I found the one I had been after for a while earlier this year. The next big white whale type cards I will be after are a Babe Ruth RC or a PSA 10 86 Fleer Jordan. It could be a while before I can pull either of those off though.

For me and my limited budget, it's any SGC 10/PSA 1 Walter Johnson.

Since we're in the Post-War Baseball, 1980's - Present section, I'll go with the 1990 Topps (No Name) Frank Thomas.

I actually opened this thread back up to add this card. A personal favorite of mine and one I'd love to add to the collection.

I picked mine up a few months uncut sheet of the 1987 Bellingham Mariners then I was lucky enough to get it signed in person by Ken Griffey Jr.

My white whale of post 90's Maddux cards would have to be the 2007 Allen and Ginter original mini sketch card (by Dick Perez).

Although I never saw this card come to auction, I lost out on two other auctions for sketch cards of his produced by Topps during his playing years - simply because I failed to check back in and make a last minute bids. Because of that, I think this makes me only want this particular card even more.

About a decade ago
I let a hobby friend purchase via auction a 1980 Topps Pepsi Mike Schmidt production card.

I'd love to won that one day -- there are probably fewer than five examples in existence; I'm happy to own a proof card of such, but the production example would be a white whale.

My white whale is #404 Dick Brodowski from the 52 topps set. Just yesterday I was bidding on him, thinking I'd finally found a nice centered example, PSA 7. But every frigging number I put in, it couldn't top the other guy's high bid. Maybe it was a shill. Who knows. All I knew was for a card whose SMR is $395, I had bid $700 and STILL couldn't top out. I finally had to cry uncle. The search will go on.
