I'm taking a (long) shot at collecting some of these in my new PC idea. I don't have any yet, but along with 15 Red Sox cards, my list of 10 iconic cards of 10 iconic players that I want to acquire is here... and most are post-war.

Hard to pick a number 2. I would debate between the '54 Aaron and the '55 Clemente.

Since everyone seems to be focusing on baseball, I'll add a few from other sports....

Football:

1955 Topps All-American - Jim Thorpe
1957 Topps - Johnny Unitas & Bart Starr RC's
1958 Topps - Jim Brown RC
1965 Topps - Joe Namath RC

Basketball:

1957-58 Topps - Cousy & Russell RC's
1961-62 Fleer - Chamberlain, Robertson, & West RC's
1969-70 Topps - Alcindor RC
1972-73 Topps - Erving RC
1979-80 Topps - Bird/Magic RC
1986 Fleer - Jordan RC

Hockey:

1954-55 Topps - Gordie Howe
1958-59 Topps - Bobby Hull RC
1966-67 Topps - Bobby Orr RC
1979-80 Topps/OPC - Gretzky RC

As for baseball, I'd have to go with the 53 Paige, 54 Aaron RC, and 55 Koufax RC.

For Baseball, it would have to be the 1953 Topps Mickey Mantle.

To me, that card is the next greatest thing from the 52 Topps Mantle.

No one is mentioning the 1967 Topps Tom Seaver RC. I'd love to have that for my dads collection.

Give it ten years, and either the 2011 Bowman Chrome Harper Superfractor AUTO or the Mike Trout 2009 Bowman Chrome Draft Superfractor AUTO will be the ACTUAL correct answer. If they reach their potential, I can definitely see them reaching $50,000+ if not twice that. People pay $100K + for PSA 10's of 1950's Rookie cards of Hall of Famers when there might be two or three of them graded that high, so just watch as people realize there is one true HOLY GRAIL of the best players of the modern age without dispute. I think Superfractor AUTO's for the top prospects in the $800-$2000 range are good gambles, no lie.

These are all staples in a nice PC.
I couldn't agree with this list more. Even the 1989 Griffey is a "must have".

That list above is a great one! All of those cards are iconic. & most are easy to get for not too much right now either!

I saw you guys mention a few really nice cards. I am a pre-75 Yankee collector myself, but I wouldn't mind a 54 Bowman Ted Williams.

I'd have to go with the 1954 Bowman Ted Williams -- because of the scarcity and the story behind it.

That's my choice too.

Give a vote to the 1989 UD Ken Griffey Jr. too. That launched a big boom in the hobby.

It'll get plenty of love from me....one of the favorite cards in my collection.

That said, as far as iconic cards, I'd have to go with the 1954 Aaron and 1955 Koufax as my nominees.

I concur. In 1953, Topps used extraordinary artwork instead of photographs. The Mantle is simply stunning. In 1992, the Marriott corporation bought the original Mantle art for $121,000. When I learned of the sale, I commissioned the original artist, Gerry Dvorak, to paint me another one!

It's a stunner for sure. I grabbed one earlier this year and look at it every day.

The 52T really is the defining card though. We all have great feelings on what's next after that but I think everyone agrees that is the ONE. Man do I need to get my hands on one ASAP.

I think the Franks Williams is an amazing choice as well as the 48 Leaf Paige. That card is so incredibly rare, let alone centered.

Sure if I had a choice between the 51 and the 52, it would be the 52 all day long just because its worth more. Its worth more because of the popularity of the 52 topps set. However if both cards were worth the same, I would choose his rookie over the 52.
