Kevin Silva has been Collecting Batman Memorabilia Since He was Five
A Batman fan has spent over $100,000 building a shrine dedicated to his hero. Kevin Silva from Indiana, U.S, keeps his 2,500-item haul in his very own basement ‘Batcave’. After he was bought a Batman lunchbox in kindergarten, Mr Silva became hooked, and since then he just hasn’t been able to resist any kind of Batman merchandise.
The electrician, who says that his favourite Batman film is The Dark Knight, has even splashed out on a $3,600 replica of Adam West’s Batsuit. But luckily for Mr Silva, his wife Janet, 50 and two children fully support his adoration for the caped crusader and have even started their own memorabilia collections. Mr Silva’s daughter Kaylaigh, 25, now collects anything Marilyn Munroe while his son Dylan, 21, is building up an impressive collection of rock band Kiss memorabilia.
