If you could only pick one card from your entire collection as your favorite, what would it be and why? And if you have a scan of the card please show it.

I understand that it's hard to pick just one beloved card, but everyone has to have a favorite right? It doesn't have to be the prettiest card or the rarest card or the most expensive card. Just your favorite.

Great idea for a post, Eric.

Mine would have to be this:

If you could only pick one.... Scan0012

I purchased this card about three years ago at a local Columbus, Ohio show for $20. For me, this was my first decent "find" at a show and also put my father and myself one step closer to our T205 Master Set.

Fast forward about two years.

I was in shock when the same dealer had this in a stack of tobacco cards with a sticker price of $45:

If you could only pick one.... Scan0013

Although I am no longer in possession of the T206 Murr'y, I have done extensive upgrading to our set with the money. The Moran will always be a reminder of why I love this hobby.

No brainer for me, my m101-5 Thorpe. If no one has seen it, I will post the scan if requested.

I am like Jay as one of my N173 Hofers would definately be one of my choices but I have posted them so much I decided for a change of pace to post this card as I really enjoy this card for obvious reasons.

This single card comes the closest to matching a favorite player with a favorite set.

I do not have a scan of the exact card, but it is pretty much like this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/1949-PAT-SEEREY-CARD-NUMBER-73-CARD-IS-MADE-BY-LEAF_W0QQitemZ200328406703QQihZ010QQcategoryZ641QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

For me, the cards are all about the players.
And this player saw himself as the Babe every time he came to bat.
The rest of the world saw him as a player who hit in the .220s, often led the league in Ks (4 of his 6 years), and had less than 500 ABs ieach year.
But he did have his day in the sun!

This is an odd one for me. But I'd have to say it's this E95 Cicotte.

If you could only pick one.... 1909E95CicotteEdPhiladelphiaCaramel

Why?????
I don't like the Red Sox. It's not my most expensive card (by a long shot....actually it's probably close to the bottom). E95's are not my favorite set and they don't even have "cool" backs. Cicotte isn't even my favorite player from the era.

I just like the overall appearance. I love the bright red background. The cool "popped" collar. The lore behind Cicotte's role in the Black Sox Scandal. He pitched with the Tigers for one year (1905, and pitched in 3 games going 1-1 with a 3.50 ERA).

I had a PSA 2 once (about a year ago), but traded it away. I regretted trading it so I had to pick one back up. Now I'm happy to have one back in my collection, and this one is here to stay.....unless I upgrade it to a better condition one.

Here is a scan of my original:

I just love the pose, the other Cracker Jack I would love to have is the Speaker because of the glove on the back pocket.
