"You’re only as good as the last deal you made." Frank Fritz

American Pickers

In small towns, and along America's back roads, treasures are waiting to be uncovered. Valuable relics from history that are hidden in junk piles, buried in barns and stacked in garages.

It takes special experts to find these lost artifacts and hopefully turn rust to riches!

American Pickers follows two of the most skilled "pickers" Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology, and his business partner, Frank Fritz, as they hunt down objects with historical, collectible and pop culture value that have been long forgotten by their owners. Along the way, they meet people whose own stories open a window into American lives and history.
