“American Pickers” Will Soon Scout Muskogee

A producer from History Channel’s “American Pickers” will visit Suddenlink-served Muskogee, Okla., in early June, in search of prime “picking” locations for the show’s stars Frank Fritz and Mike Wolfe.

Casting Associate Producer Anthony Rodriguez says they are looking for unique items, such as Civil War antiques, vintage casino gaming machines, vintage motorcycles and scooters, old advertising signs, and antique rodeo gear.

This Muskogee Phoenix article includes a more complete list of  items “American Pickers” is seeking, and instructions for contacting the producers.

‘American Pickers’ Seeks Treasures in Arkansas
