Phil has nearly 40 years' experience in the collectibles trade. Growing up as a second-generation book and stamp specialist he turned his interest in the collectibles field into one of the top collectibles auction houses in the country. He has owned and operated Philip Weiss Auctions for almost 20 years.

Philip Weiss Auctions holds a minimum of 11 auctions yearly, each containing 800-plus lots of collectibles. The auctions specialize in toys, trains, dolls, toy soldiers, stamps, coins, rare books and autographs, comics, comic art, animation art, military memorabilia, Worlds Fair and historical material, posters, and political and Hollywood memorabilia. Phil has worked as a consultant for many of the country's top auction galleries. In addition to general collectibles auctions, the gallery has handled many specialty sales and name collections, including Baseball great Billy Martin's estate. In collaboration with Sotheby's he had the pleasure of handling a large portion of the F.H. Griffith toy collection.

Phil has also contributed articles on the field of collectibles to many of the major trade publications. Phil contributes time on a regular basis doing auctions for local charities as well as free appraisals to raise money for senior centers and clubs.

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is an antiques appraisal event and television production; we do not buy or sell objects, and conducting any business with an appraiser at the ANTIQUES ROADSHOW event is strictly forbidden.

If you decide to do business with an appraiser who has appeared on ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, please keep in mind these tips before consigning or selling an item:

  • Get more than one referral and check references
  • Get valuations of your item from more than once source
  • Compare options between different types of sellers, i.e., a dealer versus an auction house
  • If you are considering consigning an object for auction, be sure to inquire how the item will be priced, the size of the fee, and the expected amount of time the process may take. Find out what will happen if it doesn't sell.
  • Check the appraiser's professional associations (such as International Society of Appraisers, American Appraisers Association, National Auctioneers Association)
  • Consult an attorney before signing a contract
  • Whatever kind of transaction you decide to enter into, always get a detailed written receipt for your records

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW’s pool of experts are professionals with a wide range of experience in the antiques, fine art and collectibles community, and they are from a diverse background of auctioneers, dealers and appraisers.

All ROADSHOW appraisers are independent volunteers who donate their time and expertise to PBS and who pay their own expenses to be on the show. All business transactions are independent from ANTIQUES ROADSHOW.
