It all started pretty innocently, but wonderfully, for the world's greatest baseball card collector. During the 1990s, Paul Jones and his father Barry got cards anywhere they could. They'd buy up stores, they'd stop in at local Minor League or Major League baseball stadiums to purchase packs and packs of cards sold at the team store. Paul quickly got into the hundreds of thousands range by the mid-2000's. And then, after getting to 528,000, he hit the record books: Guinness named him as having the largest private baseball card collection in 2008. His story grew, people sent him more cards and it drove him to continue collecting.
"You always dream about being on a baseball card. It's kind of funny when you finally see it." —
