Joe Maddalena owns Profiles in History, the world's largest auctioneer of movie, television and pop culture artifacts. To find the very best items, Joe and his crew scour the globe, hunting for the original car from "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" or the hat of the Wicked Witch of the West or some other memorable prop. There's plenty of variety in the work -- one day Joe is in a dusty basement poring over old boxes, the next he's browsing the well-kept personal mementoes of one of Hollywood's biggest stars.

Buyers in the Atlanta area searching for those one-of-a-kind items -- a vampire hunting kit, anyone? -- know exactly where to go, but the quantity is always limited and the prices fluid. "Auction Kings" follows the action at Gallery 63, a storied auction house in Hotlanta with a reputation for selling both bizarre and high-end items. Its owner, Paul Brown, manages his feisty staff and mingles with his customers, bidders and buyers who come from all walks of life.

Following the colorful personalities who make a living buying items at auctions is a favorite subject of TV producers. "Baggage Battles," essentially a replica of A&E Network's "Storage Wars" minus the storage units, depicts the process of "auction specialists" bidding for, buying and reselling property found in unclaimed luggage. It features three teams of bidders: Laurence and Sally Martin, who have appeared on "Storage Wars" appraising items in their California antiques store; young entrepreneur Mark Meyer, who owns a Long Island, N.Y., thrift store; and Billy Leroy, the proprietor of Billy's Antiques and Props, a famous eclectic prop and antique store in the Bowery neighborhood of Manhattan.

Garage sales are an old-school waste of time, at least in the eyes of the treasure hunters featured in this real-life series. Each half-hour episode follows a group of bidders looking to strike it rich by buying repossessed storage units. They're at once detectives and gamblers, as they get only a quick flashlight-aided peek inside the units before they decide if they want to make a bid, and for how much. It's a high-stakes game that can pay off big time -- one featured collector bought a unit for $800 and sold its contents for a $40,000 profit -- or leave one sifting through the equivalent of trash.

Car fanatic Philip Glenister teams with designer Ant Anstead on a mission to find classic cars in not-so-classic shape, fix them up and then auction them off. Glenister finds vehicles that he can get for the right price and brings them into the shop for Anstead to restore. Since Glenister gets to know each seller during the bargaining process, he uses stories about the car as inspiration to help inform Anstead's overhaul. After the front-to-back transformation is complete, the guys take the car for a spin. At the end of the season, the finished cars are sent to a public auction to see if all of the hard work pays off.

Desert Valley Auto Parts in Arizona doesn't merely sell original parts to car collectors and restoration junkies. The McClure family business certainly can do that all day long, what with more than 10,000 rust-free vehicles parked at their 100-plus acre facility. But what really gets the McClures and their crew excited is finding cars to restore themselves, and sometimes they are located right on their lot. After getting them up to speed and back on the road, they sell them at auction.
Cosplay -- the practice of dressing up as characters from movies, books or video games -- is a popular activity in the sci-fi community. People transform themselves into pop culture-inspired creations, often with an emphasis on anime characters. Usually, it's just for fun and playful contests, but on "Cosplay Melee," the perfect costume can be worth $10,000 to a cosplayer. Each episode sees four contestants creating full costumes and character origin stories, then hitting the runway in an attempt to impress the judges, who are world-class cosplayer LeeAnna Vamp and costume creator Christian Beckman, by looking -- and acting -- the part. Whoever the judges feel most embodies the character is proclaimed the winner and earns the grand prize. Actress Yvette Nicole Brown ("Community") hosts the show that Syfy says compares to reality show "Face Off" but "with a triple dose of adrenaline."
