Not a championship ring, subby. Just a ring.

He's imaginary, just like the Pats goddamn passrush.

That's because people in Philadelphia aren't familiar with the concept of "Super Bowl ring."

Seriously the farking idiot accepted $150? for it?   well I have a feeling the pawn shop had a inkling it was stolen and took a small risk on a huge pay day if it was not.

And the pawn shop doesn't get charged for dealing in stolen goods?

They'll lose the ring and get no compensation.

I wonder how much a pawn shop will pay me for a Miami Heat 2014 Finals Champions ring?

You're giving Fall River Pawnbrokers faaaaar too much credit here.  I'm still wondering how the hell FRPD only arrested him on a charge of "larceny under $250 by false pretense."  Seriously? Just because the pawnbrokers were too stupid to know what they were doing doesn't meant that ring is only worth $250.

He was the player that held the team together. A brazen warrior who conducted himself well.

FTA: According to the police report, left tackle Nick Solder says he noticed the Tiffany ring was missing from a jewelry box after leaving the house for the day.

The ring has nothing to do with football you morans.

A "pawn" is the same as a loan as both have expectations of the customer returning to get the item.  The buying price is always higher opposed to the "pawn" or loan on the item.  Since the "Pawn Shop" is essentially storing an item for the customer over a period of time, interest rates apply and vary by state. I believe in PA they are still about 3% as opposed to Florida, which is about 20%.   (insert Florida tag)

Also let me add that many times the customer will ask for the amount he/she needs, this allows them to afford and retrieve the item quickly.  Between the time of the initial loan, assuming the person has made no attempts to pay, it could be almost a year until the store can put it out for sale. Since this isn't an electronic item, depreciation will be considered into the equation, but not much considering diamonds and gold have been steady as of late.

Many will read the headline and article one way, however I read it the following way..

Man decides to take a short-term loan against a NE Pats ring he stole, does so he has the ability to buy it back sooner than later.

This also probably explains the receipt they found in his home.  As he would need this to retrieve the item.

I recently got hookd on Pawn Stars, on one of those "10 episodes in a row" blocks.  pretty awesome.  nice mix of American Roadshow (or whatever on PBS, wehre people bring obscure but cool shiat in) and a game show.

the reality stuff is terrible, though.  reality tv is cooked anyways, but the scripts these guys get are just bad, period, and then the acting is terrible.  the little 3 minute vignettes add nothing to he show (i.e., "chumley is the inept security guard', 'the dad plays guitar lessons', "chumley plays a prank on dad', etc).  the show would be better if it just deal, deal, deal, walkaway, deal, etc.

there was a funny one of some dude selling 1850s era train equipment or survey equipment.  he was asking $3000.  the bald guy was like, "there's no question this is original, the thing is, this is just useless outside of a survey museum.  this is just a bunch of metal, to me."  offered $150.  the guy walked away but he was like, "fark these people, fark this place, i thought this was a reputable busienss, i'm farking out of here" (bleeped of course).   he wanted $3,000 for some shiat no one wanted.  unreal.

Well, it's possible someone would be willing to pay for it...but why would anyone go to a pawn shop when you can just sell it online and actual people who are interested in your product will pay for it?

No matter what you have to sell, someone, somewhere collects that shiat. If you're lucky, two or more people collect that shiat. Your job is too find those people and goad them into bidding against each other.

Because selling something online could take time, especially if you're not experienced at it.  Pawn shops are for people that need money fast or just don't want to deal with trying to find a buyer on their own.  Or for crooks to try and fence their ill-gotten gains.

I was going to add "unless you're trying to get drugs immediately" which basically means the same thing.

/which explains why pawn shops exist where they do
