Star Wars superfan Steve Sansweet recently gave Forbes an tour of what is considered the largest private collection in the world of Star Wars memorabilia.

Beginning as a journalist at the Wall Street Journal, Sansweet fell in love with the film franchise in the late 1970s, which led him to begin his collection.

Housed at Rancho Obi-Wan, a non-profit museum is located Petaluma, Calif., the collection features more than 350,000 unique Star Wars items -- including the Holographic Chess from the Millennium Falcon, original Death Star pieces, almost every original toy, and much, much more.

While an exact value isn't known, most believe the private collection is worth millions.
