Rollsign Gallery's Web Series
TRANSPORTATION TREASURES is Rollsign Gallery's new web series on YouTube!
Alot of you have asked over the years, how I get the stuff that I buy, sell and collect. Ride along as
this web series takes you behind the scenes, with me into the yards as I get this stuff. It is all RAW.
There is no production crew following me around, there's no pre-contact with location owners,
there's no multiple takes of what's filmed. Everything you see and everything I do is simply filmed
on a camera that fits in my pocket, and everything I say is "off the cuff" and ad lib.
This won't be like it is on television. You'll see everything from dud picks up to amazing finds. You'll
see extremes from going out on sunny days all the way to in the rain or in snow. You'll see picks
that are very easy, to hard core ones where there is blood, sweat, and even heat exhaustion.
"One thing I've learned in over 20 years of doing this... You never know what you'll find next!"
