The collection was given to Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, the state steward of the Alamo who is pushing for a new historical center that would house Collins' collection.
"Texans are deeply indebted to Phil Collins," Patterson
said it will likely take at least five years to raise the millions of dollars needed to design and build a center to house and display the collection.
The location of the center will be decided in about two weeks, Patterson
said, and will likely charge for admission.
