Collector’s Call, the series that delves into personal pop culture collections, returns for a second season on MeTV this Sunday, January 12. Until then, you can binge the first 13-episode season at CollectorsCallTV.com.

Hosted by Lisa Whelchel (Blair Warner on The Facts of Life), the first season of Collector’s Call featured collections ranging from Winnie the Pooh and The Wizard of Oz to Coca-Cola paraphernalia and comic books.

Here’s the season one trailer:

Season two will kick off with a movie, TV and music collectibles from Chicago radio personality Mancow, including what’s touted as the largest collection of Brady Bunch memorabilia in the US. And Greg Brady himself, Barry Williams, pops up as a guest star.

Mancow will also show off such items as Dr. Smith’s gun from Lost In Space.

Collector’s Call, however, isn’t just about showing off pop culture mini-museums. In each episode, an expert appraises the collection’s value, and then offers the collector’s “call” – whether or not to trade one prized possession for an elusive, coveted item brought in by the appraiser. (In this Sunday’s episode, Williams will also offer Mancow a Brady memento).

Season two of Collector’s Call will air Sundays at 9:30 pm ET on MeTV, just before the channel’s new combo of The Flintstones and The Honeymooners.

The Facts of Life, The Brady Bunch and Lost in Space also air on MeTV: The Facts of Life weekdays at 5:30 am, The Brady Bunch in a two-hour block, Sundays at noon, and Lost in Space, Saturday night/Sunday mornings at 1 am.

You can watch MeTV free over the air via an antenna connected to your TV set, as well as on many cable systems. To find your local channel number, visit MeTV’s Where to Watch page.

1 thought on “‘Collector’s Call’ Binge”

  1. I absolutely love Collectors Call! It is one of those shows that i look forward to watching every Sunday night. I think my favorite part of the show, is when they attempt to make the trade. Being an avid sports card collector for over 40 years, i really enjoy seeing collections of all types of things. I would love to see an episode of a sport card collection on a future episode.Lisa is wonderful, and i hope the show continues for many years to come!
