Dan and Laura Dotson of American Auctioneers hosted the "Storage Wars" season 9 finale with an episode titled, "The Fat Lady Is Warming Up." Mary Padian, Ivy Calvin, Darrell "The Gambler" Sheets, Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schulz all took part in the show this week and fought for unclaimed lockers at G&M Self Storage in Van Nuys, California. Twenty seven units were up for grabs and, despite such a large volume of lockers, Mary was unable to score even a single unit.

Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schulz score

Jarrod gets in a bidding war with Ivy for the first unit of the day, and gets bid up, but eventually scores the unit for $600. They immediately find a dirty office chair worth $25, a $40 wine fridge and $65 in routers. They find multiple binders full of Topps baseball cards from 1970, including Pete Rose and Hank Aaron cards. Jarrod thinks they might be the best cards they've ever found and the one binder alone may be worth $200 or more.

They find a small guitar amplifier worth $50 and some really nice horse riding boots, an English saddle and a riding helmet. They take the horse gear to an expert to find out more information. The expert tells Jarrod and Brandi their horse riding items are worth $1,300, which gives them a profit for the day of $1,480.

Ivy Calvin wins big

The second unit is also a bidding war, this time between Ivy, Darrell and Jarrod, who puts up the biggest fight.
