Posted By: <b>Dan Kravitz</b><p>I love looking at cards (even if they are not mine), so I decided to start this thread. I have 5 cards that I had trouble choosing from, but my e98 Cobb in baby blue and e104-1 Plank "World Champions" won out. They were not chosen because they were the most rare or expensive of my collection, they're just so damn cool. I purchased these privately in the spring and can't stop looking at them. Show your favorite cards off!<br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1158115520.JPG"> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1158115467.JPG">

ALso considered were the Gibson Toleteros, Charleston Aguelitas Segundas, E107 Plank, M101-5 Ruth, '15 Cracker Jack Jackson, and M101-5 Jackson with Famous and Barr back.

That's one cool e100 <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14><br /><br />Weaver is a 30 because SGC hates me. <img src="/images/sad.gif" height=14 width=14> It is one nice card! Should be a 50 minimum. <img src="/images/sad.gif" height=14 width=14>

Posted By: <b>Zach Rice</b><p>This is definitely one of my favorites. A classic image of the legendary Cap Anson. This card came directly from a woman whose grandfather collected them out of the pack.<br /><br /><img src="http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m84/mzm55cards/N28Anson.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Al C.risafulli</b><p>Great thread.<br /><br />You folks all have such dynamite collections that there's nothing I can show you that you'd think was particularly cool. But here are a couple from my own collection that I like a lot.<br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1158119623.JPG"> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1158119649.JPG"> <br /><br />-Al<br /><br />Interesting - the Ward is showing up very tiny, that's the second time this week that a large file has been shrunk down. I wonder if 54 has software that automatically shrinks down larger files. Anyway, it's a Newsboy Ward.

Posted By: <b>quan</b><p>dan's e98 cobb, e104 plank, andrew's d322 wagner, e97 keeler....cat's e135 hornsby--they all spoke to me and whispered sweet lovin' music in my ears. Very nice! I'm almost at that point where all the cards I have left are loved equally, but here's a pair because they're similar:<br /><br /><img src="http://home.earthlink.net/~quannimir/images/e97youngbw.jpg"> <img src="http://home.earthlink.net/~quannimir/images/e97keelerbw.jpg">

Posted By: <b>DSGreen</b><p>Two of my current favorites are my N172 Wheelock and the W501 Southworth. The Wheelock is the oldest card I own and the image is great. I like the Southworth because it has his son in it. My third choice would have been my Fatima Players Tyler card.<br /><br /><img src="http://home.gforcecable.com/graffiticloud/page1/files/page1-1002-full.jpg"> <img src="http://home.gforcecable.com/graffiticloud/page1/files/page1-1006-full.jpg">
