1. BVG 8.5 1980 Topps Rickey Henderson RC
This one hit a few of my PC areas: Graded + Vintage + Rookie Card (especially 8.5's). This is the first (in reverse order) of the key vintage HOF Rookie Cards and such an iconic card. I'm psyched to add it to my collection, and you can re-live the addition via the original blog that I wrote about when I acquired it (Newest BVG Graded RC for my PC).
2. PSA 10 1993 Stadium Club 1st Day Issue Mike Greenwell
Again, this one hit a few of my PC areas: Graded + Red Sox + '90s Insert (bonus points for a PSA 10, would prefer a BGS 9.5). I honestly can't believe that I own a 1993 Stadium Club 1st Day Issue - do you realize how insanely rare & expensive these cards were back in 1993?? Unreal, and again, you can relieve my acquisition via the blog post I made at the time (I've Never Owned One Before, So...).
3. BVG 5 1933 Goudey Rick Ferrell RC
Another great card that hit a few PC areas: Graded + Vintage + Red Sox + Rookie Card. Pretty awesome addition, my oldest vintage graded card in my PC and one of the pillar Red Sox rookie cards. Not a ton of these graded by BVG, so a BVG 5 is not too bad - only one 5.5 and one 6 graded above it by BVG and odds are I was never going to see either of those in my lifetime. I'm super happy with the 5, it's beautiful and easily one of the top five PC cards that I added this year.
4. 2001 Greats of the Game Autograph #88 Hoyt Wilhelm
This one was a personal PC goal for me, getting an autograph of Hoyt Wilhelm. You're probably wondering what the significance of Hoyt Wilhelm is, considering he's not a Red Sox player. As a kid, my dad's nickname was Hoyt, after Hoyt Wilhelm. He was one of his favorite players as a kid and my dad was always supportive of my collecting habit, even though he wasn't a collector himself. As a result, I've had a little side PC of Hoyt Wilhelm cards that I've been slowly accumulating. I'm not organized or keep a list of what I need, but I try to pick up his cards when I can find them on the cheap.
5. 2011 Topps Allen and Ginter Autograph #PGA Peter Gammons
I've been wanting to get a Peter Gammons autograph for awhile now. He's one of my favorite baseball writers, a prominent figure in Boston sports and just seems like a cool, nice guy. Plus, I'm a fan of the Allen and Ginter brand and the framed autographs are typically in great condition and grade well, so maybe some day I'll submit this to BGS for it's BGS 9.5 grade! :)
Well, those are my top five - what were you favorite PC additions to your collection in 2015!
