I watch History Channel's Pawn Stars on a regular basis and they have a GN'R item coming to the shop tonight. A GN'R Guitarist's drivers license. Doesn't say who's but it could be anyones. It airs 10PM Eastern, 9PM Central on the History Channel.

It was Slash's id. Guy wanted 50K for it, Rick said he'd do 1k. No deal.

I'm surprised Rick didn't get Chumlee to chase down Axl the way he did Bob Dylan (of course it was staged but I could see Axl doing it).

Pretty sure once it's expired it's legal. I know for certain I have seen them for sale at major auctions, but it's usually for someone that's dead.

I had a funny feeling the guy was going to ask for some outragous figure. As someone in the industry I always find the following two groups of people to be awesome in ways words cannot describe.

-The people that have something nominally rare or cool, such as this license and have decided in their heads they are worth ungodly amounts of money when the reality is they are not. Then they cling to that belief in spite of all possible evidence proving them wrong.

-The people that have a diamond encrusted 2 pound hunk of gold, and go completely nuts when they hear it's worth a shitload of money like it was the most amazing thing they have ever heard.

It wouldn't be 50K even if Slash dies. Rick's offer was too generous.

I would say at a major RnR auction it would go for something like $1,000-$1,250, meaning at a pawn shop you'd be lucky to get $500 for it.

I like how he went down from $50k to $15k in a span of 20 seconds.

Just think. If that license is worth $50k(or even $15k for that matter) what is someone like Obama's or Michael Jordan's worth? That is what these people fail to understand.

Just being honest. This does absolutley nothing for me.

It's a novelty item.

Unless it's someting connecting him with his craft, or GnR in general I'm not sure why anyone would want this, or even be into this sorta thing in general.

I mean, I have seen some of Mickey Mantle's credit cards go for thousands. I just don't get the allure I guess.

...and this is coming from a guy who actively collects memorabilia too.
