Anyways, I've always been fond of BVG 8.5s given their metallic label and the condition has long been considered the "standard" by price guides. I've been trying to become a more focused collector, and I succeeded recently by passing on my annual case of Topps Allen & Ginter and using those funds (well, a portion of those) to purchase a BVG 8.5 1975 Robin Yount rookie card. As I stated previously, I've always been a fan of the 1975 set and the abundance of "signature" rookie cards in the set: Yount, Brett, Rice, Carter, Hernandez and Lynn.
I've added this card to my collection and added a photo collection of my graded rookie card collection. I stopped at Griffey, because he was one of the last key rookie cards I owned. I could add some more recent players, but I'm going to focus on HOFs and star players from pre-2000. This is all a long-winded way to say, enjoy the photo collection and thanks for reading!
