Ernst Tremmel, aka hobbyDB member Moose, is a veteran collector with an impressive Hard Rock Pin collection. Today he shares his quest to collect all 115 pins from Hard Rock’s entire Wood Grain series.
The Hard Rock Cafe Vienna opened in summer 2014. I had already visited a few cafés and bought pins, but I didn’t really have a clue what collecting Hard Rock Pins meant.
I had no idea that there would be 115 pins in the end.
After a few months, the last pin that was missing was Rome, which I got from a collector in Switzerland.
When I happily believed the series was complete, a collector from England sent me a pin from Marseille.
No one knew that Marseille had two versions of the Woodgrain.
Last but not least, I bought a prototype pin at Pinsanity in Vegas.
