My friend Jim Neuman had what was generally considered to be the largest collection of jazz records in the US, if not the world (it numbered in the hundreds of thousands, not millions). He had records filling the attic, the basement, and covering 3 walls of his living room, floor to ceiling, and then a warehouse to contain the overflow. The foundation of his house began to crack because of the weight of all the records.
Jim donated his collection to his alma-mater, Oberlin College, in 2010, where they are housing the collection in a space specially designed for it.

I remember getting a DVD from this guy (DAvid Custis) about a year ago trying to sell his complete record collection. Apparantly he now has it on You Tube.
You folks might enjoy watching his video but, like the Paul Mawhinney collection and many others, he wants to sell the whole thing and it's loaded with common items that no archive or collector will touch.
So much for hoping that collection filling your household will bring big bucks as a unit.
