Collector's CallNew time!
Sundays at 10 PMeastern (on most MeTV stations)
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.
- 7/12 10:00PMMeet Allen Stewart"Many collectors aspire to turn their collection into a museum; Allen Stewart is one step ahead of them. His Hall of Heroes superhero museum houses his collection of 65,000 comic books – all of which he’s read – as well as a wide range of memorabilia, movie props, and more. Allen shares with Lisa some of his proudest finds: a wooden Superman action figure from 1939; the 1942 comic that first cover-featured Wonder Woman; the sports car crushed by Iron Man in the first Marvel Universe movie; and a shield used onscreen by Chris Evans’ Captain America. Allen is joined by his son Kyle, who grew up with the collection. We’ve brought along Peter Przysiezny, president of Comic Book Roadshow, who will set a value on the museum’s contents. Peter has also brought a copy of the rare comic that debuted Batman’s arch-nemesis The Riddler, which Allen doesn’t have, in the hopes of making a trade with him."
- 7/19 10:00PMMeet Sheri Goldstrom"Collecting antique cars has been a family affair for Sheri Goldstrom since she was a little girl. Sheri says she learned everything from her mother, who has since passed away, and her father, who she still consults on a daily basis. About 15 years ago she built a car museum to show off their amazing collection, which ranges from a 1918 dump truck to a 1956 Chevy. Joining Sheri is her marketing director, tour guide, and stand-up comedian friend Dan Hall, who also loves old cars. We invited Chris Clyne, a close family friend of Sheri and her family's, who has his own massive collection of antique and hot-rod cars, to join us. Chris will not only try to put a dollar amount on Sheri's collection, but will also see if he can trade a 1940 Ford that he brought with him for a vehicle that is closest to Sheri and her family’s heart."
- 7/26 10:00PMMeet Bryan Watkins"Bryan Watkins has been a Lucille Ball fan since childhood; but he hasn’t just loved Lucy, he’s collected her – assembling a range of items from rare memorabilia to precious personal possessions. He shares with us some of his most treasured acquisitions, including family portraits commissioned by Lucy; a bullfighter hat worn onscreen by Desi Arnaz; a female I Love Lucy baby doll pulled from the shelves after she gave birth to a boy; and a mini-collection of in-store displays featuring Lucy as celebrity spokeswoman. Bryan is accompanied by Chelsea Dalley, his close friend and business manager; we’ve also brought along Kieta, a memorabilia expert and fellow lover of Lucy, to appraise his collection. Kieta’s got a surprise up her sleeve: a hat worn by Lucy onscreen, which she’s hoping to trade for one of Bryan’s treasures."
