We Found a Few "American Pickers" DVDs Buried in Our Backyard


Can you imagine how many priceless artifacts of Americana would have remained undiscovered were it not for the recent slew of antique hunting television shows? Just think: countless Coca-Cola signs still hidden under piles of tires, discarded vintage Big Boy statues never revealed in the dark corners of attics, and classic G.I.Joe's mixed in with trinkets at garage sales. We owe the revitalized items of yesteryear to men like Mike Wolfe and Frank Firtz of American Pickers, men who commit themselves to searching out treasures that would otherwise be long forgotten. To honor their efforts, we're giving away two copies of American Pickers: Volume 4 on DVD.

To find out how you can win, just keep reading.

In small towns, and along America’s back roads, treasures are waiting to be uncovered — valuable relics from our history that are hidden in junk piles, buried in barns and stacked in garages. It takes experts to find them — and turn rust to riches. American Pickers follows two of the most skilled “pickers” — Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology and the “Jack Kerouac of Junk”, and his business partner, Frank Fritz— as they hunt down objects with historical, collectible and pop culture value. Along the way, they meet people whose own stories open a window into American lives and history.

American Pickers: Volume 4 proves there’s no place Mike and Frank won’t go in search of hidden treasure as they pick through the hills of Malibu, California, go to a backcountry Alabama auction, and go on assignment for William Shatner across eight all-new episodes such as “Fairlane Fever”, “The Emu Chase”, “They Boldy Go” and “Possum Trot”.
