The first of three Antiques Roadshow Episodes shot in Pittsburgh air on Monday

I'm excited to see the discoveries people from the region brought in for PBS's Antique's Roadshow last year.

Finds included

A "folk art", carved wooden devil bought for $10 which survived a flooded basement, valued at $4000-$5000

A Louisville Slugger bat used in a game in 1960 by Roberto Clemente and signed by the baseball legend. Valued at $25,000

A First Edition set by Charles Darwin brought in by a West Virgina man valued at $284,000

A Rockwell Kent Painting valued at $150,000 -$200,000

A 17th century Chinese carved rhinoceros horn cup bought for $1, valued at $350,000 - $400,000

Story in The Pittsburgh Post Gazette

8 p.m. Monday on WQED, Channel 13
