Mays
Aaron
Mantle
Nolan Ryan
Musial
Ted Williams
Frank Robinson
Rickey Henderson

I always wanted a nice Ruth & Gehrig, but lacked the wherewithal to see it through. Just don't have the stomach for all the shenanigans associated with the forgeries and I never put in the effort to learn like I did for Mantle. Only 2 to 3 people I think I'd trust to hook me up and sometimes even they disagree. AND those are the good guys!.

Jackie Robinson
Casey Stengel
Roy Campanella
Roberto Clemente
Mickey Mantle
Joe Dimaggio
Ted Williams
Roger Maris
Sandy Koufax
Don Drysdale
Willie Mays
Hank Aaron

I know, that's more than 10. That's one of my problems... I can't stop

I can't argue with anyone on the above lists, but I would put Clemente, Munson, Jackie Robinson, and pre-accident Campy up to the top, for no other reason than they all died young-ish and before doing private signings/card shows (post accident Campy does not apply). Sure you can find all of these autos out there, but it's getting a bit harder to find a really really nice one. If you see the one you really like, you should probably jump on it.
