Michael Pollack has a real appetite for collecting.
Over the last 50 years, he has accumulated a massive display of 8,917 individual advertising statues which has now earned him the record for the Largest collection of advertising statues.
The pieces, which all vary from rare life-size characters and signs, to miniature mannequins are all located in Pollack’s 3D Advertising Museum as a part of his real estate business in the American city of Mesa, Arizona.
Pollack began his collection when he was just a teenager and was eager to continue its growth over the span of his life – even if that meant traveling for a few key additions.
For the attempt, an official Guinness World Records adjudicator spent 10 hours counting each piece in Michael’s collection, verifying that all components were statues created by a company to market either the company or a product.
After achieving a new record, Michael says he is very proud of his final record-breaking museum.
