Antonio Palazzola from "Barter Kings" stars in the A&E reality series.

Antonio Palazzola of Apple Valley, California, has been in the bartering business since 1973 when he was 8 years old — he traded a handful of plastic marbles for two large glass marbles. He still has those marbles today and says they're worth a few hundred bucks. Not bad for a first time trader!

The son of a junkyard man, Antonio grew up surrounded by second-hand items. This upbringing opened his eyes to the world of trading and has helped him learn the value of certain items. He says he also learned "how to turn one man's trash into my treasure."

Antonio runs a trading post along with his good friend, Steve McHugh. While he claims he's the better trader and never feels guilty about walking away with the better item, he concedes that Steve is the "better talker."

Antonio has Tourette's Syndrome and has had four heart attacks, but doesn't let that get in the way of trading or spending time with his wife, Toni, and their three children. He says, "My kids have moved well past trading candy for baseball cards. Now it's like calculators for Nike shoes!"
