Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s the Guinness World Records title holder for Largest collection of Superman memorabilia!
Marco “Superman” Zorzin has soared into the new Guinness World Records 2017 Blockbusters! book with his record-breaking collection of 1,518 Man of Steel-related items.
Originally from Brazil, the 30-year-old sign fitter currently lives in Wheathampstead, Hertfordshire, UK.
He only started collecting Superman related memorabilia just seven years ago, but it has become an ongoing obsession for the superhero fan.
Marco has even officially changed his middle name to “Superman”.
(Don’t believe him? It’s written on his driver’s license!)
The superhero fan loves the Guinness World Records books (owning almost every annual), so he was thrilled to find out he’s in the new Guinness World Records 2017 Blockbusters! book.
“It means more than anyone can imagine", he said.
When asked what would be the one item of memorabilia that he would love to add in the future to his collection, Marco explains that he is looking to obtain a full-sized Superman statue of Christopher Reeve or Henry Cavill, which would stand as the grand centrepiece of his display.
"When I was around 14, I used to say I’d be in the book for one reason. It feels amazing to be in the book and recognised for what I have collected.”
When Marco is not busy adding to his collection, he enjoys watching his two daughters play with some of his Superman toys.
We’re delighted to welcome Marco to our family of fantastic record holders, and hope his collection of Man of Steel objects continues to grow up, up, and away.
Guinness World Records 2017 Blockbusters! is out now in the US but will be coming to the UK and Australia in March.
