Heritage Auctions and hobbyDB to Bring Vast Collecting Archives to the MassesDALLAS, Texas (Nov. 15, 2019) — Heritage Auctions, the world’s largest collectibles auctioneer is helping collector site hobbyDB document and provide values for every collector.
Designed to become the ultimate crowd-sourced database for collecting, hobbyDB offers the ability to research, track, value, buy and sell collectible objects. Collectors from around the world already come to hobbyDB to research and acquire everything from Golden Age comics to Porsche posters to Tiffany Glass and beyond.
Now, to the delight of hobbyDB’s millions of visitors, the hobbyDB database will be boosted by more than 5 million past lots previously sold at Heritage Auctions.
"As a collector myself, I believe that hobbyDB could be exactly what the collectibles world needs,” said Heritage Auctions Co-Chairman Jim Halperin. "We’re delighted to support their ambitious goal to eventually index and document 100 billion collectibles in the most accessible way.”
Since launching in 2014, hobbyDB has become home to more than 605,000 collectors, growing its user base 94 percent in the last 12 months alone. hobbyDB’s combined collections now have a total value of $624 million, and will increase roughly tenfold with the gradual addition of Heritage’s archive.
"Heritage Auctions is No. 1 for many areas of collectibles, so we are very excited about this alliance,” commented hobbyDB CEO Christian Braun, "We know that by working together, we’ll be able to bring their data to the widest possible audience and get even closer to becoming the ultimate resource for collectors worldwide.”
