Retired electrician Mike Martin collected dozens of large breasted mannequins, which he restored, dressed, and cared for tenderly. Then he died last July at age 88, leaving his extensive collection behind. The good news is that the entire set, along with a huge array of clothing and accessories, has been put up for auction and you can bid on them through this Thursday. Hurry! Make your family proud!

This could be yours!

Martin and his wife, Maxine, lived in Beloit, Wisconsin, with upwards of 60 mannequins. "If you've seen them, obviously you can tell he was very into big-busted women, to say the least," Martin's daughter, Lisa Erspamer, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "My mom tolerated it. By no stretch of the imagination did she like it." Women!

According to Martin's neighbor Rich Ranft, "some people are making fun of it online" (the nerve!), but he added: "everybody collects something." Good point—I collect coffee mugs. Same thing.

Nothing to see here. Just your typical mannequin collection.
