Frank Fritz is the co-star of the popular show American Pickers.  He grew up in Iowa and was good friends with his co-host of the show, Mike Wolfe.  They met in junior high school and shared a common interest in old things.   Frank loved collecting beer cans and rocks as a child, but as he got older he became interested in collecting vintage toys and cars, and anything with a motor.  He was working full time as a fire and safety inspector before leaving that career behind to pick full time.

In 2010, he and Mike’s show American Pickers began airing on the History Channel network.  The first show had over 3 million viewers and to date it is one of the top ranked shows on the History Channel, at times with over 5 million viewers per episode.  This documentary type show follows the pair on the road as they search old barns, farms, garages, and buildings for cast-off treasure.

In addition to the popular show, Frank is partners with Mike in their shops, Antique Archaeology.  The two locations, one in Iowa and one in Tennessee, are where they clean up or refurbish the items they’ve found and purchased and sell them.  They travel thousands of miles a year around the U.S., mostly in the midwest and south.  From the popularity of the show, to the two shops he and Mike are partner in, we estimate Frank Fritz to have a net worth of approximately $3,000,000 (GBP 1,900,000).

So how much is $3 million dollars really?

It’s no secret they put a lot of miles on their white Mercedes van.  If Frank were in the market to replace it, he could buy 75 of them.  No need to worry about mileage then.  But if he wanted to be a bit more reserved with his money, he could purchase almost 118 of the new Chevrolet Express vans.  Regardless of which new vans he chooses, we know he’ll still be able to fit a whole lot of good finds in them.
