The hobbyDB family of brands is proud to report that its first hobbyDB / Pop Price Guide Price Listing Record Day was a resounding success.
A tip of the cap goes out to the members of the hobbyDB Data team and our volunteer Price Squad, who combed through more than 8,500 listings to assign prices or delete bad items — obliterating our goal of 6,000.
As a result, you can now expect to see more up-to-date and accurate values in your collection, especially when it comes to items such as Funko vinyl figures and Hard Rock Cafe pins.

Our price values rely on our specialized algorithm that culls an average value of an item based on eBay and other secondary market sales.
It’s up to our small Data Team and volunteer Price Squad to pour over these listings with a keen eye to weed out items based on condition and fakes, as well as convention stickers and price gouging. Essentially any variable that can affect an item’s value.
As you might already know, Pop Price Guide recently migrated databases with hobbyDB. This is part of our continued pursuit of becoming the ultimate resource for collectibles pricing.
The hobbyDB / PPG Price Listing Record Day was an effort to combat the build-up of listings that accrued while our team was busily tending to our migration efforts.
Now that the latest round of the migration is almost complete, we’ll likely attempt another Price Listing Record Day within the next few weeks.
And you can help out.
We’re always scouring the galaxy to find volunteers to join our team. The training is light and many members have fun with it.
