I RISKED IT ALL! $7000 1 unit STORAGE WARS STYLE! I bought an abandoned storage unit

I RISKED IT ALL! $7000 1 unit STORAGE WARS STYLE! I bought an abandoned storage unit


I have to get a house right now and I
gambled it all on the storage unit oh my god look at that right there
you cannot hit a home run unless you swing the bat oh my lord what is this
then there was this what do we kind of here whoo ladies and gentlemen boys and
girls of all ages here we are I was gonna pick up and do my $5.00 unit now
but I’ve already waited a week to open this unit up right here
I paid $7,000 mm-hmm I almost choked up when I said it that’s so crazy okay yes
$7,000 I spent on this one storage unit crazy to believe soon as they open it
you end up about to open up right now I’m here by myself no salt mint no
nobody I just got to do what I got to do so as soon as they open this unit up I’m
gonna show you it was not even open up a foot and a half and I was already like
I’m buying this unit I thought I told myself my brain my guts that everything
you’re – no matter what it takes my heart nemesis and one of my good
friends Kowboy you saw him in the safe video recently also has his own YouTube
channel he was one bidding against this which tells you Tom he’s a smart man who
was brave enough to bid that much – he was doing because he wanted it it’s
gotta be something in here so let’s get going and see we got as soon as I saw it
as it came up like this it came up and all I saw was this right here I went
right to this I saw the bats I just asked all I saw
cobwebs dust baths that’s when I immediately knew I wanted this unit you
can see them right here – you can see let this scroll across with wood bats
we’re best that’s when I already knew I wanted the unit that’s how bad sometimes
this job is like so
and this is what was showing right here canes that right there is a sterling around
that cane cane collection you see this one here I mean that could be gold could
be gold you see military items right off the bat military items you see more bats you
just see bats right that’s all you’ve seen and then you could peek down here
you couldn’t see it because the wood was there but that nice Dewalt drill there
that’s a nice drill it’s been a long day that is not a drill that is they saw
that’s it you see more bats we’re gonna start going through these things this is
mark the den miss keep up you can’t see and there you see a stick poking out I
like to know what’s in there this right here is a corner cabinet a
glass front corner cabinet now that’s a pretty nice corner cabinet because you
think maybe they has something worthwhile in a corner cabinet I don’t
know a gray coat I don’t want to say it I got the wrong thing that’s cool that’s
good you see more bats oh and what did I see over here this wood box binoculars
let’s see what we got right here oh that is a good name right there DET del trim
carl zeiss jena delt Trenholm 8 by 30 whoo Wow speaking
of a fight there this is actually a 10 by 30 there’s two sides to this unit
here is the other side of this unit we are not going to open this after I do
I’m gonna go in this side pretty soon but we’re gonna start the other side so
this let’s go be top secret Oh guys this is crazy
so you know I buy a lot of storage units you know I love to I’m basically a risk
taker I’m a gambler I do things that I probably shouldn’t but with great risk
comes great reward and I’ve been working my tail off and I wanted this unit but
right now I’m scared to touch something else I touched the Carl Zeiss binoculars
you just saw them right there on the shelf seven thousand dollars into this
unit and I am a little nervous too any farther also probably almost
overlooked as the fact that his bag very probably military it’s the way the thing
is designed is probably some form of military issue bag
we have Lincoln the hugs that was one of the things that people kept mentioning
in the video and there was Lincoln Logs in the front there was Lincoln Logs a
plan that’s probably 1977 as the year before I was born I probably had a set
just like this diamond plantain that’s got to be twenty or thirty bucks
I’m not gonna sit here and look it up and tell you but this would have off top
of my head I’m thinking 20 30 bucks on eBay for this Scout set handmade storage
camp right here you know anything about me you know that’s one of my turn on
this cobwebs but let’s look at this best look at that Louisville Slugger
excellent condition but who is that right there
who is that right there so far we’re touched three items Carl Zeiss
binoculars Lincoln Logs and a Mickey Mantle baseball bat I okay I’m feeling a
little more confident I’m not usually like as I’m telling you we’re not even
gonna be like hey we’re gonna look at this at the end no we just have to go to
it because we don’t have much choice October 20th 1913 he says something on
it it actually has a another name or is that like a Stan doesn’t look like it’s
really gold you can see on the edges is kind of worn down but that is still a
nice cane like as far as canes go maybe it could be gold though oh look at this Wow presented to a ishe fir crazy I
don’t even know what to say about this stuff guys we’re just like literally
four items in to a seven thousand dollar Locker let’s go on to the things that
made me buy this unit this is really where the first thing that I fell in
love with was these bats we’re gonna go right to it with these bats I got to

like what does I say all the time nice 100 percent of home runs are never hit
unless you swing the bat it’s 100 cent Guerin I say that all the time you know
I like to kind of try to be too motivation we try to cute business but
it’s a good analogy if you don’t swing the bat you can’t hit a home run
Johnny Bench one of the greatest players of all time right there Louisville

this owner had lost the unit from a gun store they had a long time ago there’s a
rumor going around the rumor mill because somebody came in the office was
a friend of theirs and these people lost the unit that had a lot of money and
guns because they had a gun store I just don’t even know where to begin like this

through all these things there’s no way we got here 20 feet of sanding paper oh
my lord what is this what is this go to ladies
and gentlemen we got some stuff coming out of here running dill tap kit Brownells sight and
scope mounting so that’s shooting stuff all right we have cleaning stuff anvil
this one says Made in China this one is the old handmade one I believe this is
for bullet making or it’s for something to do with something like that we got
micrometers micrometers for days but I love the word rich when I open up a
toolbox the waltz all right Oh rigid wall the
wall cordless drill another Richards we’re not bad we got
some books in here I’m not interested in the book so much but that is a nice haul
of tools for sure we’re not even done I guess we should look at the books to
make sure we can see an idea of Theodore Roosevelt like that I’ve seen an
exploration Pendleton kind of small looks like a woman’s and this is neat
too hand-woven in Norway measured we’re very interesting very interesting
pulling stuff out of this box I don’t know what neatest stuff is looks
like something modern Danish they get all out he is massive look at that and
this mirror I don’t know what this is this seems like something quality made
just by the way doesn’t seem like you go to the store and buy this thing is heavy I’m gonna have to have that looked at
that it’s not even it’s a magnifying glass there is a whew I gotta call it a night here soon we
just keep finding stuff and I don’t even want to quit now look at these lists
super scope mount range ring super scope mountain base super scope mount base I’m
here it’s dark I can’t even see and I can’t stop now I waited one whole week

looked at and and then there was this what do we kind of here what do we got
here steps falling oh my god here Wow I don’t even know that’s like a bronze nice and then we got the boats around
soon so that’s a good item right there right off the bat you know Bose is good
so if this whole system is here now we got the wait to see that Cousteau masts
module I mean there are hella cubes that’s a little bit of money right there
in itself all right that is the first video in this seven thousand dollar unit
let me know right now below if you think this is gonna be a good unit with what
you see right now let me know how much you think I can make back just on what
you’ve seen so far I’m so excited there will be many many videos that come in
this probably at least twenty videos of unboxings and a couple major recap
because I’m have to do a major recap just to show you everything by the time
it’s done but anyway don’t forget the like button don’t forget the share
button and say something like pirate scare money don’t make money and I’m
glad you had the balls to go seven thousand dollars on this storage unit

100 thoughts on “I RISKED IT ALL! $7000 1 unit STORAGE WARS STYLE! I bought an abandoned storage unit

  1. Louaville is how its said , sorry pirate its a pet peeve!!! Have family that lives there so its drilled into my brain, lol

  2. Hey,
    if the ink pens from Mont Blanc, a german Brand, they cost easily 1 k.
    The Mexican and native Blankets could be also very precious..

    Joe from Germany

  3. I think you can get an even bigger house!! Way cool!! If I lived closer I would help you figure out what you had.

  4. this is like a giant treasure chest, Alibaba"s cave or something, a lot of interesting stuff in there ! cool flies they look really old ! wow …obviously made a great buy there, the owner had a lot of cash, so many collectibles your hearth must be racing , hands shaking a bit maybe !? i would !!

  5. You need some older guys and ladies! I'd say your 7 grand is safe. I'm 66, and I recognize most of that stuff. Somebody liked good quality.

  6. Dude, slow down and take it easy! You need to be a LOT more careful with this stuff. You are going to end up breaking something and lose out on a lot of money. Slow and steady wins the race.

  7. Hey Pirate, I'm not an expert by any means, but a couple tips on the bats. Obviously the Signature is very important. The 125 is the hardness of the wood that the bat is made from. The # on top handle is how many ounces it weighs, sometimes it's also the length,ie 28= 28 ounces or 28 inches. The name is pronounced Louie-ville forget the S it is Silent. If you would go into any sports memorabilia place of business and say Louis-ville I'm afraid they would try and take advantage of you. Good luck !!! I know you took a big risk, my gut feeling just watching the video, this risk is going to PAY OFF BIG TIME !!!! I look forward to finding out. You might consider containing Jebus or Jeremy from What the Hales, they both seem to have knowledge with sports stuff. My knowledge is just common sense and being 64 and lucky enough to be able to see guys like Johnny Bench, Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente and who I believe is the G.O.A.T. of baseball Willie "the say hey kid" Mays play. I grew up in Sunnyvale, Ca. About 45 miles south of Candlestick Park where the S.F. Giants played. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts and videos, RODNEY

  8. Just an opinion, but I think with what you have looked at so far, you’re probably in the $5=$10,000 already, good luck, I’m excited for you !!!!

  9. The gun in the heart shaped container from the jewelry box is a real gun. I believe it is a Colibri made gun. They shoot a real cartridge. (A fantastic find you should actually keep). Congratulations. 🎉

  10. Varnished brass cane handle. The right Louisville Sluggers can be woth money, some not so much. Although Carl Zeiss optics arw generally higher quality, even Zeiss has entry level optics. Of course as you know, knowledge is always the key. Research, research, research…

  11. Man I hope those bats are the real deal. Maybe they aren't just signature printed. Even if they came from the factory signed they could have been used by the people who signed them. Could have hit a record home run with them or something. In a collection like that I'm sure someone would have some history and paperwork on them. Great locker. I'm sure you made way more than you paid. That nice DeWalt saw should be thousands

  12. Id bet theres a few guns in that locker somewhere… in fact you found a gunsmiths toolkit, ammo and various other gun related items.

  13. You are going to have to do videos of the appraisers work, your Question at 22:07 , I'd guess you to be at 3x what you paid. If you stop beating stuff up.dont forget to get the blankets aprasid .

  14. it's LOO-UH-VUL slugger if you have ever been there, LOOEEVIL also works for most purposes. Certainly not LOO ISS VILLE. Great investment on that sweet storage!!

  15. Dude you just hit the mother load. JACKPOT !!!!!!!!!!
    I’ll take the unit off you for 10k lol
    Congrats on the unit
    No risk no reward

  16. Be very careful with everything a single scratch on some of those items can drop the price dramatically- take your time and get someone you trust to help value everything- good luck and keep us updated 👍

  17. The way you are carelessly unwrapping things and taking them out of their original containers makes me cringe. The jewelry box was an example, all you looked at was it gold or silver. You were just throwing items back in the drawers. If you thought the original owner of the unit was wealthy, then you might consider why items were kept, how they were stored, and their potential value. You don’t go digging in the boxes like you just bought a $50 unit.

  18. I'm 18 min into your video and can't watch anymore. You're giving me a heart attack watching how you're handling all these valuable items. Leave everything packed, load it up as is, take it to a location where you can unpack it correctly and safely. Do your video there. Not at the unit. GREAT BUY!!! Also, put the camera on a tripod and use both hands!

  19. Alex archbold from curiosity inc. He has his ownlevels channel May help you he's a good guy and he owns a antique store new sub thank you for the video can't wait till the next I think you easily made you money back with just the few things you pulled out

  20. Your lucky you got you r money back! You have Mooney in those pictures bars the box fishing hunting chairs you got your money back 2times over!

  21. Some of those pads could be worth thousands $ if their game played some are antiques could I have your money back in just the bats

  22. I just subbed because of this vid. I am sure i can speak for all your subscribers you hit the jackpot. And we want updates. Congrats on the locker dude money very well spent.

  23. Some of what you discover, especially those canes are awesome. Having to actually use one, you need to coordinate with your outfit. Where do you sell? Johnny Bench was the catcher for the Cinnnatti Reds.

  24. If you have not thought about it as of yet: You really should take those Bats and those Cains to an Auction house for not only value but also to get the best information possible for future reference…. Sending them to Auction within an Auction house could yeild you more $$$$ same for those Cains.

  25. I know you made an excellent gamble. You will have your house in no time. Outstanding. New subscriber, enjoying your video.

  26. After all is said and done with the time spent running around to sell everything, you should get about $6999.00

  27. YOU hit the mother lode bro,the collectables are worth some money,but be a little gentler with the items,wear gloves you nut!

  28. Those blankets can be hand wove Indian made and worth LOTS of money! Don't toss ANYTHING out until you have it looked at and appraised. PERIOD!

  29. I’m only half way through the video but the first 7 bats I saw look to be old reproductions, very common and mass produced. One even said little league on it. The real good ones would be game used bats and I don’t believe those bats are. Game used bats would have the players numbers on the bottom handle of the bat and the numbers would be big bold and in black coloring possibly burned. If it’s a small imprinted number it’s just the length or weight of the bat. A lot of people use the old wooden bats for art projects and that may be why there was so many. All in all they’re probably worth about 10 bucks apiece but I hope I’m wrong. I want to see you do well on them so I would still take them into a collectible sports shop and see what they think.

  30. I think you need an auction house most of the stuff especially some of the Asian items are worth a lot. Canes can be worth thousands. At least they can catalog and tell you the proper values

  31. Mike's auction link https://biddoab.hibid.com/catalog/180905/storage-auction-pirates-booty–7000-unit-online-auction-/

  32. That one louie if real worth 7k alone sell it all yourself no wholesaling
    what a nice chunk 🙂 cash house here i am

  33. Please tell me those are player issued/ game used bats and not just louisville factory sold player bats which they actually do. The looks of the bats matches the timeframe they would be used. Btw, David Parker would be an early Dave Parker bat and the "Gary maddux" bat is actually a Greg Maddux bat. Those two along with the mantle and bench bats if player issued or better yet game used bats would pay for the locker four times over atleast. To bad none that you have shown "so far" have been signed…

  34. Then you pull a clemente and Aaron bat. The grip tape and grip tape markings make them seem for real. You are making me cringe the way you are handling them. Put the phone down and handle with care….

  35. The sspokane indians print tells me that those bats could potentially be actual player bats and not the replicas made for purchase. Plus the signed photos could easily mean that they are all real autographs. I would get everything appraised and authenticated.you could have 50% dlown payment on a 200k home. If all checks out a ok

  36. You definitely hit the jackpot! It looks like someone's antique shop stored away waiting for a new store front location. I would handle everything like it's GLASS!! You are tossing around thousands of dollars worth of valuble items. Everything you put on the ground like the bats and bumping everything like the cranes will scratch and damage. I just started subscribing and looking faward to your future finding videos. Be patient do all your research and contact a auction dealer and get some of the items apprised. I wouldn't doubt that you will sell just one item 5 times more then what you paid for the unit.

  37. well if the small while gun is an acual gun, it is from the 17 or 18th century, and not many were made, so I would say you would make some good money on that.

  38. That lamp could be a Tiffany and pay for the whole unit.

    Looks like a major score, you should easily recover your money and make a tidy profit.

  39. You really ask what we think? I've been dealing antiques and collectibles on the east coast since before you were born, and all I can say is that you should read a few antiquing periodicals, so that you have at least an IDEA what you are talking about. You are treating some of these items like they are firewood, then going ga-ga over something that's worth a dollar or two. The only reason I subscribe, is to see how wrong you usually are! EDUCATE YOURSELF! You can't go by thhe prices you see on the I'net … especially E-bay. Go to shops and do some research. It is a good feeling, knowing what you are talking about. AND you'll feel good when you know approximately what something is worth on the spot, instead of making wild guesses, or waiting weeks or months to pop out a video with the REAL values listed. Still . . . a fun site to check once in a while.

  40. The Mantle, Bench, Parker and Maddox bats are all little league or “store model” bats. They don’t have much value. The K100 is a “Fungo” bats used by coaches. The M110 is probably the most valuable if it’s not cracked or broken. Maybe $30-$40 on the secondary for someone looking for a bat to play with in a wood bat league.

  41. You might have better luck selling those bats if you pronounced the word “Looey-Ville” slugger instead of “Lewis-ville”. But congratulations on that locker. It seems to me you stand a good chance of making some good money. Twist those canes with the metal rings on them, they might have swords or knives built in. That one name you could not read is “Campenera” I’m pretty sure. I’m not sure those bats are worth very much because they seem like they are sporting good store items, not from the majors. The signatures are branded in, not signed on. Looks like you have a lava lamp there. Some of those decoys are very valuable. The previous owner was into reloading his own ammo. Some of those textiles might have high value. Look for “Remington” on that horse.
