Vote for HobbyKings for Best Online Community!

Be sure to get your votes in on the Upper Deck Awards as the Best Online Community in the hobby. Here is the link:

According to the Upper Deck Blog
The Best Online Community will receive: a trophy, a variety of unopened product, a LeBron James UDA basketball and a 2009 NFL Rookie Photo Shoot signed football (autographed by more than 25 players) to use as giveaways with their community of loyal collectors.

If HobbyKings wins, of course the contents of the prizes will be given to its members! Although the trophy would stay put :)

Be sure to vote on some of the other categories like Best Box Breaker or Best Blog (in Upper Deck Blog link above)

Good luck to all of the participants in the poll!

Ooops, false alarm?

We had a couple of complaints about the site, and I couldn't get in either. But it looks like for many people, the site was still up and running. Worked with support to make sure all is well, looks like the site is up and running. Thank you for your patience!

HobbyKings site is down

A support ticket has been opened with our vendor. Once the site is back up and running we will let you know. Sorry for any inconvenience.

"Register" link on HobbyKings activated

We have reactivated the "Register" link on HobbyKings but it will send an email to me requesting access to HobbyKings instead of bringing you to the New Member Registration page. Based on the information I receive from the email, I will approve and manually create new accounts.

I apologize for the inconvenience, but this is the measure we will have to take in order to make sure previously banned users cannot create new accounts on the site.

New member registration has been suspended

We have been having issues with a banned member who keeps creating new accounts on HobbyKings. For the meantime, we are not accepting new member registration via the HobbyKings site. If you would like to join the forum, please email me at

Sorry for the inconvenience, and let me know if you have any questions.
