hobbyDB / Pop Price Guide Price Listing Record Day Resounding Success

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.

What is a Price Listing?

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. 

Price Listing Record Day

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.

hobbyDB and Pop Price Guide to host Price Listing Record Day

Pop Price Guide

The hobbyDB family of brands will play host to its first Price Listing Record Day.

And you can help by becoming a volunteer member of our Price Squad.

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.

While the latest round of the migration is almost complete, we were left with a bit of a backlog when it comes to assigning prices.

That’s where our Price Listing Record Day comes into play.

Record Price Listing Day

On Wednesday, August 26, we will be making a team-wide effort to drastically lessen the PPG backlog. With the help of our volunteer Price Squad, our mission is to complete at least 6,000 listings.

Assigning Prices

Our specialized algorithm utilizes eBay and other secondary market sales to calculate an item’s value.

We’ve always relied on our small Data Team and more than 120 volunteers throughout the years to “assign prices,” essentially combing through listings in our system for condition, fakes and anything else that could potentially alter an item’s value.

Now that our Data Team consists of only one person, our volunteers are more important than ever. This will be the first of what we hope are several Price Listing Record Days.
