With 1,518 items in his collection, the Guinness World Record holder only started collecting seven years ago.
“I mainly get items from eBay, and when I’m out and about in shops or traveling,” said Zorzin, “but I’m lucky to have such great family and friends that give me items almost every month, and on Christmas and birthdays.”
When asked what motivates him to keep collecting, Zorzin commented on the uniqueness of Superman items. “I love the colors and varieties of things I can get. I can’t stop now; I have gone way too far.”
Zorzin estimates his Superman collection to be worth between £10000 and £25000. That’s roughly equivalent to $12,000 – $31,000. When talking about the dollar amount, Zorzin added, “Sometimes I rather not think about it.”
His dedication, however, has paid off in the form of an official Guinness World Record. The title, he jokes, is the one item in his collection that was hardest to get. Zorzin remembers thinking at age 14 that one day he would make it into the book. “It means more than anyone can imagine.” Zorzin will appear in Guinness World Records 2017: Blockbusters!
