Some phenomenal pieces of baseball memorabilia have emerged from America's closets over the last few decades.   T206 Wagner cards.  Babe Ruth minor league cards.  Papers from some of the earliest games ever played.   The whereabouts of others, though, remain a mystery.

Babe Ruth with the Red SoxStrange as it may seem in an era when virtually every moment is not only documented, but authenticated, there are a lot of historic items that were either never preserved or have been lost to the ravages of time.

What items would set the memorabilia market on fire if they somehow turned up?

A Babe Ruth Red Sox jersey and Bobby Thomson's 'Shot Heard Round the World' home run ball are on the list...but what else?

Forbes.com brought together a few dealers to discuss their picks.  They've got the story and a photo gallery.

  1. So IF the Chicago Cubs win the world series.. is the final out ball or game winning walk of home run ball that wins make the future Holy Grails of Baseball Memorabilia??

  2. The missing FIFA World Cup – thought to be melted down by thieves.

    The trophy was give to Brazil after winning the Cup for the 3d time in 1970.

    It was presented to every winner from 1930 to 1970 – and hidden in Italy during WWII.
