The Twitter account for American Pickers posted news about their latest items for the spooky season.

The post mentioned there were “great finds at the exclusive American Pickers collection for easy Halloween ideas.”

The tweet then sent followers to the History Channel store, where the face of Frank, 57, could be seen on certain items. 

Mike Wolfe, 57, and his former co-host are on the cover of American Pickers Guide to Picking. 

The two reality stars are also standing side by side on the white mug. 

With the holiday season coming up, the duo can also be spotted on the double-sided ornament. 

Frank last appeared on the History show during a March 2020 episode.

Mike’s co-host had taken some time off to recover from back surgery, which left him with 185 stitches and two rods in his spine. 

During his time off from the show, Frank had lost about 65 pounds and kept a healthier lifestyle while staying sober from alcohol.

Then in July, Mike confirmed his former co-host would not be returning to the show in an Instagram post.

The show continued with Mike, Danielle Colby, 45, and his brother Robbie, who has appeared in numerous recent episodes and seemed to have replaced Frank.

THE FEUD

The TV star’s firing was allegedly due to Frank’s feud with Mike.

While speaking to The Sun about their falling out, Frank said back in August: “I haven’t talked to Mike in two years. He knew my back was messed up, but he didn’t call me up and ask how I was doing. That’s just how it is.

“The show is tilted towards him 1,000 percent. I can’t even bend that far down to show you how much. 

“That’s fine. It’s like you’ve got Aerosmith and there’s Steven Tyler and he’s the front man. I found my spot, I’m second and he’s number one on the show. That’s no problem with me, maybe he does have a problem.”

LOOKING BETTER

Towards the end of September, in the new photos obtained by The Sun, Frank resurfaced as he looked skinny and happy alongside his two fans. 

Frank wore a brown T-shirt tucked into blue jeans for the snapshots. 

Frank and his adoring fans appeared to be in his antique shop Frank Fritz Finds in Illinois. 

THE FLASHBACK

At the beginning of September, in an episode titled Coal Gold, Mike was speaking to a former circus ringleader in Virginia.

The ringleader was selling items from his previous years working in the circus industry.

As the two men spoke, Mike recalled meeting a legendary sideshow act Ward Hall with Frank during a 2013 episode of the History Channel show.

The host raved about Ward’s knowledge of the circus industry while clips played of him and Frank looking through Ward’s belongings.

Although Frank did not speak during the flashback scene, he nodded his head while Ward recalled what the admission prices used to be for the circus events.
