'Storage Wars': Dave Hester Scores Huge Lot Of Books For A Steal (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Dave Hester scored a rather unique haul on "Storage Wars" (Tue., 10 p.m. EST on A&E). The locker he bought turned out to be packed wall-to-wall and front-to-back with boxes upon boxes of books. After paying $900 for the locker, he was feeling pretty good about what he uncovered.

The books appeared to be in great shape, so he estimated that if he could sell them for an average of $1.00 per book, he'd rake in approximately $15,000. That would give him a lot of leeway to haggle the price down and still come out way ahead.

If he really wanted to dig into the collection, it's possible he might find some rare first printings or older hard-to-find books in the midst of it as well. Those alone could quickly push him past his spending cost for the locker. And maybe he'll even find a good read while waiting to find out how much the whole lot's going to fetch him.
