For Release: 2012-10-22 13:46:00On the next Kentucky Collectibles, hosts Dave Shuffett and Amy Hess take a look back at some of the most interesting item appraisals and Kentucky stories of the first season. The program airs Saturday, Nov. 17 at 4:30/3:30 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 18 at 6:30/5:30 p.m. on KET. Some of the items featured on this best-of program include: an autographed Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig baseball, a pistol believed to have been used in the War of 1812 and some of the rarest marbles in the world. KETís newest production Kentucky Collectibles tells Kentuckyís stories through prized items, whether heirloom or kitsch, that guests share with Shuffett and Hess. The hosts will also make side trips throughout Kentucky as they explore the world of antiques and collectibles at shops, boutiques and more. In May, hundreds of people brought their treasures to KETís Appraisal Fair. With cameras rolling, expert appraisers talked to participants about their possessions, assessing the value and history of items that included art, antique furniture, autographed baseballs, pottery and much more. Kentucky Collectibles is a KET production, produced by Erin Milburn Lowry and is funded in part by KETís Endowment for Kentucky Productions. More information about KET programming and education services, as well as how to support KET, can be found at ket.org.
