Collector's Call Web Extras: The world's largest collection of board games!
Jeff Bauspies has a "Monopoly" on board games.
With more than 1,700 board games in his collection, Jeff Bauspies is the Guinness World Record holder for the largest collection of its kind. His custom-built basement is packed floor-to-ceiling with games arranged in alphabetical order, some of which are quite rare.
We’re joined by Jeff's cousin, Mary, as well as appraiser and board game specialist, Kate Martin. Kate put an overall value on Jeff's collection, and then offered her vintage Six Million Dollar Man board game.

Jeff has a board-game basement to "die" for — but is it worth "Six Million"?
2. Bonus Video: 1934 Touring Card Game
This is the most recent addition to Jeff's collection — a 1934 edition of the card game Touring. Our appraiser says Touring is one of the most common games she sees on the market, despite its age. It was discontinued until They Might Be Giants kicked off a revival by featuring it in a music video.
3. Bonus Video: Franklin Mint Scrabble Game
This fancy-schmancy edition of Scrabble features gold-plated — not solid gold, alas — tiles. It's worth about $300.
