The Top 10 Most Expensive Baseball Cards

Friday Night Lists recently put out a list of a the Top 10 Most Expensive Baseball Cards. It's no surprise that The Honus Wagner T206 came in at #1. Here's a quick look at the others that made the list:

10) 1951 Bowman #305 Willie Mays
9) 1954 Bowman #664 Ted Williams
8) Goudey 1933 'Heads-Up' R323 #274 Joe DiMaggio
7) Goudey 1933 #53 Babe Ruth

Some of the entries are surprising and I've seen a number of other cards sell for higher than the prices that are listed in the to 10 list but it's a brave attempt to create a top 10 list. Hopefully it will encourage others to improve on the data in the list!
