Default Mount Rushmore of Football Cards

So, if you had to choose four cards to be on the Mount Rushmore of Football Cards, what would they be and why?

I'm gonna have to think a bit about this myself but wanted to open it up to everybody for their thoughts.

Post away!

Next question. Whats the Rushmore of defensive players?

57' Lane, 82' Taylor, 86' White have to be considered, right?

You can't exclude all the players from the pre-war era when guys went both ways from a defensive Rushmore. Mel Hein was the first NFL MVP and a charter member of the HOF, and he's remembered as a offensive center but it was his defensive play that was cited in his MVP award. But are we talking about players or about cards?

Based on performance of player, not value of card.
