ANTIQUES ROADSHOW ANNOUNCES SEASON 17

11/12/2012 1:00 PM -

 

PBS Series Premieres in 2013 With Another Million-Dollar Discovery
Monday, January 7, 2013 at 8/7C PM on PBS

On January 7, 2013 ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, PBS’s most-watched primetime series, returns for Season 17 with its signature cross-country treasure hunt and another million-dollar discovery.

With 21 brand new episodes and six newly-restored episodes of “Vintage Roadshow,” ROADSHOW shares history through America’s untold stories. Host Mark L. Walberg welcomes viewers to join the journey through attics and basements, garage sales and dumpsters, starting Monday, January 7 at 8/7C on PBS. ROADSHOW’s Season 17 episodes will be followed at 9/8C by MARKET WARRIORS, the newest adventure for treasure seekers, making Monday nights on PBS a destination spot for all things antiques.

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW’s first Season 17 stop is Corpus Christi, Texas, which yielded the highest-value appraisal of the season: a lost Diego Rivera painting, created when the artist was only 18 years old, valued at $800,000 - $1,000,000.

From Corpus Christi, ROADSHOW heads to Boston, Massachusetts; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Cincinnati, Ohio; Rapid City, South Dakota; and Seattle, Washington. The season’s three specials include “Junk in the Trunk 3,” where viewers will be treated to never-before-seen appraisals from each of the Season 17 cities; “Finders Keepers,” which profiles items that were discovered in the most memorable of ways, and “Survivors,” featuring treasures that survived natural disasters, fires and more! “Vintage Roadshow” episodes, shows from the ROADSHOW archive featuring updated appraisal information and historical facts, will return for a second season.

• In Myrtle Beach, a guest’s signed letter from Abraham Lincoln - one of the few written by Lincoln in 1860, as he prepared for the election - is valued at $50,000 – $70,000.

• In Cincinnati, historically known as a baseball town, ROADSHOW discovered a 1963 Mickey Mantle bat appraised for $15,000.

• In Rapid City, furniture took center stage in the Mount Rushmore state when a suite of Thomas Molesworth pieces from the famous “Ranch A” are valued at $150,000 – $210,000.

• In Seattle, the sparkles of jewelry caught ROADSHOW’s attention. A diamond and enamel wedding jewel was valued at $50,000 – $60,000 and a 1920s sapphire and diamond brooch weighed in at $30,000.
