Simeon is a lifelong pop culture, film, music, art, history and sports enthusiast, who has been appraising collections, curating auctions and exhibitions, and coordinating culturally relevant events for the past 20 years.

It’s with much enjoyment and enthusiasm that Simeon continues to draw on his experience and expertise to help people and institutions who wish to learn more about their own collections, and who require assistance with collection acquisition or placement. Among his notable curated events was the groundbreaking Punk Sale held at Christie’s Auction House in New York City, 2008. This event celebrated the Punk aesthetic; its cultural significance as both an historic music genre and a valid and extremely influential art movement with its distinct attitude, design and ephemera.

Other recent sales have included The Vader Project at Freeman's Auction House in July, 2010, as well as sales featuring Street Art and Designer Toys.

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.
