This week, the Antiques Roadshow is headed to Wilkes-Barre, where an excited crowd of memorabilia collectors are waiting to see if the items they've got are trash...or treasure.
ITEM 1: Tanner Price Photograph
This is in really lovely condition - you can tell it's authentic because Price has his one-of-a-kind "what happens when we die?" look on his face as he prepares to release the ball. It's hard to know exactly how much this particular item is worth without any details on what game this was around - the 2012 win over Virginia where Tanner went 7 of 19 for 122 yards, for instance, is a real collector's item. But all in all, a wonderful piece.
ACTUAL VALUE: TWO DOLLARS SEVENTEEN CENTS
ITEM TWO: Silas Redd Autographed Football
The unfortunate thing about these Silas Redd balls is that there are just so many of them available - for a time, Ed Orgeron was using them to pay for groceries last year. Ralph's even had a weekly special on pork chops, three Silas Redd footballs per pound. It's a nice piece for the mantle, but I'm afraid there isn't much to be made on the open market with this.
ACTUAL VALUE: THREE BITES OF PORK CHOP
ITEM THREE: Keith Mumphery Action Shot
You see this portion of the photograph just off center? Where he's catching a thrown football? That's how you know this is a fake.
ACTUAL VALUE: ONE FREE BODY MASSAGE FROM MARK DANTONIO'S FIST
ITEM FOUR: Gary Nova Signed Helmet
An interesting fact about these helmets is that Gary Nova never actually wore them on his head. He'd jam them pretty much everywhere else - strapped to his thighs, put his feet inside. Even managed to swallow a couple. But never once used in the proper way!
ACTUAL VALUE: I'LL GIVE YOU THREE BUCKS FOR THE TOWEL
Item Five: Zach Mettenberger Jersey
Items with a controversial background are always difficult to value - some buyers won't touch them, while others will pay top dollar. Mettenberger pieces are no different. But, if you can find someone willing to display a jersey that was used to strangle a homeless man to death in Biloxi, this could really fetch a handsome price.
ACTUAL VALUE: YOU BETTER NOT BE A FUCKIN' NARC, MAN
Item Six: Jeff Budzien Mini Helmet
Signed items from special teams players don't tend to fare well on the mark(choked out by Pat Fitzgerald)
ACTUAL VALUE: PAT FITZGERALD WILL SPOT YOU FOR AN HOUR OF WEIGHTLIFTING, BECAUSE PAT FITZGERALD BELIEVES YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO SUCCEED
