In Collector’s Call, Whelchel introduces some of the biggest collectors of pop culture memorabilia in the country who have amassed astonishing collections covering everything from presidential artifacts to rare books, Coca-Cola paraphernalia, The Wizard of Oz collectibles and more. Collectors include Jim Peterik the Grammy Award-winning artist of The Ides of March, formerly of Survivor and of .38 Special fame, and rare book curator Candace Jordan.
While touring these extensive collections and learning about the history of the collector’s fascination with their chosen items, Whelchel enlists the help of professional appraisers and experts to put an estimated value on what the prized collectibles are worth. With the values established, the experts will try to tempt the collectors with a trade, offering a coveted item that would be the perfect addition to their collections. The collectors must then make an agonizing choice and decide how sentimental they are about their existing piece or how much they’re willing to give up for a new addition to the collection. Will they make a trade? It’s the Collector’s Call!
