Part adventure, part history lesson, and part treasure hunt, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is a 13-time Emmy® Award-nominee and PBS' most-watched ongoing series.

Mark L. Walberg hosts.

In NYC, host Mark L. Walberg joins appraiser Nicholas M. Dawes at the Salmagundi Club to learn about porcelain mugs created by former artist members.

Highlights include a Tiffany presentation watch that was gifted to NYPD lieutenant Giuseppe Petrosino by the Italian government; a 1943 Irving Berlin manuscript that was discovered nestled in the pages of a photo album belonging to the family of the Columbia Records president; and a collection of rare 1903 American Beauty-backed tobacco baseball cards in pristine condition, appraised for $200,000.
