In American Pickers, One Episode Stands Above The Rest

Mike Wolfe has had a ton of adventures over the years on "American Pickers." He's traveled to dozens of states, visiting unique and interesting people as he searches through their property to find his next big score. A lot of the time, there may just be a ton of junk in the way, but Wolfe knows a good find when he sees it. From antique vehicles to vintage signs, Wolfe can turn a profit on pretty much anything from his shop, and it's led to a lot of standout moments over the past decade the show has been on the air. 

With hundreds of episodes to the show's name, it's only natural for many of them to blend together. With practically the same formula used every time, it takes a real leap of faith for an episode to break the mold and stand out. However, it seems like one episode, in particular, has done precisely that and earned rave reviews from audiences.

What's Inside the Vault? has a ton of praise

If you want to see one of the best "American Pickers" episodes out there, you need to turn your attention to Season 14, Episode 13, "What's Inside the Vault?" The title really says it all. Wolfe and Frank Fritz pay a visit to a woman overwhelmed by her inheritance, which includes a secret vault, and they'll go with her inside to see what treasures may lurk there. The episode also focuses on their meeting with an 80-year-old man who drives around his massive property on a minibike. 

They're two plotlines that converge in the best of ways, which is likely why this particular installment comes in at number one on Ranker's list of the best "American Pickers" episodes of all time. On top of that, the episode has also earned itself a rating of 7.7/10 on IMDb.

It seems one aspect of this episode that's caught people's attention is the intrigue surrounding the titular vault. What could possibly be inside? You'll just have to watch it yourself to find out.
