This is Robbie Whitten, owner of a number of pawn shops across the Southeast. He might tell you otherwise, but he’s a total collector, and he has some super cool things for sale at his stores. He was generous with his time and even drove to another one of his stores to get a 1920s tommy gun he wanted to show us.
That’s Robbie with a Dali, a baseball, and a 1918 Gibson 2V guitar. All photographed on location in Phenix City, Alabama. This ran in the April 2013 issue of Entrepreneur Magazine.
