    Anybody watch shows like Pawn Stars where people bring in things to sell? What have you seen on these shows? I’ve been binging a bit on Pawn Stars the last few days and so far I’ve seen Rocky Marciano’s trunks for the second LaStarza fight and signed photo cards from Jack Dempsey, Jack Johnson, and Georges Carpentier (sp?). Also a closed circuit poster for Ali - Foreman. I’ve spotted a couple of championship belts, too, but only in the background.

    Saw another episode where someone brought in what were supposedly Marciano’s heavy bags, including his 200 lb. bag. The coloring was right, per a Google photo search. The “experts” on the show couldn’t validate them. I didn’t see a Benlee label; though the labels could have been turned away from the camera. The show didn’t touch on the brand name.

    I know these shows are for entertainment and shouldn’t totally be trusted, but I still find them fascinating.
