“American Pickers” Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are coming to Indiana in their sixth season.
“American Pickers” is a documentary series that explores the world of antique “picking.”
The high profile show follows two of the most skilled pickers in the business as they embark on an epic road trip across the U.S. The show offers insight into what it’s like to be the men on the ground who are on the frontlines of the antique industry.
The show follows the pickers in their truck as they go on a mission in search of America’s most fascinating and valuable antiques — treasures that have been long forgotten in junkyards and barns across the country. The team tracks down unique and interesting items from motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia.
Wolfe and Fritz bring the past to life and recycle America as they go.
Producer Thomas Giglio says the hosts like to pick and get their hands dirty and see what kind of treasure is out there.
“Coming into our sixth season, we’re looking for the best collections, such as big, open spaces; warehouses, garages, things that are cluttered and messy,” he said. “We want to see who has collections and what people have to share with us.”
The collections have to be on private property. They’re not looking for farming/agriculture items, tools, glassware, appliances, tractors, crocks, stoves or country primitives.
Some items they are looking to buy include vintage movie memorabilia, vintage advertising items, taxidermy, vintage concert posters and T-shirts, early Boy Scout items, pre-1960s vintage diner collectibles, pre-1960s TV merchandise, pre-1950s western/equestrian gear, classic motorcycle memorabilia, old rodeo items, airline collectibles from Pan-Am and TWA, late 1970s and earlier military items, bizarre mobster memorabilia, vintage police officer collectibles, pre-1940s telephones, folk art, vintage BB guns/cap guns, early Halloween items, pre-1940’s Christmas items, Hawaiiana/Tiki collectibles, vintage sports collectibles, vintage election memorabilia, musical instruments, Civil War antiques, vintage gas pumps, pre-1970s neon signs, strange woodcarvings and vintage collegiate collectibles.
Only large collections will be considered for the show.
“We’re looking forward to some great collections in Indiana,” Giglio said. “We haven’t been there in a while and we’re excited to come back.”
