Default Top 3 cards of Ruth, Cobb, and Shoeless Joe

What would you guys say are top 3 cards in highest demand of Ruth, Cobb, and Shoeless Joe? Besides Baltimore News and Ruth Rookies, Old Mill Joe Jax, and Cobb back red portrait, what would you guys say are the top 3 cards in highest demand of each of these players?

On Cobb, I agree that it is the Cracker Jacks (14,15), any of several rare postcards, and the W600. I do think that the t-227, green t206, and t-3 deserve a mention.

Ruth- his rookie, the Baltimore Sun, and the goudeys (though there are other more rare and expensive cards from his time in Boston, the goudeys have to be mentioned.) if only Cracker Jack had included him!
i don't consider the OM JJ as its out of reach of most!

And of course the M101-6 is now hot since I sold mine 2 years ago!!!!

For Ruth, it's not the most expensive but certainly is one of his most desired cards. And for Cobby, maybe a T206 RED......and for Joe J....maybe a CJ.

Ruth:

1933 Goudeys of course
1933 Sport Kings
1921 Frederick Foto definately deserves a mention

Ty Cobb:

e101
Cracker Jack
Maybe E120 or 1921 Exhibits?

Shoeless Joe:

E90-1
Cracker Jack
m101-4 or m101-5????

Just my opinions.

I'm going with the budget versions of the cards because I think most chase these cards knowing others are way too expensive:

Ruth:
Kashin

Cobb:
E121

Jax:
W514 strip
