Frank FritzFrank Fritz

Frank started picking early; collecting rocks and beer cans as a kid. As his collection of “staples” grew, so did his knowledge of antiques.

For many years, Frank worked as a fire and safety inspector, leaving his passion for antiques, junk and anything with an engine as a hobby. Soon enough, he discovered that his keen eye and attention to detail led to finding more than just junk – he was finding treasure amongst trash – a revelation that allowed him to turn a hobby into a career.

These days, he spends most of his time on the road with his partner Mike Wolfe, digging for treasure in barns, garages and junkyards across America on HISTORY Channel’s hit show, American Pickers.

Even-tempered and affable, he has a way with potential sellers and a knack for putting out fires: Mike calls him the bearded charmer.

With their complementary personalities and shared love of picking, Frank and Mike make the perfect team.
