Program Description

901, 1/3/2005: In ANTIQUES ROADSHOW's 2005 season opener from St. Paul, Minnesota, host Lara Spencer visits the Antique and Classic Boat Society at Lake Minnetonka and the workshop of professional restorer, Todd Warner, to learn about the "jewel" of antique motorboats — the runabout. At the St. Paul RiverCentre, ROADSHOW experts navigate through a flotilla of exciting finds including an unusually elaborate 1904 Gustav Stickley armchair; a rare and extremely valuable matching pair of Maria Martinez pots; and a one-of-a-kind 1914 Patek-Philippe pocket watch featuring a perpetual calendar, chimes, phases of the moon — and estimated to be worth a whopping $250,000.

902, 1/10/2005: ANTIQUES ROADSHOW continues its sojourn in St. Paul, Minnesota — the land of 10,000 lakes. In fact, the lakes total 11,842, and back at the St. Paul RiverCentre, appraisers are awash in a sea of antiques and collectibles, including a pristine 1948 Babe Ruth caricature watch; a unique collection of autographed Marilyn Monroe photos shot in Milwaukee; and a rare piece of local history: a 1951 Minnesota Miller's baseball uniform worn by Willie Mays, valued at $60,000 to $80,000.

903, 1/17/2005: Back at the St. Paul RiverCentre, appraisers sort through a dizzying array of antiques, including this curious example of late-19th-century political propaganda from the 1896 presidential campaign between the famed populist William Jennings Bryan and the eventual winner, William McKinley — appraised today at about $2,500 — well over its original "face value."
