American Pickers

Post by Corey Fantoccini » Sun Sep 27, 2020 10:41 pm

Just saw an episode of "AMERICAN PICKERS" where the fellows visit "Tom and Joe," brothers who, with their father, are insatiable collectors with multiple houses to hold their stuff. Joe collects coin-op games while Tom collects mannequins. At one point, Tom claims to have over 1000.

Some of the mannequins that were on camera, as well as some rooms they were staged in, looked very familiar. Was he one of the collectors who regularly posted to the various mannequin collector groups on Yahoo back in the day? If so, it was kind of nice to see him in a setting that made him look like a friendly eccentric and not, say, like a kook as certain other documentaries involving dollers have done, though the Pickers still talked about their discomfort about having so many eyes looking at them when they walked among his collection. Anyone got more details?
