Default Besides the 1952 Mantle, what is the post-war card to have?

Not including the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle, which pretty well everybody considers the post-war baseball card to have, what would be next in line?
I.e. 1968 Topps Ryan, 1963 Topps Rose, 1955 Topps Clemente.
It seems like the 1952 Mantle is the clear cut #1 for post war, but I imagine there is some debate for the 2nd best.

I think a sleeper would be the 1956 Topps Mickey Mantle.

I would have to vote for the 1963 Pete Rose, although it is tough choice.

On a serious note, I would have to say 1968 Jerry Kooseman. There is another guy on the card....

5 replies, not one serious one. 1954 Topps Hank Aaron is the correct answer.

Besides the T206 wagner and the 1952 mantle id have to go with the 1952 eddie matthews, Pafko

And even the 1957 Bill Mazeroski

-Which war?

lobo_hacker, fond of the 1948 Bowman and Leaf Kenny Washington cards today for some reason, though as a non-baseball card doesn't technically count

I'd go with 1948 Leaf Satchel Paige or 1952 Mathews.

I'm with the guy above. The 51 Bowman Mantle is ridiculously undervalued. You can still get a low grade for around $1000-1500.

1951 Bowman Mantle is a stunner and very undervalued. I think the 56 Mantle is his nicest looking card and being from the Triple Crown year is a bonus.

The 1951 Bowman Mays, 1954 Topps Aaron are pretty sweet as well. Ryan RC is great card but overrated IMO. I like the 63 Rose as well.

If we are going all sport post war I would have to vote the 1986-87 Fleer Jordan as a must have for any collection. Most iconic post war sports card after the Mantle.

1948 Bowman Musial
1951 Bowman Mantle
And a personal favorite that my dad owns, a 1962 Maris. Really cool to see the stat line with 61 HR on the back of the card.

And for something non-vintage, a legitimate Frank Thomas 1990 NNOF.

pretty tough to choose one, but if I got a freebie it would be a 1954 Bowman Ted Williams

there are several that I think would be highly desirable.

'51 Bowman Mantle
'51 Bowman Mays
'54 Topps Aaron
'54 Topps Banks
'55 Topps Koufax
'55 Topps Clemente

those would be a few off the top of my head...
