Non-Sport Update best of 2015During the last two weeks of December, we asked blog readers to vote for the best sets of 2015. A total of 73 sets were listed and voters were allowed to nominate write-in votes (Breygent Marketing’s Bates Motel Season 1 came out just a day or two after we compiled the list and received numerous votes). Readers could choose up to five sets and were asked to select products they felt were executed well, rather than their favorites.

You need not be The Great Carnac to predict Star Wars would come out high on this year’s list. And you might guess Marvel and DC related properties would do well too. They almost always do. Releases from non-sport mainstays Topps, Rittenhouse, Cryptozoic and Breygent generally fair well. But this year’s contest was dominated by Perna Studios. The company simply ran away with the prize. They released just two sets this year and both of them combined to deliver a one-two KO to companies much larger in staff and sales, so a major kudos to Perna Studios’ Tony and Elaine Perna! And a big congratulations to all the companies both on the list and not who put out some excellent releases this past year.

Below are your top ten non-sport products of 2015.
