Mike Wolfe

On American Pickers, Mike Wolfe and crew hit the backwoods and dirt roads from coast to coast on a mission to recycle America. The team rescues forgotten relics and restores them to their former glory—transforming one person’s trash into another’s treasure.

Over the course of the season, our American Pickers will scour the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages, and barns, meeting quirky characters and hearing their amazing stories. Part sleuths, part antiques experts, and part cultural historians, they have a knack for finding hidden treasures in the most unusual places.

Wolfe...emphasizes the autobiographical significance of each item he purchases. He is always sympathetic to sentimental value-what these pieces evoke, and what they mean to their owners.
