Program Description

613: ANTIQUES ROADSHOW kicks off its Indianapolis visit with a tour of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, home of the biggest single-day sporting event on the planet — The Indianapolis 500. The Indianapolis Convention Center is the site of a different kind of excitement when appraisers show off an exotic 19th-century French bronze sculpture, a German bible printed near Philadelphia in 1776, and a rare N.C. Wyeth painting valued at $250,000.

614: When ANTIQUES ROADSHOW continues its visit to Indianapolis, Indiana, host Dan Elias takes viewers to the final resting place of bank robber John Dillinger, poet James Whitcomb Riley, and former US president Benjamin Harrison: the Crown Hill Cemetery. Back at the Indianapolis Convention Center, ROADSHOW appraisers examine a variety of prized possessions, including a 1920s-era Little Orphan Annie Halloween costume, an Empire-style marble-top table handcrafted in Italy, and a rare portrait of a dog, which could fetch $4,000 to $6,000.

615: While in Indianapolis, Indiana, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW host Dan Elias visits the largest children's museum in the world, the Indianapolis Children's Museum. ROADSHOW appraisers at the Indianapolis Convention Center unearth a number of interesting items, including a unique Russian porcelain basketwork bowl, commissioned by Catherine the Great; a pair of masterfully handcrafted mallard duck decoys; and original illustrations by science-fiction pioneer Frank Paul, appraised at $30,000 to $40,000.
