Hardcore Hobbies

Dave is a grown man living out every boy's fantasy with an entire room in his house filled with action figures. Dave's transformer figures range in price from $50 to $1,000.
Meet two extreme collectors: Alex spent $20,000 on 60,000 baseball cards of just one, relatively unknown player, and Dave owns more than 3,000 action figures. Each is so consumed by his hobby that it's become more of an obsession, interfering with daily life. Their families are fed up and have called in professional help. Now, NGC follows these hardcore collectors who must cope with letting go of their childhood hobbies to succeed as adults.
