To help better understand collectors and collecting, I recommend my book, "The Art of Collecting", available on for $25. The book includes an entire chapter on "Why We Collect" and others that include helpful hints for good collecting habits. Collecting is all about the passion you feel for the object.

To my knowledge, Craig Kallman of Atlantic Records has a record collection that rivals just about anybody on earth. According to some articles around 300,000.
