Specialists from the country's leading auction houses and independent dealers from across the nation travel throughout the United States offering free appraisals of antiques and collectibles.

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras watch as owners recount tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-neglected items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds. Mark L. Walberg hosts.

"Detroit, Mich." (Hour One) - ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is in Detroit, Michigan, where host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Laura Woolley head to the Motown Museum to discuss memorabilia that hits a high note with collectors.

Highlights include a 1970 Andy Warhol poster the guest bought at his campus bookstore for around 10 dollars and had signed by Warhol himself; an early 20th-century collection of locally crafted Pewabic pottery; and a working script of "The Wizard of Oz," used on set by Bert Lahr, fondly known as the "Cowardly Lion," that is appraised for $150,000.

ROADSHOW rolled into the COBO Center and discovered some fantastic finds in the Motor City. View the photos!
