Default What are your 5 favorite cards of all-time?

I am curious and would like to see other's list of their favorite all-time cards. I am NOT talking set, issue, team, player, etc. and value had NOTHING to do with my question. Year, make and player are what I am looking for. PC's, strip, cabinet, or whatever as "what is a card" is not the debate here either as for the sake of argument if you call it it a card, then its a card on this thread. Put them in order, or don't. I think I'd roll out:
* 1914 CJ Matty
* 1869 Peck and Snyder CDV Cinci with the P/S ad back
* 1903 B/W Wagner
* 1910 Sepia 796 Cobb/Wags (I HAD to include this)
* 1903 B/W Matty

I guess I am a little Matty biased? He looks like a downright stud on his rookie card. Mine are not in any order and #6 would probably be the Mello-Mint Matty. Any opinions?

Too tough of a list, but I've always been in love with the '34 Gehrig yellow background (such a gorgeous card) and my favorite T206 is Pattee, love the background. I hope to own either someday.

Yes! Forgot about the '53 Reese! Simply the most stunning card ever IMO.

a few choices.....and I don't own most of these nor does value really play a role.

1. 1914 Baltimore News Ruth
2. 1911 T205 Cobb
3. 1893 Just So Cy Young
4. 1916 D381 Wagner
5. 1910 E90-1 Young - Boston


On any given day the last 2 of those could change for me. I doubt the top 3 would change.
