CR Collectables That Would Score on American Pickers
If the American Pickers were to come visiting the Cedar Rapids area they would find a treasure trove of goodies right here in their own home state.
The guys would likely spend a good chunk of time in Czech Village searching through the neighborhood's many antique and consignment shops.
They may swing into every quarter of the city's neighborhoods. They'll find plenty to explore before heading back home to LeClaire.
Here are a few places they should definitely check out.
Czech Village Antiques Czech Village is the largest Antique Mall in the Cedar Rapids area. Located at 82 16th Avenue, it features a full line of Czech and American antiques and collectibles.

Lest we forget eBay! Here are a few original Cedar Rapids Baseball Cards of some pretty big Major League names including Mike Trout. Nothing says nostalgia like baseball cards and fans still will pay good money for their heroes' rookie minor league cards before they hit the big time.
