Batter up for Discovery's new series 'All Star Dealers' Grey Flannel Auctions' experts know sports memorabilia. In Discovery's new series premiering Jan. 24, viewers can watch Grey Flannel's experts in action as they hunt for rare & valuable sports items.
News-Antique.com - Jan 13,2012 - SILVER SPRING, Md. - From rare game-worn jerseys to vintage bats that helped shape the game of baseball, the vaunted history of sports holds untold treasures. Grey Flannel Auctions' Rich Russek, with sons Michael and Darren, are on the hunt to find them in the brand new series ALL STAR DEALERS, which premieres on Tuesday, January 24th at 8pm Eastern and Pacific time.
Grey Flannel receives all kinds of items in a typical day's work. Some are all-stars, poised to reap thousands for the consignor, while others get benched - sometimes because they're knock-offs, forgeries or not all that collectible. How to separate the MVPs from the DOAs? That’s up to Richie’s army of expert authenticators.
SportsCenter meets CSI as the Grey Flannel team uses detailed investigation methods and state-of-the-art tools to determine which items are the real deal.
“Sports is more than just what happens on the field, it is rich with emotion and history. ALL STAR DEALERS opens the door into the world of incredible sports memorabilia where every stitch and smudge tells a story, raising the stakes for buyer and seller alike,” said Nancy Daniels, Executive Vice President of Production and Development for Discovery Channel.
From the extraordinary -- a long-forgotten Mickey Mantle autographed baseball, to the extra-ordinary - Mike Tyson’s cup -- get ready to play in the Big Leagues with these ALL STAR DEALERS.
ALL STAR DEALERS is produced for Discovery Channel by Fly on the Wall Productions. Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan are executive producers. For Discovery Channel, French Horwitz is executive producer.
