His most interesting finds include four drawings by Pablo Picasso and a letter written by Abraham Lincoln. He once encountered something really scary when he found a human corpse, wrapped in plastic, in a storage locker.
  • Being a storage auction veteran, Sheets was very excited to learn about the A&E reality TV series ‘Storage Wars.’ Since his son, Brandon, also helps him in his business, they decided to participate in the series as a father-son duo. Joining the series in 2010, the father and son have proved themselves to be formidable bidders in the show and have emerged among the most popular participants. Working together, the two found a real treasure in season 3. Darrell bought a locker for $3,600, which on opening, was discovered to contain several pieces of original artwork by Frank Gutierrez, worth for approximately $300,000!
