The Top 10 Baseball Cards of All Time

I recently ran across a list of the top 10 baseball cards of all time published by the great financial magazine Forbes. Unfortunately, none of these cards appear to be in my personal collection. It does not give an order of greatness, and the list is in chronological order. The Forbes top 10 list includes:

1909 T206 Honus Wagner
1914 E145-1 Cracker Jack Ty Cobb
1914 E145-1 Cracker Jack Joe Jackson
1933 Goudey Nap Lajoie
1933 Goudey Babe Ruth
1938 Goudey Heads Up R323 Joe DiMaggio
1949 Leaf Satchel Paige
1951 Bowman Willie Mays
1952 Topps Mickey Mantle
1954 Bowman Ted Williams
1989 Fleer Bill Ripken @#$% Face

OK, the 1989 Bill Ripken card is not really a part of their list, but the rest are. Those ten cards by themselves would make up a very nice collection.

if someone owned all ten it would make for a nice retirement account too . . . interesting that it came from Forbes . . .

Yeah, just the Wagner card would suffice for my retirement!

That's a pretty awesome list!

I would like to see the top 10 cards that it is possible for the 'average collector' to obtain. Maybe a blog bat around topic? (though since I don't have a blog, I could only watch from the sidelines!).....
