Dan's garage-turned-toy store puts Jordan in toy heaven - until Dan breaks the news that he's only looking to sell a few items. This gets Jordan worried that Julia set him up for a dig that won't turn much of a profit.

Though this trip was expensive, Jordan and Julia acquired toys that more than cover the cost, while satisfying a member of TV history.

Jordan's first stop is toy collector Steve, who is said to have a one hundred thousand dollar collection. Jordan's hopes are quickly crushed when he finds toy rival Mark just leaving Steve's house with boxes and boxes of toys - including a rare Mego Star Trek enterprise set.

If he can find this game, Danny wants Jordan to join him on his radio show and sell the toys he got him, live. Jordan and Steve visit their first dig, Jason, who is said to have a huge 80's collection. They come across a lot of superheroes and Sci-Fi toys, but can't seem to find Partridge Family.

He heads to the radio show and starts showing off the goods he's just purchased. Danny immediately buys the board game for $20, and immediately rejects the $1200 Partridge Family bus that Jordan really took a chance with.

On his way to the first dig, Jordan picks up aspiring toy dealer Travis to show him the ropes of the toy business. Travis mentions that he wants to go to C2E2 because he's never worked a toy convention before.
