Great list! Thanks for compiling.
Number 1 has to be a Griffey jr UD rookie card.
Whatever one feels to be iconic, one should try to put in the collection.
Key Rc's of your pc player/players and an on card auto of them.

This!!! I have 3 variations of the card and its still one of my favorite cards in my collection.

Every collection should have a Griffey Jr. rookie in it.
It has to be griffey ud rc.... its #1 in the set for a reason Wink plus it is the card that defines the 80-90's kid era.that one and the topps chipper rc also defines the 90's childhood..
