#1 Sideshow Banners

The hosts picked up some sweet sideshow banners at an old amusement park and valued the entire lot at only $700. They later discovered that the banners were worth closer to $5,000...each.
Fritz and Wolfe returned to Neal Fehnel, the man they purchased the banners from, and gave him an additional $5,000. Some feel they should have paid him an extra $5,000 for each banner, since that was what they'd be able to sell them for.

#2 Custom Von Dutch XAVW Motorcycle

The villainous pair paid $21,000 to pick up this custom bike made up of a combination of Harley-Davidson and Volkswagen parts, which they described as a "holy grail item." While $21,000 sounds like a lot, the item is so rare, it is easily worth significantly more than that. Most people only know Von Dutch due to an unfortunate trucker hat trend in the early '00s. However, Kenny Howard, or "Von Dutch" as he was known, was famous in the automotive world for pin-striping classic cars and putting together custom muscle cars and motorcycles.
