U.S. broadcast net ABC is getting into the artifactual game, premiering a Leftfield Pictures series focusing on the sports memorabilia business on March 24.

The Pawn Stars producers will head to broadcast television with Ball Boys,  a 12 x 30-minute series focusing on Robbie’s 1st Base store in Baltimore, Maryland, and the sports fanatics who work there –Robbie Sr. and Junior, Sweet Lou and Shaggy.

The series will depict the negotiations of buying and selling rare sports merchandise, while sports legends such as football’s Jim Brown, baseball’s Pete Rose and former basketball star and current ESPN commentator Jalen Rose, will drop by. Brown appears in the first episode to authenticate his signature on a helmet brought into the store.

The show premieres with two half-hour episodes on Saturday, March 24 at 3:00-4:00 p.m. EST.

Leftfield Pictures’ Brent Montgomery and David George serve as executive producers, while Shawn Witt is co-executive producer.
