Meet our awesome patient and Pez enthusiast, Jim Blaine. Jim first began collecting Pez in 1999 when he first moved to Michigan. He was working as a gas station clerk, and Pez happened to be sold there. Jim initially started buying different characters at work, and as his collection grew, his family started contributing during birthdays and holidays.
Fast forward to 2019—Jim’s collection grew from a few hundred dispensers to over 40,000! Jim has shared his love for Pez with other collectors around the world and even went on to host multiple Pez conventions in Michigan. He’s been featured by the Detroit Free Press, WXYZ Detroit, Live in the D, and many more.
