It wasn't Rick Harrison bringing the item to Rick - it was someone else. Of course, by OAD, the Pawn Stars would first reject it, then a month later you see the guy bringing it Rick's to restore. (Yes, I know Rick H. probably gave the guy the address, but still).
You see crossovers between the two a lot, but it's usually because the item was bought at the pawn shop and brought over to restore. Not an item that was rejected and the owner then brings over to restore.
