TRAVEL CHANNEL'S ORIGINAL SERIES "BAGGAGE BATTLES" RETURNS FOR SEASON THREE ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15 AT 9:00 PM ET/PT

Three Teams of Auction Experts Back on the Hunt for Bigger Profits with Higher Stakes

CHEVY CHASE, MD (September 23, 2013) - Let's get ready to rumble! Auction specialists Billy "The Dealer" Leroy," Mark "The Hustler" Meyer, and Laurence & Sally Martin - "The Wild Cards," are back for a new season of Travel Channel's original series "Baggage Battles" premiering with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, October 15 at 9:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. In season three, the popular weekly half-hour series continues to give viewers a glimpse into the very profitable business of bidding, buying and reselling of unclaimed items from auctions around the world including airport, freight and shipping, estate, police and seizure, and specialty auctions. The stakes are higher for the expert teams of savvy buyers who still don't know if it's junk or jackpot until they win the bid.

"This new season of 'Baggage Battles' features our experts attending a greater variety of auctions than ever - here and abroad," said Andy Singer, General Manager, Travel Channel. "From iconic historic cowboy articles to important pop culture memorabilia, the competition and the stakes have never been higher for Billy, Mark, Sally and Laurence."

In the first half-hour episode of the back-to-back premieres, the auction specialists saddle-up to attend a Cowboy Auction in Livermore, California. The items up for grabs come from all over the northern part of the state. From authentic Western wear, cowboy hats and spurs, to art, lassos and leather trunks, this Wild West auction holds a variety of goldmines the buyers are prospecting to find. Leroy, Meyer and the Martins have traveled for their own personal gold rushes, but they have some stiff competition from another auction specialist Traci Lombardo, who drops in on several auctions featured this season.

In the second episode, the experts travel into the southern heat for an auction in Jacksonville, Florida. One of the biggest cities in the country, Jacksonville is home to a diverse estate auction that features everything from Americana and tools to pop culture collectibles and sealed boxes. Leroy, Meyer and the Martins must separate trash from treasure as they do battle under the Florida sun.

"Baggage Battles" is produced by MY Tupelo Entertainment for Travel Channel. For MY Tupelo, executive producers are Michael Yudin and Joe Townley. For Travel Channel, executive producer is Daniel A. Schwartz.
