I believe this show makes fraudulent claimes. I watched one episode where the older husband and wife team purchased a guitar, sight unseen. The expert that they took it to claimed that it would be easily worth of $1000. After doing a quick ebay search, the average price was approximately anywhere between $100 and $150!!! The reason they said it was over $1000 is because the couple paid at auction $250 and it looks better for the show if each couple win. I believe it's not the only show where they make rediculous claims regarding how much money they "would" make after selling something they'd found. REALLY what they should do is show how much was made after the item was ACTUALLY sold, not pulling figures out of thin air!!
