Rick Harrison Of 'Pawn Stars' Responds To Letter From Little Boy With Autism In Most Awesome Way

Posted:   |  Updated: 01/25/2014 4:01 pm EST


The cast of the "Pawn Stars" TV show spends its days assessing the value of items that come into the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas.

Well, we've assessed their latest move -- and we think it's priceless.

On Wednesday, Reddit user MrsLeslie posted a note that Rick Harrison, one of the show's stars, penned to a young fan with autism who wrote in.

According to MrsLeslie, the boy's mom said:

Little J is a huge fan of 'Pawn Stars,' and he talks about the show incessantly. I encouraged him to write them a letter, which he did, and he offered to sell his Gameboy to them for $30. I added a cover letter describing J and his autism -- and although I told them that I didn't expect them to actually buy his Gameboy, I did ask if they could at least reply.

Not only did Harrison reply, he also sent $30 and the Game Boy back to 'J.'

A spokesperson confirmed to HuffPost on Friday that Harrison was indeed the author of the note.

Now, we're sure 'J' wouldn't trade it for anything.

This is an awesome story. It made me cry. I love how people see the worth of a child to be so valuable that even a little thing like buying the gameboy and sending a note to this young man would be an inspiration to so many. I never watched this show but now can say that I am a fan of who they are
