We all know a hoarder with a basement full of odd pieces. Well, American Pickers on the History Channel follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they pick through other people’s junk all across the country. Thus, we compiled a list of the biggest and most successful picks from the show. These items will have you calling up a financial advisor in hopes your own home holds treasures!
Now, this one is a bit confusing. Frank Fritz actually paid $1,000 to a customer for a polarimeter he owned already. This South Carolina native had seen the special antique polarimeter on American Pickers, so he reached out to Fritz in order to purchase it. After the man sent $300 to Fritz, he never received anything. Thus, the man filed a lawsuit, but Fritz didn’t show up at court. Alas, the judge awarded the man $1000 settlement.
