Pawn Stars, American Pickers, Hollywood Treasure, Storage Wars, Toy Hunters, Auction Hunters, Auction Kings — the list of reality TV treasure hunting shows goes on and on. If you could spend a week with the crew from one of these shows (or one that I missed) who would it be. For me this was a fairly easy decision .
When I was a teenager I was ask to help clean out a storage locker that belonged to an elderly woman,That day gave me a traumatizing incident ( think Arachnophobia meets Hoarding: Buried Alive ) that to this day has left me with a deep distrust of storage lockers. Instead of going out and looking for the treasure myself I think it would be fun to share knowledge about the items with the owners, So my choice would be either :
Gary Sohmers: pop culture expert and appraiser of toys, collectibles, and memorabilia on Antiques Roadshow
Noel Barrett appraiser of Antique toys and advertising memorabilia on Antiques Roadshow
Between the two of them they have knowledge that covers pretty much everything Im interested in. Just think about the thousands of rare awesome items they get to see everyday while sharing information with the item owners that will keep them from being swindled by Mike and Frank.
