Awarded for having the largest collection of Ghostbusters memorabilia in the world, Ohio resident Robert O’Connor owns a staggering 1,221 collectibles from the beloved supernatural franchise. It all started with a Stay Puft marshmallow man from Kenner, and gradually snowballed into a collection that spans across signed LPs from Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson to a full series of the Kenner Ecto Glows on card un-punched, now worth a whopping $1,500 for just five of them.
Speaking about his love for original film — which he first saw when he was only four years old — O’Connor said that Ghostbusters “allowed me to escape from reality and be that character I saw in the movies. I was able to enjoy being a kid and with Ghostbusters you didn’t need to be strong, fast, or have a super power. You just had to have courage to fight the unknown.”
