      **Antiques Roadshow: Mobile, Alabama APT
      Monday, April 02, 2007 7:00PM APT
      While in Mobile, Alabama, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW host Mark Walberg and
      appraiser Don Cresswell visit the Audubon Bird Sanctuary on Dauphin
      Island to explore why collectors flock to bird prints by artists
      including James Audubon. At Mobile's Arthur R. Outlaw Convention Center,
      eagle-eyed experts spot such unusual finds as a circa 1969 jersey worn
      by NFL football legend Gayle Sayers when he played for the Chicago
      Bears; a side chair that may have graced the Lincoln White House; and a
      rare trio of books containing lithographs of American Indian chiefs
      whose portraits were painted when they came to Washington to negotiate
      treaties with the U.S. Department of War, valued at $70,000 to $90,000.
