Default Mount Rushmore?

I`ve asked this question on various sports forums and thought it might be a worthwhile topic here as well. If you were to build a "Mt Rushmore" using any 4 cards which would they be? Also, please include a few reasons for a given selection. With the knowledge on this board I`m betting we can come up with some impressive thoughts. Thanx

52 Topps Mantle
65 Topps Namath
79 OPC Gretzky
86 Fleer Jordan

No reason for any explaination of these choices. The football and the baseball could be debated. The Mantle could be replaced by the Wagner and the Namath by Nagurski or Jimmy Brown. But that my choice and I'm stickimg with them.

I'll stay all baseball:

N173 Old Judge Anson
T206 Wagner
1933 Goudey Ruth
1952 Mantle

I would have loved to go with the 4 of the first 5 inducted, but these cards are my choice.

I would say from left to right I would have a:

T206 Walter Johnson portrait
T205 Addie Joss
Cobb (not a card but one of his on field photo poses where he is slightly looking off. Very nice young Cobb photo)
T205 Mathewson

I would call it MT. WACM
