Danielle Colby
In Tears
Ever since the premiere of "American Pickers" in 2010, Viewers have loved going around the country with Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, while Danielle Colby holds down the fort back at the shop. When Fritz was let go from the show, Colby started going on the road with Wolfe to look for finds, and there is one in particular that brought her to tears.
In Season 22, Episode 9, "A Record Deal," Danielle Colby traveled to Pennsylvania and found what she believed was very rare Beatles memorabilia — the album “Yesterday and Today,” a poster, and a letter written by the Beatles' Capitol Records Distribution Corporation. She bought it all for $1,200, thinking she'd hit the jackpot, but that was not the case.
In the end, the appraiser told her they were worth $700 — a far cry from the $20,000 she was hoping for. She tried to put a positive spin on it, saying, "It's better than nothing I suppose," but in a phone conversation with Mike Wolfe, she told him how she really felt: "I took a dive, it sucks, it's not good. I'm about to cry. I feel bad about myself."
