If you have a house bulging to the rafters with action figures, or a few rooms devoted exclusively to soft drink memorabilia, and you’re wondering just what it might all be worth, Andrew Zegers is your man. In this series, the antiques appraiser travels across North America to check out myriad collections ranging from snow globes to harmonicas and beyond, and to reveal to the extreme collectors what the whole kit and caboodle is worth. An entertaining watch, and for those of us with decades of stuff that we can’t bring ourselves to part with, perhaps a little inspiring.
