    Antiques Roadshow features a Temptations Travel Trunkq

    There was a story in the Free Press today that there are 3 upcoming episodes of Antiques Roadshow - Metro Detroit. The first is tomorrow 1/7 at 8 PM on Detroit public television and PBS. The second is 1/14 and the final 1/21.

    The article states a circa 1966 travel trunk inscribed with the Temptations name is one of the items that was discovered during their recent visit. I do not know which one of the 3 episodes will feature it. Someone bought it way back for a mere $500. It will be interesting to see what they appraise it at now. Has anyone ever seen a picture of this item? I just saw another article in the Detroit News which has a collage of pictures and if you look at picture #9 of 12 there is a picture of the owner and the trunk.

    This should be interesting. I had hoped there would be other Motown related items but this is the only one mentioned.

    VERY cool looking trunk....

    I occasionally think of the episode of ARS that featured Marvin Gaye's passport. I always was a bit suspicious of the circumstances of it's discovery, but hopefully someday it will go to the Motown Museum where it really belongs.

    I wonder why they chose a devil motif?

    That is a bloody great looking trunk. I have no idea what I could possibly use it for but I want it.

    Also, I think that is the first time I have seen the devil associated with The Tempts like that. Don't think I've seen it on any of their albums or anything.
