Colby captioned the photo saying, “Help your brother’s boat across, and your own will reach the shore.” I never trusted this quote until I fell in with the Wolfe boys. Happy Birthday to my brother from another mother, @mikewolfeamericanpicker . I’ve loved helping your boat across even the stormiest seas. In turn, Thank you for all you do to ensure that my boat reaches its shore safely. Let’s keep paddling together. We’re good at it.💗”
Since the post went live, fans have commented gushing about the two stars and wish Wolfe the happiest of birthdays. One fan wrote, “Happy Birthday Mike! I just absolutely adore the shit out of you!!!! 🎂Thank you for American Pickers!” Another fan wrote, “Happy birthday for Mike, and thank you for the show, i love it!”
It’s clear from the reaction to seeing the two together got the fans of the program happy about seeing the two of them together. It also shows how strong of a connection the duo has formed with the fans of the show, which is no small feat.
That Leather License Plate Purchase On American Pickers
We have seen Wolfe and Colby find all kinds of incredible things while antiquing over the years, but perhaps one find stands out more than the rest. Outsiders, do you remember that time Wolfe found that leather wallet and paid $1,000 big ones for it? A grand for a leather license plate that most figured would no be worth anything near that. Instead, Wolfe was right and he sold the thing for $1,200. He made $200 bucks off the deal. Not a crazy haul, but it was one of the more surprising hauls in the show’s history.
The reason the plate was worth it was because back in the day you could have different kinds of license plates, like a leather one, for instance. Wolfe got lucky, though, because this plate, in particular, was in the same family as the Oldsmobile and he was able to prove as such for the profit. Yes, back in the day, long before license plates all came with the kind of material, the only thing that mattered was whether or not there was a number for the plate. What material the number came on was less important than the number itself. Nowadays, this is no longer the case as everything is standardized on that front. A tremendous find by Wolfe, to say the least.
