The producers of History Channel's hit series, Pawn Stars and American Restoration are currently casting for a new series based in Baltimore that will be “100% dedicated to sports memorabilia and the people who collect it”.
New York-based Left Field Pictures is looking for collectors and others who are looking to sell pieces of memorabilia that have a backstory and historical significance. They are seeking anyone living in and around the Baltimore-Washington D.C. area.
The show, which is currently attached to a major cable network will be set at Robbie’s First Base in Baltimore, a place described by the show’s creators as follows:
Whether you’re looking for a Babe Ruth autographed baseball or an autographed Sidney Crosby worn-jersey, there’s no better place to find it than ROBBIE’S FIRST BASE in Baltimore, Maryland. A family-run shop, Robbie’s has built itself into a booming business and collectors, professional athletes and sports nuts can’t seem to get (or buy) enough of it. At Robbie’s, sports drives more than the family business; it instills a passion that brings out the best and worst in everyone. The atmosphere is akin to a sports barbershop, because when it comes to sports, everyone has an opinion. Every incredible item bought and sold at Robbie’s tells a story and prompts a sports debate, where both buyers and sellers spit stats and opinions like a sports radio show. When the item is right for the customer, all of the big arguments can add up to big dollars!
Casting producer Danielle Gervais tells Sports Collectors Daily that they currently have plenty of baseball items and are now looking for other sports memorabilia.
She is asking anyone with items they might like to offer to email a picture of the item, a brief description of what it is and why it is special, and how it was obtained. Emails should be sent to: [email protected]
There is no word yet on exactly where or when the series will air.
