We are excited to add the diecast expertise of Robert Graves Jr. to the hobbyDB Advisory Board. Rob is one of the co-founders of the South Texas Diecast Collectors Club, and his South Texas Diecast website is the most authoritative lists of Hot Wheels models on the internet.
An early fan of Hot Wheels (he was born the same year as the first Redlines), he collected many of them over the years until family and career pushed the hobby aside. While his young son was in the hospital in the late 90s, the two bonded over Hot wheels, and his interest was rekindled.
In 2002, seeing a void in good Hot Wheels information on the web, he posted his personal database online. He then began working with Hot Wheels own forum as one of their photographers and has also now become a moderator there. You will normally meet Rob at the Hot Wheels Annual Collectors Convention, the Hot Wheels Nationals, SuperToyCon and other diecast up and down the country.
I love Rob’s site and use it all the time and also like where hobbyDB is going, this is a great combination.
