PHOTOS: Indiana man recognized for largest Batman collection in the world

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - Holy collectibles, Batman!

Kevin Silva, 52, of Indianapolis likes Batman. A lot.

His stash of memorabilia related to the Caped Crusader is housed in a room he calls "the batcave," and it comprises more than 2,500 figurines, lunch boxes, capes and utility belts, among many other things.

Silva says he started collecting Batman-related items after getting hooked on the 1960's show as a kid.

And now it's officially the biggest accumulation of Batman collectibles in the world.

"I've had people drop to their knees at display cases -- 'Oh my God look at all this stuff!'  This is the official certificate that the largest Batman memorabilia belongs to me," Silva said. 

The collection has been appraised at $100,000 --   Way more, he says, than he spent collecting it all over the years.
