The Disney Figurines Set That The Pawn Stars Bargained For

In the world of collectibles, there are two things that always seem to sell well, figurines and Disney. This is for good reason. A nice set of figurines can serve as quite the conversation piece when employed as a decoration — even more so when the figurines are made by someone important. As always when it comes to collectibles, having a story increases an item's value. Meanwhile, Disney is, well, Disney. The company has been successful for the better part of a century, and they've created a lot of valuable products over the years.

As a result, people have brought in a fair share of both figurines and Disney memorabilia on the History Channel show "Pawn Stars." However, one woman brought in a double whammy in a fateful episode: a set of 12 frosted glass figurines depicting a variety of classic characters like Mickey Mouse and Goofy. The seller, a middle-aged maiden named Sharon, bought the figurines at a swap meet some years prior to the episode. Furthermore, the man she purchased the figurines from claims they were created for an Italy-based Disney theme park that never came to fruition. If so, they would be much more rare and valuable than the average Disney figure. However, "Pawn Stars" has Richard "the Old Man" Harrison on this case. With life experience on his side, his negotiation skills might be more than the seller bargained for.

How the Old Man lands a deal for some Disney collectibles

For obvious reasons, these Disney figurines have drawn the eye of the Old Man. He definitely sees the potential to make a decent profit on these, especially if Sharon's story is true. There's one small problem, however: The seller has no documentation to corroborate the idea that these figurines are throwaways from an Italian Disney park.

Unfortunately, the only indication that these figurines are even Italian comes from the Italian writing on the packaging. That being said, the figurines look to be in great condition. On their own, they might still be worth something. The seller also didn't walk in with a particular price in mind.

As a result, the Old Man bases his offer off of what he sees in front of him — some nicely made Disney figurines. With that in mind, he estimates a price of $250 for the entire set. The seller weighs her options for a moment before deciding that the Old Man's offer is a fair deal. In the end, both parties walk away happy. Unfortunately, nobody ever uncovers the figurines' origins.
