Some people collect dolls and others collect baseball cards, but a Flatbush man has taken his love of pizza to a whole new level.
Scott Wiener set the Guinness World Record for the largest collection of pizza boxes.
For 11 years, Wiener has been collecting the boxes in the hope of setting a world record.
He achieved that goal back in 2013, and still holds onto that title.
The Flatbush resident collected rocks and soda-can tabs during his childhood.
At the age of 26, he started to become obsessed with pizza boxes. Not only does he love pizza, he enjoys how each box is unique with different art work. People send him boxes from as far as Antarctica and the Faroe Islands.
Wiener says most of the boxes are unused. The pizza aficionado has a whole process to clean the ones that are.
He says he might have to slow down his collecting as it accumulates. For now, he's enjoying his reign at the top.
