Baggage Battles is an American docu-reality, produced by The Travel Channel from 2012.

Format[edit]

The program is related to staged lost baggage auctions, and police auctions, in which participants Laurence and Sally Martin, Mark Meyer, Billy Leroy and Traci Lombardo, buy items to resell; often, they call experts to evaluate the objects they have bought.[1] The format draws on that of similar shows like Storage Wars.[2]

Critical reaction[edit]

AV Club found it derivative of Storage Wars, but more positively said that the travel angle did add some local color and occasionally it did surprise with what the participants found.[3]
