Trivia

As of January 2010, the show's most expensive appraisal ever shown was an 18th Century Qianlong Jade Collection, acquired by the owner through her father who served in the military as a liaison. After learning that some of her items had imperial seals, she decided to take them into the roadshow to learn more about them. Much more to her delight, she also commented that she had several other pieces still at home that she decided against bringing in. See more »

They don't make enough them to satisfy me!
15 November 2008 | by SylSee all my reviews

Let's face it, we are all trying to make money in these tough times or invest it in antiques. In this series, the appraisers travel around the country to appraise various items. There are always interesting items that pop up at the road shows. There are thousands of willing guests praying that they hold a treasure among their prized possessions. One guy brought Gale Sayers football jersey with marks and all that his wife was going to throw out. The appraiser valued it at 20,000-30,000 easily. The jersey was priceless anyway because of the history during his season. Of course, some people like myself look around for my most valuable piece whether it's furniture or a book. One lady retrieved a book from the garbage which was an actual screenplay to an early film with autographs from the director, writer, and major cast members. She saved it from near destruction. Now, not everything is going to be valuable unless you pay a lot of money or go treasure hunting. I think this hobby is better suited for adults. Check around to see if you have a valuable painting etc. that could pay the bills or if not. Keep looking, and watch and learn from the show itself.
