Program Description

It's a blast from the not-so-distant past when ANTIQUES ROADSHOW presents "Tomorrow's Antiques," a nostalgia-filled special edition celebrating the rockin' 50s, psychedelic 60s, and funky 70s. This vintage collection of ROADSHOW appraisals proves it's not just 100-year-old antiques that are worth collecting for fun and profit. Assembled from ROADSHOW's extensive archive, "Tomorrow's Antiques" features such oldies but goodies as: a 1955 Dodgers World Series baseball that could hit $4,000 to $6,000; a portfolio of Ansel Adams' photographs that could see $30,000 to $50,000; a paper Campbell's Soup dress valued at a hearty $1,500; and a costume worn by Elvis Presley, appraised to the tune of $15,000 to $100,000.
