ListList YearPart of Koi's 'Best UFO Cases'Consensus ListIncluded in my analysisSourceReasoning
2
Alfred Lehmberg200631Isaackoi.comCouldn't locate date or source, but included base on confidence in Koi's reference and age of list
3
Andy Roberts200731Isaackoi.comStated "Top Ten list of ‘classic’ unresolved UFO cases"
4
APRO's list for Jacques Vallee196630Isaackoi.comExcluded due to it's age
5
Bill Chalker200731Isaackoi.comStated "personal top ten"
6
Brad Sparks199931Isaackoi.comStated "not ready to present a full Best Case list for OEH, but put on such a list"
7
Bruce Maccabee199931Isaackoi.comStated "ten UFO cases giving the best evidence for the ETH (but biased due to ones they peronsally had experience with)"
8
David Clarke200731Isaackoi.comStated "top ten list of 'classic' unresolved cases'
9
Dennis Balthaser200330Isaackoi.comStated "favorite cases" but also preferred “not to call them ‘my top 10 UFO cases’
10
Don Berliner200731Isaackoi.comStated "the top ten cases of World Ufology"
11
Dwight Connelly200430Isaackoi.comThe inclusion of Stan Romanek's case, and various crop circles, implant cases, and mutilation cases makes this list too general and distreputable
12
Fortean Times expert poll20079No0Isaackoi.comIndividual researches were polled separatey with an ineffective question. The personal top ten lists from the relevant researches have still been included.
13
Gary Heseltine200731Isaackoi.comStated "top ten cases"
14
Greg Bishop200730Isaackoi.comStated "I do not choose these from an evidentiary standpoint, they are simply personal favourites"
15
Hilary Evans200731Isaackoi.comStated "best cases"
16
Isaac Koi's Top 100200813Yes1Isaackoi.comList ranks by number of references across 963 UFO books. Unfortunately, books are not listed anywhere. Although, the other content on the site suggests the list is extremly credible. Nature of the list still lends towards most historically relevant and sensationalized cases.
17
J Allen HynekUnknown30Isaackoi.comNo known data, although some presumably exists
18
Jacques Vallee199031Isaackoi.comStated "best-authenticated close encounter incident in continental Europe"
19
Jacues Vallee's consensus poll19655Yes0Isaackoi.comSurvey of 29 UFO organizations.Jacques Vallee himself commented that the sightings nominated in his survey were “ranked practically in the order of the publicity they have received, regardless of their intrinsic value or their convincing character … Clearly, the group take it for granted that the most publicized cases are the most convincing, when even a small amount of research would have brought to light an entirely different type of reports” Although this was an ambitious poll performed by a very prestigious researcher, their own lack of confidence in the results and it's extreme age have let me to exclude it.
20
James Carrion200631Isaackoi.comStated "top ten cases"
21
James McDonald197230Isaackoi.comExcluded due to them not being stated as 'best cases' and to age
22
Jenny Randles200731Isaackoi.comStated "cases which interest her right now"
23
Jerry Clark (long list)199831Isaackoi.comStated "address many of the best cases on which rests the argument that UFOs may be extraordinary anomalies”. Unable to track years down for non-specific cases on the list (chose not to include them)
24
Jerry Clark (short list)199930Isaackoi.comStated "best cases which have stubbornly withstood the assults of pelicanists". Rather than include both lists by Clark and stack the redundant votes, I have opted to use his longer, more inclusive list.
25
Jerry Cohen201531Isaackoi.comStated "author's select cases"
26
Kevin Randle199831Isaackoi.comStated "favorite/good cases"
27
Mark Cashman199830Isaackoi.comStated “ten cases I chose as representative of those cases suggestive of the ETH, not the 10 best cases of all time regardless of whether they are suggestive of ETH”
28
National Enquirer Panel197210Yes0Isaackoi.comDid not produce enough effective results to include
29
NICAP's list for Jacques Vallee196630Isaackoi.comExcluded due to it's age
30
Nick Pope200731Isaackoi.comStated "cases that interested them the most"
31
Paul KimballUnknown30Isaackoi.comCouldn't locate date or source, unsure if this is redundant (based on the inclusion of Kimball's documentary work in later parts of the site)
32
Paul Kimball’s Expert poll20078Yes1Isaackoi.comKimball surveys 'a select group of leading researchers'. Although,was altered 'simply because it's television'. 1-5 were unaltered and only one was removed/added. Due to the work general done to produce this list, I feel it is still worth including.
33
Paul Kimball’s Vox Populi poll20067Yes0Isaackoi.comPaul Kimball has himself acknowledged that his poll was “hardly a scientific sampling”
34
Rich Reynolds200731Isaackoi.comArticle titled "Really Best Top Ten UFO Incidents"
35
Richard Dolan200230Isaackoi.comExlucded due to them being only implied best cases, also limited to 1941-1973
36
Richard Hall200131Isaackoi.comStated "cases which make the ETH the most likely interpretation"
37
Robert L Hall197230Isaackoi.comStated "examples of hard core cases", excluded due to its age
38
Robert Rosamund200731Isaackoi.comStated "remain unexplained and otherwise unanswered"
39
Rockefeller Briefing Document199511Yes1Isaackoi.comMUFON, CUFOS and FUFOR all endorsed as containing “the best available evidence for the existence of UFOs”.Unfortunate there been so little discusion regarding this document, it's critera, and cases. Strange.
40
Ronald Story198131Isaackoi.comStated "cases which represent the strongest UFO evidence on record"
41
Ronald Story’s poll19796No0Isaackoi.com"Contrary to the statements by Brad Sparks, the list published by Ronald Story was not a “consensus list."
42
Stanton Friedman200731Isaackoi.comStated "fast pass of best cases" (excluded 1999 short list)
43
Thomas E Bullard200731Isaackoi.comStated he studied these at length and were worthy to him. I simply added his single "most evidential" case to his list.
44
Kevin Randle2016No1http://kevinrandle.blogspot.com/2016/07/my-list-of-best-ufo-cases.html?m=1Sub-titled "My Best List of UFO Cases", but later states "As you will see, this is not a numbered list or a top ten list. It is a list of those cases I find interesting." Despite the contradiction I have included it since it is based on those he has investigated, witnesses he has interviewed, and locations he has visited.

ThoughtCo - Best Documented UFO Cases by Billy Booth2017No0https://www.thoughtco.com/the-best-documented-ufo-cases-3293399Although quite recent, not a stated 'best cases' list
46
u/adambunion's list (most upvoted list on r/UFOs)2013No1https://www.reddit.com/r/UFOs/comments/19gvld/i_compiled_a_short_list_of_the_best_ufo_cases/Although adambunion is not an established researcher, but so few users are willing to post their own best case lists with sources and then immediately revise them based on feedback. This is also representative of this particular online community.
