Do I have to bring an item to be appraised, or can I just go to watch?  You must have tickets for this Antiques Roadshow event, and, you must bring at least one item for appraisal.  But, no more than two items for appraisal per ticket.

Can I bring my Great Great Grandfather Joe's gun to be appraised?  Unfortunately, firearms are not allowed in this Antiques Roadshow event for appraisal.  But I'm sure you have many other interesting antiques around the house you're curious about, right?

How can I be featured on Antiques Roadshow?  According to Antiques Roadshow FAQ section, producers choose based on the item history, rarity, value and the guest story as well as the appraiser’s insights.
