Georgia man now holds Guinness World Record for Batman memorabilia


Good morning. I'm A Martínez. I have a thing for the Flash, the DC Comics superhero. In my office, I got a collection of about 200 Flash toys. I thought that was a lot, but it's nothing compared to Brad Ladner of Milton, Ga. He's got the Guinness World Record for the biggest collection of Batman memorabilia with 8,226 pieces - action figures, posters, glassware - meticulously organized. Goes to show not all heroes wear capes, but I'll bet Brad has one or 10. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
