After the online show ‘Pinoy Pawnstar’ went viral after it featured several Francis Magalona belongings, Jayson Luzadas, who was behind the program, was already receiving offers from collectors who wanted to buy his treasures.
It can be recalled that Jayson collected several personal items from the Master Rapper. Still, one of the most notable was the jersey he bought from former flight attendant Abegail Rait, who claimed to be Francis’ last partner before he passed away in 2009.
He bought the jersey for P500,000, but even just days after the episode, some people had already expressed interest in buying his collections for a more significant price.
In an episode of his program, Jayson was visited by financial influencer Marvin Favis, who offered to buy all of his Francis M. collection for P8,000,000.
It also included the jersey bought by Jayson from Abegail, which Marvin offered to buy for P2.5-M.
However, Jayson refused the bid made by Marvin, saying that his collections were priceless.
According to him, his children would be the rightful people to decide whether they will sell it or not.
“Nate-tempt pero siyempre na-ano ko pa rin na kailangang i-preserve natin ‘to. Nakaka-goosebump lang kasi may tumatawad na ng ₱8M,” said Jayson.
“Kahit ako rin, hindi ko pa naiisip ang lahat ng ‘holy grail’. Gusto ko muna siyang ma-exhibit sa museum at uulitin ko, hintayin ko na lang ‘yung anak ko na mag-decide para sa akin,” he added.
Marvin didn’t pursue his offer and just took a photo with Jayson’s collections.
