With only 60 days to spare before Philadelphia's historic Church of the Nativity is demolished, the Jay, Markand Dan rush to retrieve abandoned treasures from the past 170 years. The guys hit the jackpot when they find floral and Tiffany-style stained glass windows in the sanctuary, and a giant rose window worth $10,000 has Jay saying “Amen.” But perhaps their most surprising find is vintage parallel bars and the remains of a basement bowling alley.
