Ed is the co-founder and co-owner of BrickPicker.com. He has been a Lego collector since he got his first set in 1979 and is now an investor as well. He has more than 3,000 sets, with an estimated value of more than $100,000. He got the idea to create the online price guide for Lego collectors after he discovered that a Millennium Falcon set he bought for $399 was selling for $800-$1,200 on eBay two years later. The price for that set is now nearly a value of $4,000.
