A couple of weeks ago we talked about a guy with the world’s largest Darth Vader collection and asked listeners about their own collections. We heard from several Star Wars fans that had everything from movie posters to costumes and we heard from sports collectors with boxes and boxes of cards, jerseys, and bobbleheads.

Now those people and other collectors here in southeast Minnesota will get the chance to show off their treasures when the American Pickers from the History Channel come to Minnesota this summer. Find out how to nominate yourself, a family member, or a friend to be on the show below.

When are the American Pickers coming to Minnesota?

The hosts of American Pickers, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, are coming to Minnesota this summer. On the show's Facebook page they said, “Look alive WISCONSINites and MINNESOTAns! The Pickers are looking for hidden treasure in your states this JULY! Reach out today and let us know who you think we should pick. NO STORES will be considered, ONLY PRIVATE COLLECTIONS.”

Has A Minnesota Collector Every Been Featured On The Show?

Yes, most recently Ed Blazek, a longtime resident of the Wadena area, who passed away in 2018 was featured. Ed had been collecting since the 1970s and his daughters nominated him because they knew some of the items would be of interest to the show’s hosts.
