AMERICAN PICKERS is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on the History Channel. This hit show follows two of the most

skilled pickers in the business, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, as they embark on an

epic road trip across the U.S. in search of America’s most valuable antiques from

motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia.

Hitting the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank earn a living by

scouring the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and

barns. The best part of their journey is meeting the unique characters along the

way, each with a story to tell about the history of their collection and their own

lives.

Mike and Frank bring the past to life and recycle America as they go. They use

their determination, expertise and charm to strike the ultimate deals and discover

just what it takes to re-sell a newly founded antique in a competitive market.
