The Land of 10,000 Marios
Brett Martin may own the world’s largest collection of video game memorabilia–it contains over ten thousand individual pieces. Many of them are Super Mario-related , including every three-dimensional commercial depiction of Mario you can imagine.

Despite appearances, not every item in Martin’s collection is Mario-related, but it seems that way from the pictures. “People may seem to think that I favor Mario,” he said when I interviewed him, “but I have more Mario stuff just because there‚Äôs more Mario stuff out there to collect!”
