 i'm thinking arturo may win the crown!  anyone care to weigh in north of 50K pieces?
ive had about that many pass through my hands over the years but have honed it down to a very manageable 5-6 K (although about 9500 albums in digital library)

My most dreaded fear besides dead air nightmares is losing my record
collection I have amassed since I began collecting as a teen in the 60s, I
have about 50,000  LPs, 45s,  78s, CDs plus crates of DATS, cassettes,
reel-to-reel and burned CDs, plus all of the magazines and music books I
have.  When I moved to Miami from So Cal and then here to Denver I wouldn’t
confide in any mover to pack and ship so I rented a U-Haul trailer, packed
the items myself and drove to my destination. Some of my most prized pieces
are the 1950s Cuban records pressings I inherited from my father and uncle,
they are irreplaceable, oh one can get most of the music but not the
original made in Cuba editions  I also have dozens of original James Brown
45s that I bought as a teen, J B would release a new single every 6 weeks
and I would save
 49 cents plus tax to get the latest one. I raised the money
by collecting soda and beer bottles,  12oz were worth 2cents and the quarts
were a nickel
