"AUCTION KINGS" RETURNS TO DISCOVERY CHANNEL APRIL 25
SEASON THREE INTRODUCES AUTHENTICATOR JAMIE BREESE AND THE GARRETT BROTHERS
(Silver Spring, Md.) - Paul Brown and his intrepid Gallery 63 crew in Atlanta are back for an all-new season of Discovery Channel's AUCTION KINGS, returning Wednesday, April 25 at 10PM ET/PT.
Paul brings big energy and a sharp, well trained eye to the auction floor as a wide range of rare treasures and off-the-wall objects cross his path this season. Paul's the go-to guy for buyers from across the U.S. and around the world who seek a range of extraordinary items that can only be found at a Gallery 63 auction.
Season three opens up with two back-to-back episodes featuring exciting and entertaining auctions of items ripped from the headlines of pop-history, including a commemorative John Wayne gun collection, a 1917 Model T Bucket Roadster, an Omnibot 2000, and a circa 1890 Iron Maiden. Are they real? What are they worth? Who are the buyers and sellers? What's the winning bid? Each week Paul and his AUCTION KINGS crew, Cindy Shook, Jon Hammond, and Delfino Ramos, assist in digging into each item's history with the help of experts, breathe new life into some objects, and answer all these questions, and more!
Joining AUCTION KINGS this season is Jamie Breese, the audacious and cheeky London-based authenticator and collectibles expert seen regularly across the UK on networks and programs that include BBC, ITV and GMTV. He's the author of the one stop best-selling antiques guide, Make a Mint, and provides indispensable knowledge of all things collectible. Also joining the series are pickers Ernie and Steve Garrett, aka the Garrett Brothers, an outspoken and outlandish duo who venture around the country and hunt down overlooked treasures from out-of-the way places.
Other historic and mind-blowing items that can be seen on AUCTION KINGS this season include an authentic Elvis Presley gold and diamond bracelet, a document signed by President Abraham Lincoln, a French and Indian war cannon, a 1955 mint condition Ford Thunderbird, a 1960s Barbie doll, a rare Harley Davidson bicycle, a 1985 Rolls Royce, an 18th century ship's cannon, a Hudson automobile, a 1923 Martin 0-18 guitar, an authentic confederate sword, and boxing gloves signed by legends Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. Also this season there will be an auction for Oliver North's Navy dress sword, with a special appearance by Oliver North.
AUCTION KINGS is produced for Discovery Channel by Authentic Entertainment, Inc., where Lauren Lexton, Tom Rogan and Jeffrey Weaver are Executive Producers. Craig Coffman serves as Executive Producer for Discovery Channel.
