Hard Rock Pin Catalog

 

One of the most extensive collections out there, the Hard Rock Pin Catalog contains more than 70,000 pins from around the globe and has been in existence since 2001. Inside the catalog you’ll find a full historic assortment of collectibles from Hard Rock. Currently, the catalog focuses solely on collectible pins which are a trademark collectible for Hard Rock. However, we plan to add many more families of collectibles to the catalog. Stay tuned!

Info about the catalog and those that maintain it.

The catalog is maintained by Pin Masters, an amazing group of volunteers who are each assigned a Hard Rock global location. Overseeing the Pin Masters are a group of collectors that make up the Pin Master Advisory Board. This group ensures new locations, pin groups, catalog entry standards, and other information about the pins and catalog are conveyed to the Pin Master membership so they can assure the catalog’s accuracy. As new Hard Rock locations open around the globe, the Pin Master Advisory Board searches for new Pin Masters to oversee that portion of the catalog.

The catalog itself will live within the hobbyDB collectibles database. As many of you know, it’s our mission to preserve databases and provide free, accurate information to everyone. Adding the Hard Rock Pin Catalog to the database is our perfect way to continue to achieve this mission and preserve this information for pin collectors all across the world.

Welcome to the Family Hard Rock Pin Collectors!

Whether you’re a novice collector or well on your way to becoming a Pin Master, your Pin Locker is safe in our hands. And then some. We’re working closely with Pin Masters to provide an even more comprehensive catalog with new features and options that are free to use.

Among them is a simple, three-step process to transfer your collection fully intact from the Hard Rock website. All you have to do is –

  1. Export your Pin Locker as CSV file
  2. Create a free account on hobbyDB
  3. Email your Pin Locker CSV file and hobbyDB username to hardrockpins@hobbydb.com

The Hard Rock Pin Catalog on hobbyDB also allows you to boost the look of your pins with the ability to add extra photos. For example, now you can feature those different pin back designs.

Does your Hard Rock collection extend beyond pins? The hobbyDB catalog affords its users the opportunity to add all their cherished Hard Rock items, such as shot glasses, magnets and hoodie bears. You can learn more about adding to the hobbyDB catalog here.

Next Steps

  1. We are finalizing the taxonomy with the Pin Masters over the weekend
  2. We will add the entire pin catalog to hobbyDB as soon as possible (hopefully within the next 10 days)
  3. We will upload all received user Pin Lockers as soon as the entire catalog has been added
  4. We will keep you updated through the entire process

Hi Andy, you find more than 100,000 HRC pins and other merch on hobbyDB (almost 40,000 more than we migrated the database). Just use the main database search!

Hi I’m looking for the hello Kitty Mexico hard rock pins. I believe there’s 2 types available. I need them both. I’ll check back to see if anyone here writes a comment willing to sell them. Let me know please, thank you

I suggest adding them both to your Wish List. You will then get a notification when somebody puts them up for sale (and later when we have that feature for trade).

Are the reference numbers only available for those that came from the catalog? Or is there a continued numbering system available for reference?

Yes, that is the HDBID number that every database item on hobbyDB has.

Can’t quite tell how to access the main database. Initially, I’m interested in a full listing of HRC Pittsburgh pins from 2005…

Find Hard Rock Pittsburgh in Subjects, filter for after 2005 and sort by Release Date (that sort requires that you are logged-in). That gets you this result.

Hi Joyce, there are now 102,000 pins. It would take between 8-10 books to publish them. Unfortunately Hard Rock Cafe pins to not have an official name or reference number so can be hard to find. Here is some help https://help.hobbydb.com/support/solutions/articles/36000033302-searching-database-items (for Hard Rock using the term Hard Rock, the year that is generally on the pin and the location helps a lot).
