ALL-NEW Discovery Channel series, ALL-STAR DEALERS, Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2012

Has Richie Russek got a deal for you! From rare game-worn jerseys to vintage bats that helped shape the game of baseball, the vaunted history of sports holds untold treasures and Richie, with sons Michael and Darren, and their company Grey Flannel Auctions, is on the hunt to find ‘em all in the brand new series ALL STAR DEALERS premiering Tuesday, January 24th at 8pm e/p.

Every day, Grey Flannel receives hundreds of items. Some are all-stars, poised to reap thousands for the consigner and Richie; while others get benched, falling victim to cheap knock-off material or forged signatures. How to separate the MVPs from the DOAs? That’s up to Richie’s army of expert authenticators. SportsCenter meets CSI as the Grey Flannel team uses detailed investigation methods and state-of-the-art tools to determine what items are the real deal.

“Sports is more than just what happens on the field, it is rich with emotion and history. ALL STAR DEALERS opens the door into the world of incredible sports memorabilia where every stitch and smudge tells a story, raising the stakes for buyer and seller alike,” said Nancy Daniels, Executive Vice President of Production and Development for Discovery Channel.

From the extraordinary – a long-forgotten Mickey Mantle autographed baseball, to the extra-ordinary – Mike Tyson’s cup, get ready to play in the big leagues with these ALL STAR DEALERS.

ALL STAR DEALERS is produced for Discovery Channel by Fly on the Wall Productions. Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan are executive producers. For Discovery Channel, French Horwitz is executive producer.
