MeTV Network, America's No. 1 classic television network, proudly presents its first 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.
Ep : Meet Paul
Paul Lisnek has been collecting Hollywood props and memorabilia for decades, as well as an extensive collection of U.S. historical political items including Presidential signatures and locks of hair.
Ep : Meet Rick
Rick Goldschmidt loved the toys of his youth so much that, as he grew older, he didn’t give them away — he bought more! Rick has a collection that now literally covers every surface and wall of his entire house.
Ep : Meet Deb
Deb Hoffman doesn’t just collect Winnie the Pooh items, she’s in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest collection of Winnie the Pooh items. The nearly 18,000 pieces are spread across two houses.
Ep : Meet Zac
Zac Vege has loved the rock band KISS since he was a kid — and he has the basement to prove it. His collection of all things KISS includes Ace Frehley-designed guitars and an original KISS pinball machine.
Ep : Meet Walter
Collector Walter Krueger shows host Lisa Whelchel through his giant and valuable collection of all things related to The Wizard of Oz. Walter’s collection fills his house — and a series of secret rooms!
Ep : Meet Jim P.
Guitarist Jim Peterik, formerly of Survivor, is known for hit songs like "Eye of the Tiger," as well his work with .38 Special and the Ides of March. His collection of 193 guitars contains some true rarities.
Ep : Meet Dan
Dan Thielmann has been collecting Coca-Cola items for 35 years and has an extensive collection of items dating back to the 1920s. We’ve brought along Coca-Cola collector Darrell Noble to put an estimated value on Dan’s collection — and he’s brought some Coca-Cola items from his own collection in hopes of making a trade with Dan.
Ep : Meet Jim E.
Artist Jim Engel is a cartoonist and toy designer by trade, so it’s no surprise that he is the proud owner of a comic-book art collection more than five decades in the making. See the original artwork for Marvel’s Avengers No. 53, Jack Kirby work, and original artwork from a 1977 Captain America issue. Will he trade some of it for a statue of Doc Savage?
Ep : Meet Dwight
Collector Dwight Cleveland shares his collection of more than 4,500 vintage movie posters. For decades Dwight has been collecting these rare posters, including a Czech poster for King Kong, an Italian print for Casablanca and rare Disney gems. Is he willing to trade one away?
Ep : Meet Christen
Christen Carter began collecting pinback buttons as a young girl with a Snoopy button. That hobby grew into a business, and a non-profit museum, the Busy Beaver Button Museum. Certified appraiser Judy Martin values the button collection and has brought along a rare Muhammad Ali button to make a trade.
Ep : Meet Gordon
Fire Chief Gordon Nord collects all things fire related. A firefighter for more than four decades, Gorde has been collecting fire-related items for just as long, including vintage fire extinguishers, fireboxes, helmets with shields, and vintage toys.
Ep : Meet Sean
Sean Kelly has been playing video games his whole life and collecting them for nearly as long. He turned his passion into both a retail business and a museum, the National Videogame Museum. Sean's collection includes a prototype of the Sega Neptune System and the ultra-rare Atari Video Life game cartridge in its original box.
Ep : Meet Candace
Candace Jordan has loved books since she was a young girl. Today, this former Playboy Playmate is a collector of rare books. Candace's impressive collection includes three first-edition Harry Potter books — with personal notes from J.K. Rowling to her father on the title pages!
