Default American Pickers

Pickers has been "must see TV" for me since its inception in 2010. Frank hasn't been seen in two years. There's plenty of "he said, she said" on the interwebs. No matter what the real reason is for Frank being gone, I'm sad. This show will never be the same without the "bearded charmer." I hope the best for Frank.

I too have watched this show forever...and I love it! Been seeing the same back and forth on the web...seems like frank had some health issues and personal problems...and maybe inconvenienced production of the show...meanwhile mike replaced frank with his bro and a few other friends.

It's weird seeing the same conversation that mike and frank once had in the van...reincarnated with the new characters.

I also will miss frank but I still enjoy the show.

I believe Frank has Crohn's Disease, or some form of IBD. I have it. I have mild symptoms, but my doctor says they will only get worse with time. I lost 5 feet of intestine in 2020 due to a perforated bowel. IBD is a nasty family of diseases often referred to as the invisible disease. So if that's true, being on the road would be a horrible place when you gotta go, and gotta go immediately. But I do miss him on the show, too.

I enjoy watching the show even though all picks are pre-planned and pre-screened. It's like Pawn Stars where all "customers" and items are checked out ahead of time or Storage Wars where some of the lockers are "salted" with expensive items. They all have "producers" who have to make the show interesting.

But I too hope Frank can return to the show.

I watch the shows most times and Pawn Stars.
Just a few shows ago, maybe a few weeks i was watching and heard i think he had 'back surgery'. This was when he had a furniture looking hippy Jon or something.

Off topic, but does it ever surprise you guys that they never discover old baseball cards, or any other cards? If they have, I have not seen those episodes.
We have a CDN pickers show up here and the same goes with it. Never any cards but I did see a Dick Sisler (I think?) bat one time that neither guy bought due to the ask.

im guessing they know nothing about them and dont care...it's not their area of interest. They've purchased a sports collectible or 2 over the years...I kinda recall a cardboard advertising piece.

But...imagine the bb cards some of these people might have???? Houses untouched for generations!!!

I'm thinking they must, at least occasionally, come across them but maybe that's something they don't want to disclose as maybe, again, for some reason, it doesn't fit the theme of the show?

Some of the rooms/shops/collections they come across I can't help but think there must be something sports card related in some of those? Seems almost impossible to me they don't sometimes?

They found a beat up version of the Dean brothers tobacco advertisement. That was the first time I ever saw it. It was appraised by the St Louis Cardinals HOF curator.

Yes, Frank has Crohns. As Tim said, it’s nasty. I had colon cancer and some of the same nastiness applies.

Yes, Pickers is planned and produced. I still don’t think it even comes close to the phoniness of Pawn Stars.

I’m watching a 2010 episode, as we speak. Frank has recently said he and Mike were never really close. Listening to their banter in the van, I find that hard to believe. It sure always seemed genuine.

Anyway, brother Robbie, Jersey Jon, Danielle or Mefford can’t hold a candle to Frank. I think this is the beginning of the end.

I actually remember an episode where they found a few monster/shoe boxes of 50's-70's cards. I don't think they were in top loaders or even penny sleeves and Frank bought them for $100 per box. I remember Mike saying that Frank was a "card guy" or something like that.

I read somewhere Frank had back surgery around the time he 'left' the show and was never asked back.

I always liked Frank - he seemed just a little 'sleazy' but not too much - almost in a comical way. The 'scandalous' online pics of him assisting/judging a wet tshirt contest early in the show's run endeared him to me as well...lol.

I’ve laughed out loud, more than a few times, at the Mike and Frank banter in the van.

Watched a bunch of newer episodes recently, and I can't stand how Mike always makes a point of specifically saying, "I appreciate you!!" instead of "Thanks" or whatever. He's obviously trying to make it his catchphrase and it's really frickin' annoying. Sorta like that "Yuuup!" guy on the 'Storage Wars.'

he's been saying that forever...basically saying "I appreciate you agreeing to sell me this Blank for way less than it's worth!"

I agree it rings of fake sincerity...although I think he's genuinely a decent guy.

Couldn't agree more to your statement or the one you were replying to.

Regardless of all the negatives, this show is actually fairly watchable. Pawn Stars needed to go away years ago. Their smugness is a cancer. I can't believe that they believe they possess more than very rudimentary knowledge. The producers have clearly been blowing smoke and it's stoked the fires of some highly undeserved egos.

I could be wrong, but I think that "I appreciate ya" might be a southern thing. I'm a Californian and I've done some work in Hot Springs AR and Lexington KY in the past few years and that phrase is very common in both places.

You're probably right.... but why not use better grammar and explain the sentiment? "I appreciate you" is extremely vague and says little. If he was specific to warranted interactions and said something like "I appreciate you working on this price with me", or "I appreciate your knowledge about this item", etc, that would make much more sense. You appreciate specifics about someone or something, but as a rule, you do not just "appreciate" in general.

"I appreciate ya" begs the further question... "well, what about me do you appreciate??" Everything??

was watching last night and I noticed Mikes brother...whatever his name is...saying "I appreciate it" after striking a deal. I stand by my belief that Mike is trying to sound sincere...which I believe is somewhat authentic.

Now don't ever...set foot on my lawn AGAIN!!!!
