Help pick the MOST SIGNIFICANT card of the Junk Wax Era-1987-1993

A few days ago I asked my readership to help me pin down what years constitute junk wax.  In a close vote, we are going to go with 1987-1993. Don't want to step on toes with some other blogs that are doing something similar right now but I have actually wanted to do this for a while.  I want to have a tournament to crown the top 8 significant cards of the Junk Wax Era.  What significant means to me may not mean the same to you.  An 88 Donruss Steve Sax may be significant to you or it may be the Mo Rivera Rookie.  Not putting any restrictions on this one.  Taking all suggestions.  Looking for a top three from everyone that will participate.  Anyone that lists a top three in the comments will be entered in a prize drawing!

Please take a few moments and share your top three significant cards from the years of 1987-1993!! 

Look forward to seeing everyone's entries and then I will put together a bracket!
