It would be hard to pinpoint who is the most devoted Harry Potter fan, but it just might be a man in Mexico City whose collection of Harry Potter memorabilia has been lauded the largest in the world by the Guinness World Records on Monday. The Associated Press reports that Menahem Asher Silva Vargas has spent 15 years forming his collection, which takes up two rooms, which now has 3,097 pieces. The old Guinness World Record for the largest Harry Potter memorabilia collection was 807 pieces.
