Discovery goes ‘Pop’

'Coolest Stuff' memorabilia show hits the road

Discovery Channel is taking the “Antiques Roadshow” concept and adding a contempo twist with “Pop Nation: America’s Coolest Stuff,” bowing Oct. 1.

Experts will appraise such pop culture memorabilia as Cabbage Patch Kids dolls and Beatles lunchboxes, giving collectors the chance to keep the item, sell it for cash or try to vend it online.

Show will tape June 4 in Baltimore; June 18 in Austin, Texas; July 2 in Long Beach, Calif.; and July 9 in Portland, Ore.

Collectors are encouraged to bring out their stored pop culture treasures, from David Cassidy T-shirts to Care Bear flasks, so long as they can carry the item and pre-register at Discovery.com/popnation.
