American Pickers are searching for Houdini

I love the History Channel show American Pickers, which follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they travel around the country picking through people's garages and barns in search of "rusty gold." It appears the pickers are headed next to Pennsylvania, and according to Berks-Mount News, the show's producers are looking for fresh leads.

"Among the items Wolfe and Fritz are on the lookout for are motor scooters, Harry Houdini items, old advertising signage, old rodeo items, motorcycles, bicycles, military items from the late 1970s or earlier, Civil War antiques and old toys."

I admit whenever I watch the show I fantasize about seeing Mike and Frank pull an original King of Cards poster or a Magic Made Easy pitchbook from a pile of junk. Maybe this season...

UPDATE: American Pickers find Houdini in Leadville.


  1. I'm not sure if I had anything to do with this. I spoke with Arthur Moses about this show and suggested he get in touch with them. Let's hope he did, and they took the bait!

    1. Arthur would be a great expert to contact if they found something!
