There's a bumper sticker, 'He who dies with the most toys wins,' ... That's not quite my philosophy, but close. I'm not looking to amass size (in the collection) as much as cool things when they show up.

If you count every trading card, there's probably 10,000 right there.

(Collecting) plays a very important part of my life, ... But when I go to work, it's work that I do. Being that it involves 'Star Wars' makes it special. The things that are important to me are friendships and relationships. 'Star Wars' is high up on the list, but it's not at the top of the list.

Immediately, the price went up ten-fold, because people knew I didn't have it in my collection.

I'm sure there are collectors who keep things hidden away and never show it off, ... That's hard for me to understand because part of what has made 'Star Wars' collection so wonderful to me is the chance to share and meet with all kinds of people.
