Rick Harrison, the star of the hit reality TV series “Pawn Stars,” recently wrote a heartwarming letter to a young boy with autism who tried to sell his Gameboy to the Las Vegas shop for $30.
The note was first posted on Reddit on Wednesday and its authenticity was confirmed by a spokesperson on Friday, the Huffington Post reports.
Reddit user MrsLeslie provided the note as well as an account of what the boy’s mom revealed to the “Pawn Stars” crew:
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.
The response “J” got back was a hand-signed letter from Harrison himself, which included $30 and the boy’s Gameboy.
