'Antiques Roadshow' Screws Up, Values Old High School Art Project At $50,000 (Video)
Posted by Paige on May 11 2016
On a recent episode of the beloved "Antiques Roadshow," a very interesting and unique sculpture was valued at around $50,000. The only problem? It turned out to be someone's old high school art project, probably worth at $5 at most.
A viewer of the show recognized the highly valued object as his own art project from high school back in the 1970's. What looks to us like a piece only a mother would find valuable apparently fooled even the pros. That's quite the compliment!
Is this a fine art look-alike or just a huge flop on the part of the "professionals?" Watch and let us know!
