the huffs, you got the diamond tiffany blues everything's here.
I can't believe it.
So what exactly is a dunk in 1986 nike made the dunk.
It was a basketball shoe, but since then the dunk has become an iconic skateboarding shoe and behind me are about 50 pairs of the rarest nike skateboarding shoes that have ever come out.
Okay, what's your most expensive pair of dunks here, this pair right here is worth about five thousand dollars whoa.
So what do you want to do with all these shoes? I want to sell them.
How much do you want a million dollars, a million dollars for shoes? You got to be kidding me.
I know for you it's just two things on the bottom of your feet, but for other people this is the whole world.
You really believe these shoes could be worth a million dollars.
Um yeah I'd say we got close to you, know 15 000, just on this top row, a million dollars for shoes, a million dollars for 2 000 shoes.
I know for you it's just two things on the bottom of your feet, but for other people this is the whole world.
You really believe these shoes could be worth a million dollars.
Um yeah I'd say we got close to you, know 15 000, just on this top row.
I think trump set up a real possible deal here.
I know enough to know that people will pay insane money for some nikes, but I need to take a step back and work.
The math, a million dollars, comes out to 500 per pair of shoes.
I'm thinking if I can get this guy closer to 200 a pair.
It might be a deal, but I have to keep my labor cost in mind.
I mean: what's your rock bottom price on them, I want a million dollars.
What I'm looking at here is something that's going to take me two years to sell a ball.
I'm going to have someone working for me for two years that I got to pay a salary to to sell all this stuff.
I mean I'll, give you 300 grand for it no way.
Maybe that's cash.
You walk away.
You don't have to deal with nothing, no way, not even close I'll, come down to nine rick, don't let the deal of a lifetime slip out of your hands.
Rick is a tough negotiator, but I can't let him pass this one up.
This is a gold mine for him and not to mention a pretty big payday for me.
How long did it take you to buy them all 13 years, you'll, never see another collection like this in the world.
I mean I'll.
Tell you what I'll go? Half a million bucks.
I won't go anymore because literally it's gonna cost me at least a hundred thousand just to sell it all.
Half a million bucks is 250 a shoe.
I've got shoes in here that were five grand I'll come down to eight.
That's my rock bottom price.
I'll! Tell you what to go 550.! I can't do it.
This is too low.
It was nice meeting you, man, rick, it's nice meeting, you too nick.
I really appreciate you.
Let me see everything but come on john.
We got to go this ain't going to happen.
You want to sell anything individually thanks for coming by nah, thanks for showing me much you're, really really missing out rick.
You know what I still think it's worth the chance.
It really sucks.
We didn't make that deal.
Rick would have made some serious money and I would have got my two percent and having those shoes in the shop would be unbelievable.
We should have made that deal.
I know, but if the deal's not right the deal's, not right.
Well, you just lost me.
My percentage on the whole deal you at least buy me lunch.
We've already had lunch and the day's over second lunch, I'm telling you that was a million dollars in shoes there for a good deal.
If you couldn't make money on that, I don't know what you could make money on sorry, chum, maybe next time yeah maybe can we get a couple shots, I'm not doing shots with each other.
