Default Type Collector - Which card for each type?

Over the years of collecting and having spent time on this board, I have had my eyes opened to some amazing series/sets/ and more specifically cards within those sets.

If you could have one "interesting/unique" card from every set, which card would you choose? Not necessarily the most expensive, but the coolest to look at.

From the '15 CJ's - I would definitely choose Frank Smith.

Cool question. These two fit the bill, IMO.

1911 Zeenut John Halla

(sorry for the laziness of not posting a photo, but I don't own either one)

This is really freaky but 2 days ago I saw this exact card and told myself I want a low grade example. I did a look through all the CJs since I'm not familiar with the set and to just to be sure. Didn't change my mind. I want it....

This would have been EXACTLY the card I would choose.

So since he's taken a I'll go with Jack Berry of the T207 set

I always thought the 50 Bowman Spahn looked like a Norman Rockwell painting you'd see on a Saturday Evening Post cover.

Great question since I'm a type collector. I think this Young is such a fantastic card for the E90-1 set. **Shameless plug ** I just posted this for sale in BST section.

The Frank Smith card from the Cracker Jack sets is obviously a bit different. I also think that the Ed Walsh card from the Cracker Jacks is a bit different as well. Walsh looks demented in his Cracker Jack card, as if he is talking to the ball.

I also might as well throw this out there as well. If we are talking unique T-206s, there is only card in the entire set that depicts a mustache.
