Man Owns 100,000 Lottery Tickets, Refuses to Scratch Them

A British man who has collected over 100,000 lottery cards might have been a millionaire if he had ever bothered to scratch them to find out. Dave Mannix, 42, says he owns the world's biggest scratch ticket collection.
A former phone card collector who put his obsession to rest in 1990 with the rise of cell phones, Mannix says he's collected almost every scratch card issued by the U.K.'s National Lottery since 1994. Some of the cards are used, donated to him by various retailers, and others he bought new. In fact, over the last 20 years, Mannix has spent $131,800 buying unscratched cards for his collection, which he lovingly stores in one room in his Cheshire home. Around 10,000 cards remain unscratched, and most have expired.
