Menahem Asher Silva Vargas, a 37 year old lawyer, holding title for the largest collection of Harry Potter memorabilia and it’s recognized by Guinness World Record at his home in Mexico City on Monday, Sept. 29, 2014.

Asher Silva Vargas owns 3,097 pieces of Harry Potter merchandise which means he is now the Guinness World Record holder of having the biggest collection of stuff from the popular books and films, originally written by J.K. Rowling.

The Mexican lawyer received his accolade after spending the last 14 years collecting though he said it was never his intention to build such a large collection. his 14 year old collection consists of more than 3000 individual items, including figurines, trading cards, wands, clothing, and accessories.

Mr Vargas told reporters: "When I realised that my treasures began to take up more than one room, I decided that I should take this seriously." He also said it was his family and friends who encouraged him to put his collection forward.

Guinness World Records officially recognized it as the world No. 1, at 3,097 pieces. The previous record was 807 pieces.
