    1997 Zenith Ripken is pretty awesome. They made an 8x10 version too.

    1980 Rickey is about as cool as you're gonna find in vintage. And the Topps Gallery repaints of 53-54 sets with modern players are great. Early Topps Gold Labels are in my Top 5 too.

    T210 and Donruss Crusade. These look good on a computer but just pull you in when seen IP.

    I do understand why this card gets so much love, but not so much so that it is one of the greatest cards of all time (which it is often voted in polls like these). It was unique for the time, as just about every other card was a portrait and Horizontal cards were rare. In a somewhat related theme, I always loved the 1933 Delong Pepper Martin card for it's horizontal orientation and an odd card design too (which I have always liked).

    However, it is obviously a staged shot in what looks like a spring training game. If anything, I think this card belongs in a class with the 52 Topps Zernial or the Bo Jackson FB/BB card and I am a Dodger fan who collects just about anything and everything Dodgers. Now if they would have captured real game action of a slide into 2nd on a 53 Bowman Color, that would have been an epic card.

    Which leads me to my choice, the 71 Topps Munson card. That card just has it all. Art in a 2.5x3.5 package.

    Probably the 1999 Ultra Diamond Producers inserts. The design is decent enough, but it's the "diamond effect" that puts them over the top for me. The definite scans don't do it justice type card. 1997 Fleer Diamond Tribute is another personal favorite.

    Not a real card but a stunning example of the form.

    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds...
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Flushing to be born?


    And this one.

    It's old, it's colorful, the script waves just right. Perfection.



    How Jose in a softball jersey is beautiful just doesn't register with me.
