    All I know is it would take a pretty penny for me to part with my broadsword that's been imbued with the power of the mystics.

    I mean if I was in possession of a haunted or supernatural item that I wanted to part with (for w.e reason), I'd think a pawn shop is as good a place as any to start.

    I didn't know if it was similar to championship rings where there could be supplemental value depending on the prominence of the spirit/background story.

    Hell no and I never would knowingly.. I have young children.

    I am acquainted with some gentlemen that once purchased a bad storage locker. Had vudoo dolls, shrunken heads (believed to be artificial), amateur taxidermy and multiple urns seemingly full of human ashes. They claimed it had a bad energy about it and weren't able to sell any of the stuff. Ended up trashing it. I could see this sort of thing popping up at a pawn shop. :idk:

    They didn't try to sell the human remains. They called the police and tried to contact previous owner. I'm not sure how they actually got rid of those. I'm assuming there are various statutes dealing with that sort of thing. One of our lawyers could probably comment on that aspect.

    He is dead now, widely believed to be suicide.

    Imagine how awesome it would be to buy some little cursed trinket and hide it in that annoying cow-worker’s laptop bag.

    I mean, it was funny when it was done with rotted meat (or so I’m told.)
