Whether you love vinyl art, Superman, Disney, Hard Rock, Hot Wheels, Scientific Instruments, or another classic, we know that everyone is a fan of something.
Enter hobbyDB, the place that every collector can call home.
We’re talking about a place to deep dive into your collection and price out your rare treasures, while tracking and displaying all of your awesome stuff. And so much more, including a marketplace to add those coveted items that your collection needs.
You’ll find it all at hobbyDB, powered by a community of like-minded collectors that’s 650,000 strong and growing every day.
Welcome to your collectible oasis.
At an impressive 500 Billion market valuation, the collectibles space continues to gain traction in multiple segments. Sneakers and trading cards are among a handful of genres that have carved or re-carved their own respective niches recently within the collectibles industry. But these “only” account for roughly $13 billion of the collectibles market. That means all the attention right now is focused on less than 4% of the whole addressable market in collectibles.
At hobbyDB, we cast our net throughout the entire collecting universe. Our goal is to cover everything from the most popular to the most obscure items ever collected, and provide the tools that you need to manage your ever growing collection.Powered by a passionate community and giant database, hobbyDB is the place fans and collectors throughout the galaxy can call home.
Here you will find the internet’s ultimate Funko price guide alongside the No. 1 data resource for Hard Rock Cafe Pins and the largest home for Hot Wheels collectors (to name just a few of our burgeoning communities).
Individually we are all collectors, but together we have the power to shape the industry.
It's been our dream since Day One to allow our members and the community to own a part of (and benefit from) the resource that they helped to build. So when crowdfunding became available, we knew that it was the right choice for our community.
When fans unite, we have power. Our goal is to unite 100,000 fans as shareholders in our company. If we can achieve that, we can shape the destiny of the collectible galaxy.

Once again, we’re opening our doors to collectors worldwide and giving you the opportunity to own a piece of hobbyDB and its family of brands (including Pop Price Guide and The Toy Peddler). It used to be that investing in awesome projects and great teams making cool things (and potentially lots of $$$) was just for the top 1%. But now, thanks to the JOBS Act, EVERYONE gets the opportunity to own a piece of something great that they love! Equity crowdfunding basically allows anyone to easily invest in early-stage pre-IPO companies that they believe will do great things! By uniting fans of all kinds, we’ll be able to shape the future of collecting and create a resource that we all love to use. As hobbyDB grows, so does our power!
