Default Top high numbered cards?

Just curious - if you were making a list of the top / most desirable high-numbered cards that does NOT include 1952 Topps #311 - what would they be? What comes to mind for me are the '67 Brooks Robinson #600, and the '70 Nolan Ryan #712. But for the 1960's particularly, I know there are a ton of tough high series cards - and many that are commons. What's on your list?

The 1952 #407 Mathews comes to mind.

In addition to Seaver, there appear to be 10 other highs in 67 that are tough, all in the same row as Tom Terrific. 66 SP's can bedevil folks too.

As a Cubs fan, the '66 Billy Williams SP has been on my list for a while. It does not seem ultra rare, however. I may get on the auction bandwagon for one later this year - most BIN prices on eBay are high - even for mid-grade copies - and I don't want to spent $100 on it or anything - but I'm thinking in waiting out some reasonable auctions I should be able to score something decent.

The Seaver in almost any grade is ridiculous. One of the reasons I really considered not going after the '67 set (but did anyway...) A PSA 3-4 range card is still going to be between $300-400. Guess I just need to start saving. Most of the star cards I have in this set so far are at least 5's.
