NOBODY HAS THE ADVANTAGE HERE.
IT'S MY TIME TO SHOW THEM THAT I GOT SKILLS AND I BELONG HERE TOO.
I'M TIRED OF GETTING PUSHED AROUND BY THESE GUYS.
UH, LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION, DAVE.
AT WHAT POINT IN YOUR CAREER IN THIS INDUSTRY DID YOU FEEL LIKE, "THIS IS MINE NOW"? 'CAUSE IT'S OBVIOUS YOU DO.
- THERE'S AN OLD SAYING THAT, UH, RESPECT YOUR ELDERS, YOU KNOW? - PEOPLE SAY A LOT OF THINGS THAT DON'T MEAN [bleep].
RESPECT YOUR ELDERS? I RESPECT PEOPLE WHO DESERVE RESPECT.
I WOULD LOVE TO BE AT THE LEVEL YOU ARE AT SOME POINT IN TIME.
I JUST HOPE I DON'T CARRY THE ATTITUDE THAT YOU GOT.
- BUT YOU GOT ATTITUDE ALREADY.
YOU'RE AT THIS LEVEL.
- OKAY.
- WAIT TILL YOU GET TO THIS LEVEL.
WHAT KIND OF ATTITUDE YOU GONNA HAVE THEN? - YOU GUYS HAVING A LOVER'S QUARREL? - NO, NO, NO.
YOU GOTTA BE IN LOVE FOR THAT.
- ALL RIGHT, WELCOME, AND IF YOU BOYS AND GIRLS ARE READY TO GO, WE'RE READY TO GO.
AS SOON AS WE OPEN THESE GATES, WE'RE GONNA OPEN THE DOOR.
WE'RE GONNA GIVE YOU FIVE MINUTES TO TAKE A LOOK.
YOU CAN'T OPEN ANY BOXES.
YOU CAN'T GO INSIDE.
IT'S A CASH-ONLY SALE.
ARE YOU READY TO GO? all: YEAH! - THEN LET'S GO! - LET'S DO IT, FOLKS.
IT'S AUCTION TIME, EVERYONE.
[buzzing] - SPARKS ARE FLYING.
IT'S TIME TO BUY.

BUT THERE'S BROKEN GLASS ALL OVER THE PLACE.
I DON'T WANT TO MESS AROUND WITH THIS.
UM, I'M GONNA HAVE TO PASS ON THIS ONE.
- NOT BIG ON THE, UH, BETTING AND ALL THAT.
I PREFER TO, UH I JUST STAY AWAY FROM THAT.
- GOT A COUPLE OF END TABLES, COFFEE TABLE.

- IS IT BROKEN? - IT'S BROKEN.
- LET ME SEE.
- IT'S RIGHT THERE, BABE.
- YOU KNOW, I HEAR EVERYBODY TALKING ABOUT THIS BROKEN FURNITURE.
I'M NOT EVEN LOOKING AT THE FURNITURE.
I SEE A BAG OF LEVIS IN THERE, AND I KNOW THAT THE OLDER LEVIS CAN GO FOR A LOT OF MONEY.
I'M GOING FOR THIS UNIT.
I'M GETTING THIS LOCKER.
- IT'S DAMN WELL TIME TO BUY, AND WE'RE GONNA DO THIS RIGHT NOW.
A LITTLE COUCH.
[auctioneering] I GOT 50 BUCKS RIGHT THERE.
I GOT 50 BUCKS.
- YEAH.
- [auctioneering] - SO JARROD TOLD ME HE WANTS THIS UNIT BECAUSE HE SAW SOME OLD JEANS IN THERE.
SOUNDS A LITTLE CRAZY TO ME, SO I JUST HOPE WE GET IT FOR CHEAP.
- 100 BUCKS THERE.
$125, YOU'RE OUT.
$125 THERE, $150.
[auctioneering] I GOT $125, $150.
[auctioneering] $150 GOING ONCE.
AND I GOT $125.

- YOU GOT IT FOR 175 BIG BUCKS.
THANK YOU, THANK EVERYBODY.
ALL RIGHT, LET'S GO, LET'S GO! - I'M GLAD WE WON.
I'M JUST NOT REALLY SURE WHAT WE WERE BIDDING ON.
- WE'RE GOING TO 2294, FOLKS.
- DARRELL MAY KNOW TANK TOPS, AND DAVE DEFINITELY KNOWS SHORT SHORTS.
BUT I KNOW CLOTHES.
A LOT OF THESE OLD JEANS CAN BE WORTH GOOD MONEY.
YOU CAN TELL BY THE OLD STITCHING.
WATCH, PULL THAT JEAN OUT RIGHT THERE.
THIS IS HOW THEY USED TO MAKE LEVIS BACK IN THE DAY.
THIS IS AN EXPENSIVE PAIR OF PANTS RIGHT HERE.
I MEAN, THIS IS THE RED LINE JEANS.
WHEN IT COMES TO OLD LEVIS, THE FIRST THING YOU WANT TO CHECK IS YOU WANT TO CHECK THE INSEAM.
IF YOU SEE THAT RED STITCHING IN THERE, YOU KNOW YOU HAVE AN OLD, VALUABLE PAIR OF JEANS.
YOU CAN TELL JUST BY THE STITCHING.
I MEAN, IF YOU HOLD ANOTHER PAIR UP, THEY'RE--THEY'RE NOT EVEN MADE THE SAME ANYMORE.
- YEAH, SO THESE ARE-- - YEAH, WE COULD BE SITTING ON A GOLD MINE.
- JARROD SEEMS TO KNOW WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT, BUT I JUST WANT A PROFESSIONAL TO TELL ME WHAT THESE ARE REALLY WORTH.
- THESE JEANS RIGHT HERE COULD BE 600 BUCKS.
I MEAN, THAT'S 1,800 BUCKS RIGHT OFF THE BAT.
I MEAN, IT'S REALLY HARD TO TELL.
[buzzing] - SO I SEE THE MATTRESS IN THE CORNER, AND THE FIRST THING I THINK TO MYSELF IS, DID THIS MATTRESS COME FROM BED, BUGS, AND BEYOND? - THAT'S ALL YOU NEED, MAN.
- FOR A MATTRESS, THIS LOOKS PRETTY CLEAN.
BUT, UH, MY HOME IS ALREADY FURNISHED.
- I SEE A BARBECUE.
I SEE SOME NICE PATIO FURNITURE IN THE BACK.
IT LOOKS LIKE EVERYTHING'S IN PRETTY GOOD SHAPE.

'CAUSE I'LL BE PUSHING YOU AROUND DURING THE AUCTION.

I--I SEE A GOOD, UH, CAL-KING BED.
PRICE IS RIGHT, I THINK I'LL BE, UH, BE A PLAYER ON IT HERE.
YOU KNOW, I'M REALLY INTERESTED IN THIS LOCKER.
I JUST HOPE DAVE DOESN'T BID ME UP LIKE HE ALWAYS DOES.

UNLESS THIS ONE'S EMPTY, I'M GOING FOR IT.

YOU MIGHT FIND SOMETHING.
- THIS LOCKER IS FULL OF BINS AND BICYCLE PARTS AND STEREO SPEAKERS.

- AND IT'S THE LAST UNIT.
LAST TIME, LAST ONE.
- WELL, IT'S NOT BEEN GREAT.
I SURVIVED MY VERY FIRST VEGAS AUCTION, BUT, UH, DIDN'T GET A LOCKER.
I GUESS I'M GONNA HAVE TO STEP IT UP AND, UH, GET A LITTLE MORE AGGRESSIVE ON THE NEXT ONE.
- BACK HOME, MY STAFF USUALLY TAKES CARE OF ALL THE PROCESSING FOR ME.
I'M GONNA HAVE TO DO THE DIRTY WORK MYSELF.
THIS IS A TYPICAL SMALL-TIME GAMBLER UNIT, YOU KNOW.
JUST GONNA KIND OF DIG AROUND AND SEE WHAT I CAN FIND IN HERE.
THIS IS A JUNK BOX.
COUPLE OF FLASKS.
THAT MIGHT NOT BE A GOOD THING.
GOT A LOT OF LOW-END ELECTRONICS RIGHT NOW.
THIS IS THE TRIPLE-X BOX.
NOT UNCOMMON TO FIND IN THIS BUSINESS.
AND LUCKILY IT'S NOT MORE EXTENSIVE.
THIS ONE'S KIND OF HEAVY.
WELL, IT'S HEAVY 'CAUSE IT HAS BOOKS IN IT.
I HAVEN'T FOUND ANYTHING GOOD YET.
I'M REALLY STARTING TO GET DISCOURAGED.
WELL, THERE'S SOME-- THERE'S SOMETHING IN HERE THAT [grunting] AH, MY GOD.
[grunting] MAN.
WHATEVER THE HELL'S IN HERE WEIGHS A-- WEIGHS A COUPLE HUNDRED POUNDS.
THIS LOOKS LIKE SOME KIND OF ROCK COLLECTION OR SOMETHING.
THESE ARE ROCKS THAT HAVE BEEN CUT AND POLISHED.
I WOULDN'T EVEN HAVE THE SLIGHTEST IDEA WHAT THESE THINGS ARE.
I COULDN'T EVEN BEGIN TO TELL YOU.
AND I'VE BOUGHT AND SOLD JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING I CAN THINK OF.
THIS IS THE TYPE OF THING THAT I'M GONNA HAVE TO TAKE TO SOMEBODY THAT DEALS IN THESE-- THESE THINGS.
IT COULD BE VALUABLE.
IT COULD BE WORTHLESS.
I DON'T KNOW THAT YET UNTIL I FIND SOMEBODY THAT HAS A LITTLE MORE KNOWLEDGE THAN I DO.
A ROCK COLLECTION? I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS ONE AT ALL.
- JARROD AND DAVE RAN ME UP TO 1,100 BUCKS ON THIS LOCKER.
NOW I'M JUST TRYING TO STAY POSITIVE AND SEE IF I CAN EVEN GET MY MONEY BACK.
- SOME REAL HIGH-END PATIO FURNITURE.
I'VE GOT A COMPLETE BEDROOM SET HERE.
UHLOOK AT THIS WIDESCREEN TV.
I'M FEELIN' PRETTY RELIEVED.
IT LOOKS PRETTY GOOD.
IT LOOKS LIKE I'M GONNA LEAVE THIS CITY BREAKING EVEN.
- LOOK AT THE MATTRESS.
IT'S LIKE NEW.
NO STAINS OR NOTHIN' ON IT.
OKAY, I'M JUST KINDA STACKING 'EM OVER HERE.
GRAB THAT SUITCASE THERE.
THROW THIS ONE - THAT ONE A LITTLE HEAVY? - YEAH, THIS ONE'S GOT SOMETHING IN IT.
LET'S SEE WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE.
- CHECK IT OUT, HUH? BUNCH OF COSTUME JEWELRY? - WHAT'S IN THAT-- - I DON'T KNOW, DUDE.
THIS IS LOOKIN' REALLY GOOD.
THIS IS NOT LOOKIN' LIKE COSTUME JEWELRY AT ALL.
- HOW DO YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCE? - LET ME SEE HERE.
LET ME TAKE ONE OF THESE OUT AND LOOK AT THE CARBONS AND STUFF IN THE SUNLIGHT.
DUDE, THAT'S GOT A LOT OF SPARKLE, MAN.
I THINK WE'RE INTO THE REAL DEAL.
WHOO! - LET ME SEE IT.
- THESE RINGS ARE LOOKING GOOD.
AS LONG AS IT'S NOT SOME COSTUME JEWELRY FROM SOME BURLESQUE SHOW, I MIGHT BEAT THE HOUSE THIS TIME.
VEGAS, BABY.
[jazzy music] - SO I PAID $275 FOR THIS LOCKER, I'M GONNA TAKE THIS ROCK COLLECTION TO A GEMOLOGIST.
AND I'M HOPING THAT HE AT LEAST TELLS ME I'M GONNA GET MY MONEY BACK.
- WELL, YOU HAVE SOME REALLY INTERESTING PIECES HERE.
SOMEBODY COLLECTED A LOT OF MINERAL SPECIMENS.
LOOK AT THE TOPS OF THESE NODULES.
- MM-HMM.
- THESE ROUNDED PORTIONS ARE-- ARE CALLED BOTRYOIDAL FORMATIONS.
SOMEBODY WOULD LOVE TO HAVE IT.
I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE IT.
- WELL, FOR THE RIGHT PRICE, YOU CAN HAVE IT.
TODAY.
- YOU CAN SEE INSIDE OF THIS ONE.
SOMEBODY JUST KNOCKED ON EDGE OFF, AND YOU CAN THEN ACTUALLY ENVISION THIS EXACTLY WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE.
- MM-HMM.
JUST A ROCK OUT-- - JUST A ROCK LAYING OUT.
- LAYING OUT SOMEWHERE.
ALL THE BEAUTY IS IN THE INNER PART OF IT.
- YOU KNOW, I'M REALLY STARTING TO LIKE THESE THINGS.
THEY'RE JUST LIKE ME-- ROUGH ON THE OUTSIDE, BEAUTIFUL ON THE INSIDE.
- AND LOOK AT THIS ONE.
YOU'VE GOT THREE QUARTZ CRYSTALS GROWING AT DIFFERENT ANGLES.
YOU'VE GOT THEM GROWING OFF OF EACH OTHER WITH A SMALL QUARTZ CRYSTAL IN BETWEEN.
THIS COULD MAKE A GORGEOUS CENTERPIECE.
THOSE THREE TOGETHER IN THAT FORMATION PROBABLY DOESN'T OCCUR ANYWHERE ELSE.
THIS WOULD BE A VERY UNIQUE-- VERY UNIQUE FIND.
- HOW OLD DO YOU THINK THAT PIECE IS? - IT'S MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD.
- MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD.
- MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD.
- HE'S TELLING ME THESE THINGS ARE PRACTICALLY FOSSILS.
I'M STARTING TO SEE DOLLAR SIGNS.
- YOU CAN SEE HOW THESE SPARKLE REALLY GOOD.
- UH-HUH.
- THAT'S ALL QUARTZ CRYSTALS.
MICRO QUARTZ CRYSTALS IN MATRIX.
YOU'VE GOT MINERAL SPECIMENS HERE THAT WOULD GO ANYWHERE FROM - AND A LOT OF PEOPLE LIKE TO BUY THESE AND MAKE A STAND FOR THEM.
YOU'VE GOT MINERAL SPECIMENS HERE THAT WOULD GO ANYWHERE FROM $50 TO $500.
- REALLY? - FOR A SINGLE MINERAL SPECIMEN.
- WOW.
FOR A SPARKLY ROCK? I'VE ALREADY DOUBLED MY MONEY ON THIS DEAL.
- SO WHAT DO YOU THINK THE TOTAL VALUE OF EVERYTHING THAT YOU SEE HERE WOULD BE? - IN TOTAL, THE VALUE WOULD BE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF $5,000.
- REALLY? I'M FLABBERGASTED.
WITH OR WITHOUT A CREW, I CAN MAKE A PROFIT IN ANY TOWN IN THIS COUNTRY.
THE HANDS OF GOLD WILL TRAVEL.
- PICK OUT THE BEST ONE THAT YOU LIKE AND PUT IT IN YOUR HOME.
- I THINK I'LL DO THAT.
- GREAT.
- OKAY.
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.
- ALL RIGHT.
- I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR HELP.
- I BOUGHT A LOCKER FOR 175 BUCKS BECAUSE IT HAD A WHOLE BUNCH OF OLD LEVIS IN IT.
NOW I'M GONNA GO GET 'EM APPRAISED SO I CAN PROVE TO EVERYBODY I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING.
THESE ARE THE JEANS THAT WE CALLED YOU ABOUT.
- OKAY.
GREAT.
- AWESOME.
- WELL, THERE'S A LOT OF TREASURES IN LEVIS THESE DAYS.
SO LET US TAKE A QUICK LOOK HERE.
BACK IN 2005, '06, AND '07, THE JAPANESE, THEY LOVE AMERICAN CULTURE.
THEY WERE BUYING THEM FOR AS MUCH AS $3,000, $4,000 A PAIR.
AND THE FUNNY THING ABOUT IT WAS, THE MORE DISTRESSED THE PAIR WAS, THE MORE THEY WANTED THEM.
THOSE WERE THE HIGHER PRICE AND THE HIGHER RETURN YOU WOULD GET.
- THOSE ARE GOOD AND DIRTY.
THEY GOTTA BE WORTH SOMETHING.
[chuckles] - THERE'S A COUPLE TELLTALES TO THE ONES THAT ARE OLDER.
I GUESS THE FIRST THING THAT WE LOOK FOR IS A BIG "E" IN THE NAME "LEVIS.
" - A CAPITAL "E" OR AN OVERSIZED "E"? - ALL CAPITALS.
- ALL CAPITALS.
- AND THOSE ARE THE ONES THAT ARE WORTH A LOT OF MONEY.
- IF THERE'S A BIG "E," THEY COULD BE WORTH A LOT.
IF THERE'S A LITTLE "E," THEY'RE NOT.
- SO LET US TAKE A QUICK LOOK, SEE IF WE CAN FIND ANY THAT HAVE A BIG "E" OR GIVE YOU SOME KIND OF DATE ON THEM.
- THESE ARE THE ORIGINAL LEVIS, SO THESE ARE THE SMALL "E.
" - APPARENTLY, WE DON'T HAVE ANY BIG "E"s.
BUT I KNOW WE HAVE A PAIR OF RED LINES IN THERE.
- YOU ALSO WANT TO LOOK DOWN HERETHE RED LINES.
- IT'LL HAVE A BRIGHT RED STITCH RUNNING - RUNNING RIGHT THROUGH THE SEAM.
- YEAH, THESE ARE DEFINITELY THE MOST VALUABLE.
IT'S A FAINT PINK LINE, SO YOU CAN TELL THEY WERE RED LINES.
FROM WASHING AND WEARING FOR 20 YEARS, YOU KNOW, IT'S GONNA FADE.
THESE ARE DEFINITELY THE OLDEST AND THE MOST VALUABLE, I WOULD SAY.
- FOR THESE, YOU COULD BE LOOKING SOMEWHERE IN THE MAYBE $400 PRICE RANGE.
ON THE REST OF THEM, YOU KNOW, YOU MIGHT BE LOOKING IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF ANYWHERE FROM $50 TO $200.
- SO RE--REALISTICALLY, I MEAN, IF WE SAY 100 BUCKS A PAIR ON THESE, WE COULD BE LOOKING AT $1,200 HERE? - YEAH.
- UH, YEAH, DEFINITELY COULD - AND THAT'S REALLY GREAT FOR US.
I MEAN, WE PAID $175 FOR THE UNIT.
- THAT'S AWESOME.
- IF WE GOT $1,200 HERE, I MEAN, THAT'S A HOME RUN FOR US.
- I'M ACTUALLY IMPRESSED WITH JARROD RIGHT NOW.
HE REALLY KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT.
- THANKS A LOT.
I APPRECIATE IT.
- BETWEEN THE COUCHES AND THE JEANS, WE'RE UP OVER 1,000 BUCKS RIGHT NOW.
I CAME HERE TO PROVE I KNEW WHAT I WAS DOING, AND I HAVE.
I KNOW A COUPLE OF THINGS.
SOMETIMES, YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO ME.
- I'M TAKING ALL THE JEWELRY TO A LOCAL JEWELER.
I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S WORTH $5 OR $5,000, BUT I'M ABOUT TO FIND OUT.
SO, YOU KNOW, I BOUGHT THIS IN A STORAGE LOCKER, AND I'VE BEEN SITTING ON IT ALL NIGHT.
AND I DIDN'T SLEEP GOOD.
IT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY.
I'M DYING TO FIND OUT WHAT THIS IS WORTH.
- OKAY, I'LL HELP YOU.
- OKAY, WELL, THAT'S WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR.
- NOT TO WORRY.
- I'LL SEE WHAT WE GOT HERE.
WE'LL GO AHEAD AND OPEN 'ER UP.
- JUST BE PATIENT.
- WELL, THERE IS A LOT OF IT.
SO I WAS GONNA SAY THAT TO YOU.
- OKAY, IF YOU'RE NOT PATIENT, YOU'LL BECOME ONE.
[laughter] - THIS MORDECHAI GUY, HE'S PRETTY COOL.
I'M KIND OF LIKING HIS STYLE.
- I'M GONNA SORT 'EM OUT.
THE REAL STUFF, PUT ONE SIDE.
THE JUNK PUT IN ANOTHER SIDE.
OKAY? - ABSOLUTELY.
- WOW, THEY DIDN'T PUT A YEAR DOWN.
SHAME ON THEM.
- WHAT IS THAT? - IT'S A CALENDAR ON A HEART.
AND THERE'S A DIAMOND IN IT.
NEED YOU TO PAY VERY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THIS PIECE, OKAY? - IS IT THAT NICE OF A PIECE? - VERY NICE PIECE.
OKAY, IT'S A TIFFANY.
I DON'T KNOW HOW OLD IT IS.
IT COULD BE A COLLECTOR'S ITEM, OKAY? - SO ANY WOMAN WOULD BE HAPPY TO GET THAT.
- YEAH, AND NOT TOO MANY OF THOSE ARE AROUND.
SO BRING IT TO ME.
I'LL POLISH IT FOR YOU.
MAKE IT LIKE BRAND-NEW.
- MORDECHAI, YOU'RE THE MAN.
NOW I'VE GOT SOMETHING TO BRING HOME TO MY WIFE.
- THIS IS VERY GOOD ITEM.
IT'S A 14-KARAT SOLID GOLD.
- NICE.
- PRETTY OLD.
BULOVA WITH THE DIAMONDS.
- EXCELLENT.
- OKAY? THIS SHOULD BE.
ALL RIGHT? - THERE WE GO.
- THAT'S A TIFFANY NECKLACE.
- YEAH? - OKAY.
- THAT'S GOOD STUFF, RIGHT? - YEAH.
- COME ON, MORDECHAI! TELL ME HOW GOOD IT IS! - AWESOME, AWESOME.
- WHOO! YOU KNOW, HE KEEPS WRITING DOWN NUMBERS.
I'M HOPING THIS STUFF IS WORTH SO MUCH THAT HE CAN'T EVEN KEEP TRACK OF IT.
- LET ME TOTAL IT FOR YOU, OKAY? THE BRACELET, THIS ONE IS THAT'S ABOUT $2,000.
YOU GOT THE STUDS HERE - AWESOME.
- FOR $500.
- NICE.
- THIS HEART, SOLID GOLD WITH A DIAMOND ON THE CALENDAR IS ABOUT $500.
- YES.
- THIS WATCH IS $1,500.
- BOOH! - OKAY? - THEN YOU GOT THAT TIFFANY NECKLACE, WHICH IS $1,500.
GOT EVERYTHING TOGETHER, CAME OUT TO $17,000.
- YES! - YOU KIDDING? - WHOO! THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKIN' ABOUT! THAT'S THE WILD FACTOR, BABY! - OKAY! - THAT'S THE WILD FACTOR.
I AM UP 17 GRAND! I AM LOVIN' THIS CITY RIGHT NOW.
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE, I'M LEAVING VEGAS WITH SOMETHING.
announcer: TWO DAYS INTO THE VEGAS AUCTION, AND DARRELL SHEETS IS UP 17 GRAND.
DAVE HESTER BANKED $4,700 ON A ROCK COLLECTION.
JARROD SCHULZ MADE 1,000 BUCKS ON SOME VINTAGE LEVIS.
AND BARRY WEISS HAD NO LUCK AT THE AUCTION OR THE BLACKJACK TABLE.
- OKAY, GUYS, GOOD LUCK.
- WELL, MY WINDOW OF LUCK IS ONLY BETWEEN - DO YOU FEEL LIKE AN ENTREPRENEUR, OR WHAT DO YOU FEEL? - HONESTLY, I FEEL MORE LIKE A PILE OF MANURE.
[laughter] IT'S A FINE LINE.
LOOK AT BERNIE MADOFF.
