The Largest Baseball Card Collection in the World
Paul Jones has the largest baseball card collection in the world. The collector says he wants his collection to “get to a billion” individual cards. Gianmarco Castronovo discusses the collection:
Paul Jones started his baseball card collection when he was just 9 years old back in 1995. Twenty-six years later, Jones is still at it. The thrill is something special for the collector, whose baseball card collection includes autographed cards and other unique rarities.
The baseball card collection kept by Paul Jones hit the record books in 2008 when Guinness Book of World Records recognized his incredible collection of 528,000 cards as the largest private baseball card collection — in the world!
As a baseball fan and card collector himself, Gianmarco Castronovo can’t help but to marvel at the sheer volume of Paul Jones’s collection. What an incredible commitment to the sport of baseball!
