Episode Summary
In the series opener, Joe and his team hit the ground running. With only ten days left till the next auction, the hunt is on. The team attempts to set straight an Internet rumor that one of the original sharks from the movie Jaws has been on display in a junkyard to attract visitors. Joe and his right hand man, Brian, journey to the junkyard only to discover a sun-damaged and poorly taken care of shark prominently on display in the desert sun. Next, an avid collector of Lost in Space memorabilia has traveled to Profiles in History from the East Coast with hopes of adding to his collection. Joe meets with him and showcases a handful of items. A thoroughly impressed collector leaves the showroom but was it enough to entice the collector into attending the upcoming auction? Then in Chicago, Joe investigates the claim of a young man alleged to have the screen-used carpet bag from the 1960s Disney classic, Mary Poppins. The bag has been in his family his whole life and was purportedly won in a promotional raffle during the film’s release nearly fifty years ago. Joe rescues the bag from a dark, dank basement with the hopes that it may indeed be real.
