Have you ever liked something so much you just had to have another and another?

It's amazing how many people are smitten with the collecting bug.

The star of this special "On the Road" program about collectors has to be an irrepressible enthusiast named Bucky Legried.

Bucky lived on a farm in Frost, Minn., where he also sold machinery. Along the way he picked up a baseball cap or two from other dealers, seed salesmen, promoters, sports teams and, of course agricultural machinery companies.

His collection grew and when we last met him Bucky had accumulated well over 1,0000 caps: a number so vast that he finally achieved his lifelong dream of a mention in the Guiness Book of Records.

Sadly, Bucky passed away before he could collect more caps, but the folk in Blue Earth County are still looking for a building to show off "Bucky's Caps".
