Default An incredible collection!

I thought I had a lot of stuff stashed away, but this guy beats me. If only I had an extra half million semolians to spend. See all the pictures at the end.

I guess if you're going to hoard, there's worse stuff to collect.

Nice to know I'm not alone in my disorder and that there is always someone who is far sicker than I. ROTFL

I would guess there is profit in buying and breaking up that collection.

This keeps surfacing. I wonder if he'll ever get a buyer.

Yes, every year or so he puts that lot up for sale. It would be fun to go through it, but it's not worth .5 million.

Considering the amount of effort it would take to catalog, price, list and sell all of it broken down...

I don't think it would be worth it.

That is an amazing collection though.

It reminds me of the legends of Harley Davidson collections. Every once in a while one actually shows up. Not to that scale, but hoards none the less.
