Certified Hobby Shop


 Certified Hobby Shops are Sellers that have officially verified with TCGplayer that they are a licensed reseller of gaming merchandise and have a storefront location. The Certified Hobby Shop seal guarantees that a Buyer is purchasing their product from a genuine brick and mortar gaming store!

It’s easy to search for products from Certified Hobby Shops. Simply use the Verified Seller  filter on our product pages and look for the Certified Hobby Shop icon  in the results.


If you are a Seller who would like to be registered for the program, all you need to do is contact sales@tcgplayer.com with the subject line “Certified Hobby Shop Application” and supply the following information:
