Sundays at 6:30 PMeastern (on most MeTV stations)
MeTV Network, America's No. 1 classic television network, proudly presents an original TV series, Collector's Call. Hosted by Lisa Whelchel (Blair on The Facts of Life), the unscripted series introduces you to some of the biggest collectors of pop culture memorabilia in the country.
- 6/11 6:30PMHollywood Cars- Brian Grams"Combining his love for Hollywood and his background as director of his family-owned car museum, Brian Grams has amassed a spectacular collection of movie and TV cars. Whether it's Greased Lightning, the Batmobile, or even the iconic station wagon the Griswold's drove, Brian's brought Hollywood history to this Midwest museum. Our appraiser and pop culture expert, Kate Martin, will evaluate this multi-million dollar collection and then attempt a trade she hopes will result in a Hollywood ending for both of them."
- 6/18 6:30PMGarfield- Cathy and Robert Kothe"With over 6000 unique pieces of Garfield memorabilia, it’s no surprise Cathy Kothe holds the Guinness World Record for the largest collection dedicated to the lasagna-loving cat. As a young child, she became enamored with the Sunday comic, and that love snowballed into a house filled with orange tabby cats. We’re joined by Cathy’s husband, Robert, who embraces life amongst the orange felines and refers to himself as Cathy’s greatest “enabler.” The couple co-authored a book, “Loves Garfield,” documenting their collecting adventures over the years. Nancy Vega, the President of the Garfield Gathering, joins us as we explore this massive collection, and she’s found one Garfield collectible that Cathy doesn’t have to offer in an enticing trade."
- 6/25 6:30PMToys- Nick Mayor"Husband and wife Nick Mayor and Jen LeMasters were drawn together by their love of all things weird and wonderful. Now their home is an eccentric floor-to-ceiling showpiece of vintage toys, nostalgia items, and the occasional unclassifiable oddity. Lisa joins them for a look at some of their standout treasures – including a very rare “Alien” action figure and a spectacular Masters of the Universe ride-on Battle Cat. Joining them is vintage toy vendor Michael Tomaso, who puts a value on Nick and Jen’s entire collection, then attempts to lure them into a trade for one of their most prized items with a double-barrel offer he’s sure they can’t refuse. Though what he wants in return might be a problem."
