500K! Hooray! hobbyDB Reaches Database Milestone for Items Added


hpbbyDB

We have a mantra here at hobbyDB that we like to repeat. It humbly boasts “over 100 billion collectibles…eventually.”

And while the road ahead of us toward documenting every collectible ever made is a long one, we’ve proudly reached a milestone in our mission by adding the 500,000th database entry page to the hobbyDB database!

That’s half a million different collectibles from brands and franchises such as Hot Wheels, Funko and Hard Rock Cafe pins. And more. So much more.

Hard Rock Cafe

The Hard Rock Cafe Pin community is alive and strong on hobbyDB with close to 78,600 pins — roughly 29,000 of which are dedicated to guitars. The best part is that more pins arrive in the database daily.

A few of our favorite Hard Rock Cafe Pins –

Madrid FC Parry Red Les Paul Prototype – As we stated above, what would the Hard Rock Café be without its guitars? And no one says rock ‘n roll better than the legendary Les Paul.
