The series, which debuted in 2010, explores “the fascinating world of antique picking,” according to the release, following skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques.

“They are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them. As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, the Pickers are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way, the Pickers want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items,” according to the release. “They hope to give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way.”
