Michael D Hamersky On Comics Shares His Take On The... 
Guinness World Records
Attempt For World's Largest Private Comics Collection That Took Place Saturday May 18th!

Well, I've got just a short blog to post today, on where my youngest son, Vinnie, and I travelled to on Saturday!
That would be in Orange County, California, where Bob Bretall lives.
Bob was last mentioned in my blog #3854, where I mentioned he was hosting a panel at the 2013 Long Beach Comic Con Expo on Saturday, May 11th.
The title of that panel was 'Building Your Comic Book Collection'. Bob mentioned during that panel that he was having an attempt to claim the Guinness World Records feat for having the largest private comics collection in the world.
Well, I just hadda attend that event!
So here are photos from that event on Saturday.  You'll see photos of his 89,613 different comic books collection here and at the special photo album I've posted at my Facebook Fan Page.
Bob also had 7 long boxes of comics that were duplicates of his collection that he gave away during the day to 43 attendees.  That amounted to approximately 33 comics per attendee!
Bob Bretall also has a new web site titled 'Comic Spectrum', which I invite you to check out. Here is the link to his blog post on what happened yesterday.
That should do it for this blog post.  I'll keep you updated at my Facebook Fan Page, Michael D Hamersky On Comics on the success of Bob's Attempt on making the Guinness World Record, after the authorities award him the record!
