Pop culture specialist and longtime appraiser Simeon Lipman joins the boys to talk about his gig as the go-to guy when it comes to sports memorabilia, the first thing he saw when he joined “Antiques Roadshow”, what you can find in his own personal collection (and why), the hot genre people are buying up, one of the most unique bidding wars he’s even been on the sidelines for and that time he was asked to help sell body parts.
