  • 2/23 9:30PMMeet Scott Hamilton
    "Scott Hamilton is a four-time world champion figure skater, best known for winning the 1984 Olympic gold medal during the Winter Games in Sarajevo. He’s also a world-class memorabilia collector. But while he does keep a few items from his notable figure skating career, including the costume he wore in the 1984 Olympics, his collection isn’t dominated by items from his career. Instead, Scott primarily collects vintage pinball machines and guitars autographed by rock and roll’s most famous personalities, including the Eagles and Bruce Springsteen. Most of these items were purchased to benefit a variety of charities, including his own Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation. Scott is joined by his wife, Tracie, who shares his dedication to charitable organizations and love for music. And Lisa has brought back certified appraiser Judy Martin, who has something quite unique from the music world to offer as a trade item."
  • 3/1 9:30PMMeet Errick Spencer
    "His passion and knowledge of sneakers--mostly Air Jordans, has led Errick “Unbreakable Kicks” Spencer to assemble an enormous and amazing collection of shoes, which he displays and then reviews on his YouTube channel for his many followers. The Kobe/Jordan pack and Drake collaboration are just a couple of the gems found in his “sneaker vault.” Errick’s patient wife TaShamber joins him for support – and to find out just how much he’s spent on his latest pair. Our expert, Anthony Guzman, a shoe store owner and sneaker collector himself, will size up how much Errick’s collection is worth, and will try to make a sneaky trade with the sneaker collector – bringing along a pair of kicks he knows Errick wants, but asking for twice as much in return."
  • 3/8 9:30PMMeet Al Sorenson
    "Al Sorenson is a grade school teacher who also has a separate career as a professional artist, specializing in sketches of legendary sports figures, which he offers for sale at trade shows throughout the country. Al’s passion as a collector is celebrity-autographed memorabilia, including a sketch he produced of Michael Jordan, which “MJ” autographed. Some of his celebrity-autographed items are sports-related – like the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey jersey signed by the entire “Miracle On Ice” team. Others have connections to television – like the 1975 Happy Days script signed by “the Fonz," Henry Winkler. But all the signed items from Al’s collection are unique. Al is joined by his wife Cindy, who encouraged Al to start his collection years ago. And Lisa has brought along Scott Ibarra, a sports memorabilia dealer and collector himself who, like Al, is a huge Chicago Cubs fan. The trade item that Scott has brought to Al just happens to represent one of their favorite team’s great moments."
