If you’re a fan of The History Channel’s “Pawn Stars,” then here’s your chance to get an autograph at Vegas’ Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.

The Pawn Stars (Rick Harrison, Richard “Old Man” Harrison, Corey “Big Hoss” Harrison and Austin “Chumlee” Russell), as well as experts from the show have announced that they are holding autograph signing sessions.

“It took some serious planning and trial runs but we think we now have a system that works to allow more fans to meet us and the experts on the show,” said Rick Harrison, owner of Gold & Silver Pawn Shop. “That was the one piece missing to a great experience when visiting Gold & Silver Pawn.”

Since more than 4,000 people a day visit the small downtown location and filming takes place from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. on weekdays year-round, finding the time to do this is a challenge. However, the team will make it work.

Autograph sessions take place once a day during the week at random times (when filming allows) and the Pawn Star or expert signing will depend on the availability.  Signings will take place Monday – Friday now through Feb. 22, as well as the following dates:

  • March 11 – April 5
  • April 22 - May 24
  • June 3 – 28
  • Sept. 3 – Oct. 11
  • Nov. 1-22
  • Dec. 2 – 20

“Obviously production of the show comes first and is not always predictable, so we will fit the signings in between those times, which is why we cannot set a firm schedule,” said Theo Spyer, manager of the store.

The autographs also work for a good cause. With every purchase during the signings (guests must buy at least one item for a meet-and-greet, cost doesn’t matter), all proceeds go to charity. Since there isn’t filming on the weekends, Saturday autograph signings will be added at a later time. In trial runs held over the last month, these sessions were a success.

“We knew we needed to find a way to engage with our fans more completely and I’m glad we found the right opportunity to add it into their experience,” said Russell. “I find meeting all the people and making their visit to Gold & Silver Pawn cooler is a great addition to their overall experience at the store. The fans love that we allow them to help us give to charity, too.”

Gold & Silver Pawn is open 24 hours a day, year-round.  The store is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and the night window is open from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m.  Located on the famous Las Vegas Strip in downtown, Gold & Silver Pawn Shop is home to the show “Pawn Stars” and owned by three generations of the Harrison family (Rick, son Corey and dad Richard).
